Oh he isn't going to step down, no matter what. He will have to be forced out. He was a Navy Seal also.

The Governor in MO is now dealing with a grand jury investigation.

He had an affair with his hair dresser. Invited her to his home, taped her hands to exersize rings, blind folded her, then took photos of her naked to use for blackmail and also supposedly slapped her.

Missouri’s Republican governor is the latest politician to star in his own drama: Fifty Shades of Greitens – a tawdry tale of lust, power and betrayal that has consumed state politics and led to bipartisan calls for his resignation.

Only minutes after delivering his State of the State address earlier this month, Gov. Eric Greitens was hit with an exposé about an extramarital affair he had in 2015.

The salacious report aired on St. Louis’ KMOV-TV and included an audio recording of a conversation between a woman and her then-husband – recorded secretly by the husband – in which she admits to having an affair with Greitens.

While the governor is now rejecting calls to resign, the details of that call continue to leak across the pages of Missouri newspapers, keeping the scandal front-and-center for the state's most powerful official.

Holy crap.

At least there's bipartisan support for him to step down - that's something.

Can't say I'm shocked. Some people should NOT be trained to kill. Think there's enough blowback to get him out?

I read this morning where Hope Hicks and Porter are no longer in a relationship.

Maybe he smacked her around too. The guy is a scumbag. And whoever let him work in the WH without a security clearance should be fired.

Turns out Kushner doesn't have permanent clearance either. What a fucking travesty of an administration.

The Washington Times - Saturday, February 10, 2018

The delay in obtaining a permanent security clearance specifically for Mr. Kushner has become so bothersome that White House Counsel Donald McGahn and other administration officials have been hesitant to request investigations into other potentially problematic individuals, The Post reported, citing several unnamed sources.

FBI contradicts White House on background check timeline of former aide Rob Porter

Deb Riechmann and Zeke MillerAssociated Press

Contradicting the White House, the FBI said Tuesday it gave the Trump administration information on multiple occasions last year about a top aide accused of domestic abuse by his two ex-wives, and the investigation wrapped up in January.

That account by FBI Director Christopher Wray challenged the White House assertion that Rob Porter's background "investigation was ongoing" and officials first learned the extent of accusations against him only last week, just before he abruptly resigned.

Wray's testimony marked the latest development in a scandal that has called into question the judgment of senior members of the White House staff, put new stress on the administration's already strained credibility with the public, and drawn accusations of tone-deaf handling of abuse allegations.

The weeklong fallout from the allegations against Porter, President Donald Trump's staff secretary, has thrown the West Wing into chaos not seen since the earliest months of the administration and has sparked new rounds of recriminations inside the White House...

An investigation was opened on this last night.


..."We have a broken system and I think everybody's come to agree with that now," Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, told The Associated Press. He called for limits on the information made accessible to those with temporary clearances — a practice that is currently not followed in the West Wing, an official said.

Meanwhile, Colbie Holderness, Porter's first wife, pushed back against comments made by presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway that seemed to suggest strong women can't be victims of domestic violence.

Conway, in a weekend interview on CNN, said she had no reason to disbelieve accounts by Holderness and another ex-wife that Porter had abused them. But when asked if she was concerned for top White House aide Hope Hicks, who reportedly was dating Porter, Conway said no because "I've rarely met somebody so strong with such excellent instincts and loyalty and smarts."

%&$# YOU, KELLYANNE

I have to assume that the security clearance process for Jared Kushner and others who are still on temp clearances began shortly after the November 2016 election.

It seems impossible that someone could not be fully vetted in the ensuing 14+ months.

The only reason I can think of that would delay receiving actual security clearance is that there is something in the applicant's background that absolutely prevents them from receiving it.

If Kushner hasn't been cleared by now, he is never going to be cleared.

So he - and others in the same situation - either need to leave now, or quit getting to see stuff they are not worthy of seeing.

Any other position is anti-American, because it is putting our security at risk by divulging information to people who should not have that information.

