Missouri's House Special Investigative Committee on Oversight released its findings on Wednesday regarding allegations against Republican Governor Eric Greitens, who was indicted by a St. Louis grand jury for invasion of privacy in February.

The details: Greitens was accused of taking photos of a woman, without her consent — while she had her hands tied and was blindfolded. He reportedly threatened to release them if she spoke publicly about their extramarital relationship. The graphic testimony from the woman details an encounter the two had in the basement of his home, during which he took the photo of her and allegedly pressured her into oral sex.

  • After taking the photo, the woman said Greitens told her: "You're not going to mention my name...If you do, I'm going to take these pictures, and I'm going to put them everywhere I can."
  • Later in the encounter, she said she was "uncontrollably crying" after attempting to leave the basement and being stopped by Greitens. He then pressured her into oral sex; she testified that she "didn't want to do it," but "felt as though that would allow me to leave."

According to CBS, Greitens said in a statement before the report was released that he refused to resign, and referred to the allegations as a "political witch hunt."

Maximum pressure campaign escalates with Fakhrizadeh killing

The assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, the architect of Iran’s military nuclear program, is a new height in the maximum pressure campaign led by the Trump administration and the Netanyahu government against Iran.

Why it matters: It exceeds the capture of the Iranian nuclear archives by the Mossad, and the sabotage in the advanced centrifuge facility in Natanz.
