LISTEN: Gut-wrenching audio clip released of blackmail accusations against Missouri GOP governor

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Thursday released audio of a woman claiming that she had an extramarital affair with Missouri’s Republican Governor Eric Greitens, during which he allegedly took a photograph of her naked and blindfolded and threatened to share the image if she told others about their encounter.

Greitens, a former Navy SEAL, acknowledged the affair on Wednesday in a statement to News 4, though he denied blackmailing the woman through his attorney in a Twitter post Thursday.

The released audio is a recorded conversation between the woman and her now ex-husband, who told News 4 there’s “no worse person” than someone like Greitens.

“He took a picture of my wife naked as blackmail,” the ex-husband said. “There is no worse person. I think it’s as bad as it gets, It’s as bad as it gets when someone takes advantage of something.”

In the recording, the woman is heard telling her then-husband she had “I met Eric a year ago and I instantly had a big crush on him.”

“Tell me the truth,” her ex-husband implores. “The truth. Only the truth.”

“So on Saturday morning before my first client, I did go to his house,” she said.

“For the first time?” he asked.
“For the first time, ever,” she replied. “Like said, nothing, period, had ever happened or taken place until this snowball, this f*cking tornado just happened. I know I brought it on.”

Later in the audio, the woman said Greitens invited her downstairs to teach her “how to do a proper pull-up.”

“I knew that he was being sexual and I still let him,” she said. 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.”

“I didn’t even know,” she continued. “I feel like I didn’t even know. I was jut numb. I just stood there and didn’t f*cking know.”

“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,” the woman alleged.

GOP Sen. Ron Johnson: ‘My guess’ is John Bolton is telling truth about Trump and Ukraine

Published

on

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who once personally lobbied President Donald Trump to release the hold on military aid to Ukraine, seemed to give former national security adviser John Bolton some credibility while talking with reports on Monday.

Politico's Kyle Cheney reports that Johnson said that "my guess is John Bolton tells the truth," although he said he still wanted to hear the Trump administration's full case and also questioned the "exquisite" timing of the leak about Bolton's upcoming book, in which he reportedly says Trump told him he was holding up military aid to Ukraine until it agreed to launch an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden.

‘Cat is out of the bag’: Trump supporter Byron York reverses and says GOP must allow Bolton impeachment testimony

Published

on

The Washington Examiner's Byron York has long been sympathetic to President Donald Trump. He has repeatedly defended the president's conduct in Ukraine and attacked the Democratic case. Just a week ago, he penned a column criticizing the idea that Trump has been less cooperative in the impeachment trial than President Bill Clinton. And in particular, he has opposed Democratic demands for former National Security Adviser John Bolton to be called to testify against the president, saying, "if anything is covered by executive privilege, it would be the president's private conversations with his national security adviser about issues of foreign policy and national security."

Published

John Bolton's book bombshell may have broken President Donald Trump's grip on the Republican Party.

The former national security adviser's forthcoming book "The Room Where It Happened" claims Trump explicitly tied Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe Biden, and GOP senators are publicly saying they want him to testify during the impeachment trial.

“I think it’s increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton," said Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT).

.@SenatorRomney tells reporters just now: “I think it’s increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton.”
