Not really a surprise to those watching. Federal charges in a Federal Court with an Obama judge and prosecutor, who instructed the jury that holding a door for Mr. Williams was considered a favor.

Everyone agreed they broke no Virginia law. You can bet Washington politicians are writing checks returning money today, knowing they could be next.

Not guilty on any of the counts of lying. In other words, they told the truth. That's good to know.

In fact, the only one who is known to have lied in this entire saga is the one who received total immunity to testify, Mr. Williams.

Can't wait to learn which judge will hear the appeal.

In any case, they are as politically as dead as Joan Rivers, and will have to settle for some big money job when they leave club fed.

What a bunch of whiners. Twelve people agreed on the verdict in a remarkably short amount of time for the number of counts. They must have been virtually unanimous right from the start. Clearly, they didn't buy the bullshit 'defense'.

You know damn well he's guilty of corruption. You just don't want to admit it. Democrat or Republican, we should be happy that a politician is finally being held accountable.

This is just a reminder that last year, prosecutors gave then-Gov. Robert F. McDonnell a chance to avoid any charges for his wife. Maureen McDonnell’s attorney told federal prosecutors that she felt responsible for the situation and asked if there was a way to avoid any charges for her husband.

As the Washington Post's Rosalind S. Helderman and Carol D. Leonnig reported, the prosecutors suggested something else:

Instead, months later, authorities proposed that then-Gov. Robert F. McDonnell plead guilty to one felony fraud charge that had nothing to do with corruption in office and his wife would avoid charges altogether.

McDonnell rejected the offer. Robert and Maureen McDonnell were jointly charged in January.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D), who took over the office previously held by Robert F. McDonnell (R) in January, released a statement a short time after the verdict was announced.

“I am deeply saddened by the events of the trial that ended in today’s verdict, and the impact it has had on our Commonwealth’s reputation for honesty and clean government,” McAuliffe said. “Dorothy and I will continue to pray for the McDonnell family and for everyone who was affected by this trial.

It is too early to consider a pardon or clemency. We must wait until the criminal justice system plays out. There is also a civil matter to be addressed by the judge.”

Also I don't believe a Virginia governor can grant pardons for Federal offenses. He could try to encourage the president to grant one.

You are implying bias, which you don't know exists. Clearly, you would have been happier with a Bush appointee.

Oh, please. The judge broadly interpreted the term 'official acts', as he is entitled to do.

He was being tried on Federal charges. And Virginia law is notoriously lax on politicians.

> You can bet Washington politicians are writing checks returning money today, knowing they could be next.

Good! It's about time.

> Not guilty on any of the counts of lying.

Not guilty of making false statements on a loan application. GUILTY on ELEVEN counts OF PUBLIC CORRUPTION.

Pathetic, convoluted logic.

You don't know anything.

Lied about what? He seemed pretty straight forward on the witness stand. He had no reason to lie, since he had immunity. Moreover, he's a businessman - and he wasn't on trial.

> Can't wait to learn which judge will hear the appeal.

Yes, that will be interesting. Good luck getting 11 guilty counts overturned.

> In any case, they are as politically as dead as Joan Rivers,

Thank God for small favors. This man was a potential Presidential candidate.

very surprised


while Bob did accept gift of $85k - gifts aren't illegal



they never proved the money was mis-spent election money, it wasn't.

they never proved the money was a pay for play scheme: the gifter received no benefit from taxpayers or by gov. also in recent VERY IMPORTANT CASE "Citizens v. U.S.A", USSC ruled in favor of allowing congress to pay for play: to take bribes to some extent on hill. But Bob didn't.

they never proved the taxpayer lost a dime.

Only thing they didn't accuse him of is golf. wow - obama likes golf.

Bob may have been gifted "too much" however. It still remains to be proven that taxpayers are owed a dime of it.

Hell, Williams, the guy involved in bribing McDonnell even testified against McDonnell.

As far as Obama having some to do it. That's a lot of bullshit.

A 7-man, 5-woman jury picked by McDonnell's attorney returned its findings on the third day of deliberations, Guilty.

A couple of things to point out.

Drug Dealers, Rapists dont do that much Fed time. McD did not rip off thousands of people takeing their investments. If the charges stick hes a felon, which he is right now,after conviction, and thus there goes his law license. His income..He will get a small pension for his Army reserve service, His Atty Gen service, his Gov. service. But that will all be about enough to rent a apt in FXCO.

I understand we are all human and I do believe faith can be a powerful and positive thing. It can also be a total bag of crap intended to fool the low information people. That is the evil side of religion and its every bit as present as the good aspects of faith.

