Kane Decides Not to Testify or Call Any Witnesses

Kane Press ConferenceThat was fast.

According to Wallace McKelvey of the Patriot-News, Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s defense strategy consisted of a single motion to dismiss all charges against her. When that failed, Kane’s lead attorney Gerald Shargel announced that the defense rests.

No witnesses were called.

Judge Wendy Demchick-Alloy then asked Kane to questions to ensure she was of sound mind and aware of all her team’s decisions.

“As I sat here, I listened to the commonwealth’s case and I don’t believe it’s necessary for me to testify in my own defense,” Kane responded. “I agree with Mr. Shargel.”

“The commonwealth…Sorry, force of habit. The defense should rest,” she concluded.

The Judge excused the court until Monday when closing arguments will take place.

    This is the best summary of it all that I have seen. It’s truly frightening that there are people walking among us who think that Kathleen Kane is innocent.

    Of 3 the witnesses that were telling the truth today ( one changed his “story” 4 times, I was impressed that they were now telling the real story kind of, sort of, perhaps.
    Steele will be a one term DA after this stupid trial.
