Prosecutor's chief investigator may stop talking about Greitens case

Defense attorney Jim Bennett leaves the Carnahan Courthouse after a judge ruled he will not dismiss the case against Gov. Eric Greitens

Defense attorney Jim Bennett leaves the Carnahan Courthouse after a judge ruled he will not dismiss the case against Gov. Eric Greitens

But instead of throwing out the case, he is allowing Greiten's lawyers to take more depositions of key witnesses. The governor's jury trial remains set for May 14.

"If further conduct is brought to this court's attention, this motion will be reconsidered", Burlison said.

On Monday, Greitens' attorney Jim Martin said 11 pages of private investigator William 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. Rosenblum said Tisaby indicated he's been paid way over his $10,000 retainer fee.

Greitens' lawyers had requested the case be dismissed, claiming the prosecutor withheld key evidence from the defense.

Lawyers on both sides declined to comment after the hearing. Gardner also argued that the defense's bid for dismissal and its accusations of misconduct against her were unwarranted "diversionary tactics" with no bearing on the case.

That pressure grew more intense on Tuesday after Missouri's attorney general said his office uncovered evidence of electronic theft by Greitens in an unrelated investigation - an allegation the governor dismissed as "ridiculous". Greitens said the relationship was "entirely consensual".

She said prosecutors intend to carry on despite the sanctions.

Cohen is also wrapped up in a suit brought by adult film star Stormy Daniels, and pursuing the libel case "could have [made it] hard for Cohen to convince that judge to put Daniels' case on hold while Cohen continued to press civil suits in other federal courts", Politico writes.

The statute of limitations of three years, which would have expired in March, was on hold while the case was pending, said Sue McGraugh, a St. Louis University law professor and the supervisor of the criminal defense clinic, in an interview Wednesday.

A woman he admitted he had an affair with is accusing him of blackmailing her with a nude photo and physically abusing her.

Also Monday, the judge issued an order requiring the woman to provide the defense with "any phone now in her possession on which she received or has at any time been able to view the text messages from (her ex-husband) as referenced in (the woman's) interview conducted by William Don Tisaby in January 2018".

"We believe that the evidence we have will support a finding of probable cause that the governor obtained the list, used the list (and) transmitted the list without the permission of The Mission Continues and he did so for political fundraising purposes", Hawley said at a news conference.

"After the release of a report from the House Special Investigative Committee on Oversight and new information that Attorney General Josh Hawley has evidence to support another felony charge of an unrelated matter", Andrews said, "I am joining with the members of the House leadership team in calling for the governor to step down".