This could be why (I posted this in the thread "Trump fills his administration "with only the best and most serious people."):


30 to 40 people in the White House have yet to obtain permanent security clearances a year into his presidency. This is concerning because of the reasons why they do not have permanent security clearances yet.

"This administration and indeed Trump's team before the campaign, during the campaign and now in the White House, includes people who are totally unfit to handle classified information," said Evan McMullin, a former CIA officer who briefly ran as an independent presidential candidate in 2016.

McMullin said some Trump appointees were having trouble getting clearances because of associations with foreign governments hostile to the US, or through personal habits -- like Porter for instance -- that could potentially leave them vulnerable to blackmail by foreign agents.

Good news out of my State today.

ST. LOUIS (KCTV/KMOV/AP) -- A St. Louis grand jury has indicted Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens on a felony invasion of privacy charge for allegedly taking a compromising photo of a woman with whom he had an affair in 2015, the city circuit attorney's office said Thursday.

The charge says Greitens knowingly took a photograph of a woman in a "state of full or partial nudity without the knowledge and consent" of that woman. The charge goes on to say the photograph was taken "in a place where a person would have a reasonable expectation of privacy, and the defendant subsequently transmitted the image contained in the photograph in a manner that allowed access to that image via a computer."

Thr Gov of Missouri is a loon. So, with the indictment, do you think he will have to step down, Pen?

I will be surprised if he goes easily. People have been calling for him to resign for months now. This is his post he made today on FB. It must really be humiliating for his wife.

As I have said before, I made a personal mistake before I was Governor. I did not commit a crime.

With today’s disappointing and misguided political decision, my confidence in our prosecutorial system is shaken, but not broken. I know this will be righted soon.

The people of Missouri deserve better than a reckless liberal prosecutor who uses her office to score political points.

I look forward to the legal remedies to reverse this action.

This will not for a moment deter me from doing the important work of the great people of Missouri.

The Latest: Expelled Colorado lawmaker switches parties

A Colorado lawmaker expelled from office over sexual misconduct allegations switched parties right before the vote, a move which would allow Republicans to name his replacement.

Rep. Steve Lebsock was a Democrat but changed his registration Friday to Republican.

The secretary of state's office says the switch was made about an hour before the expulsion vote as lawmakers debated his fate.

Because he technically was a Republican when he was expelled, a group of local Republicans would normally decide who will fill the district vacancy.

But the state GOP says that vacancy committee might decline to fill his seat with a Republican.

If that happens, Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper would appoint a replacement.

Democrats will still maintain their control of the chamber despite losing his seat.



Wonder how much the Repubs paid him to switch parties?

Meanwhile, ole Roy Moore is asking for 250,000 from his supporters because he's "struggled to make ends meet". falloff

Aly Raisman Sues US Gymnastics Over Nassar Sexual Abuse

The Needham Olympian has filed court documents in a California superior court.

By Daniel Libon, Needham Patch Staff | Mar 2, 2018 10:59 am ET

Aly Raisman Sues US Gymnastics Over Nassar Sexual Abuse

Needham native Aly Raisman is taking USA Gymnastics and their top officials to court over the sexual abuse committed by disgraced doctor Larry Nassar.

The two-time Olympic gold medalist filed court documents in Santa Clara Superior Court in California against the national governing body, Nassar, former USA Gymnastics President Steve Penny, and former USA Gymnastics Chairman Paul Parrilla. Court documents were filed on Feb. 28 and the case is scheduled to be in front of a judge June 12, according to the court's online docket database.

Raisman claims that the organization was more concerned about winning medals than the wellbeing of their athletes. In a statement given to m...ia outlets, Raisman said, "It has become painfully clear that these organizations have no intention of properly addressing this problem. Without a solid understanding of how this happened, it is delusional to think sufficient changes can be implemented. Meanwhile, thousands of young athletes continue to train and compete every day in this same broken system."


GO ALY! clapping
