(ST. LOUIS) A St. Louis circuit judge has ruled that he will not toss out the charge of invasion of privacy against Missouri Governor Eric Greitens.

The governor's attorneys have cited a number of concerns in the invasion of privacy case against the governor.

Namely, they claim a private investigator hired by the prosecutor in the case lied under oath.

Meanwhile Greitens has filed a temporary restraining order against Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley after Hawley announced his office found possible wrongdoing regarding charity donors and campaign funding.

In a news conference earlier this week, Josh Hawley said his team found evidence suggesting that Greitens used a list of donors from his veteran's charity, The Mission Continues, for political fundraising.

Greitens immediately fired back saying, "Fortunately for Josh, he's better at press conferences than the law. Anyone who has set foot in a Missouri courtroom knows these allegations are ridiculous."

A strong cold front has pushed through northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. For tonight, we'll see clear skies as overnight lows drop down to the middle 50s. We could wake up to some foggy conditions on Monday morning, but it will be a sunny & nice day for the first day of fall.
