Lawyer: Republican men with grudges railroading Kathleen Kane

    A lawyer for Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane says that Republican men with political grudges are out to “railroad” and destroy the first-term Democrat.

    Washington crisis counselor Lanny Davis is holding a press conference Saturday to discuss an investigation that could end with Kane facing criminal charges over a grand jury leak.

    Davis vows that Kane will be vindicated, whether or not she is charged.

    The Philadelphia Inquirer has cited anonymous source in saying that a special grand jury this week recommended that Kane be charged over the 2013 leak.

    Davis says Kane is being railroaded by “men with grudges” linked to her review of the Jerry Sandusky child-abuse investigation and pornography found on state computers.

    Davis says Kane never knowingly disclosed any secret grand jury material.
