Dropping a GJ Investigation

Might provide some insight into how long you may have to wait to learn about the Armstrong/Postal etc. investigation.

An example of a surprising case that the feds didn't charge.

Another year or two waiting for USADA investigations to come to a close?

Still, the feds not prosecuting is amazing, considering the effort put in by Novitzky and co.


Well, it only took them 4 months to "turn over every stone" and file their sanctions. That is pretty fast for the USADA I bet. Maybe a Rush Job?

Hopefully no inappropriate or illegal use of secret GJ Testimony yikes.

... to summarize the insightful and cogent arguments that have been enunciated here concerning Lance A and doping.

"No he didn't!"
"Yes he did!"
"No he didn't!"
"Yes he did!"
"No he didn't!"
"Yes he did!"

"Well you're dumb!"
"You're dumber!"
"Well you're dumb!"
"You're dumber!"
"Well you're dumb!"
"You're dumber!"

"And your Mother's dumb too!"
"And your Mother's dumb times 10!"
"Oh yeah?!
"Yeah!"

(please ignore any facts in the case and repeat until every forum member with a brain dies of boredom.)

In any event, what a difference a year makes!

More from Velonation:
United States Attorney Birotte says there are currently no plans to bring criminal charges against Armstrong

... "Meanwhile a Qui Tam whistleblower suit continues to progress towards a hearing. It was launched by Armstrong’s former US Postal Service team-mate Floyd Landis. The US Justice Department has the option of joining that case, but has not yet announced if it will do so or not."

It has seemed very unlikely that the federal case will be re-opened in recents weeks, it would be very embarrassing for Birotte if people keep asking why it was closed in the first place.

Lance refusing to pay up to SCA, IMO, increases the chances slightly that the US Justice system joins the case. It makes him seen to be not totally remorseful and gives him more public attention which isn't really what he wants right now.
