Investigative committee plans to meet for the second day in a row
JEFFERSON CITY —
The Missouri House committee looking into allegations against Gov. Eric Greitens was scheduled to hold another closed hearing Tuesday, April 3 at 12:15 p.m. at the Missouri State Capitol.
This would be the eighth time the committee has met.
Monday's meeting, the seventh closed hearing the committee held, took place at the Jefferson City Police Department.
A St. Louis grand jury indicted Greitens on February 22 for felony invasion of privacy. Greitens was accused of taking a picture of a woman with whom he was having an affair in a state of undress without her permission in 2015. Greitens acknowledged the affair, but has denied any criminal wrongdoing.
In March, the Missouri House of Representatives approved a resolution to create a committee to start an investigation into charges against the governor. The committee has been placed under a gag order and all hearings thus far have been closed.
Committee members had not spoken to the media about any of the hearings so far except to say that the committee was on track to wrap up its investigation within its 40-day timeline.
Greitens was scheduled for a jury trial May 14, with jury selection scheduled to begin May 10.
