US government to join lawsuit against Armstrong -- reports
Lance Armstrong faces a powerful new adversary — the United States government.

THE US DEPARTMENT of Justice decided today to join a doping lawsuit filed by one of Lance Armstrong’s former team-mates, Floyd Landis, alleging that the disgraced cycling champion defrauded government sponsors.

NBC News and the Wall Street Journal reported the government will add its weight to the suit and claim that Armstrong defrauded tax-payers by using performance-enhancing drugs while on the state-funded US Postal Service team.
