Friday – February 3. United States Attorney Andre Birotte Jr. issues a press release stating that the ongoing investigation into Lance Armstrong and allegations of a doping program partially funded by US Postal Service sponsorship dollars has been concluded, and no charges were filed. The press release states that no charges will be filed. USADA CEO Travis T. Tygart was quick to issue his own statement ( PDF ):
Unlike the U.S. Attorney, USADA’s job is to protect clean sport rather than enforce specific criminal laws. Our investigation into doping in the sport of cycling is continuing and we look forward to obtaining the information developed during the federal investigation.
So the criminal investigation is over. What do you think? Are you happy with the findings? Do you feel something is lacking? Do you wonder what the investigation actually … well, investigated?
