Appearing with his wife, daughter, and son-in-law to address the media hours after the indictment, McDonnell, who is the first Virginia governor to face criminal charges and will be arraigned in Richmond Friday, said he was "falsely accused," that his public service has been "wrongly attacked," and that he would use all resources available to him to fight what he said was an "unjust" federal overreach. According to the Justice Department, if convicted on all the counts, both McDonnells would face maximum prison sentences of 80 years and fines of over $1.25 million.
McDonnell said he "deeply regrets" taking gifts from Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams and noted that he "returned and repaid with interest" the lavish gifts and loans, apologized for his poor judgment, and said that he has accepted "full responsibility."
McDonnell then said the United States Supreme Court has already rejected this radical idea that "facilitating an introduction or a meeting, appearing at a reception, or expressing support for a Virginia business is a federal crime if it involves a political donor or someone who gave an official a gift."
Just keep on talking Bob -- maybe you can drag Barry & the DemoSleaze down with you.
Now everyone please note that McDonnell was not a Conservative.
Guess what? He is the typical RINO puppet governor... only in office for himself and allowing himself to be used as a puppet mouthpiece by Corporate Globalists who operate in both parties... the Marxist Globalists in the Jackass-controlled Party and the Fascist Globalists in the RINO-controlled Dumb Elephant Party.
WE DON'T NEED YOU TO TELL US THAT THE BIG" 0"/ZERO, IS A GANGSTER, WE ACTUALLY KNEW IT ALREADY,....................BUT THANKS ANYWAY.
More evidence that both political parties are on the take! They are all pathetic! It should be an honor to represent the American people, BUT instead it's an excuse to "line your pockets"! Government officials should never be allowed to accept any gifts, money, favors of any kind - NEVER EVER!
I have said this all along...They are getting rich,TO NOT DOING THEIR JOB...The AMERICAN people are paying dearly to loose their freedom
Can you say TERM LIMITS???
house for O, then a lot for O, then bought a lot of book from O and made O rich . . gave the books away or put them in a warehouse but had to get over that million number. QUID PRO QUO is rampant and will be until the AG office starts going after the donors [briber barons]
The AG and his thugs will not go after the donors of these "gifts", as the AG and those in both political parties know which side of the bread slice gets the butter!
I am reading a book on Nancy Pelosi, and, believe me, she makes the "Godfather" look like a choirboy! She learned every corrupt, bullying tactic she employs in the House of Representatives at her parents' knees. In this book, she says that "she wants to be feared-not loved". She is running Congress with the same ruthlessness as Al Capone did in Chicago during the Prohibition Era.
If there are any more corrupt people in government than Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Hussein Obama, I don't want to meet them!
Bad example. We know Obama is guilty.
Well, Mr Obama is an accessory to the insidious sabotage plan to destroy our country from within;...this man (Barack Obama is an employee of a local group of globalists with this plan and they hired him in order to be the front-face / propagandist / poster boy, if you will to / for the obvious end.
They are the real commanders-in-chief,...Obama is just and only the image / token-figure , a fundamental factor in / for their agenda.
We can call this group....'THE PRESEIDENTIALCONSORTIOUM' ;....and they are...Soros,...Kerry,...Clinton,...Jarrett,...Schumer,...Van Jones,...Stern,...Buffett,...Axelrod,...Maddoff,....O'Neal,..just to mention few;....and although some of them seems to be out of sight, they are working ferociously against this country - in so many ways, at different levels ,hidden / under the radar scope.
Are we all clear on this?....Yes?....or....no? Opinions welcome.
I agree, Daniel. Everyone needs to check out the video "The Obama Deception". I found it on you tube. It's about 2 hours long and is about the best analogy of what's going on behind the scenes or.......should I say........right in front of our face! I think it can also be found on infowars.com and prisonplanet.com
