RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell's attorneys are seeking documents from two federal agencies that they hope to use to attack the credibility of the government's expected star witness in his public corruption case.

McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, are charged with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from the head of a dietary supplements company in exchange for promoting his products.

Defense attorneys filed papers late Thursday asking a judge to issue subpoenas for Food and Drug Administration and Securities and Exchange Commission files on Star Scientific Inc. and its former CEO, Jonnie Williams. Both agencies have investigated the company.

The judge on Friday rejected two other McDonnell motions demanding immediate disclosure of certain evidence.
