  • Committee Report Reveals Graphic Allegations Against Missouri Governor

But reaction from fellow Republicans indicates Greitens may have a more hard time - in part, because Trump's moral shortcomings were known to voters before his election, whereas Greitens' had cultivated a campaign persona of an all-American hero.

Humphreys' call for Greitens to step down signals the first public disavowal from a prominent top individual donor to Greitens' campaign.

However, a number of leading State officials called for Greitens to resign, including Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway.

Greitens has said he'll continue to serve and that allegations of violence or sexual assault are false. The woman said that she began crying and asking Greitens to stop. Jamilah Nasheed of St. Louis first floated the idea of stopping future votes.

"He clearly used his power to manipulate her", said Democratic Floor Leader Gail Beatty, according to CNN.

The scandal now enveloping the governor has marked a sharp fall for Greitens, a former Navy SEAL who was viewed as a rising national star in the Republican Party.

In a press conference an hour before the report's release, Greitens was defiant against calls for his resignation and said the report signed by five Republicans and two Democrats would include "lies and falsehoods".

Richard on Thursday stopped short of calling on Greitens to resign.

Greitens had previously admitted to engaging in a 2015 extramarital affair with his hair stylist, but the woman leveled several accusations of abuse against him during the investigation, including coerced oral sex, non-consensual spanking, kissing, and touching. He began consoling her, but also took his penis out.

"The people of Missouri see through this, and they know far better than to trust one-sided tabloid trash gossip that was produced in a secret report", he said.

Greitens has denied threatening to blackmail her. But a Republican majority authorized the House committee's investigation, which was also led by a Republican.

After Grietens helped her down, she said she told him "I'm leaving" and headed for the stairs.

"Based on the shocking and unsettling events detailed in this report, we have no faith in Eric Greitens' ability to effectively govern", Walsh said.

The committee's report does not recommend legislators take actions against Greitens, though the committee will continue its work through the end of the session.

"So this guy literally just wants me for this, and this is all he wants, and then he'll let me - because at this point, too, I also know I have to be at work, and he's not going to let me leave", she said, describing her thoughts to the committee.

The woman said Greitens started kissing her body, tore open her t-shirt and pulled down her trousers - also without her consent.

Scott said it was time to "take this same mission to D.C.", calling the nation's capital "dysfunctional". "It's dysfunctional. Scott can put his own money into the campaign, but those close to him say he will rely most heavily on funding from donors.

Doyle says sexual violence should not be tolerated and the "era of impunity is over". The disturbing allegations were included in a 25-page report released on Wednesday by a special committee of the Missouri House of Representatives. Kehoe and Greitens are both Republicans.

"T$3 hen I hear him kind of, like, step back - take a step back and I hear - I can hear like a, like a cell phone - like a picture, and I can see a flash through the blindfold", she testified, according to the report. They also want a bench trial to start in early April - days before the state legislators' special committee April 9 deadline for a report on the charge.

The report did not make any recommendations, but the committee will eventually be responsible for deciding whether to file articles of impeachment against Greitens. She didn't give consent to be disrobed or kissed, the report said. "I am disgusted, disheartened, and I believe Governor Greitens is unfit to lead our state", Rep. Ann Wagner, who is one of two GOP congresswomen from Missouri, wrote on Twitter.

The report describes in lurid detail a tumultuous, months-long affair flanked by instances of bodily abuse, covetous excruciating and excruciating behavior by Greitens.

The woman tried to leave, but says Greitens grabbed her and pulled her down. The report says witness 4's testimony about the contents of her conversation with the woman were consistent with key portions of the woman's testimony before the committee.

"For the good of the state, Eric Greitens must immediately resign". He repeatedly called it a "political witch hunt", mimicking President Donald Trump's complaints about the ongoing investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 campaign.

The report could set the stage for impeachment proceedings against the embattled Republican governor, who already faces criminal invasion of privacy charges in addition to multiple ongoing probes.
