Kane Questions Authority of Senate Committee Investigating Her
The Attorney General doesn’t believe the Senate committee investigating her is a valid body.
Kane finally responded to the Senate’s attempts to potentially remove her from office in a six-page letter today.
She argues that impeachment is the only legitimate way to get rid of her and that the Senate special committee lacks “jurisdiction and cause for inquiry.”
“This committee has no authority under the Pennsylvania Constitution and the longstanding precedent to remove an Attorney General by means other than impeachment, after conviction,” Kane writes.
This raises the question of whether Kane will accept the judgement of the Senate and Governor and increases the possibility of even more legal action.
