Questions about finances continue in the trial of former Governor Bob McDonnell. The prosecution is now grilling McDonnell’s broker about his wife’s stock in Star Scientific. McDonnell testified that early on he had no knowledge of Maureen McDonnell’s stock in Jonnie Williams’ company. Broker John Piscatelli then noted that McDonnell wanted a segregated account to take in Williams’ stock for a loan, but McDonnell said he did not remember that. When asked why he would ask for segregated account if he didn’t even know his wife still had an active account, McDonnell had no answer. The prosecution is out to prove that the McDonnells worked together to take advantage of Williams, which the McDonnell teams said was impossible because the two barely spoke.
