Investigators Were Looking for Kane’s Secrecy Oath
At first it was unclear what they were looking for but now there are indications that it was a document that could prove Kane violated her duties and lied under oath.
According to Angela Couloumbis and Craig R. McCoy of the Inquirer, the investigators were looking for an oath of secrecy document.
The oath would require that Kane keep secret all information from grand jury investigations since 1980, including the 2009 Mondesire investigation.
This is important because Kane testified that she has only signed oaths for grand juries that began after she was inaugurated in 2013.
“We don’t go back and sign [oaths for] every grand jury from the beginning of time,” she testified on Nov. 17th before the new grand jury investigating her. “You can’t do that.”
The oath of secrecy, however, which Kane would have signed early in her tenure, would cover all thirty-two grand jury investigations over the past 35 years.
One of the charges against Kane is perjury.
Kane’s lawyer declined to comment to the Inquirer.
“I can’t confirm that is what the search warrant was after, or that there is such a document,” her spokesman Chuck Ardo stated.
