Report: A second U.S. Attorney in California to probe Lance Armstrong, this time for obstruction, witness tampering and intimidation [TLR Note:TLR is of the opinion key to understanding reason behind prior decision to NOT prosecute Armstrong has to do with 1 – events dealing with John Keker, Chris Young, Tony West, Assistant US Attorney Angela Davis ties to Jon Streeter 2- two financial donations by Armstrong just prior to decision]

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.

  • Five Yards is sufficient distance 2020/06/04
    Law enforcement didn’t recently start abusing citizens. Indeed, they’ve been abusing citizens since police departments were created. Today, nearly every citizen has a high resolution still & video camera on them in the form of a cell phone. Dash cameras that can be turned to record a police stop are commonplace. Body cameras are now […]

  • Another round of construction stimulus? 2020/05/25
    Today, they say that some 42% of those jobs where people were laid off will not return anytime soon. Much like the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act provided billions for shovel ready projects, it may happen again. But will the judicial council drop the ball again and refuse the money AGAIN? Probably. They dislike the […]

  • The number of county courts open today should be zero. 2020/03/19
    Social isolation and maintaining a six foot distance from each other is critical to flattening the curve. It’s entirely irresponsible to require in-person appearances of anyone when social isolation cannot be maintained. Any court requiring people to appear is issuing the equivalent of a death sentence for some and a sickness sentence for others. That’s […] […]

  • Give more money to the Judicial Council for Court Construction? Have we gone mad in Sacramento? 2019/09/06
    Below is a judicial branch synopsis from a legislative analysis of infrastructure needs for the state. I think it is prudent to point out that the judicial council only feigns adhesion to fraud, waste and abuse laws and actually worked aggressively to weaken the laws pertaining to judicial branch whistleblowers. They did this by creating […]

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]
