Prosecutor pokes holes in McDonnell's explanations

From WAPO's liveblog

But, as Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Dry pointed out, McDonnell also omitted another loan on that same personal financial statement. This one was from Paul Davis and was also made out to MoBo. However in this instance, McDonnell did sign a document that made him personally liable for the loan.

Dry was pointing to an inconsistency: If McDonnell actually reasoned out at the time that he didnít have to disclose Williamsís loan because he held no personal liability for it, wouldnít he have come to the same conclusion about the Davis loan?

Isnít it true, Dry insisted, that the reason why there is no requirement to disclose Williamsí loan is because there was no personal guarantee. Is that ďan after-the-fact legal justification that youíve come up with here?Ē
