ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Look for more developments in the Gov. Eric Greitens legal case later today.

It's been announced that the House Special Investigative Committee on Oversight looking into the allegations against Greitens will release a new report on the governor's use of a charitable donor list for fundraising during his campaign.

The committee will release its second report at 3 p.m. today on the official website of the Missouri House of Representatives at House.mo.gov.

Meanwhile, Missouri House Democrats are demanding that the Republican leadership launch immediate impeachment proceedings against Greitens, accusing the GOP of stalling.

A letter Tuesday to House Speaker Todd Richardson signed by 16 Democrats requests immediate action to remove Greitens from office.

The Republican governor goes on trial May 14 on an invasion of privacy charge in St. Louis.

He is accused of taking a compromising and unauthorized photo of a woman with whom he had an affair in 2015.

Calls for impeachment escalated last month after a House committee released testimony in which the woman accused Greitens of coercing her into sex acts and slapping and spanking her.
