Though the corruption trial of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, isn't set to start until July, their lawyers have already signaled a key part of their strategy.

Pop some popcorn and buckle your seatbelts, because the Virginia Republican establishment is about to tear itself apart, and we have front row seats.
