As reported, on Saturday, Lance Armstrong has admitted that he did indeed used drugs during his legendary cycling career, which he lied about about for years.He made the admission during an interview with Oprah, which is scheduled to be aired on Thursday on the OWN Network, but now it's being reported that the U.S. Justice Department may join a federal whistleblower lawsuit against Armstrong.According to the Wall Street Journal, a federal law enforcement official, claims that Armstrong is trying to seek reconciliation with Floyd Landis as part of his overall strategy in confessing to using performance-enhancing drugs, but thus far, it's not working.Landis has been hostile to Armstrong because of his former teammate's previous attacks against him. Landis was the first to come out and accuse Armstrong of using drugs, prompting Armstrong and his attorneys to fire back and portray him as a fraud.
