Committee to release Greitens investigation findings next week
JEFFERSON CITY - The House Special Investigative Committee said it plans to issue a report next week after concluding its investigation of Gov. Eric Greitens and allegations of blackmail.
Rep. Jay Barnes, R-Jefferson City, and House Speaker Todd Richardson, R-Poplar Bluff, made the announcement Thursday.
“When the committee finalizes its report, we will release it to the public,” Richardson said in a statement.
Greitens was indicted on a felony invasion of privacy charge after he was accused of taking a nude photo of a woman and threatening to release it if she went public with their affair.
Greitens has repeatedly denied blackmail allegations.
He recently asked the investigating committee to hold off on releasing its findings until after his criminal trial. Attorneys said the report could impact jury selection.
His trial is set to begin May 14.
