JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri lawmakers are publicly reading the previously secret testimony of a woman who has accused Gov. Eric Greitens of misconduct during an extramarital affair.
Members of a special House investigatory committee on Tuesday began reading aloud the transcripts of the woman’s testimony to a St. Louis grand jury that indicted Greitens on an invasion-of-privacy charge. They also plan to read the woman’s testimony taken in depositions by Greitens’ attorneys.
The criminal charge was dropped last week. But a special prosecutor is considering whether to refile that charge or others stemming from what Greitens has described as a consensual affair.
The House panel is considering whether to try to impeach Greitens in an attempt to remove him from office.
