BONUS SEASON ONE EPISODE: How many times over the past year have you heard the words quid pro quo? The entire impeachment trial of President Trump centered around the meaning of these words. But it didn't start with Trump. Back in 2014, Governor Bob McDonnell and his wife were charged with fraud for accepting gifts. Attorney Hank Asbill told the feds that they had no case because the Governor did not perform an "official act" in exchange for the gifts -- there may have been a quid but there was no quo. In this episode, Hank will explain the long-game defense strategy, which ultimately led to victory.
