Missouri Governor Eric Greitens Mugshot

Missouri Governor and Tort Reform Advocate Eric Greitens Charged with Blackmailing Mistress Over Nude Photographs

They include Bruce Buwalda, the chair of the St. Louis County Republican Party. The investigation was opened after Greitens publicly admitted to the affair, reportedly beginning in early March 2015.

The woman's husband is alleged to have secretly recorded a conversation in which she claims Greitens took the compromising photo and threatened to publicize it if she spoke about the affair. The indictment said Greitens "transmitted the image contained in the photograph in a manner that allowed access to that image via a computer". On the tape, the woman said Greitens photographed her blindfolded and with her hands bound and said he would publicize the photo if she ever spoke about their relationship.

"As I have said before, I made a personal mistake before I was Governor", the statement reads.

Greitens, a married father of two young boys, has repeatedly denied blackmailing the woman.

Eric Greitens from his executive board position after Greiten's Thursday arrest on an invasion of privacy charge, The Hill reported. St. Louis Public Radio's Rachel Lippmann reports. He won an expensive primary, then defeated Democratic Attorney General Chris Koster in the general election.

Attorney General Josh Hawley (R) tweeted Friday morning that the indictment is a "serious matter" and there was no place for "party or partisanship".

Ryan says no new information or facts were being offered, so Gardner deemed the meeting unnecessary.

"As I have stated before, it is essential for residents of the City of St. Louis and our state to have confidence in their leader", Gardner said.

A House investigation could be the first step in that, but the statement didn't specifically mention impeachment.

Proceedings to impeach Missouri's embattled governor could begin as soon as Monday.

JILL SCHUPP: We need to see what happens, and then we need to be ready to move forward and act, should that become appropriate.

While it's true that Soros has been in the news in Missouri lately, it has nothing to do with the Greitens case. In the last week, a former St. Louis circuit judge was added to his legal team, and Dowd Bennett hired a statehouse lobbyist who is employed by longtime GOP consultant Jeff Roe's firm.

JEFFERSON CITY, MO- It's no secret that politics can get dirty and Missouri's Governor Eric Greitens' scandalous situation is a prime example.

Gardner's office shrugged off the governor's criticism Thursday night.

Trump on Kushner's Security Clearance: 'Kelly Will Make That Call'
But Trump said Friday that he would leave that decision to Kelly. "I have no doubt he will make the right decision", Trump said. He noted that Kushner does not receive a salary.

The circuit attorney is an elected official.

"No appellate case law exists approving criminal convictions where individuals involved were jointly participating in sexual activity", Dowd wrote in the motion, which was obtained by the Associated Press. The donations occurred in her 2016 campaign.

Separately, Greitens received a contribution of almost $2 million for his campaign from a super PAC with only a single, mystery group as a donor.

Her career path has some precedent: Democratic U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, did not issue any comment about Greitens on Friday.

But others who voted for Greitens can't abide the indictment.

"Kim Gardner has received more than $200,000 from George Soros groups", said Executive Director of the Missouri Republican Party Sam Cooper.
