Greitens' Exoneration — A Lesson for All Americans

Greitens' Exoneration — A Lesson for All Americans

Last week, Navy SEAL and former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens was fully exonerated after what has been nearly two years of hellacious, false, and vicious accusations.

Greitens was attacked because — like President Trump — he was an outsider who represented a threat to liberals nationally, and to politics as usual.

Greitens is an American Hero: Bronze Star, Purple Heart, four deployments in the global war on terrorism. He is a great leader: named by Fortune Magazine as one of the 50 greatest leaders in the world for his innovative, groundbreaking work with veterans.

He is an unapologetic conservative: pro-police, pro-veteran, pro-jobs, pro-freedom. And he took on the establishment — including politicians in the Republican Party — by banning lobbyist gifts, defeating a pay raise for politicians, and killing a corrupt tax credit program which stole from people and lined the pockets of insiders.

Greitens earned enemies by doing the right thing.

He fired bureaucrats who were failing veterans.

He cancelled politicians’ vacations and brought them back to work until they passed legislation to bring strong jobs back to Missouri. He was the most unapologetic pro-police governor in the country.

Greitens was attacked in one of the most vicious witch hunts in modern American history.

A prosecutor, who was once helped by a Super PAC partially funded by George Soros, charged him for ccrimes with no evidence.

A committee of politicians — led by his political enemies — held secret hearings, did not allow Greitens to even have lawyers present, and made a series of false and defamatory accusations in the press.

A "journalist" made cash payments — totaling at least $120,000 — to people who made false accusations against Greitens. Other liberal journalists piled on, lied to "witnesses," and repeated a wild series of false, defamatory, and now disproven accusations.

This was a coordinated attack. Liberals nationally feared Greitens.

Political insiders hated him. They dragged his name, his family, his friends, and his team through the mud for months, focring him to rack up millions of dollars in legal bills.

In June, 2018, Greitens resigned, saying that it was the best and necessary decision for his family. He also said then — as he did all along — that he was innocent of the false accusations made against him.

Now he’s been proven right.

Here’s how things stand today:

The prosecutor, who was once helped by a Super Pac partially funded by Soros, is under criminal investigaton for what she did to Greitens. 

Her lead investigator has been charged with seven felonies for lying under oath and tampering with evidence in manufacturing a false case against Greitens. You can read the indictment here.

The Missouri Ethics Commission concluded an exhaustive, 20-month, 23-subpoeana, 8,500 document investigation, and issued an order that said that they found "No evidence of any wrongdoing by Eric Greitens."

In an unprecedented move, that commission included a clause in their order that Greitens and others reserved all criminal and civil remedies to go after the people who made false accusations.

A resolution was just introduced in the Missouri House of Representatives, calling on Attorney General Barr and federal law enforcement to investigate the  "journalist" and the people behind him who delivered $120,000 in cash to people who made false accusations.

The national media have, from CNN to Breitbart, all headlined that the Commission found "No Evidence of Any Wrongdoing by Greitens."

But the Missouri media?

While a few have worked to set the record straight, many of them are still obsessed with hating Greitens. In some kind of "Mighty-Missouri Greitens-Derangement Syndrome," members of the Missouri media have resorted to calling him names and publishing imaginary conversations.

I’d be willing to bet that Greitens has done more for our country, for veterans, and for vulnerable people around the world, than all of his Missouri media critics combined.

Is it the media’s guilt about what they did to Greitens that makes them deranged?

Personally, I’d like to see Greitens’ name on the ballot again in Missouri.

I’d also love to see him in a Trump administration.

While it’s good that Greitens has been exonerated, the people of Missouri were still robbed of their governor. Let’s hope that the people of America are not also robbed of one of our nation’s most capable public servants.

And let the word go forth as a warning to all patriotic Americans: this is what the left, political insiders, and some member of the fake news media will do: they will commit crimes to drive conservative outsiders from office. The proof is in Missouri, but the fight has to be won across the country.
