Tallahassee, FL --- June 9, 2012

Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is complaining about possible witness tampering by a lawyer representing the former head of the Republican Party of Florida.

Former GOP boss Jim Greer goes to trial in July on charges he steered party money to a shell company he created. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Documents released Friday show Crist called the Florida Department of Law Enforcement after learning of exchanges between Greer's lawyer and John Morgan. Morgan had been representing Crist.

The documents include summaries of questioning by FDLE of Morgan and Crist as well as emails between Morgan and Greer's attorney, Damon Chase.

Morgan told FDLE that Chase said he planned to depose Crist and ask embarrassing questions about Crist's personal life and habits.
