Testimony Over in McDonnell Trial

The United States has rested its case in the corruption trial against former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen, and closing arguments are set for today (August 29). Federal prosecutors rested  after testimony from their final witness, an FBI agent who analyzed theMcDonnell's calendar entries to illustrate that Virginia’s former first couple spent three quarters of their nights together under the same roof during the 22 months subject to the investigation. Defense attorneys countered that the Governor returned very late on some of those nights and spent many of them working from home. While exiting the court, Bob McDonnell told reporters he has confidence in the judicial system, and amazing faith in God and his family. Asked if he forgives Williams, the former governor said “Sure.”
