Nothing to see here. She’s a Democrat.
NORRISTOWN, Pa. – Jurors could soon start deliberating in the perjury and obstruction trial of Pennsylvania’s attorney general.
Kathleen Kane has decided not to testify or call any defense witnesses.
The first-term Democrat is accused of leaking secret grand jury files to a newspaper to embarrass a rival prosecutor and lying about it under oath.
Her former campaign manager says he conspired with her on a cover story to frame her chief deputy.
The consultant, Josh Morrow, admits lying to the grand jury and received immunity for his testimony last week.
Witnesses say Kane was incensed about a news story that questioned her decision to drop a statehouse bribery probe. They say she blamed prosecutor Frank Fina and sought revenge by leaking a story about him.
Closing arguments are set for Monday.
