Nancy Pelosi subpoenaed in home invasion case: report
The incident saw David DePape allegedly storm the home, wherein he found Paul Pelosi. A more than 20-year visa overstay from Canada, he faces a litany of charges, including attempted murder.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Wednesday disclosed Wednesday that she had received a subpoena in California criminal case, reportedly related to a 2022 home invasion that saw her husband Paul hospitalized.
The incident saw David DePape allegedly storm the San Francisco home, wherein he found Paul Pelosi. A more than 20-year visa overstay from Canada, he faces a litany of charges, including attempted murder. Pelosi's statement did not identify the case, though a source told Fox News that the subpoena pertained to DePape's trial set for later in the month.
"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 U.S. 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 House clerk read to Congress.
"After consultation with the Office of General Counsel, I have determined that compliance with the subpoenas is consistent with the privileges and of the House to the extent it requires production of non-privileged information. The responses to the subpoenas will be identical," the clerk continued.
It is standard for the House clerk to read a statement from the lawmaker upon their receipt of a subpoena, be the matter a civil or criminal case.
