Grand jury finds enough to charge Pennsylvania A.G.

Court documents released Wednesday show a Pennsylvania grand jury concluded there are reasonable grounds to charge the state’s top prosecutor with perjury, false swearing, official oppression and obstruction after an investigation into leaks of secret investigative materials. The records made public by the state Supreme Court say the grand jury’s Dec. 18 presentment regarding Attorney General Kathleen Kane has been sent to the district attorney in Montgomery County to decide whether to file charges. The district attorney, Risa Ferman, hasn’t spoken publicly about the matter and didn’t comment Wednesday. Kane maintained her innocence on Wednesday, saying the special prosecutor found nothing illegal and instead had to “make things up.”
