AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Lance Armstrong's attorney says the cyclist won't interview under oath with a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency official who wanted Armstrong to tell them all he knows about doping.

USADA officials had said Armstrong must speak with them if he hoped to reduce his lifetime ban from sports. Wednesday was the deadline for him to agree to interview.

After more than two months of negotiations with USADA, Armstrong attorney Tim Herman now says Armstrong won't participate in a process designed "only to demonize selected individuals."

Armstrong has said he is willing to participate in an international effort to clean up cycling.

For years, Armstrong denied using performance-enhancing drugs. But in January admitted doping to win seven Tour de France titles - which already had been stripped by USADA after a lengthy investigation.
