PHILADELPHIA (AP) – The potential witness list in the perjury trial of Pennsylvania’s attorney general includes prosecutors, judges, journalists and former top aides to the embattled office holder.
Jurors are being questioned Monday for the expected weeklong trial of outgoing Attorney General Kathleen Kane. She is charged with leaking secret grand jury information to a reporter to embarrass enemies and then lying about it under oath.
Kane denies wrongdoing and says she’s just the latest victim of a “good old boys” network that controls state politics.
The witness list includes a Supreme Court justice and several top aides who stepped down or left Kane’s office amid her investigation of pornographic emails being sent on state servers. The witness list also includes the special prosecutor and special judge who oversaw the investigation of Kane.
