Lance Armstrong faces a powerful new adversary -- the United States government.
The Justice Department will notify a federal court Friday that it is joining one of his former racing teammates in suing him for using performance-enhancing drugs during the Tour de France, legal sources told NBC News.
The government is signing on to a lawsuit filed two years ago by Floyd Landis, one of Armstrong's former Tour de France teammates who has already admitted cheating. Among its claims: Landis saw Armstrong store and then re-inject his own blood to boost his performance, and Armstrong twice gave Landis banned hormones before races.
The governments legal theory in joining the lawsuit is that when Armstrong agreed to race for the U.S. Postal Service team a decade ago in the Tour de France, he defrauded the government, violating its strict ban on illegal drugs, all the while claiming he did not use them.

Voter fraud is rampant--one voter in Ohio voted, reportedly six times in the last election.
Holder is focusing on a guy who rides a bicycle.
This whole damned administration and most of Congress and our courts system is retarded!
This nation is sinking fast into the cesspool of Obamaism and this mustachioed fool is degrading the DOJ even more...if that’s possible!
The Obama Regime....easy to despise.
Well Lance supported Obama during the Election so I really don’t have sympathy for him except for being stupid for supporting the usurper. He probably thought he will get a pass being a FOO (Friend Of Obama. Yes your right there are more important issues to tackle in the JUST US Dept. I guess Eric Holder (Obama Butt Boy) thinks it is better to go after a white boy who rides bicycle.
If Armstrong was black? That’s the question Holder needs to answer.
Holder is focusing on a “white”guy who rides a bicycle.
Actually I read at another site of US Attoney shocking many when he dropped in 2011 a case (with no explanation) againt Armstrong.
If his name were Lucius Da’Rell Armstrong, the DOJ wouldn’t even notice.
Exactly. He is white therefore a target.
I ahve no use for Armstrong, but it isn’t up to Holder to harass him.
The scum bag con man needs to be sued to get back the taxpayer’s dollars.
What a despicable human being Lance Armstrong is, he ranks up there with the worst of democrat politicians who are sociopathic liars.
“Yes your right there are more important issues to tackle in the JUST US Dept. I guess Eric Holder (Obama Butt Boy) thinks it is better to go after a white boy who rides bicycle.”
Well, it IS so much easier than going after the President who is responsible for so many American and Mexican deaths through Fast and Furious OR the Benghazi screw up.
Your estimation of Eric Holder is much too high. Much too high.
