Missouri attorney general Greitens could face new charge

He is accused of taking and transmitting a nonconsensual photo of a partially nude woman with whom he had an affair in 2015, before he was elected.

Those resignation calls increased after Republican Attorney General Josh Hawley said Tuesday that an investigation by his office determined that Greitens may have 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.

Judge Rex Burlison said in court that St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner had committed "sanctionable" rules violations by failing to turn over some required evidence. Greitens has admitted to the affair but denied criminal wrongdoing.

A felony invasion-of-privacy case against Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens will go on despite his attorneys' attempt to have it thrown out, a St. Louis judge ruled Thursday.

As the Houston Oilers, the franchise played preseason games in Tokyo (Tokyo Dome, 1992) and Mexico City (Stadium Azteca, 1994). This season's Mexico City game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams will take place on November 19 at 8:15 p.m.

The Associated Press first reported in October 2016 that Greitens' campaign obtained a list of top donors to The Mission Continues, based in St. Louis, and raised almost $2 million from donors who were on it.

The Republican governor's legal team last week accused St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, a Democrat, of prosecutorial misconduct, saying she tried to hide video evidence supporting the governor and his assertions that the affair was entirely consensual.

"I think they still believe they need additional time to finish that work which is why we have begun the process of calling ourselves into a special session", said Richardson. Hawley turned over his findings to the House investigatory committee, which is to recommend in the coming weeks whether to pursue impeachment proceedings to try to remove Greitens from office.

Greitens has called the case against him a "witch hunt".

While the changes weren't that surprising, Oladipo leaving after 62 seconds was stunning. "I think the intensity", said LeBron . The 33-year-old James also helped put the game away with two clutch free throws with 18 seconds left to make it 99-92.

But the next question is, whether or not the Governor will face a new felony charge. Cohen replied by tweeting again "no matter how many times or ways they write it, I have never been to Prague". Greitens and Hawley both won election in 2016 as maverick political outsiders. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat. "Anyone who has set foot in a Missouri courtroom knows these allegations are ridiculous". He added: "We will dispense with these false allegations". That investigator, William Don Tisaby, has become a central issue in recent filings, as defense lawyers say he lied in his deposition and may have concealed evidence that they say is favorable to Greitens.

Hawley indicated that the legal deadline is fast approaching to charge Greitens with a crime of tampering with computer data. Greitens' lawyers looked more grim.
