Testimony Of Greitens Accuser Read Publicly

Updated:

    Missouri lawmakers are publicly reading the previously secret testimony of a woman who has accused Governor 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.
     Greitens' campaign meanwhile is launching a television ad to bolster support for the governor in advance of a possible impeachment effort.
    The ad cites the criminal charge that was dropped and calls on people to "stand with Navy SEAL Eric Greitens."
