    The Guardian ^ | 30 May 2017 14:04 EDT | Shaun Walker
    [snip]The murky case has so far thrown up far more questions than answers, but one thing is clear: US authorities are determined to extradite the 29-year-old Muscovite, who drove a Lamborghini and socialised with the children of top Russian officials, and Moscow is determined to get him back, filing its own extradition request. [snip] The affidavit relates solely to the hacking of LinkedIn, Dropbox and Formspring in 2012, and does not mention any election hacking. However, Nikulin wrote in a letter from prison that Miller had interrogated him in Prague on 7 February and raised the election hacking. Excerpts of...

    Former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane will spend 10 to 23 months in a county prison for crimes she committed in pursuit of retribution against a political foe, a judge decided Monday. Kane pleaded with a judge to spare her teenage sons the pain of being separated from their mother when she spoke Monday during her sentencing in Montgomery County Court. Kane, convicted in August of two felony counts of perjury and less serious charges of false swearing, obstruction, official oppression and conspiracy, apologized for leaking grand jury secrets in a plot to discredit a foe whom she believed was...

    Islamic charities based in Northern Virginia and sponsored by the government of Saudi Arabia invested millions of dollars in a company suspected of funding al Qaeda and the Islamic Resistance Movement, the government alleged for the first time yesterday. An affidavit made public in federal court in Virginia contends that the Muslim charities gave $3.7 million to BMI Inc., a private Islamic investment company in New Jersey that may have passed the money to terrorist groups. The money was part of a $10 million endowment from unnamed donors in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia, according to the affidavit filed by David Kane...
  • Pennsylvania attorney general resigns a day after conviction

    08/16/2016 8:37:32 PM PDT · by Red Badger · 47 replies
    Pennsylvania's first elected female attorney general announced her resignation Tuesday, a day after being convicted of abusing the powers of the state's top law enforcement office to smear a rival and lying under oath to cover it up. Democrat Kathleen Kane's exit completes a spectacular fall for the former county prosecutor who soared to victory four years ago as an outsider promising to break up an "old-boys' network" in state government. She squandered her early popularity, feuded with rivals and aides and ultimately was undone by what prosecutors portrayed as a personal vendetta against her critics and perceived enemies.

    Pennsylvania's attorney general showed little emotion Monday night as she was convicted of leaking grand jury secrets and lying about it under oath. In calling her a flight risk, the judge ordered Kathleen Kane, 50, to surrender her passport and threatened to jail her if she retaliated against the once-trusted aides who testified against her.SnipKane, a first-term Democrat who had never held elected office, enjoyed a brief honeymoon period in 2013 before her agency descended into chaos as she feuded with officials inside and outside of the department.

    A prosecutor filed criminal charges on Thursday against Pennsylvania’s attorney general, Kathleen G. Kane, in a convoluted tale of political maneuvering and retribution that threatens the career of an official who, until recently, was seen as one of her state’s rising stars. Ms. Kane, a Democrat in her first term, has been accused of illegally giving grand jury documents to a newspaper in order to embarrass a critic, and then trying to cover up her actions with false testimony to a different grand jury. The Montgomery County district attorney, Risa V. Ferman, charged the attorney general with counts that include...

    HARRISBURG — Attorney General Kathleen Kane's chief of staff resigned on Friday, four months into the job. Blake Rutherford, who took the position in December, follows others who left key positions under the embattled state prosecutor. Four aides quit last year as a grand jury investigated Kane for allegedly leaking secret grand jury information. She has replaced five spokespeople since 2013, including one who quit in February. Rutherford surprised staffers by emailing a notice that he had resigned. “Today is my last day at OAG. While I will miss working alongside each of you, I am excited about what this...

    Pennsylvania's self-destructing attorney general, Kathleen Kane, should resign. This week alone, The Inquirer has reported that she disrupted a second political corruption case, while the Supreme Court upheld a probe into her dissemination of grand jury information that could yield criminal charges. It's now clear that since her early days in office, Kane's attempts to protect legitimate law enforcement targets and smear rivals have been at odds with the public interest.

    --SNIP-- Kane's office declined to comment. Lanny Davis, her outside lawyer and spokesman, later said that she signed and sent paperwork to Saylor for a Norristown grand jury. The Norristown grand jury recommended criminally charging Kane with perjury, obstruction of justice, official oppression and criminal contempt for allegedly leaking grand jury information to a Philadelphia newspaper. The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to nullify the grand jury's report. Its evidence remains sealed.

    HARRISBURG — Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane is recuperating from a mild concussion after an early- morning car accident last week, her office said Friday. The accident occurred in a town outside Scranton, while Kane was being driven by her security detail to "morning appointments," said spokeswoman Renee Martin. "She's on the mend," said Martin. Martin said the agent who was driving dropped his iPad on the floor of Kane's state-issued Chevy Tahoe, reached down to grab it and accidentally hit a parked car on a residential street in the town of Dunmore. Kane was not wearing a seatbelt, said...

    When it comes to partisanship no one beats Pennsylvania State Attorney General Kathleen “Double Standard” Kane. From the very start of her tenure she has been a reliable “fixer” for crooked Democrats – especially those accused of voter fraud. Kane has consistently used her office to head off and stop investigations of crooked Democrats and attack Republicans as if she was the Democrat State Party Chairwoman instead of a woman elected to be the protector of rights for all Pennsylvanians. Last March when she ran out of procedural moves to stop an investigation of Black Democrats in Philadelphia on charges...

    This morning, the Pennsylvania House State Government Committee held a hearing on the case of the Democrats caught accepting bribes in exchange for voting against voter ID in the state. The case against the Democrats is well-documented, yet Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane, a Democrat, scuttled it shortly after she took office. Kane also accused the career investigators who built the case of racism. That charge doesn’t stand up to any level of scrutiny. The investigation targeted Republicans and Democrats, male and female, black and white. As it so happens, only Democrats chose to accept the bribes, and those members...

    Our own Christian Adams appeared on Fox & Friends today to explain the curious case of the scuttled bribery investigation in Pennsylvania. A bribery sting caught four Democrats accepting bribes for votes in the PA legislature; the Democratic Attorney General Kathleen Kane inherited the scandal investigation when she took office, and promptly scuttled it . She has even called the investigation “racist,” because while the investigation targeted Republicans and Democrats, white and black, only four black Democrats actually accepted the bribes. Adams lays out the facts. It’s a must-watch. Video: 3:24 minutes Philly Sting Shut Down - Democrats Allegedly Took...
