Judge Allows Criminal Case Against Missouri Governor to Proceed
Judge Allows Criminal Case Against Missouri Governor to Proceed
22 April, 2018, 06:06
Defense attorney Scott Rosenblum said in court Thursday that he suspects Don Tisaby, the private investigator hired by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, will stop talking about the Eric Greitens case. Greitens has admitted to what he says was a consensual affair and has denied criminal wrongdoing.
Defense lawyers also accused a former Federal Bureau of Investigation officer Gardner hired as a private investigator of lying to the court under oath. That's a possibility since the defense wants Tisaby to answer to what they've called "criminal" behavior, such as withholding evidence and alleged lies made while under oath.
Thursday, a St. Louis, Missouri, judge rejected the motion to dismiss the felony charge. Both are expected next week, said Susan Ryan, a spokeswoman for the circuit attorney's office.
The House panel released a report last week containing testimony from a woman who says Greitens was physically aggressive during an unwanted sexual encounter in 2015.
Circuit Judge Rex Burlison has said he will announce his ruling in a court session Thursday.
On Monday, attorney Jim Martin said 11 pages of Tisaby's notes from a deposition of a friend of the woman, requested weeks ago, were not turned over until Sunday, after Martin threatened to go to court to ask for them.
His attorneys said investigators withheld evidence by not delivering additional notes and video taken during the woman's interview. In another instance, Tisaby claimed he checked his laptop for notes during a deposition lunch break, but later said the laptop wasn't even in St. Louis, defense attorneys said.
Greitens quickly replied that he won't quit and hopes to be vindicated at an upcoming criminal trial. After thoughtful consideration of the findings in the House committee's report and today's news that the attorney general has evidence to support another felony charge, we believe the governor needs to take responsibility for his actions.
"In multiple motions filed over the last several days, Greitens' legal team accused Gardner of failing to turn over evidence in a timely fashion - first, a videotape and notes from an interview done with the woman at the center of the case, and then notes from an interview with a confidant of the woman's".
Meanwhile, Attorney General Josh Hawley, also a Republican, said Tuesday that an investigation by his office determined that Greitens committed another crime by using a donor list from the veterans' charity he founded, The Mission Continues, to raise money for his gubernatorial campaign without the charity's permission. St. Louis University Political Science Professor Dr. Ken Warren points to the Missouri constitution that states any elected official is "liable to impeachment for crimes, misconduct, habitual drunkeness, willful neglect of duty, corruption in office, incompetency, or any offense involving moral turpitude or oppression in office".
But the next question is, whether or not the Governor will face a new felony charge.
