More likely they were called into the questioning room, given an offer they couldn't refuse, and told they would be let off if they agreed to stick it to Armstrong.

I think this is more an issue of turf war rather than an issue over one rider. (see WE got him and you could not)
Not Guilty/Guilty perhaps, but what about the due process. You don’t just had a stack of deal induced confessions and then scream confess. (nobody expect the spanish inquisition! da da dummmmmmm)
the evidence should have been fully transparent, examined, sumbect to discovery, depostions, iow a full blown defense with the burden of proof to the accuser. NOT prover yourself innocent.
