"Never too late for Armstrong to tell the truth." ~~ Travis Tygart, USADA Chief (United States Anti-Doping Agency). The United States Anti-Doping Agency is a non-profit, non-governmental organization.
Breaking news just minutes ago, news leaked from his Oprah Winfrey interview, done a few hours ago in his home in Austin, Texas, that Lance Armstrong indeed did in fact use performance enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France.
Soon afterward, Winfrey tweeted today at about 6:19 pm (NYC Eastern time) the following: "Just wrapped with @lancearmstrong More than 2 1/2 hours. He came READY!"
Oprah is scheduled to appear on "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday to discuss the interview and promote it.
According to FoxNews, many sources said his admittance was emotional and he admitted by saying “I doped.” He was at the forefront of the most sophisticated doping scheme ever. Armstrong is still worth over $100 million and he could face perjury charges.
What do you think? Should Armstrong be indicted for additional doping and perjury charges? Should he go to jail?
