Yesterday the Missouri House Special Investigative Committee on Oversight issued a supplementary report to their first report in the investigation of Missouri Governor Eric Greitens (r) in an effort to counter the public relations spin on the governor’s behalf:

Supplement to Committee Report 1
This report contains content of a sensitive and sexual nature. The House Special Investigative Committee on Oversight has kept descriptions of an adult nature and coarse language in order to provide an unfiltered record of witness testimony. In some cases, the identities of witnesses and sensitive information have been redacted from the record to protect privacy.

The supplementary report was signed by all seven members of the committee, five Republican and two Democrats.

From the supplementary report [pdf]:

1. On Thursday, April 12, 2018, Greitens posted a public statement to Facebook in which he claimed that video of an interview taken by the Circuit Attorney’s office “undermined the narrative” and “directly contradicted allegations in the House report.” Specifically, Greitens claimed Witness 1 “never once mentions any coercion” in the videotaped interview.1 However, Witness 1 described the same facts regarding the morning of March 21, 2015 in her interview with the Circuit Attorney’s office as she did with this Committee. For example, compare: [side by side comparisons]

Circuit Attorney Testimony

And I was like, “I’m leaving and went to go upstairs, and he took me in his arms and was like, no, no … you can’t leave like this. You can’t leave. Come here. And lays me down on the ground where I’m laying on his, like, basement floor in the fetal position.2

I’m crying, like, hysterically at this point. And he was like, shush, it’s okay. It’s okay, It’s okay.4

[H]e proceeds to undo his pants and take his [penis] out of his underwear or whatever. And like, put it near my face.6

I gave him a blow job at this point.8

I just felt like, I’m going to do this and he’ll be satisfied that he had his little whore, and I’m going to leave and I’ll never see him again, was what was going through my mind at this point…”10

“And at this point, just really coaxing me like a wounded little animal on the ground[.]”12

[T]hen he says, I’m going to put a blindfold on you. He puts the blindfold on me. And at this point there’s, like, really no talking. I really was standing there, like, I have no clue what the hell is going on. I’m probably just as much turned on as I am fearful as I am curious. You know, I don’t even know. We hadn’t kissed or anything.15

Committee Testimony

I was like, “No, I’m leaving, I’m leaving.” And I start walking out – or going to go up the stairs, and he grabs me and like – like in a bear hug and was like, “Shh, shh, it’s okay, calm down, calm down, and like lays me down on this ground in the basement.3

I was laying next to him just crying, like uncontrollably crying. And he was like, Shh, shh, it’s okay, it’s okay.5

He starts undoing his pants, and he takes his penis out and put it, like near where my face is.7

So I gave him oral sex at this point.9

I’m like – 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 back at work, and he’s not going to let me leave, because he’s obviously still horny.11

“Coerced, maybe. I felt as though that would allow me to leave.”13 And “It’s a hard question [on consent] because I did it – it felt like consent, but no, I didn’t want to do it.”14

[H]e said, Follow me downstairs, I’m going to show you how to do a proper pull-up. So I did what he said. And at this point, I was intrigued, definitely, because I thought for sure he really has feelings for me.16

I honestly was, like, in shock, because I was – I was intrigued, but I’m also – how – I’m not even talking to him. I’m not – we’re not doing anything I want to do right now, but I’m intrigued enough and I’m letting him and I trust him – I don’t know. No, I’m not talking at all at this point.17


2. Witness 1 testified to additional feelings in her Circuit Attorney interview, stating that, while performing oral sex on the morning of March 21, 2015 that she was thinking “the whole time – at this point, I hate him in my mind. I think he’s disgusting. I hate him. I can’t believe I’m down here.”18 She further stated, “I just felt super degraded, really disgusting.”19


3. In his Thursday, April 12 statement, Greitens further noted that Witness 1 told the Circuit Attorney that she did not tell her friends about the slap until after a false report about the location of such an incident had been made in the media.20 However, the testimony to the Committee corroborates that Witness 1 did not tell her friends about the slap until later.


5. The Committee does not find anything in the Circuit Attorney interview that causes it to change its statement regarding Witness 1’s credibility.

6. Greitens’ claims about the content of the Circuit Attorney interview mischaracterize the actual testimony received and reviewed by this Committee.


9. Greitens further stated, “Soon after this story broke, for example, the people who are attacking me now falsely claim that I slapped a woman while my wife was giving birth. It was absolutely untrue and slanderous and incredibly hurtful. It has also been 100 percent disproven, because it was impossible.”29 However, Witness 1 never claimed to the Committee or to anyone else of which we are aware that he slapped her at such time. Instead, she testified that Greitens slapped her in an upstairs bedroom while his wife was out-of-town.30


14. This Committee’s charge is to determine the truth. Having claimed that the deposition testimony is helpful to Greitens, it is incumbent upon his counsel to comply with the Committee’s duly-issued subpoena and to expeditiously provide it with the entire deposition transcript.

It’s the same story.

Go. Read the whole thing.
