It is publicly funded by US taxpayers. What plea bargains did they offer the likes of Hamilton and Landis to drop Armstrong in the s***?

Of course not, USADA are just breaking their own rules and trying to nullify every result Armstrong has had in the last 14 years.

They had a lot to gain, not being pursued vigorously by the USADA themselves. "Oh, we'll go soft on you as long as you testify that you saw Armstrong doping. Resist, and we'll do our worst".
