DEVELOPING: Kane’s Office Searched by Ferman
Agents from the office of Montgomery County DA Risa Vetri Ferman served Kane search warrants today to search her Harrisburg office. Ferman has jurisdiction in the investigation into whether the AG leaked grand jury information.
According to Brad Bumsted of the Tribune-Review, the search applies to the 14th floor of the building, which houses the Human Resources and Information Technology departments. Therefore, this floor should hold all the office’s personnel and computer files.
This is the second time Kane’s offices have been searched this year.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Kane’s Chief of Staff Jonathan Duecker is illegally using a vehicle recovered from a drug bust. It is unclear if this warrant is related to that case, other charges against Duecker or is just part of the general investigation of the Attorney General.
Update: According to Angela Couloumbis of the Inquirer, the search concerns Ferman’s investigation into the leak of grand jury information back in June 2014. Like the previous excursion, Ferman’s team is reportedly looking for certain emails.
