I missed actually watching this program because 1) I pretty much can’t think of any reason to watch Larry King Live, and 2) I have no life. Now that we’ve cleared that up…
Landis appeared on CNN’s Larry King Live television show on Thursday night for an interview after the French justice system issued a warrant for his arrest in connection to a computer hacking into the French anti-doping lab’s system.
And, no surprise here, The Floyd says, essentially, “they tried to make me go to rehab, but I said no, no, no…”
Landis denied allegations by French Anti-Doping Lab (AFLD) director Pierre Bordry that his defense team used improperly obtained documents during the trial relating to his appeal of the doping charges.
The lab’s computer was infected with a “trojan horse” virus, and French authorities claim the virus was used by an external operator to obtain files from the lab pertaining to Landis’ case. Those files were found on the computer of a French expatriate living in Morocco.
Bordry claimed that the IP address of the computer of Landis’ coach Arnie Baker matched the IP address from an email which contained the virus. The pair were allegedly called to testify to the French court in the case, but failed to appear last summer.
They matched the IP address to Baker? Whoo boy, this might get interesting.by
