JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Latest on allegations against Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens (all times local):
Rules proposed in the Missouri House would let the public watch hearings leading to the potential impeachment of Gov. Eric Greitens but would prohibit his attorneys from questioning witnesses.
The proposed rules were filed Friday evening as the House opened a historic special session to consider whether to pursue disciplinary action against Greitens.
The Republican governor faces allegations of sexual misconduct, misuse of a charity donor list for political purposes and potentially other campaign-related issues.
Greitens’ attorneys want the right to call and cross-examine witnesses. But the proposed rules filed by GOP Rep. Jay Barnes and Democratic Rep. Gina Mitten wouldn’t allow that.
The rules would require hearings of the special investigatory committee to be open to the public in most circumstances and to be live-streamed.
