The U.S. Attorney's office is reportedly in the midst of an active criminal investigation of the disgraced, 41-year-old former Tour de France champion.

According to an ABC source, who agreed to speak to the network the condition that his name and position were not used regarding the matter:

"Agents are actively investigating Armstrong for obstruction, witness tampering and intimidation" at various points in his (falsely) acclaimed career.

The revelation marks a contrast with the U.S. Attorney for Southern California, Andre Birotte, whose own criminal inquiry of Armstrong was/is underway.

Birotte's office spent nearly two years investigating Armstrong for crimes reportedly including drug distribution, fraud and conspiracy, only to drop the case in 2012.

Sources at the time said that agents had recommended an indictment against Armstrong. and could not understand why the case was suddenly dropped.

Today, a high level source told ABC News, "Birotte does not speak for the federal government as a whole." Armstrong had no immediate comment.

In his much publicized interview with Oprah in January, Armstrong admitted he used PEDs and bullied people throughout his illustrious career.

One of those he bullied, Betsy Andreu, said she was furious when she head his admission after all these years ... she likely isn't alone there.
