Things are just not going the way, St Louis DA, Kim Gardner would like them to. First, she was found to have 62 acts of misconduct and 79 false representations in her prosecution of Eric Greitens. She is under investigation for misconduct in her prosecution of former Missouri governor, Eric Greitens. Greitens was forced to resign and Gardner had to drop the case as she didn’t have even a single bit of proof Greiten committed any crime.
Now, investigative reporter John Solomon won his case to force Gardner to turn over all communications she had with Soros, his associates, and political insiders about the Greitens case.

Gardner’s attempt to overturn a verdict by a lower court because she failed to file her brief for the court in a timely matter, so the Supreme Court refused to even hear her case and ruled In favor of John Solomon. She will even have to pay Solomon’s legal fees for the appeal, although Missouri taxpayers will probably pick up the tab.
The Missouri Supreme Court has ordered the case to return to the trial court and Gardner has been given just thirty days to produce them. I wonder what the odds are of her turning over the communications within the time limit. Or whether she will try to hide some of the more troublesome ones.
Via Just the News:
The public records request sought documents related to Gardner’s fizzled 2018 prosecution of Greitens, who resigned from the governorship less than two years into his term.
The prosecutor accused Greitens of felony invasion of privacy for allegedly threatening to release a photo of his partially nude girlfriend if she talked about their affair. However, Gardner had to drop the case after admitting she lacked the alleged photo and facing the prospect of being called as a witness in the case by Greteins’ lawyers.
Initially, Gardner ignored the public records request and then claimed that the documents did not fall under the state’s Sunshine Law. Solomon’s suit alleged that Gardner’s refusal was a knowing violation of the law and sought release of the records, civil penalties and attorneys’ fees.
The state Supreme Court refused to hear Gardner’s final appeal on Thursday. On Friday, the court sent the case back to trial court, while ordering that her office produce the requested records within 30 days. The court also ordered that Solomon be paid attorney’s fees and costs for the appeal.
