Former Gov. Eric Greitens and Kim Gardner
In February former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens was exonerated of ANY WRONGDOING by the Missouri Ethics Commission.
More than two years ago, KMOV back alley reporter, Lauren Trager, broke the story that then popular Republican Governor Eric Greitens had had an extramarital affair with his hairdresser, Katrina Sneed.
Trager’s reporting included an allegation that Greitens took a non-consensual nude or partially nude photo of K. Sneed to “blackmail” her into silence over their affair. The allegation of a non-consensual photo ultimately led the far left St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner to indict Greitens on a charge of felony invasion of privacy days later.
The Gateway Pundit later reported that Gardner and her chief investigator withheld information in their case against Greitens. Kim Gardner chose not to have the St. Louis Police Department investigate the allegations against the Governor and instead hired William Tisaby, CEO of Enterra, LLC and a former FBI agent. Gardner also met with Tisaby and Soros operatives before announcing the charges. And Gardner even flew to Louisiana to meet with Tisaby to plot their conspiracy against Governor Greitens.
Governor Greitens was then pressured by corrupted Missouri Republicans and later resigned as governor.
The charges by Gardner were dismissed several months later over prosecutorial misconduct, including potential criminal conduct. The alleged photo was never found. No witness, including the alleged victim K. Sneed, had personal knowledge the alleged photo ever even existed.
Governor Greitens resigned in May 2019. The popular governor was facing possible impeachment from the Republican-led House.
In February the Missouri Ethics Commission announced that Former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens was fully exonerated.
@MOethics concludes “no evidence” of wrongdoing by @ericgreitens. No “reasonable grounds” for much of @jaybarnes5 complaint. MEC green lights Greitens to pursue lawsuit, if he decides. @mogop #justiceforericgreitens

The Missouri Ethics Commission found no evidence of wrongdoing.
Governor Greitens was the victim of a setup and possible criminal conduct by the St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner.
The Greitens story is now starting to make national news.
On Wednesday night John Solomon’s Just the News published an extensive report on the the case that took out popular Governor Eric Greitens.
Kimberly Gardner made history in 2016, roaring to an election victory as St. Louis city’s first African-American chief prosecutor on a campaign funded heavily by the liberal mega-donor George Soros. Four years later, she finds herself under investigation and her chief investigator already indicted for a prosecution gone bad, one that forced Missouri’s Republican governor to resign in what some now believe may have been a political attack.
Gardner, a Democrat and the city’s circuit attorney, was forced in 2018 to withdraw her indictment accusing Gov. Eric Greitens of felony invasion of privacy for allegedly taking a picture of his scantily clad girlfriend and threatening to release it if she talked about their affair. Gardner’s office dropped the charge after admitting she did not have proof of the photo or its transmission.
Investigators now allege the Greitens prosecution, which forced the governor to resign less than two years into his tenure, was built on lies that included perjury and hiding exculpatory evidence that would have helped demonstrate Greitens’ innocence, court documents show.
Most significantly, testimony transcripts and court records obtained by Just the News show the woman Gardner built her case around, beautician Katrina Sneed, testified she was asked unsolicited by Gardner’s office to come forward as a witness and that she was actually reluctant to accuse Greitens because the entire story of a photo on his mobile phone may have been a dream.
“And at any point where you were in the basement with E.G. (Eric Greitens) at his home, did you see what you believed to be a phone?” Sneed was asked during an April 6, 2018 pretrial deposition with defense lawyers.
Sneed answered: “So not that’s like a very vivid memory which is the reason why I haven’t talked about it because I don’t know if it’s because I’m remembering it through a dream or I — I’m not sure, but yes, I feel like I saw it after that happened, but I haven’t spoken about it because of that.”
The magnitude of alleged holes and potential misconduct in the case that Gardner brought against Greitens have been laid bare in subsequent court filings, which include a seven-count felony indictment against Gardner’s chief investigator in the case, William Tisaby.
The new evidence has not only engulfed her office in controversy; it has also drawn comparisons in Washington to the Russia collusion allegations against President Trump that were leaked and investigated, only to be debunked after a nearly three-year drama.
