Pelosi and her family is still a mess.
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in a statement presented on the House floor on Wednesday, revealed that she had received subpoenas from both the prosecution and defense in the case of the individual who assaulted her husband with a hammer at their San Francisco residence last year. The New York Post reported that Speaker Pelosi read the following statement into the record:
“I hereby formally inform you, in accordance with Rule Eight of the House of Representatives’ rules, that I, Nancy Pelosi, the Honorable Speaker Emerita and U.S. Representative for the 11th Congressional District of California, have been served with third-party subpoenas from both the prosecution and the defendant, compelling the production of documents in a criminal case before the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.”
“After consulting with the Office of General Counsel, I have determined that compliance with these subpoenas aligns with the House’s privileges, to the extent that it requires the production of non-privileged information. The responses to these subpoenas will be uniform.”
According to Newsmax, these subpoenas are related to the impending criminal trial of David DePape, who stands accused of assaulting Paul Pelosi with a hammer after breaking into the Pelosi residence in San Francisco on October 28, 2022. According to the report, DePape gained entry by smashing a window and subsequently confronted Paul Pelosi, demanding information about the whereabouts of his wife. After Paul Pelosi contacted the police, officers arrived at the scene and police video footage captured DePape wielding a hammer and striking Pelosi.
The attack resulted in a fractured skull for Pelosi before law enforcement managed to subdue and arrest DePape. The Mail report mentioned that DePape possessed a manifesto containing anti-government COVID-19 beliefs and a list of potential political targets he might have intended to confront.
DePape relocated from British Columbia to California two decades ago due to a romantic interest and had grappled with substance abuse issues, according to friends cited by The Mail. They expressed concerns about the “dangerous” and “disturbing” emails he had been sending, which appeared to be disconnected from reality.
David DePape has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges stemming from the attack, and his trial is scheduled to commence later this month.
