Statement of House Speaker William J. Howell on the trial of former Governor Bob McDonnell

Virginia House of Delegates Speaker William J. Howell issued the following statement Thursday on the trial of former Governor Bob McDonnell:

“This is a sad day for Virginia. I have known Bob McDonnell for a long time and consider him a very good friend of mine. He spent 38 years in public service and his record as Governor speaks for itself. I believe in the justice system and I am not going second guess the jury. The jury rendered its verdict and the McDonnells have an opportunity to appeal. That’s the way the system works. I am proud to call Bob McDonnell my friend and I pray for him and his family during this difficult time.”
