(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."

We started off the weekend today with continued muggy and hot conditions with temperatures in the 90s. There are thunderstorms to the west headed towards us. Some of the area may see a slight chance for rain overnight. Tomorrow looks to be another day in the mid 90s with a slight chance for thunderstorms in the afternoon. There is a cold front coming our way giving us some much cooler temperatures to start off the work week. Highs will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
