GOOD COMPANY: Clinton-Connected Pennsylvania AG Found Guilty of 9 Felonies
A jury on Monday night found Pennsylvania’s Democratic attorney general Kathleen Kane guilty on nine felony counts stemming from her attempt to leak confidential information aimed at embarrassing Republican political rivals.
Kane, who became a rising political star thanks to support from Bill and Hillary Clinton, has been asked to resign by Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D.), and prosecutors say they are considering recommending prison time for Kane.
“I implore Attorney General Kane to do what is right: Put the commonwealth’s residents first and step down,” Wolf said.
The judge, cognizant of Kane’s history of seeking revenge against political foes, allowed Kane to remain free without bail but warned her that any attempt to retaliate against individuals that testified would result in Kane being “incarcerated immediately.”
“There is to be absolutely no retaliation against any witness in this case, either by your mouth or by your hand,” Judge Wendy Demchick-Alloy said. “If it comes to this court’s attention that has happened, you will be incarcerated immediately.” – READ MORE
