Nancy Pelosi served with subpoena in criminal case

Last Wednesday, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), former Speaker of the House, received a subpoena in a Northern California criminal case. By coincidence, the man whom San Francisco police caught attacking her husband last year, goes to trial next month. But whether this is the case at issue in the subpoena, remains unclear at time of posting.

Nancy Pelosi gets a summons

Breitbart reported on the summons on Thursday (November 2). As is standard procedure, the House Clerk formally read out a statement by Nancy Pelosi concerning the subpoena and summons:

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.

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.

Pelosi’s staff declined to comment on the subpoena or the case at hand.

Note that this is a federal case. In fact, Daniel DePape, who stands accused of assaulting Paul Pelosi, Nancy’s husband, in their home, is facing federal charges. Those charges allege assault on an immediate family member of a federal official, and attempted kidnapping of that official. This is in addition to a charge of attempted murder in California’s courts. United States v. DePape, 3:22-cr-00426-JSC, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Francisco Division.

The Daily Mail cited several anonymous sources saying the subpoena does indeed relate to the trial of DePape. But no other media outlet has yet indulged in any such speculation along this line.


On or about October 28, 2022, according to a federal indictment, David DePape entered the Pelosi home. Apparently he woke Paul Pelosi and asked where Nancy Pelosi was. Paul Pelosi told the intruder his wife was not in the home and would not return for a few days. DePape said he would wait. His purpose was to kidnap Nancy Pelosi and hold her to induce another, unidentified target to expose himself.

David DePape has pleaded Not Guilty to all charges. The incident was caught on camera – which no one was monitoring at the time.

Sketchy details

The public details in the case of U.S. v. DePape have been sketchy from the beginning. All that the former speaker has ever said in public was that she expected her husband to recover – eventually. Video footage of the attack, released in January, shows DePape landing several vicious blows on Mr. Pelosi with a hammer – in front of San Francisco Police officer.
