The trial for suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev continued Monday as defense attorneys grilled FBI Special Agent Kevin Swindon about his knowledge of computers and the evidence.

MassLive.com reports that attorney William Fick appeared to grow agitated as Swindon struggled to answer some of his questions.

Swindon was unable to answer some of the questions directly, frustrating Fick.

The testimony sheds some light on the defense’s strategy, which appears to be discrediting the evidence.

The evidence was collected from three computers.

The trial continues today.

Support has also come from the state’s congressional delegation.

Maryland is locked in a tight competition for the headquarters with Springfield in Fairfax County.

The headquarters will bring an estimated 11,000 FBI jobs.

U.S. Attorney James Santelle is under investigation on accusations that he misused the government-assigned credit card and violated a law barring federal employees from some political activities, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The Department of Justice is leading the investigation, which started more than a  year ago following a routine audit.

Investigators are trying to determine whether the credit card was used for non-official use, like food.

Santelle, who works in Milwaukee, declined to comment.

“I am not in a position to comment other than those matters are both with the Department of Justice,” he said Monday.
