The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has begun to move toward impeachment proceedings against Attorney General Kathleen Kane. The House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution that would authorize the committee to investigate Kane’s ­conduct in office.

The House joins the state Senate in pursuing the possibility of Kane’s removal. A special Senate committee is expected to issue a report Wednesday on its investigation into whether Kane can carry out the duties of her office with a suspended law license. Kane is also facing perjury and other criminal charges, as well as five civil suits alleging defamation, retaliation and other counts.
