Armstrong was making his first public comments since USADA's evidence report was unveiled

One of Lance Armstrong’s agents reportedly offered $250,000 to the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) in 2004 which was immediately rejected by the organization. ’60 Minutes Sports’ will telecast the explosive segment on Wednesday.

“It was a clear conflict of interest for USADA. We had no hesitation in rejecting that offer,” the NYDailyNews quoted the agency’s CEO Travis Tygart as saying to correspondent Scott Pelley.
