The U.S. Department of Justice has joined the whistle-blower lawsuit against cyclist Lance Armstrong that was originally filed by a former teammate, an attorney for Armstrong said Friday.

Armstrong, the onetime legendary and now disgraced cyclist, has admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs.

The lawsuit accuses the team's former management of defrauding the federal government of millions of dollars because it knew about the drug use and didn't do anything.
