Lawyer: Investigator in Greitens case a 'scapegoat'

William Tisaby, the investigator who conducted that interview alongside Gardner, later appeared to lie to the defense about key aspects of how it transpired.

Gardner dropped the invasion of privacy charges Monday.

Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner dropped the case Monday afternoon after Circuit Judge Rex Burlison ruled she could be called as a witness for the defense regarding William Don Tisaby's actions while leading the investigation.

Greitens' team moved several times to dismiss the case due to the lack of hard evidence.

Greitens still faces possible impeachment as Missouri lawmakers will meet in a special session Friday to determine his fate. "And at this time, I'd ask people of goodwill to come together so that we may continue to do good together".

Gardner told HuffPost in a statement that she is not surprised by the "continued theatrics" by Greitens' legal team.

"Above all, I am sorry for the pain that this process and my actions have caused my family, my friends, and the people of Missouri", Greitens continued.

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner abruptly dropped the felony invasion of privacy charge she had brought against the governor in February, saying she would seek to hand the case over to a special prosecutor, who could choose to file new charges.

Greitens had been accused of taking a picture of a woman he was having an affair with in a compromising position and threatening to share it if she spoke about the affair.

A Gardner spokeswoman says a decision will be made later on how to proceed. "The court's order leaves the circuit attorney no adequate means of proceeding with this trial".

Sullivan cited the fact that Greitens' defense attorneys planned to call the St. Louis circuit attorney, whose handling of the case has been under constant criticism by Greitens attorneys. Greitens' lawyers claim the St. Louis prosecutor's office allowed Tisaby to commit perjury and withhold evidence from defense attorneys. The affair happened in March 2015, before Greitens was elected governor. If the House votes to impeach Greitens, the Senate then would appoint a judicial panel to preside over a trial on whether he should be removed from office. Jurors aren't required to know nothing about the allegations against Greitens.

Williams Leads Pirates Past White Sox
Meanwhile, the over is 7-0 in the Pirates' last seven Wednesday games and 4-1-1 in their last six in game two of a series. He left his previous start on May 11 after just three innings with a laceration on the middle finger of his right hand.

Texas airport workers used flights to distribute meth to NC
Cox said this has been an ongoing investigation since 2016 and said all of the defendants were not involved with any drug gangs. Each of the defendants faces one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a scheduled II controlled substance.

Greitens has denied the charges, saying he had a consensual extramarital affair with the woman.

The governor has said he is sorry for the affair and that he will not resign.

An attorney for Gov. Eric Greitens' campaign has turned over more than 14,000 documents to a House investigatory committee but is objecting to a subpoena issued to a separate secretive group that has supported Greitens' agenda. They dropped the charge Monday.

A hearing is scheduled for next week in a second felony case against Mr. Greitens.

In defending the hiring of Tisaby in March, Gardner's office claimed it sought help from police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Attorney's Office, but received no cooperation, the Post-Dispatch reported.

Greitens faces another criminal charge regarding a count of tampering with computer data: modifying or destroying, disclosing or accessing for an incident that took place on around about April 22, 2015, in relation to The Mission Continues - the charity he started.

An attorney for Tisaby said he is being labeled a "scapegoat". "Only two of them were related to the invasion of privacy". Nor was there any evidence that the woman's photo had been deleted, the motion says. Prosecutors have acknowledged that they did not have the photo but left open the possibility that they would obtain it.

Greitens' attorney Edward Dowd said, "Our defense team has over 100 years of experience combined, and we have never seen such outrageous misconduct".

"They better look very hard on that vote", said Sen.

Ronald Sullivan, the prosecution's special prosecutor did not dispute the claim when asked for a response by Burlison.
