ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Governor Greitens defense and public relation teams on Thursday contested, once again, there is no proof of criminal wrongdoing by the governor.

As proof of their argument Thursday, Greitens' PR firm, Clout Public Affairs, provided a copy of the transcript of Wednesday's court proceeding.

During it, the defense read part of the deposition of the William Tisaby, an investigator hired by Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner. In the deposition, Tisaby discussed his knowledge of the investigation.

In response, the prosecution said via a statement: 

We are sure the citizens of St. Louis and Judge Burlison will find the irony in the Governor’s request for a bench trial due to extensive pre-trial publicity, while at the same time his attorneys and his public relations firm continue to send out press releases to generate pre-trial publicity.

Judge Burlison admonished the defense in court about this very conduct, yet they continue to violate pre-trial publicity rules.

The investigation is ongoing. We are continuing to gather evidence, and we allow the evidence to guide our path to the truth.
