JEFFERSON CITY (AP) — The Latest on the investigation of Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens (all times local):

12:30 p.m.

A special committee of the Missouri House is set to release a report on its investigation into Gov. Eric Greitens' use of a charity donor list for fundraising during his 2016 gubernatorial campaign.

The House Special Investigative Committee on Oversight says the report will be released at 3 p.m. Wednesday.

The Republican governor is facing calls for impeachment. He goes to trial May 14 on an invasion of privacy charge stemming from an extramarital affair in 2015, before he was elected. The woman told the same House committee in an earlier report that Greitens was so sexually aggressive that she was sometimes left afraid and crying.

Greitens was charged last month with computer data tampering for allegedly obtaining the donor list from the veterans charity he founded and using it for his political campaign without the charity's permission.

Greitens denies wrongdoing in both cases, calling himself a victim of a "political witch hunt."

10 a.m.

Missouri House Democrats are demanding that the Republican leadership launch immediate impeachment proceedings against Gov. Eric Greitens, accusing the GOP of stalling.

A letter Tuesday to House Speaker Todd Richardson signed by 16 Democrats requests immediate action to remove Greitens from office.

The Republican governor goes on trial May 14 on an invasion of privacy charge in St. Louis. He is accused of taking a compromising and unauthorized photo of a woman with whom he had an affair in 2015.

Calls for impeachment escalated last month after a House committee released testimony in which the woman accused Greitens of coercing her into sex acts and slapping and spanking her.

Greitens faces a second charge accusing him of using a charity donor list for his gubernatorial campaign.
