Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane departs after a hearing Thursday, Nov. 5, 2015, at the Pennsylvania Judicial Center in Harrisburg, Pa.

(Harrisburg) --State Attorney General Kathleen Kane says the House Judiciary Committee should be looking into the state's judicial system, which she says is broken, rather than starting a process that could result in her impeachment.

Kane has put out a statement saying she wonders, as a taxpayer, why Republicans are spending time and money in an effort to remove her.

She says she hopes "political fury'' doesn't trump what she calls "a fair and impartial justice system'' in Pennsylvania.

House Judiciary Committee members voted unanimously yesterday to launch an investigation with subpoena power into whether Kane should be removed for "misbehavior in office.''

A state Senate report is expected today on Kane's possible removal.
