Prosecutors Reportedly Delay Deciding Whether To Charge Va. Gov McDonnell

Federal prosecutors investigating Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell in connection with a gift scandal have reportedly delayed asking a grand jury to charge the Republican and his wife after a face-to-face appeal to the Justice Department from attorneys for the couple.

The Washington Post reported late Wednesday that Dana J. Boente, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, had informed the McDonnells' legal team that he planned to ask for an indictment no later than this past Monday. However, after meeting with Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole on December 12, the lawyers were told that the decision to press charges would be put on hold. The Post also reported that a decision whether to press charges is not expected before January 2.

The Democrats are nothing but scumbags for going after this guy. It is obviously politically motivated.

Democrats may be scumbags, but so are republicans. It is a shame that they will push hard for this... but ignore the corruption from Feinstein, Reid, Pelosi, Frank, Obama, Hillary, etc. They can't pick their battles.
