In California, a San Francisco police detective said Wednesday the man charged with assaulting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband also planned to target California Governor Gavin Newsom, Hunter Biden and actor Tom Hanks. The testimony came during the trial of David DePape, who’s accused of breaking into Pelosi’s home and assaulting Paul Pelosi with a hammer. He faces up to 30 years in prison on a federal assault charge and up to 20 additional years for attempted kidnapping. On Wednesday, prosecutors played video of the assault on Paul Pelosi, along with a 911 call he made and police body-camera footage. This is San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins.
Brooke Jenkins: “This sends a strong message. This case, in general, and just the facts of what happened send a clear message to the country that things have gone too far and that we must tone down our rhetoric, especially as political leaders.”
