Richmond, VA ( – As the Giftgate trial for former Governor Bob McDonnell (R) and his wife, Maureen, approaches, the former Governor's defense team has asked for a subpoena of an "unnamed out-of-state official."  The official's name is sealed to avoid interruptions in their current business.


If called to testify, the official is expected to testify about conversations he or she had with McDonnell.  McDonnell, of course, ran into several different out-of-state officials as Governor.


The trial is scheduled to start Monday.  It could take weeks to conclude.
