Raw Deal: The Corrupt Political Takedown of Navy SEAL Gov. Eric Greitens


Elected as Missouri's Governor in 2016, Eric Greitens, a former Navy SEAL and conservative outsider, swiftly confronted political insiders and career politicians during his inaugural year. Notably, Greitens took a strong stand against corruption by eliminating a dubious tax credit that had funneled over $1.3 billion in tax dollars to syndicators and lobbyists over the past decade. In 2017, when St. Louis faced violent protests following the acquittal of a police officer, Greitens acted decisively, restoring order by the second night. However, an alliance between a George Soros-funded prosecutor in St. Louis and politicians from both parties conspired to undermine the duly elected Governor, echoing the challenges faced by President Trump in 2016-17, as noted by John Solomon, Fox News Contributor and Editor-in-Chief of Just The News.

The orchestrated effort to oust Greitens involved dubious tactics, including at least $120,000 in cash bribes delivered by a convicted felon to witnesses in the case. Notable figures, including Fox News' Gregg Jarrett, former Trump advisors Seb Gorka and Corey Lewandowski, former NYPD Commissioner Bernie Kerik, and ex-White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, voiced support against the criminal endeavor. Ultimately, all charges against Greitens were dropped in 2018, with the Missouri Ethics Commission subsequently exonerating him, finding "no evidence of any wrongdoing." In a further twist, the ex-FBI agent who investigated Greitens was indicted on seven felony counts of perjury and evidence tampering in the case. As of 2020, the Soros-funded St. Louis DA, Kim Gardner, remains under active criminal investigation, highlighting the ongoing scrutiny surrounding the orchestrated campaign against Greitens.
