FBI Investigating Kane for Haiti Trip
On Monday, the Legal Intelligencer revealed that Attorney General Kathleen Kane is being investigated by the FBI.
Today, this was confirmed in a new report from Angela Couloumbis and Craig R. McCoy of the Inquirer.
Couloumbis and McCoy uncovered that the FBI is focusing on two specific incidents surrounding the AG.
The second incident the bureau is looking into is a trip Kane and four aides took to Haiti in April 2014.
Kane’s spokesman Chuck Ardo said that Kane went there on her own dime and that everyone paid their own expenses.
Ardo told Couloumbis and McCoy the identity of her four fellow travelers: “David Peifer, a top commander of the office’s agents; Kane’s twin sister, Ellen Granahan, a deputy state attorney general who heads a unit that pursues child predators; Dan Block, a supervisory special agent; and Justin Leri, a special agent who works in the child predator unit.”
The Attorney General said that her trip was inspired by a video that her youngest son showed about the 2010 earthquake. She said that she didn’t take her son because she was worried about his safety.
