June 10/10 10:20 am - Federal Prosecutor Assigned to Investigate Landis Claims

Posted by Editoress on 06/10/10

The New York Daily News is reporting that the U.S. Justice Department has assigned a federal prosecutor to the FDA probe into accusations by Floyd Landis that Lance Armstrong and others doped.

Doug Miller, who is an assistant U.S. Attorney in Los Angeles, will work with investigator Jeff Novitzky in the investigation. Miller was involved in the Balco investigation into doping by pro athletes in baseball and athletics. The addition of a federal U.S. Attorney will assist Novitzky in obtaining search warrants and making agreements with potential witnesses, which could help build a case to take before a grand jury for indictments against individuals named by Landis.

E-mails from Landis to cycling officials became widely circulated during last month's Tour of California. In the letters he accused Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer, David Zabriskie, Canada's Michael Barry and others of doping during the time he rode with them on the U.S. Postal/Discovery teams. Landis was subsequently caught for using performance enhancing drugs while winning the 2006 Tour de France, and stripped of his title. After a length process, Landis lost his final appeal to retain his title.

All individuals named have denied Landis' allegations, and Landis admits that he has no proof.
