House special committee still working after releasing report

Republican Rep. Jay Barnes addresses reporters Monday, Feb. 26, 2018 during a press conference in the House Lounge of the Missouri Capitol.

State Rep. Jay Barnes, chairman of the House Special Investigative Committee on Oversight, had no comment Tuesday about Attorney General Josh Hawley's statements Gov. Eric Greitens could be charged with violating state laws.

Hawley's comments involved Greitens' apparent use of donor and email lists from The Mission Continues, the charity the governor helped found in 2007.

Included in last week's release of transcripts from the committee's closed hearings during March and early April was an entry showing at least one of its meetings involved The Mission Continues.

And the committee two weeks ago voted to continue its work through the end of the legislative session May 18.

The committee met for nearly four hours Tuesday morning and, when reporters asked Barnes if the committee now was focused on the governor and his former charity, the Jefferson City Republican said: "We're looking at a lot of things."

The committee already has scheduled more meetings for noon today and 8 a.m. Thursday.
