i was behind a cop and he pulled over and got behind me and pulled me over. He asked me if i knew i was speeding because he said he was doing 70 mph and i was right behind him. I told him i was not under the impression i had been speeding but he gave me a ticket for a expired lisences which i was on route to get when he pulled me over. was it legal for him to pull me over like that with out radar and admitting he was speedin in a 55pmh so i had to be as well since i was behind him. My lisence expired 7 13 12 and got pulled over 8 7 12.

Of course it is legal for him to stop you for speeding when it was pretty obvious you were speeding. I am not sure why you think otherwise.
Get a lawyer before you continue to outsmart yourself. Your conviction for the expired license will suspend your license, get you a hefty fine and may land you in jail. A lawyer may actually help with what may be a very bad outcome.
Most speeding stops occur because of an officer's visual observations. Even when they use radar and laser initially they decide who to clock based on their visual.
