Greitens camp not fully cooperating with House investigative committee, Barnes says

Eric Greitens denied that he blackmailed the woman he admitted to having an affair with

Police say the decision to investigate was made after meeting with two of Greitens' attorneys, who announced earlier Tuesday they would ask for an investigation. And if that weren't enough, the Circuit Attorney and William Tisaby also met a number of times in secret with a major witness in the case.

The trial was going through a long, drawn out process of jury selection and was supposed to start Wednesday after it was originally scheduled to begin Monday.

Gardner said in a statement that there is not "one shred of evidence" that Tisaby acted illegally or that his actions materially impacted evidence.

In a statement from Gardner's office, Gardners said she was not anxious about the accusations and said the governor's legal team "threatened my staff and me with the continued barrage of insults and accusations if we continued to pursue charges against the Governor".

On Twitter, Greitens said Gardner's decision to drop charges was a "great victory".

This is not the first time the defense has accused Gardener and Tisaby of misconduct.

The criminal case against Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens for felony invasion of privacy charges was dismissed by prosecutors.

"Today, we will be filing a police report with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department regarding the perjury committed by the lead investigator for the Circuit Attorney's Office in the case against Governor Greitens".

Prosecutors said they dropped the charge after state Circuit Court Judge Rex Burlison granted Greitens' request to call Gardner as a witness.

Greitens' attorneys have criticized Gardner's handling of the case, particularly her hiring of private investigator William Tisaby, who Greitens' lawyers have accused of perjury.

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.

Last month, Gardner's chief trial assistant, Robert Dierker, told the judge that Gardner's office would initiate an investigation of the perjury allegations, according to a transcript of an April 19 discussion in Burlison's chambers. The governor is on trial in St. Louis this week on charges of invasion of privacy over allegedly taking a semi-nude photo of a woman with whom he had an affair, without her permission. They dropped the charge Monday. He has faced pressure to resign over scandals from numerous state lawmakers and other state officials, including the state's attorney general, Josh Hawley, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate. The legislature is moving full steam ahead with a special session to debate Greitens' possible impeachment, which begins Friday evening.
