Greitens’ lawyer wants order for records halted
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – An attorney for groups supporting Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens wants a judge to reverse his order to turn over documents to a House investigatory committee.
Attorney Catherine Hanaway filed a court motion Friday asserting that the House panel created to look into allegations against the Republican governor no longer has authority to demand documents because Greitens is resigning at 5 p.m. Friday.
Earlier this week, Cole County Circuit Judge Jon Beetem ordered Greitens’ campaign committee and a pro-Greitens nonprofit called A New Missouri to comply with a legislative subpoena by Friday.
The House still wants to enforce the subpoena for records of potential coordination between Greitens, his campaign and the nonprofit organization.
