The committee investigating allegations against Governor Eric Greitens met again Monday afternoon.

It marked the third hearing held at the Jefferson City Police Department. The doors and windows were covered and committee members were let in the building by officers.

The committee has been placed on a gag order and cannot speak about the investigation.

Committee members and chair Jay Barnes did not answer questions as to if future hearings would be held at the police department, if they would be open to the public and which witnesses would be testifying.

In February, a St. Louis grand jury indicted Greitens on a felony invasion of privacy charge. He was accused of taking a compromising photo of a woman with whom he was having an affair without her permission in 2015.

Greitens has denied any criminal wrongdoing.
