Kane: “No, I Won’t Resign” (VIDEO)
Court documents confirm that a statewide grand jury recommended charges against PA’s Attorney General, but Kane remains steadfast in her assertion that she did not do anything wrong.
According to Brad Bumsted of the Tribune-Review, newly released court documents confirm the Inquirer’s report that the grand jury recommended charges of “perjury, false swearing, official oppression and obstruction.”
Despite the fact that she may be indicted, the Attorney General insists she did nothing wrong.
“No, I won’t resign,” she said during a short press conference.
Kane accused her opponents of trying to overturn her election through the courts.
“I’m not giving up,” Kane said. “But I’m not in this just for me. I’m in it for everybody and quite honestly if they can do it to me, they can do it to anyone else.”
“The truth is the truth. That’s what it is,” she responded when asked about a possible perjury charge. “There was no crime committed. There were no documents that were grand jury materials leaked.”
“I told the truth every single time,” she concluded.
Update: Marc Levy of the Associated Press is reporting that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court will hear Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s case that the special prosecutor chosen to investigate her was appointed illegally.
