On Friday night after the close of the regular session and after short end of session majority and minority press conferences the special session addressing the possible impeachment of Governor Eric Greitens (r) was called to order.

The spaces between the pillar in the side galleries were crammed with media tripods and cameras. The Press Gallery had a full contingent.

Waiting for the gavel.

The opening of the session was like the opening of any other session – the gavel, a prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance, and the start of business.

Speaker Todd Richardson (R) calls the special session to order.

After the formalities the session was adjourned – the body of the House will return once the House Special Investigative Committee on Oversight has recommendation(s).

The Clerk reads…

It’s a start.
