Wiggins and Team Sky were accused of a tactical use of corticosteroid triamcinolone to improve performance during the 2012 season by the British parliament's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport select committee report, which was published on Monday.
"It's a very grey area with these substances because they're not permitted in competition but you're allowed to take them out of competition". "I just saw the article from a certain [outlet], it said, "You have to tell the truth.' Well, it seems that it was not the truth, if I correctly understand what is behind this".
The Australian, however, maintains others still have questions to answer.
The 32-year-old Team Sky rider is now competing at the Tirreno-Adriatico race in Italy and intends to ride May's Giro d'Italia and this summer's Tour de France. UKAD was unable to establish what was in the package, and Brailsford told the committee that the team doctor, Richard Freeman, assured him the bag contained Fluimicil, a legal decongestant.
The former London 2012 chief and double Olympic 1,500 metres champion said: "We've read the report and absorbed it and I did not mislead the committee".
Vaughters, whose Slipstream Sports squad now rides as EF Education First-Drapac, acknowledged that Wiggins had used TUEs for salbutamol and an inhaled corticosteroid in 2009, but he insisted that they did not compare with the allegations of TUE abuse in 2012.
"If I technically did need it and could have it, I'd probably still not have it purely because of the perception of what TUEs are seen as now, which is wrong in itself, totally wrong". "What you have to remember is that Brad and I worked in isolation, when the source says this happened. I know how the dynamics work and Brailsford has to take responsibility for what was going on". I can not account for answers that have been attached to different questions.
"I've never seen anything like that, it's not my experience within the team".
If the case is still pending at the start of the Tour, Lappartient says he will ask the team to consider keeping Froome from defending his title.
Thomas, speaking to BBC Sport Wales, added: "I haven't [taken a TUE], but if I had, it's not breaking the rules". That's absolute rubbish. I've seen that accusation but no, that's complete rubbish.
"Team Sky is happy to co-operate with any investigation by the UCI and we would welcome further scrutiny of the Select Committee's report", the team stated.
Cedric Vasseur, the manager of fellow MPCC team Cofidis, did not hold back when asked about the report's findings on Team Sky. I'm proud to be part of the team.
"Dave has brought all those people together and we've got a fantastic group". The British team has long resisted pressure to join the MPCC, which follows agreed anti-doping protocols.
UKAD last November concluded an investigation into whether Team Sky violated the anti-doping rules when it arranged to have a medical package transported from British Cycling headquarters to the squad at the Criterium du Dauphine in France by Simon Cope.
Lappartient said that even though legally, Froome has a right to ride, having him at the Tour de France before his case was resolved "would be a disaster for the image of cycling".
