7:10 pm
>> shepard: the 7-time tour de france winner and live strong foundation starter lance armstrong faces new accusations
7:11 pm
tonight that could possibly cost the former cyclist all of his biggest titles. the united states antidoping agency accuses lance armstrong and five former associates of a massive doping conspiracy. the u.s. ada is described as a quasigovernment agency that oversees antidoping in olympic sports. it does not have the ability to bring criminal charges. multiple riders with first hand knowledge according to the agency will testify that lance armstrong used the synthetic drug epo blood tran fusions testosterone and other substances from 1988 to 2005 and accuses lance armstrong are giving the drugs to other cyclists. earlier this year the feds closed earlier allegations and brought no criminal charges. lance armstrong called the new allegations a witch hunt on
7:12 pm
twitter and released a statement saying i never doped and unlike many of my accusers i have competed as an endurance athlete for 25 years with no spike in performance. passed more than 500 tests and never failed one. that part we can confirm. trace gallagher with the news. aside from it witnesses what other o evidence does this agency have? >> well, the antidoping agency says it collected blood samples from lance armstrong, shep in 2009 and 2010 and the samples are fully consistent with blood ma nip lakes. what they are alleging is that armstrong injected hormones into his blood to increase his red blood cell count which allows the blood to carry more oxygen and if you are an endurance athlete that is a huge advantage. like you said, this cannot land him in jail but it can certainly hurt his reputation. listen. >> if they take the titles away and basically say all of that good stuff that lance armstrong did over these years he did it
7:13 pm
buy cheating it really takes away the validity of what he has done and i really think that you would be seeing some of the people taking the live strong bracelets off. >> lance armstrong wonders why if other cyclists admitted to doping why they also were not charge the by the agency and the answer we do not have. >> shepard: of course, the criminal investigation is over so no actual criminal charges possible or no? >> it is possible. but it is unlikely. and here is why. the u.s. attorney in los angeles spent two years investigating this including hearing some very incriminating testimony from several of lance armstrong's former teammates but not only did they close the investigation there was no explanation ever given to why they closed the investigation so now to reopen it experts say they would need a very good reason. listen. >> the fact that the government closed its case on armstrong would require a pretty high
7:14 pm
burden for them to reopen it. there is no legal burden. they could do it tomorrow morning if they wanted to. i think given choice of resources and he has already gone through this, i would think the new evidence would have to be pretty substantial. >> because of the antidoping agency's allegations, lance armstrong is no longer allowed to compete in triathalons which he has been doing since 2011. he was supposed to compete in one the end of june in france. >> shepard: trace gallagher live for us tonight. thanks. the disaster has happened and now the sucker punch for the federal prosecutors. john edwards is a completely free man. the justice department reports it will not retry him on charges he used campaign cash to hide his pregnant mistress from the world. the defense insisted the money was a personal gift and not a a political donation. last month the jury found the former senator and presidential candidate not guilty on one count but dead locked on the

7:21 pm
we are bigger with a mightier economy with just 5% of the world about's population. >> shepard: why did the drop in the poll happen? >> 2008's recession everybody saw what happened and thought we were having troubles and would never come back. china holds $1.1 trillion of our debt. people thought that was a problem for us. if you look back to 2008 there was a similar survey conduct. 14 nations. and at that time 45% thought the u.s. was the big leader. only 22% thought china was the big leader. all depends on when you ask. it is like a popularity contest. >> shepard: doesn't really matter they think, does it? >> no, it doesn't. >> shepard: glad we spent all this time on it. great to see you, thanks. wow. russian soccer association will have to pay a $150,000 fine after russian fans reportedly attacked polish stadium employees last friday. we are told a russian fan threw
