SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Missouri lawmakers agreed to a special session to discuss possible consequences related to the investigation into Gov. Eric Greitens. He's facing two felony charges. 

The Missouri Speaker of the House made the announcement on Thursday. 

Greitens was charged with felony invasion of privacy after he allegedly took a partially nude photo of a woman he was having an affair with without her consent. The governor was then charged with felony computer-tampering. He allegedly used donor data from his former veterans charity for his gubernatorial campaign. 

The special session was called after more than three-quarters of both chambers signed a petition. It will start May 18 and last 30 days.
