The world is exploding around Missouri Governor Eric Greitens.

The woman testified to the committee that she had several additional sexual encounters with Greitens, including one in June 2015 when "he slapped me across my face" after she acknowledged having slept with her husband.

A Missouri House committee released a report Wednesday regarding allegations of sexual assault against Gov. Eric Greitens (R), saying in the report that they believe the woman who made the allegations is credible. In her testimony, the woman told a graphic story in which Greitens invited her to his home in 2015 while his wife was away, tied her up in the basement, and ripped open her clothes, all without her consent. "I knew he had volunteered at the Mother Theresa House", she testified.

When she remained silent, the lady talked about Greitens "spanked me and talked about, 'Are you going to say my title?' And I discussed, I merely gritted by my tooth, and I discussed, 'No.' And he's like, 'Good, now that's woman'".

Greitens' accuser said that the photographs were used to blackmail her into silence.

She described another incident to the committee during which she said he smacked her, grabbed her and shoved her to the ground. According to the woman, Greitens held her down in a "bear hug", fondling her while she wept "uncontrollably", before pulling out his penis and putting it near her face.

Shortly sooner than the report was launched, Greitens gave a fast assertion to reporters describing the investigation as "a political witch hunt... exactly like what's occurring with the witch hunts in Washington, D.C".

Greitens' attorneys had tried to delay the report's release until after the felony trial begins on May 14. Greitens will go on trial next month on a felony invasion of privacy charge for threatening to release a compromising photo of his mistress.

"The House Investigative Committee's Report contains shocking, substantial, and corroborated evidence of wrongdoing by Governor Greitens". She testified that she felt that she had to perform oral sex in order to escape the basement.

Greitens' supporters have called the criminal case a political witch hunt. He then asked if she had exercised and had her change into a white T-shirt with a slit on the top and pajama trousers.

"I felt as though that would allow me to leave", the woman's testimony reads. The governor previously denied that he had ever blackmailed or threatened the woman.

Greitens has called the allegations "tabloid trash".

"I wanted to think that he actually really liked me and wanted to have a relationship with me of sorts", she went on, adding that, at the time, she was also going through a painful separation with her husband.

He also is under investigation by the state's attorney general into the activities of a veterans charity he founded.
