5:06 pm
signal today that bob mcdonnell may be very well way on his way to having his corruption conviction overturned. you remember back in 2014 he was found guilty in a federal trial in richmond. but today these justices express serious concern that the federal prosecutors may have even exceeded their power in charging mcdonnell with a crime in the first place. think back to that trial back in 2014, both bob and his wife maureen were convicked of taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in luckstory gifts in exchange, prosecutors said, that mcdonnell let the governor's office to be used to promote his nutritional supplement company. the justices here today, they with
5:07 pm
they suggested that prosecutors corruption charges were too broad. several questions letting a meeting occur or hosting a party actually constituted an official act by a governor. in particular the justice was very vocal on this today. he said if mcdonnell's conviction stood, almost everything a politician did or said could be labeled corruption. he added we are worried that prosecutors can be too over zealous and we need protection from that. all this was all over today, both the former governor and the attorney who will argue this case spoke to the media. >> the last 39 months i've never done anything that would the powers of my office. thank you for coming today. >> we fought this case on the beginning this was a charge that was just a bridge too far. we think our arguments came out well before the court today and we look forward to

decision. >> we should tell you that the federal prosecutor in the eastern district who brought these charges declined to speak after the hearing today. keep in mind, the former governor is facing two years in federal prison. he's been allowed to stay out while he's continued these appeals. if the court decides to overturn convictions, it will be up to the federal government to decide whether or not to try t case. we're expected to get a decision before this term ends at the end of june. tom fitzgerald, fox 5 local news. >> today a
