On Wednesday, Greitens was a guest on Salem Radio Network The Hugh Hewitt show, where he attacked the victim, reviewing the facts of the case of his alleged assault. To this cauldron of misogyny is added Hewitt’s strange make-up of the charges against him. Media Matters Reports that during the interview, apparently about the Greens’ attempt to win the Republican nomination for governor of Missouri this year, Hewitt asked the Greitens if this thing that happened less than 30 months ago could happen – you know, the thing that ended with allegations that Eric Greitens assaulted, abused, kidnapped, and threatened a woman he admitted to having had an extramarital affair? But Hugh didn’t ask for it like that. He said this: “Look, you’re talking to a Republican. I just wanna win the Senate, Eric, and I’m afraid you’re Todd Aikin 2.0. I’m afraid Todd Aikin was killed for “lawful rape” and in this Missouri report you are accused by a witness of half-rape. What are you going to do when the commercials attack you with half-rape? “
“Half-rape.” It’s so irrelevant that it’s hard to tell how much of a carbon waste Hugh Hewitt is. The allegations against the Greens are graphic and include that his accuser was repeatedly slapped and punched and sexually assaulted by Greens. Then threatened with blackmail by the Greens. Candidate Greitens wants Hewitt and his listeners to know that the woman who said she forced her to have oral sex while she was crying uncontrollably in the basement has been paid. “You have to look at the facts. Here are the facts, sir. Again, a bribe of $ 120,000 was paid and the person you are referring to said maybe they remembered their accusations from a dream.
Let’s talk about this “dream” remark from the Greens first. What he and his team of dozens of lawyers jumped at was his accuser’s claim that, while tied up and blindfolded, “I can hear like a, like a cell phone – like a picture, and I can see a flash through the headband.” This photograph, you notice, exists. Greitens was very careful about whether or not he took the photo – a photo that exists. But, in a seven-hour deposition by defense attorneys, the woman said she had no recollection of ever seeing Greens in possession of a camera or phone.
When the defense attorney asked the woman, “Have you ever seen (Greens) in possession of a camera or a phone?” she replied, “Not to my knowledge. I haven’t seen it with it.”
An assistant constituency lawyer asked the woman, “Did you see what you believed to be a telephone?”
She said, “… I didn’t talk about it because I don’t know if it’s because I remember it through a dream or I – I’m not sure, but yeah, I do. feel like I saw it after it happened, but I didn’t mention it because of it. “
Special Prosecutor Baker, holding her press conference on charges and missing suspicious evidence, clarified that the accused woman was courageous and credible in all respects. “What is important to note about this victim through all of this is that she did not hesitate. Although she was repeatedly confronted by a large and aggressive team of lawyers expensive – I’m told this list can reach 40 lawyers – she kept it clean. “
The “$ 120,000 bribe,” throws the Greitens, refers to the money allegedly paid to the lawyer for the woman’s ex-husband – who may also have worked for a ” rich republican ”. who did not like the Greens and that it was personal ”, as reported by Los Angeles Times in 2018. But let’s be clear here: This $ 120,000 appears to have gone to the ex-husband’s and ex-husband’s lawyer to post the photo and recording of the woman admitting the case and the criminal behavior of the Greens. This money did not go to the woman, and this woman received nothing but heartbreak and abuse, in public and private, for her unfortunate connection to the former shame of a Navy SEAL.
Greitens, a man in his forties, clearly only resigned because he would have been arraigned otherwise, and worked to quickly rebuild his Mark of the former Navy SEAL turned politician by restarting the clock, with rumors he would return to the Navy to be redeployed to the battlefield. Whether the Greens really plan to do it or not, whether the Navy wants it back or not, everything has disappeared in the information cycle. But the Greens have made one thing clear: he wants to be governor of Missouri in 2022. The GOP is hoping the former alleged sex abuser and corrupt public official won’t win the main nomination. Of course, the Republican Party made this bed of sociopathic snakes so … they get what they vote for. And a reminder, the short time the ruling Greens spent included actions like signing anti-labor laws on the right to work with nearly $ 150 million in cuts to education and voting. He believes in promoting the politics of the Republican Party – a party that represents people like the Greens.
Huge Hewitt has been a right-wing hack for a long time, and like all hacks, the Trump administration and its failures exposed the levels of self-degradation to which people like Hewitt were willing to sink to stay in power and money. Like many archaic hawkers with right-wing microphones, Hewitt at one point in his career might have been hiding behind a “A great, enjoyable style that Beltway media mistook for thoughtful analysis.”
