RICHMOND, Va. (WHSV) — Former Virginia governor Bob McDonnell began the day being questioned by his wife's attorney.

The attorney renewed the motion to separate their trials; however, judge still denied it

McDonnell's rehashed his testimony, specifically regarding marriage woes on Monday morning.

He seemed more subdued than he had been at end of last week. At one point, the judge had to ask him to speak up.

Texts and e-mails between the former governor and Jonnie Williams were presented as evidence as Maureen's attorney tried to establish relationship and friendship between the two, independent of her relationship with Williams.

The attorney also tried to clear his client by presenting some of the gifts and loans that Maureen accepted or was presented with as "optics problems," not legal ones.

In the afternoon, the prosecution will begin cross-examining McDonnell. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
