Democrats call on Missouri Gov. Greitens to resign

Report Details Sex Claims Against Missouri Governor

The Missouri state constitution counts "moral turpitude" as grounds for impeachment.

Hawley is now challenging U.S. Sen.

Gov. Eric Greitens delivers the State of the State address on January 10.

CNN, citing the committee report, said the woman testified that Greitens held his penis near her face while she was crying uncontrollably and she did not feel he was going to allow her to leave unless she gave him oral sex.

The witness added to her statement later.

After telling Greitens, "I don't want this", the woman testified that Greitens unbound her hands.

The bipartisan group of lawmakers said in their report that they found her testimony credible.

Toward the end of his remarks, Greitens said, "In 33 days this will all come to an end because in the United States of America, you get your day in court".

The House report notes that the governor did not cooperate with its investigation, saying that "Greitens has declined to participate in this fact-finding process at this time". He also threatened to release her nude photos if she thought of going public with the story.

"Kim Gardner has received more than $200,000 from George Soros groups", Cooper said.

She also claimed that Greitens hit her at least three times. He has called the report "tabloid trash" and "gossip". The encounter took place in 2015. So I just didn't answer at all, and then he spanked me and said, Are you going to mention my name? Greitens then took off his trousers and coerced her into having oral sex, she told the committee. She said she didn't think Greitens was trying to hurt her, but rather "I felt like he was trying to claim me".

The woman testified that Greitens began coming to the hair salon where she worked in 2013 and became a regular client.

The testimony from Greitens' former hairdresser was released Wednesday by a special legislative committee investigating the Republican governor. Greitens has denied taking the image or attempting to threaten her.

The woman then describes several other encounters with Greitens over the next few months, including two where he slapped her.

Greitens, who is charged with felony invasion of privacy in connection with an admitted extramarital affair in 2015, before his election, repeated that he is innocent of any criminal wrongdoing and called the relationship in question "entirely consensual". If the Governor does not resign immediately then the House of Representatives should take the appropriate steps to restore dignity to the Office of the Governor.

Senate Majority Leader Mike Kehoe in a Thursday statement said allegations in a recent House report show Greitens has lost the "moral authority and the ability to lead".

Speaking shortly before the report was released, Greitens told reporters gathered at the Capitol that he expected it to contain "lies and falsehoods" and reaffirmed his commitment to remaining in office.

The House committee hasn't released its findings. Another dozen Republicans say they've sent a letter to the governor asking him to resign.

The Republican speaker of the Missouri House, Todd Richardson, told reporters he stood by the committee's work, saying, "This was not a witch-hunt". The state party's executive director Sam Cooper has even argued that the attorney who launched the investigation, Kim Gardner, is essentially working for George Soros.

On paper, he had a sterling record: He was a Rhodes Scholar and served as a Navy SEAL; he was awarded a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart for his service.
