An attorney for Missouri Governor Eric Greitens is suggesting that the chairman of a House committee should be a witness in his own investigation of Greitens.
The suggestion Thursday by Greitens' campaign attorney Catherine Hanaway is similar to the tactic that Greitens' lawyers used successfully in his now-dismissed criminal invasion-of-privacy case.
Hanaway suggested that investigatory committee chairman Representative Jay Barnes had made himself a "material witness" to his own investigation. Among other things, she cited his receipt of an audio recording in which a woman explains to her husband that Greitens had bound, blindfolded and taken a photo of her partially nude during a sexual encounter in 2015. Greitens has denied criminal wrongdoing.
In response, an attorney for the investigatory panel, Edward "Chip" Robertson Jr., releases a statement Thursday saying Hanaway has impugned the integrity of the House in an attempt to divert attention from an investigation into the governor.
