State Attorney General Josh Hawley’s (R) “office has launched an inquiry into Gov. Eric Greitens’ (R) veterans charity, placing the Republican Party’s top Senate recruit in Missouri on a potential collision course with the state’s embattled Republican governor.
“Hawley’s investigation comes at a time when the governor faces a felony indictment in St. Louis and a related legislative investigation, which could be the first step toward impeachment.”
“Hawley’s decision to launch an inquiry into the campaign could increase the pressure from Democrats.”
Sen. Claire McCaskill’s (D) spokeswoman, Meira Bernstein: “After months of looking the other way, Hawley is now finally paying attention? Too little, too late.”
“Democrats have frequently noted that Greitens’ campaign made a $50,000 donation to Hawley’s campaign for attorney general.” (Kansas City Star)
