HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Pennsylvania’s chief justice says he has “absolutely no view” on whether the state’s attorney general should resign from office.
Chief Justice Thomas Saylor told the Pennsylvania Press Club on Monday that he views the decision as “purely a personal matter” for Kathleen Kane.
The Supreme Court a week ago voted unanimously to temporarily suspend Kane’s license to practice law.
Kane faces criminal allegations she leaked secret grand jury information to a newspaper and then lied to cover it up.
Saylor says the high court doesn’t have the ability to remove Kane or any other high-level government official.
