"Like all criminal defendants, Governor Greitens is presumed innocent under the law until proven guilty", he said.

Eric Greitens is now facing two more felony charges Friday after the Missouri Attorney General announced he found evidence of criminal activity in the governor's charity.

Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley announced Tuesday that his investigation into Greitens' charity, The Mission Continues, has uncovered evidence of criminal activity.

Hawley's office has said that its investigation into The Mission Continues began after the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported in February that it had it had obtained a copy of an email indicating that Taylor had shared the charity donor list in January 2015 with Michael Hafner, who had been working for Greitens' gubernatorial exploratory committee, and Danny Laub, Greitens' first campaign manager.

"These are serious charges-and an important reminder that no one is above the law in Missouri", Hawley said in the statement.

Gardner's office is also behind Greitens' indictment on one count of felony invasion of privacy for allegedly taking a semi-nude photo of a woman with whom he was having an extramarital affair, in which she is bound and gagged.

Greitens raised almost $2 million for his gubernatorial run after he obtained a list of top donors to The Mission Continues without permission from the St. Louis-based charity he founded in 2007.

Hawley said his investigation revealed evidence that Greitens' use of the charity's donor list broke the law. This time the focus could be on alleged wrongdoing concerning The Mission Continues charity Greitens founded, and his campaign for governor.

"The court will find Eric innocent of yet another absurd charge, and the people of Missouri will learn the true motives behind this action soon enough", Mr. Dowd said.

A probable cause statement released by Gardner's office Friday states that Greitens knew the list was taken without the charity's permission.

Governor Greitens has filed requests for a restraining order against Hawley and a special prosecutor in The Mission Continues case. Dowd said. "Give me a break". Hawley said he had handed the evidence over to Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner's Office and that the statute of limitations for the charge was fast approaching.

St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison on Thursday denied a motion to dismiss the felony invasion of privacy case against Greitens, likely giving the embattled governor a chance to defend himself in trial, which is set to begin on May 14. His attorneys, in court hearings and filings, have painted a picture of an incompetent prosecutor who rather than working with police to investigate Greitens hired a private investigator who bungled the investigation, hid evidence and lied to the court.

She is wasting thousands and thousands of taxpayer dollars to do all of this. This prosecutor can come after me with everything she's got, but as all faithful people know: in time comes the truth.

Greitens' explanation was, "We were calling people who had become friends and gotten to know me over the course of seven years, who invested in The Mission Continues and got to know me as a leader".

But a Missouri state house committee released a bombshell investigative report last week detailing an alleged nonconsensual sexual encounter with his former hairdresser.
