FBI looking into relationship between Gov. McDonnell, his wife and a nutritional supplements company

Investigation probe in VA's governor

RICHMOND, Va. -  

Two people with knowledge of the situation say the FBI has begun looking at the relationship between Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen and the chief executive of a nutritional supplements manufacturer that is the subject of an investigation.
 
Federal authorities began questioning people close to the McDonnells as an outgrowth of a securities probe of Virginia-based Star Scientific Inc., said the two people, who spoke Monday on the condition of anonymity because their roles in the case preclude them from speaking publicly.
 
They said FBI agents have asked questions about gifts the McDonnells have received from company CEO Jonnie Williams and whether the Republican governor or his administration aided the company in return.
