The US Anti Doping Agency calling him the king -- of the most sophisticated doping program in recent sports history.
The intricate details of its lengthy investigation into whether he used performance enhancing drugs he might he demanded this report he wanted to know exactly who said what about -- well they complied.
The more than 200 page report is filled with testimony from eleven of his former teammates.
Who say they saw him doping.
To help him win every single one of his record seven Tour de France titles and Natalie that they say he demanded that his top teammates do the very same things so that he could win.
This is -- same Lance Armstrong who while the world by beating cancer.
And then going on to Windows 7 titles.
For years he denied doping.
In February federal authorities decided to drop it criminal investigation into the matter but the US Anti Doping Agency decided to do its own investigation.
Very different standards of proof.
And in August.
When they said that he was guilty of doping cheating for years.
He decided that -- not the fight it.
As a result he was stripped of his title.
His lawyer calls the agency report a one sided hatchet job but now that all the details are out.
-- to do no wrong site -- be facing a string of new legal troubles.
And now Mercedes Colin -- a Fox News legal analyst and -- right dollar also Fox's legal analyst.
I don't listen I don't pay that close attention sports but I know the legacy of the -- the -- strong and you know hey how we came back and you know we overcame adversity and this report is just -- damning Mercedes I'm not saying it's true I don't know whether it's true but as a lawyer.
It is standing 26 witnesses eleven former teammates and not just people have an axe to grind people like.
Hey Kathy forgive because I don't follow the sport one of his closest and most loyal teammates -- years was one of the one who came out and said look he did it.
And he pressured -- -- -- -- your thoughts.
It's so true Megan and I don't know how -- can come out from under this and you're exactly right it -- you look at this report -- 26 affidavits from different individuals where there's smoke there's fire you can't possibly say.
All those 46 people are -- All those 46 people have axes to -- all of these people had some motivation.
To lie under we'll know that the crime in and of itself you'll light of the federal authorities you've got you've got perjury charges winning at the foot of your door.
This is not something that they did and didn't take it lightly.
-- 200 page report has a lot of evidence.
A lot of the doping information they keep -- in terms of his blood tests as well.
All of this is so damning chemistry as a reminder and a we're looking at.
He is he is saying or have they are saying his response are there has bad that these are all -- serial perjury -- all of them are serial perjury is he's the one who's telling the truth.
They're getting some sort of a deal they have a benefit to say what they have to say it's what we see here all the time in federal court.
About cooperated in the dead dead the rewarded the end of the stick to chart on this the end of -- -- is so great for those people may have done that dotted all Ehrenreich okay but here's the question Megan.
You have the United States attorney of Los Angeles which is a pretty big office said I believe it may be the biggest.
They do a two -- investigation they have.
Assistant US attorneys traveling to Europe to Italy to France -- what -- counterparts there.
Spending I'm sure hundreds of thousands of dollars.
For two years to dismiss it.
Wolf two words are there a lot of it was beyond what what he had a jury nullification.
That can't tell Don I have three words Oreo.
Statute of limitations there -- statute of limitations problems with the case as well because the time was running out.
It's much -- -- that's pretty go to the opposite side of this break.
Reward be right back.
All right Mercedes and -- back with me now so you look at this report that goes on and on about -- That that link of the cheating in the extent to which it wasn't just this doping the blood boosting hormone EPO that they said he was that they found they claim they found at six samples.
From his blood that they saved but they say they had especially from all the teammates that said he pressured -- to do it.
And not just that but his ex wife pressured to herd of raping and cores on pills and oil.
That he dropped that one race to be -- it yet tested for testosterone which he took I mean the list of cheating Arthur that they did tales audit is so intricate.
What normal person's gonna walk away from this making everyone's lying but Armstrong.
I can't disagree with what you say that I would lose credibility -- my idea is that however I have to look at this from a -- -- -- of a lawyer.
He had been tested and retested and quadruple we tested before every -- test showed a problem out.
That was something he has never been sanctioned by by the people like she did the tests at the time of the race and I just like to go back to the US attorney because.
-- Mercedes and I do we are up against US attorney's office all the time.
Facial rarely put in those kinds of resources and failed to make an arrest they are not -- not regular rest because of jury -- we don't.
I'm happy he really can't say eating cure cancer and regarding the special occasions -- Rico claim they would be able to keep his activity in the but it has a lot.
Problem though they've stepped back and that we're gonna take down a hero we're gonna take down a man that that had that actually gathered up half a billion dollars to cure cancer.
A man who beat all the -- and did what he did despite this cancer that's what they that they.
-- thinking that I.
Good -- -- we think it did or didn't as the attorney client did.
Didn't have a much bigger problem right right it's indicative -- -- got good for him for for the help that he's given to people who are suffering but.
If this is true it's -- he's a liar and it sheets he's a liar and a cheat and he's no example.
For children because he didn't do it honestly -- that he lied to all of us.
And is not somebody get a tit for us to hold up on a pedestal and that's a sad and indicative of the bigger problem haven't sports today -- I'll give you -- were and that.
-- and your right if it means if it's true it's win at all cost and -- doesn't matter of if you're cheating and that's not the way to go.
I -- I just I pause because there was so many other entities that have cleared him including United States government.
That I just I'm not gonna -- to the ultimate conclusion that -- Well let the viewers jump that they think so are so it -- panel thank you.
