Ex husband’s attorney gets heated in appearance before House committee

Missouri House Special Investigative Committee on Oversight

(MissouriNet) – A special House committee has heard testimony from an attorney involved in allegations that have led to the possible impeachment of Governor Eric Greitens. Al Watkins represents the ex-husband of the woman who’s accused Greitens of sexual coercion and physical abuse.

During a heated exchange, Watkins passionately defended the ex-husband, saying he held back the release of a recording where his former wife detailed Greitens alleged misconduct.



The committee questioned Watkins for roughly three hours over his client and payments he received totaling $120,000 from a newspaper publisher.
