CORBIN — “What do you want to say about Emma O’Reilly?” Winfrey asked.
“She, she’s one of these people that I have to apologize to. She’s one of these people that got run over, got bullied.”
“You sued her?”
“To be honest, Oprah, we sued so many people I don’t even,” Armstrong said, then paused, “I’m sure we did.”
Near the end of the first interview installment, Winfrey asked about a federal investigation of Armstrong that was dropped by the Justice Department without charges.
“When they dropped the case, did you think: ‘Now, finally over, done, victory’?”
Armstrong looked up. He exhaled.
“It’s hard to define victory,” he said. “But I thought I was out of the woods.”