It certainly affected federal prosecutors. Federal crimes have a way of doing that, you know. Stupid dumbshit.

I don't think Virginia governors have pardon powers - it's tough to get a pardon in Virginia. You have to have been found innocent after conviction with new evidence, and must have maintained your innocence all along - if you ever took a plea bargain, no pardon. McDonnell's only hope now is on appeal.

>Asshole Report #14-5057

The Major Asshole is back! Congress is back in session huh party line Dem hack. Missed all your amusing names moron and laughing my ass off with the party line report.

Now dumbfuck. McDonnell did nothing that bad. Just got some stupid loans and gifts from Johnny boy which his wife had more to do with them Bob
Never did anything with his office for Johhny.. Bob walks in time. Get over it. You dumbo nitwit, Goober.

> His income..He will get a small pension for his Army reserve service, His Atty Gen service, his Gov. service

Now For your immense enjoyment He loses his military pension with a felony. And his Va State pensions as well as he's in the VRS retirement system and he signed into law the bill stripping State pensioners of their pensions if they commit felonies while in the state service. And he would be immediately disbarred from law practice upon the felony conviction.

Laugh Now Cry later as Bob will rise again...

Now others:
No a Virginia Governor can not pardon McDonnell as its a federal crime he's been convicted off. The President can let him off or out of jail but to do so he would have to pardon him, thats wiping the slate clean and thats not going to happen. Presidents can also reduce a federal death sentence to life but they can not simply reduce a sentence.

Stupid right-wing fucktard. Nobody went anywhere to begin with. God, you sorry-ass fuckers are DUMB!!

Eleven counts of corruption may not seem "that bad" to a chronic right-wing dumbfuck, but the law takes a very different view, you worthless goober moron.

Right. He won't get life without parole. Sadly.

> Laugh Now Cry later as Bob will rise again...

Depends how well selling apples on the sidewalk works out for him. LOL!!! Rising star. LOL!!! Sooner a pathetic Medicaid basket case.

I disagree - believing in sky-gods is perfectly fine and I believe can lead to peaceful and productive meditation (read prayer). Its when you insist that others believe in YOUR sky-god that the evil moves in. The Gov. may genuinely believe in his sky-god but that should have nothing to do with getting elected or making laws.

He loses his then, right?

so Barbie and ken finally received a consequence. must be nice going this far in life as blonde people.

turning down the single count plea to put his family on the stand shows his love of self and arrogance. no wonder his wife was so unahappy. she gave up her life for his career, she bore 5 children for him, he threw her under the bus and brought the kids in to help him. what a disgusting display of humanity.

For all of you out there who think this will be overturned on appeal, I will say that this case came down to one single question. Would the McDonnell's have been given any of the gifts/loans if he had not been the Governor? The answer is no. So they are guilty.

It also came down to the fact that Bob McDonnell, a Regent University Alumnus, is not a smart man. He was stupid to overspend and get hosed in the Real Estate market. He was stupid to take huge amounts of money and gifts from a shady millionaire obviously looking for some favors. He was stupid to let his wife piss off everyone who worked for them, especially the chef who then turned them in. He was stupid to go along with this ridiculous defense. He was stupid to get on the stand and think he could sweet talk the jury while throwing his wife under the bus.

His worst act of stupidity though-not taking the deal. I bet that will be the #1 regret he has while he rots away a few of his golden years in the slammer.

The Supreme Court will decide whether former Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell was rightly convicted of corruption for his efforts on behalf of a businessman who bestowed money and gifts on the governor and his family.

The Democrats already won the case by keeping McDonnell out of the 2016 Presidential campaign. Though if they knew then what they knew now they might not have gone through the effort.

The courts already decided that McDonnell broke no Virginia laws, and that prosecutors created new interpretations to Federal laws in order to prosecute him.

The question for the Supremes is whether this overreach is Constitutional. Look for a split decision based on political leanings.

I have a cousin who ran for congress out of Nashville a few years ago. He told me a little about the deals the Tennessee republican party leaders wanted him to make with them in order to get enough money to boost his campaign. He felt like he would be selling his soul and committing crimes so refused to do so. He wasn't happy then when he lost but now realizes that he wouldn't have changed anything because all the corruption runs so deep. Now he does a fairly successful radio show and believes he can have more impact in that.

You can't get elected without being a crook

Attorney generals usually refuse to go against their governors. So the feds step in.

No official acts were taken. None.

But he had to be taken out. He was a rising Republican star in an unfortunately purplish state (only due to carpetbaggers bringing their voting habits with them). The dems can't let a capable, grounded, hard working, good looking, Constitutionally-based Republican Governor just continue on his merry way.
