JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A lawyer says he gave a recording of a woman detailing an extramarital affair with Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens to the FBI.

Attorney Al Watkins on Thursday told a Missouri House legislative committee investigating Greitens that he provided the recording to authorities in January or February 2017.

A spokeswoman for the FBI declined to say if Greitens is under investigation.

Watkins represents the ex-husband of the woman Greitens said he had an affair with in 2015, before his election. The ex-husband secretly recorded a conversation with his then-wife, during which she described a sexual encounter with Greitens.

Greitens was indicted for alleged felony invasion of privacy related to that encounter. The woman said Greitens took an at least partially nude photo of her and threatened to release it if she spoke about their encounter. The St. Louis prosecutor dropped the case last week, although she referred it to a special prosecutor for consideration.
