    So far the story is he says it was consensual except when he plugged in his phone it sinked with the cloud and that's where the "transmission" comes into play.

    He is facing 7 years if convicted.

    Depravity and a reprobate mind do not discriminate.

    Greitens lawyer Edward L. Dowd: “In forty years of public and private practice, I have never seen anything like this. The charges against my client are baseless and unfounded. My client is absolutely innocent. We will be filing a motion to dismiss.”

    That is every lawyers duty.

    He was indicted by a grand jury. That is far more powerful than a simple ambitious prosecutor.

    Is it possible he is innocent? Of course but it doesn't look good at this point.

    It just never seems to stop with the members of the Party of No Values.

    Do as we say, not as we do.

    But then again, look at who the head of their party is. He leads the way when it comes to scumbaggery.

    But, but, but, but Bill Clinton...

    His life is a soap opera... X Democrats come with issues...:laugh:

    ....


    The ex-husband provided details to News 4 of what he claims was a sexual encounter between his now-ex-wife and Greitens back in March of 2015. News 4 has spoken to the woman's attorney who has stated: “No Comment.”

    His now ex-wife wife didn't know he was recording their conversation as she confessed intimate details to him.

    Recorded Conversation:

    Ex-Husband: “Tell me the truth. The truth. Only the truth.
    Woman: So, on Saturday morning, before my first client, I did go to his house.
    Ex-Husband: For the first time?
    Woman: For the first time. Ever. Like I said, nothing, period, had ever happened or taken place until this snowball. This (expletive) tornado just happened. I know I brought this on.”


    The woman explains that her interactions with Greitens were sometimes initiated by herself. They met-because she cut his hair.

    Woman: "I met Eric a year ago and I instantly had a big crush on him."

    She said she felt drawn to talk to him. But when he told her, “I want you to come over" to his house, she first said no. She wanted to meet for coffee.
    But Greitens said “I can't, I can't be seen with you. This is wrong."

    Woman: "I said, I know. So he said. Just, please come to my house."

    She stated she agreed to go to his house to "talk." It's unclear where Greitens' wife or children were at this time.
    The woman said that when the sexual encounter began that Saturday and said it was consensual.

    Woman: "He said: "I'll make you feel better. I'll make you feel good. Come downstairs. I want to show you how to do a proper pull-up. And I knew he was being sexual and I still let him. And he used some sort of tape, I don't what it was, and taped my hands to these rings and then put a blindfold on me.”

    She went on to say that some of his actions-scared her.

    Woman: "I didn't even know. I feel like I don't even know. I was just numb. I just stood there and didn't (expletive) know."

    She went on, describing what Greitens allegedly did next that made her feel sick.

    Woman: “He stepped back, I saw a flash through the blindfold and he said: "you're never going to mention my name, otherwise there will be pictures of me everywhere."

    Her now ex-husband said that statement upset him.

    “He took a picture of my wife naked as blackmail. There is no worse person,” the ex-husband told News 4. And that is still what upsets him. He told News 4, “I think it's as bad as it gets, It’s as bad as it gets when someone takes advantage of something.”
