Bob and Maureen McDonnell’s defense attorneys rested their cases late Wednesday afternoon.  The prosecution brought in rebuttal testimony Thursday after which the evidence phase of the trial ended. Closing arguments are Friday. One of the last witnesses for the defense was the former first couple’s daughter, Jeanine, who said that for decades, her parents rarely spoke to each other in private. As for displays of affection, Jeanine McDonnell Zubowsky said they could “flip a switch” in public. Jeanine spoke of one moment in which her father cried and told her that he and her mother had reached “a new low.” Prosecutors say that Bob and Maureen McDonnel worked together to earn $160,000 dollars in gifts and loans from Jonnie Williams in exchange for promoting his dietary supplements. Part of the McDonnells’ defense is that they could not have engaged in a criminal conspiracy because they barely spoke.
