Not necessarily. Senior mafia figures have been rewarded in plea bargains for being "cooperating witnesses"
Also this is not just a "Lance thing" There were many involved not just lance, the team was systematic doping before Armstrong was ever involved as Mercier said, so fingers point elsewhere to "who started it and made it happen" to for example a very rich Thomas Weisel who is probably also good for the money.
In any event these same links have been on the Qui Tam thread for some time - more information is in the CBS news article I put up a long time ago . Decision day is tomorrow for whether they join Qui Tam - although I gather DoJ can launch their own action without Landis - which I would prefer, since I do not see why Landis should get rich out of this.
