Missouri Attorney General May Charge State's Governor With Felony

On Tuesday, Missouri attorney general Josh Hawley said his office has uncovered evidence of criminal electronic theft by the state's GOP Governor Eric Greitens.

Greitens has already been charged with invasion of privacy stemming from an unrelated sex scandal.

Hawley, a current Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, told reporters Tuesday that the alleged theft by Greitens occurred during a broader investigation of a charity for combat veterans founded in 2007 by the governor, who is a former Navy SEAL commando.

Hawley went on to say that the evidence is enough to establish probable cause, but declined to say how much money Greitens is suspected of generating for his own benefit.
