(Harrisburg) -- The Montgomery County district attorney is weighing a possible criminal case against state Attorney General Kathleen Kane.

Speaking on WITF's Smart Talk, District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman declinined to comment on where things stand in the investigation.

"I've always said, as in any investigation, there's no timetable," she said. "We'll conduct our investigation and make our decisions at the conclusion."

A grand jury has recommended perjury and other serious charges against Kane. Ferman will decide whether or not to pursue that case.

Kane has been at the center of several missteps since taking office and grand jury accusations of criminal misconduct related to the investigation of a leak from her office.
