George Conway: DeSantis plans for new police force to monitor elections 'just pathetic'
Missouri governor files restraining order against state AG's investigation
Embattled Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens (R) filed a temporary restraining order this week against Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley (R), barring him from investigating the governor and his involvement with the charity The Mission Continues.
The temporary restraining order alleges "Hawley clearly cannot be impartial in any investigation related to Gov. Greitens," citing Hawley's calls for Greitens to "resign immediately."
Jefferson City's CBS 13 KRCG reports that the request for the temporary restraining order accuses Hawley of having a "personal interest in the resignation, impeachment, and prosecution of Gov. Greitens."
On Tuesday, Hawley announced his office had obtained evidence of criminal wrongdoing by Greitens which showed he had improperly obtained and used a donor list from a charity he ran before seeking office - The Mission Continues - to help fundraise for his campaign.
Hawley reportedly issued subpoenas to individuals involved with the charity last month.
Greitens is currently resisting calls on multiple fronts to step down from office, after a special report by the Missouri House of Representatives deemed allegations of sexual misconduct by the governor highly credible.
Hawley, who is running against Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) this November, has thus far refused requests by Greitens's lawyers to step away from the charity investigation.
