Toobin on end of Armstrong doping investigation: 'This guy is cleared. It's done. It's over.'

Federal prosecutors Friday announced they would close the investigation into alleged doping by seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong, who has consistently denied using performance enhancing drugs. CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said the decision–which comes after years of rumors, reports and ongoing investigations–means "this guy is cleared. It's done. It's over."

Armstrong released a statement expressing gratitude for the Justice Department's decision, saying he looked forward to focusing on fatherhood, competition, and his work against cancer–without the investigation hanging over him.

    Good to see closure on this, but the French will never admit he was really that good....
