ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - "This is an absolute smear campaign against her," says the attorney for Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens' former mistress, talking about the defense team's claim that she testified she might have only seen the phone Greitens used to take the incriminating picture, in a dream.
 
Scott Simpson says the way her testimony is being charactized is "completely inaccurate."
 
Simpson tells KMOX his client did not want to answer a specific question during the deposition because she wasn't confident in her memory.
 
"The defense team has now taken that and tried to spin it into saying that she somehow dreamed this up," he says.

Simpson says he and his client have a right to review the transcript before it is finalized for release. He says so far, it has not been provided to them.
 
"Either the defense team is quoting from a transcript that they do not have yet, in which case, that's a little troubling," or Simpson says the defense team has not turned over a piece of evidence, which he says would be ironic.

He is supporting a motion to release the entire transcript, but he doesn't know if that will happen.

Meanwhile, Greitens' lead attorney says the St. Louis Circuit Attorney has been witholding evidence that could help his client.
 
Ed Dowd tells KMOX's Charlie Brennan that Kim Gardner knew Greitens' mistress said she might only have seen the phone that took the incriminating picture in a dream, but never told them.
 
"She said in her deposition, 'I've told the circuit attorney's office that I had a dream or a vision,' and yet we were never told that," he says.
 
Dowd says his team was also never told about the woman's two-hour videotaped deposition, and says the claims it was never recorded because of a camera malfunction, "suspicious."
