Gardner dismisses felony case against Greitens

15 May 2018

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner's office said it dismissed the charge Monday because Judge Rex Burlison granted a request by Greitens' attorney to call the prosecutor as a witness.

22nd Circuit Judge Rex Burlison made an unpreceded decision by granting a request by Governor Greitens' defense team to endorse the Circuit Attorney as a witness for the defense.

Prosecutors said they will make a decision later on whether to seek a special prosecutor or appoint someone to continue pursuing the case. "He ought to ask the campaign for its version of events before acting as judge and jury in a matter that was settled long ago", she said at the time.

Vaccaro said her handling of the Greitens case may be a factor when aldermen begin budget negotiations soon.

'I have emerged from it a changed man'. The trial itself was expected to begin Wednesday.

Despite an earlier pledge to provide information to a special House committee investigating Gov. Eric Greitens, an attorney representing his campaign operation has not fully complied with subpoenas issued by the Missouri House, the chairman of the panel said Monday.

Greitens is charged with felony invasion of privacy for allegedly taking and transmitting a photo of a woman in a compromising position without her permission in March 2015.The Republican governor has denied any criminal wrongdoing but has acknowledged having an extramarital affair with the woman. While facing mounting pressure to resign, Greitens has vowed to remain in office while fighting to clear his name.

On Friday, Missori legislators are scheduled to start a particular session throughout which the state Home of Representatives is anticipated to vote on impeaching Greitens.

Greitens also faces a second felony computer tampering charge in the same court relating to claims he took a donors list without permission from a charity he founded and used it to solicit donations for his gubernatorial campaign.

Governor Eric Greitens announced the effort during a visit to a job fair at Fort Leonard Wood aimed at hiring more veterans to the Missouri State Parks system.

The prosecutor continued, "While the court has other remedies ... it has chosen not to [use them.] When the court and the defense team put the state in the impossible position of choosing between her professional obligations and the pursuit of justice, the Circuit Attorney will always choose the pursuit of justice".

Senate Majority Floor Leader Mike Kehoe (R) and Senate Pro Tem Ron Richard (R) released a statement Monday night, saying Greitens has "lost the moral authority" to lead.

The governor spoke outside the courthouse Monday afternoon and released a statement on his Facebook page.

Without a photo the charge could be hard to prove, and Anders Walker, a law professor at St. Louis University, told the New York Times that he doubts prosecutors would bring a similar charge. Rosenblum, however, predicted that the House, upon seeing the evidence amassed in the criminal case, would conclude that Greitens committed no crime. The allegations led to a special investigation by the Missouri legislature, which found the woman's testimony to be "disturbing".

"The House's investigation and the Circuit Attorney's case are two separate paths", said Sens.

Lieb reported from Jefferson City. Among other things, they accused Tisaby, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, of lying when he said he did not take notes when he and Gardner on January 29 interviewed the woman involved in the affair.

"We now hope the governor and his staff are more forthcoming with the facts, and they decide to appear before the special investigative committee".
