JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The special committee investigating Missouri Governor Eric Greitens is expected to release a report on their findings Wednesday, according to a statement from committee chairman Jay Barnes.

Sources in the Capitol say they're expecting the report to be made public on Wednesday. The committee met on Monday, again in a closed-door session.

Most lawmakers are in the dark about what will be in the report.

Democratic House Minority Leader Representative Gail McCann Beatty of Kansas City said, "I said from the very beginning we're putting a lot of faith in Representative Barnes. So I hope we're going to get what the public deserves and that is a truthful picture of what really happened."

Greitens was indicted on a charge of invasion of privacy in January. He's accused of taking an unauthorized photo of a woman with whom he was having an affair, during a sexual encounter in the basement of his St. Louis home in March 2015 before he was elected.

 The findings of the investigation could lay the groundwork for an effort to impeach the governor. But lawmakers told News 4 they won't know what the next step will be until they get the facts about what happened.

"One of the things that I've always claimed is that I would wait to see all of the facts before a weigh in and make much of a decision," said Republican Senator Dave Schatz of Sullivan.

"I suspect we'll be fighting over what response is going to be," says State Representative Peter Merideth of St. Louis.
