‘I feel vindicated’: Former Va. Gov. McDonnell speaks to ’60 Minutes’

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court unanimously overturned former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s 2014 corruption conviction in June 2016. This year, McDonnell discusses the case that cost the former Republican politician his reputation and $27 million in legal fees in a “60 Minutes” interview Sunday.

“At this point, I feel vindicated,” McDonnell told “60 Minutes.”

But when asked if the issue fit the churchgoer’s moral code, McDonnell replied, “If I’d do it over again, I was governor, I wouldn’t take any gifts. I didn’t need them.”
