Hawley stated that St. Louis attorneys are now investigating all the material that has been sent over to them. "The Attorney General held a completely frivolous and inappropriate press conference on a non-issue", Martin said in a statement. He called Gardner a liberal prosecutor.

She said Greitens should resign to spare Missouri residents the ordeal of impeachment.

Missouri House and Senate leadership are now calling for the resignation of Gov. Eric Greitens as his growing legal troubles continue to distract from the business of the state.

John Ammann, the supervisor of the civil litigation clinic at Saint Louis University, said there was plenty of time for Gardner to make a decision. "Indeed, the entire Attorney General's Office must be recused due to the appearance of impropriety cast when its official website contains a call for its investigative target to "resign immediately" based on "certainly impeachable" conduct".

Greitens said allegations that he potentially the broke law by using the donor list for his campaign are "ridiculous". Susan Ryan, a spokeswoman for Gardner's office, said the office is reviewing the evidence and declined to comment further.

The governor is also asking for a special prosecutor to be brought in on the case. He also referred the matter to a House committee that will be recommending whether to impeach Greitens.

In 2016, the Associated Press reported that donors to The Mission Continues were receiving fundraising pitches from the governor's campaign.

In a written statement Tuesday, Richardson, along with Speaker Pro-tem Elijah Haahr, R-Springfield, and GOP Floor Leader Rob Vescovo, R-Arnold, cited Attorney General Josh Hawley's report that alleges Greitens illegally used a list of donors from a charity he founded to raise money for his gubernatorial campaign.

Hawley opened the inquiry into The Mission Continues in March, and he said Tuesday that the probe is ongoing. The AP found that Greitens' campaign had raised almost $2 million from donors who previously gave significant amounts to The Mission Continues.

"I will not be resigning the governor's office", he said.

Any remaining support Gov. Eric Greitens may have had from the Missouri legislature's top Republican leaders is now gone.

Greitens, an Iraq veteran, founded The Mission Continues in 2007 but left the charity in 2014.

Hawley called for Greitens to step down after allegations of sexual misconduct outlined in a House investigatory report. Greitens faces a felony invasion-of-privacy charge for allegedly taking a nonconsensual photograph of the woman while she was partially nude. Senate Democrats proposed blocking all bills from going to Greitens' desk in protest of claims against him.

The bill's passage came as Republican legislative leaders have pledged to keep working despite mounting turmoil in the governor's office.
