Missouri House To Consider Impeaching Gov. Eric Greitens

Missouri House To Consider Impeaching Gov. Eric Greitens

While secretly recording the conversation, the husband said, "You've been half-raped and blackmailed" and she agreed.

Humphreys is an executive at TAMKO Building Products in Joplin. But reaction from fellow Republicans indicates Greitens may have a more hard time - in part, because Trump's moral shortcomings were known to voters before his election, whereas Greitens' had cultivated a campaign persona of an all-American hero.

"Witness 1 testified to Greitens' demeanor at the time, stating, '(He) kind of had this controlling sort of - again, it nearly as if he had a - like we were on a movie set".

Humphreys' call for Greitens to step down signals the first public disavowal from a prominent top individual donor to Greitens' campaign.

CNN has reached out to the other members of Missouri's congressional delegation for comment on whether they believe Greitens should step down.

Greitens has said he'll continue to serve and that allegations of violence or sexual assault are false.

The 24-page report, prepared by a special committee of the state's predominantly Republican House of Representatives, included detailed testimony by the woman, referred to only as Witness 1, who described a sexual relationship with Greitens that included a string of misconduct and started one day when he groped her. Jamilah Nasheed of St. Louis first floated the idea of stopping future votes.

Greitens' office has hired a Washington, D.C., attorney who has represented other governors during impeachment proceedings.

In a press conference an hour before the report's release, Greitens was defiant against calls for his resignation and said the report signed by five Republicans and two Democrats would include "lies and falsehoods".

Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard, R-Joplin, stopped short of calling on Greitens to resign.

Farther into the committee report, the woman described an encounter with Greitens in which he seemed to acknowledge he took a photo but said he destroyed it: (Woman) "You took a picture.' He said, '..., it's just because I fantasized about you, I fantasized about all these things, and you could ruin my life".

"While these actions took place before his election and are otherwise arguably a private matter, the testimony reveals behavior that should not be tolerated anywhere but especially not by those holding public office", Humphreys said.

Trump also faces domestic pressure, over an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on the office of his attorney, Michael Cohen . It was not yet clear what decision Trump will make in response to the latest attack.

In court Thursday, Greitens' attorneys said prosecutors who initially claimed the recorder had malfunctioned finally shared a copy of the recording Wednesday night.

Republican House Speaker Todd Richardson called the woman's testimony "beyond disturbing" and defended the integrity of the investigation.

"So he's got this whole thing down of what he was going to say or whatever, but he was super - he was in a controlled state, which at this point was intriguing to me'".

The Kansas City-based Women's Foundation is calling on Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens to step down.

For now Greitens, who was once considered a rising star in the GOP, is refusing calls to resign. She said that when they had finished, "out of nowhere he kind of smacked me and grabbed me and shoved me down on the ground".

The woman testified that she would not have been interested if he simply told her he wanted to have sex at that time, but she thought he was suggesting a "sexy workout" and was curious and confused.

The bipartisan committee was formed in February after Greitens was indicted by a St. Louis City jury on felony invasion of privacy charges: blackmailing a former mistress by tying her to exercise equipment and taking photos of her naked.

Doyle says sexual violence should not be tolerated and the "era of impunity is over". Also, the St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office files a motion in Greitens' case to disqualify one of his attorneys due to his involvement defending the governor in the state's secretive app investigation. Kehoe and Greitens are both Republicans. Legislative leaders said they will call themselves into a special session.

She testified that Greitens then said "You're not going to mention my name".

Missouri lawmakers met for briefings on the special committee's report in closed-door sessions.

In addition to the legislative investigation and the criminal case, Hawley is investigating The Mission Continues, the veterans charity founded by Greitens, as it relates to the state's consumer protection and charitable registration and reporting laws. He then told her he was going to show her how to do a proper pull up, she said.

Greitens has admitted to the affair but denied other allegations contained in the report.
