NORRISTOWN, PA (WPMT) According to a published report, a statewide grand jury investigating Attorney General Kathleen Kane is recommending criminal charges be filed against her.  The grand jury had been probing whether Kane leaked secret information to a newspaper.

Kane, a Democrat, was called to testify before the grand jury late last year.

UPDATE: Kane’s attorney, Lanny Davis, released the following statement:

“I cannot confirm the posted report in the Philadelphia Inquirer of any presentment issued by the Grand Jury regarding Attorney General Kathleen Kane.  If such is the case, then it is my understanding that it is up to the Montgomery County District Attorney to make a judgment as to whether to proceed against the Attorney General.  The Attorney General has done nothing wrong or illegal and, to my knowledge, there is no credible evidence that she has.   She told the truth to the Grand Jury at all times.  I hope the District Attorney will reach same conclusion.

“This anonymous leak to the Inquirer about this alleged presentment could be,  in and of itself, a possible violation of the state Grand Jury Secrecy Act.  I wonder why the supervising judge who appointed the special prosecutor to investigate the Attorney General hasn’t initiated a grand jury investigation of this leak or any of the other previous leaks from this same Grand Jury process.”
