A Missouri House committee’s investigation of accusations against Governor Eric Greitens has been mostly closed to the public and press. The panel’s move to have several closed-door hearings has been criticized by some. However, the committee has brought a level of transparency by releasing full transcripts of witness testimony during the hearings.
Some of the key takeaways from the several hundred pages of transcripts:
