Five onetime attorneys general are urging a federal judge to dismiss corruption charges against former Governor Bob McDonnell. The bipartisan list includes Democrats Andy Miller, Mary Sue Terry and Steve Rosenthal, along with Republicans Marshall Coleman and Mark Earley. These five lawyers filed a memo supporting McDonnell’s legal team Wednesday at the Richmond federal court. Federal prosecutors announced the charges against McDonnell in late January. A judge has set a July 28th trial date for the former Governor (pictured right) and his wife Maureen (pictured left).
