Greitens' lawyers accuse prosecutors of withholding evidence that contradicts report

More prominent Republicans urge Missouri governor after reporting alleging unwanted sexual contact

But he's been hemorrhaging support from fellow Republicans across the state ever since the scandal broke. "I will continue to serve the people of Missouri as their governor and to work for you every day".

Hawley is running for Democratic U.S. Sen. Many lawmakers are calling for the Governor to resign after the report's release. Eric Greitens lawyers said the Governor is now defenseless.

"I have read the official report from the Republican-led Missouri House investigation, including the sworn testimony", McCaskill said.

Schaaf says the governor's resignition would save lawmakers the extra cost of a special legislative session to consider whether to impeach him. He is to go to trial May 14.

Greitens's statement comes one day after legislative leaders issued a report saying a woman told them Greitens forced her into multiple sexual encounters in the year before he ran for public office.

The court has a standing order for this case that the Circuit Attorney's must be produced new evidence within 48 hours.

Greitens, in a statement to reporters prior to the report's release Wednesday, called the investigation a "political witch hunt" and characterized the findings as "tabloid trash gossip" based on "lies and falsehoods", although witnesses interviewed with the committee under oath, and the committee found the woman to be "an overall credible witness".

There was outrage across the political spectrum on the release of the report.

Asked about Hawley urging Greitens to vacate his seat, McCaskill replied: "Happened really quickly after I did".

Defense attorneys accused the St. Louis circuit attorney's office office of withholding evidence, specifically a taped deposition of the alleged victim and notes from investigator William Don Tisaby, who was hired by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner. Greitens relented after she begged him to stop, according to her testimony.

Greitens has called the committee report "one-sided tabloid trash gossip" and said the committee is on a witch hunt.

Greitens, who's a Republican, instantly faced bipartisan calls to step down after the Missouri House on Wednesday released a disturbing account from a woman who claims the governor forced her to perform oral sex on him at his home. He's accused of taking a non-consensual photo of a woman he was having an affair with back in 2015 then transmitting the nude or partially nude photo of the woman in a way that allowed computer access to it. When she didn't answer, he spanked her.

She described another incident to the committee during which she said he smacked her, grabbed her and shoved her to the ground.

GOP Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard of Joplin says his office will start collecting signatures from the chamber's members in anticipation of those recommendations starting next week.

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens is using similar wording as President Donald Trump to denounce accusations of unwanted sexual aggression. But that doesn't change what's in the House committee report.

We are now about a month away from the criminal trial, with Missouri's Governor facing a felony invasion of privacy charge. The Judge said the former mistresses ex-husband can answer questions about a possible money trail.
