Missouri GOP suggests George Soros is behind Greitens indictment

The statement from the party stands in stark contrast to the comments from Republican legislative leaders who have promised to conduct a formal investigation in response to the indictment, which could be the first step toward impeachment.

That statement, University of Central Missouri political science professor Robynn Kuhlmann says, was a tactical move.

The indictment states that Greitens then photographed the woman "in a state of full or partial nudity" without her knowledge or consent. Greitens admitted having an affair but denies committing a crime. The donations occurred in her 2016 campaign.

"I look forward to the legal remedies to reverse this action". The second-highest ranking senator, Majority Leader Mike Kehoe, stopped short of urging resignation but questioned whether Greitens could still effectively lead the state. Louis TV station reported Greitens allegedly blackmailed his hairdresser after an affair in 2015.

A growing number of lawmakers from both parties are calling for Greitens to step down or be impeached.

Greitens was booked at the St. Louis Justice Center, officials confirmed in a statement to the Post-Dispatch. Greitens, a former boxer, martial arts expert, Rhodes Scholar and Navy SEAL Officer who was wounded in Iraq, promised to "bring out the big guns" in fighting his state's Democrats.

The Republican governor said he's innocent, but that hasn't stopped some Missouri lawmakers from discussing impeachment and calling for Greitens to resign. Thursday's indictment alleging that Greitens took a nude photo of the woman without her consent, however, just doesn't sit well.

The woman described how Greitens allegedly tied her to exercise equipment, blindfolded her, and pulled her trousers down before photographing her. He has not yet resigned his post but, according to WDBJ7, the number of lawmakers that are demanding for him to resign is growing. This follows Eric Greiten's indictment yesterday, in which he was accused of invading the privacy of a woman with whom he had an affair before being elected governor. Democrats said it was the kind of insider politics that Greitens decried in his campaign, and the chairman of the state party filed an ethics complaint contending he should have disclosed the list as an in-kind contribution.

State Reps. Kevin Corlew of Kansas City, Kevin Engler of Farmington and Becky Ruth of Festus all said on Friday that Greitens should resign.

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens has canceled plans to attend an annual meeting of the nation's governors following his indictment stemming from an extramarital affair. Republicans have already announced they are launching an investigation into the indictment charge.

The allegations first emerged from audio secretly recorded by the woman's ex-husband and shared anonymously with local CBS affiliate KMOV.

Greitens has repeatedly denied blackmailing the woman.

"These personal attacks, while disappointing, will not distract her from her duty to serve justice and the citizens of this community", Ryan said Friday.

He was released on a personal recognizance bond Thursday that permits him to travel freely throughout the U.S. But if the charges mean Greitens' "chances of re-election" are not as good, Wrenn has advice for the governor: "Make as many changes as you can, rattle as many cages as you can ... do what you think is right, remain determined".
