Greitens' attorney asks CNN to retract story about Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry

Gov. Greitens personal attorney claims he will

'There was no blackmail, there was no violence, there was no threat of violence, there was no threat of blackmail, there was no threat of using a photograph for blackmail.

"I'm very cautious about tax increases and tax decreases", he added.

And In the days since the news broke, Greitens told the Associated Press that he has called nearly every state lawmaker in Missouri, and posted an apology on Facebook that reads in part: 'I ask for your forgiveness and hope you can find it in your heart to do so.

Asked about CNN's report, Greitens said neither he nor his attorneys have been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation about any issue.

The St. Louis city prosecutor announced last week that it would launch a probe into Greitens amid the allegations.

The distraught woman can be heard weeping in the audio as she explains the the encounter.

The Governor was vehement when asked Saturday if he had ever slapped the woman: 'Absolutely not'.

DOJ asks Supreme Court to review DACA ruling
The administration resumed accepting renewal applications from DACA recipients after Alsup's order. In September, Trump rescinded DACA and gave Congress until March to save it.

The governor admitted being unfaithful to his wife but later denied the woman's claim to her now ex-husband, recorded without her knowledge, that Greitens took a partially nude photo of her and threatened to release it if she spoke about their relationship. "I'm just going to make sure that if there is a tax cut, there's an appropriate amount of spending cut to make sure we don't end up in a tax situation or revenue problem". However, Greitens is continuing to do his job for the state of Missouri.

"I made a mistake with one woman", he said.

An attorney for Missouri Governor Eric Greitens has asked CNN to retract a story it reported last night that indicated the Federal Bureau of Investigation had opened an inquiry on the governor.

Eli Karabell, who volunteered to help the governor's transition team in 2016, told CNN he engaged in an hourlong phone interview with two Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in November.

Greitens told the AP he doesn't know Karabell.

Amid the controversy over his affair, Greitens postponed a scheduled statewide promotional tour this past week for what he had billed in his State of the State address as "the boldest state tax reform in America". Greitens now finds himself in a similar position, and he said he recently received a call from that friend encouraging him to hang in there. "God has a way of helping you to move through suffering and actually become stronger".
