Lance Armstrong's attorney strikes back at USADA report: "It's a witch hunt"

CNN's Erin Burnett talks to the attorney for Cyclist Lance Armstrong, Tim Herman about the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's report that announced Wednesday its plan to release more than 1,000 pages of evidence of doping against the seven-time Tour de Frane winner.

Evidence of Armstrong doping 'overwhelming,' agency says

Cyclist Lance Armstrong was part of "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen," the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency said Wednesday in preparing to release more than 1,000 pages of evidence in the case.

The evidence involving the U.S. Postal Service-sponsored cycling team encompasses "direct documentary evidence including financial payments, e-mails, scientific data and laboratory test results that further prove the use, possession and distribution of performance-enhancing drugs by Lance Armstrong," the agency said.

Armstrong lawyer Tim Herman dismissed what he called a "one-sided hatchet job" and a "government-funded witch hunt" against the seven-time Tour de France winner, who has consistently denied doping accusations.
