Despite comments Tuesday by the U.S. Attorney in Southern California saying he would not renew the investigation into Armstrong that he dropped last year, another arm of the government is again investigating Armstrong, this time for obstruction, witness tampering and intimidation, according to ABC News.
“Birotte does not speak for the federal government as a whole,” ABC quoted a high level source as saying of Andre Birotte, the U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California. “Agents are actively investigating Armstrong for obstruction, witness tampering and intimidation.”
That news came on the heels of an announcement by Andre Birotte, the U.S. Attorney in Los Angeles who shut down the two-year investigation into Armstrong last year, who said he had no regrets even though Armstrong has now acknowledged using banned substances.
According to sources familiar with the Armstrong case, agents investigating the seven-time Tour de France winner who was stripped of his titles and banned for life from the sport by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, were outraged that Birotte dropped the case, reportedly because of political pressure and without discussing it investigators who were reportedly recommending an indictment.
