Missouri Lawmakers Subpoena Governor


     An attorney for Missouri Governor Eric Greitens says she doesn't know whether the governor will comply with a subpoena from legislators.
      Missouri lawmakers announced Friday they've subpoenaed Greitens to testify before a special panel considering whether to try to impeach and remove him from office.
    House investigatory panel chairman, Representative Jay Barnes, says the subpoena calls for Greitens to appear before the committee on June 4.
    The Republican governor has so far declined to testify before the committee, which has been investigating allegations against him since March. 
    Lawmakers are looking into claims of sexual misconduct, misuse of a charity donor list for political fund raising and other campaign finance allegations against Greitens.
    The interactions between lawmakers and the governor's attorneys have grown increasingly heated this week during public committee hearings.
