Felony Case Against Missouri Gov. Greitens Will Continue

Missouri attorney general Greitens could face new charge

Greitens is facing felony invasion-of-privacy charges after he allegedly photographed a nude or partially nude woman he was having an affair with without her knowledge or consent. He said he'll consider any monetary sanctions after the case is over.

According to the Associated Press, attorneys for Greitens say a private investigator hired by the prosecutor has repeatedly lied to the court. The judge agreed that the prosecution acted badly, but imposed lesser sanctions rather than throwing out the entire case.

Greitens' trial is scheduled for May 14. The allegations that arose since then have led to the possibility that Missouri's governor could face an impeachment effort from the legislature his own party controls.

Greitens lawyers have denied any criminal wrongdoing. And he's made it clear for months that he's not going to resign.

Facebook CEO stops short of extending European privacy globally
Facebook released a revised terms of service in draft form two weeks ago, and they are scheduled to take effect next month. Next month Facebook will start planning changes so that only European users are protected the GDPR, Reuters said.

The felony charge of invasion of privacy centers on the existence of the photo, not any blackmail threat.

Prosecutors do not have the photo in their possession.

"If the investigator in the deposition refuses to testify by asserting his Fifth Amendment privilege, the defense team will bring that witness into court and make him restate that he's pleading the fifth on the information in order to cast him in a bad light", Young said.

Defense lawyers also accused a former Federal Bureau of Investigation officer Gardner hired as a private investigator of lying to the court under oath. Prosecutors have an obligation to turn over certain documents and material that might be favorable to defendants, but Burlison said Gardner's office had committed "sanctionable" violations of those rules and obligations.

The magazine that published the recorded remarks said Fukuda routinely made similar comments to female journalists. Thus, the reporter contacted the Shukan Shincho about her experiences and agreed to be interviewed.

The judge will allow the alleged victim to be deposed again. A growing number of lawmakers, including all of the top Republicans, have called on Greitens to resign. His office says it has found evidence suggesting Greitens used a donor list from his charity, "The Mission Continues", for political fund raising during his 2016 gubernatorial campaign. After thoughtful consideration of the findings in the House committee's report and today's news that the attorney general has evidence to support another felony charge, we believe the governor needs to take responsibility for his actions. They also allege that Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner knew he lied, and that her office has withheld evidence from the defense.

As Jason Rosenbaum reports from St. Louis, "Hawley is running for the Senate against Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill".

Minority Floor Leader Gail McCann Beatty, who has previously been reserved and has called for patience on the matter, said "I think that I have seen enough".
