What Is She Hiding? Soros-Funded St. Louis Circuit Attorney Sued for Communications with Felon-Journalist, Her Chief Investigator on Greitens’ Case Indicted on 6 Counts of Perjury

Scott Faughn and Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner

As reported earlier investigative journalist and Fox News Contributor John Solomon sued controversial St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner last week.

What was not reported was the extent of the lawsuit or the extent of this Missouri scandal.

John Solomon sued Gardner for violating Sunshine Laws.  Gardner, a Soros-funded circuit attorney, refused to turn over documents related to the case against Eric Greitens, a Navy SEAL and former Governor.

In 2018 the Soros-backed St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner led a campaign to attack, smear and oust popular Missouri Republican Governor Eric Greitens.

When Kim Gardner was elected in 2016, over 70% of Kim Gardner’s campaign funds came from George Soros, over $190,000.

Gardner and her associate and former FBI agent, William Tisaby, were successful in forcing Governor Eric Greitens to resign from office.

Former Missouri Governer Eric Greitens was indicted in February 2018 on invasion of privacy charges for taking a photo of a naked mistress before he ran for governor.

The woman claimed it was very traumatizing.
The woman also admitted she went back to Eric’s house later that same day for more sex.

The photo never materialized.  And according to our sources there never was  a photo.

Now John Solomon is demanding Gardner’s communications with the convicted felon Scott Faughn the publisher of The Missouri Times.  Faughn is a felon and previously convicted on three counts of forgery, and currently works as a journalist in Missouri.

In 2018, during the accusations against Governor Greitens, Scott Faughn admitted to delivering cash payments totaling at least $120,000 to people who made false accusations against Missouri Governor Eric Greitens. 

Faughn refused to say where the money came from.

John Solomon’s lawsuit seeks communications between Gardner and Faughn from the time of Greitens’ inauguration in January, 2017, through the summer of 2019.  This was around the time when Scott Faughn hosted now-Governor Mike Parson on his show, This Week in Missouri Politics, to mark Parson’s year in office since Governor Greitens’ resignation.

Gardner’s office does not dispute that she has records of her communications with Faughn.  She has, however, refused to turn over such records.

The argument of her office, cited in the lawsuit filed in St. Louis Twenty-Second Judicial Circuit, is that John Solomon is not entitled to Gardner’s communications with Scott Faughn due to matters of privilege.  Her office also argued that the Greitens case is closed, and that the only communications she had with Faughn relate to the charges she made and then later dropped against Greitens.

In 2018, Gardner charged Greitens with taking and transmitting a nude photograph of his affair partner, and threatening blackmail.  Greitens denied the accusations.  No evidence of a photograph or of blackmail was ever produced. Gardner dropped the charge when she herself was going to have to testify under oath.

Gardner’s lead investigator, former FBI agent William Tisaby, has been charged with seven felonies for manufacturing a case against Greitens.  The charges against Tisaby include six counts of felony perjury and one felony count of evidence tampering.  Gardner was Tisaby’s supervisor, and sat with him during depositions when he lied.

Gardner is due to be deposedby Special Prosecutor Gerard Carmody on January 24, this Friday!
