Nancy Pelosi receives subpoena in California criminal case

 November 3, 2023

Nancy Pelosi (Ca.) was served a subpoena for a California criminal case, as speculation flies that she will testify against the man who assaulted her husband during a break-in.

The trial of David DePape, 42, is coming up soon on November 13. DePape is the man who broke into the Pelosi home last October and attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer.

Pelosi gets subpoena

DePape is facing parallel state and federal cases. The subpoena for Pelosi is in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

The House clerk read the subpoena aloud to Pelosi's colleagues.

“This is to notify you formally pursuant to Rule Eight of the rules of the House of Representatives, that I, the Honorable Nancy Pelosi, Speaker Emerita, and US Representative for the 11th Congressional District of California, have been served with third-party subpoenas from the prosecution and the defendant to produce documents in a criminal case and United States District Court for the Northern District of California,” the Clerk read.

“After consultation with the Office of General Counsel, I have determined that compliance with the subpoenas is consistent with the privileges of the House to the extent it requires the production of non-privileged information. The responses to the subpoenas will be identical,” Pelosi’s statement said.

Trial ahead

Pelosi was in Washington D.C. when her husband was attacked. DePape broke in through glass doors at the back of the house. Paul Pelosi, who was home alone, was sleeping when DePape woke him up and asked for "Nancy."

When Pelosi said his wife was not home, DePape said he would wait. Pelosi retreated to a bathroom where he dialed 911.

Police arrived to find DePape and Pelosi in the entranceway, struggling over a hammer. DePape struck Pelosi with the hammer, knocking him unconscious and fracturing his skull.

DePape - who faces charges for kidnapping and assault - told police he planned to kidnap Nancy Pelosi and "break her kneecaps." He said he wanted to fight "tyranny" and compared himself to the Founding Fathers.

After the police bodycam video was released, DePape called into a local news station with a chilling message: "You're welcome."

Months before the break-in, Paul Pelosi pled guilty to driving drunk. It is expected that Pelosi will testify when DePape's trial gets underway.
