The man accused of attacking Nancy Pelosi's husbandwas caught up in conspi racies, defense say

When he stormed into former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco home last year, the man accused of using a hammer to smash her husband became entangled in a web of conspiracy theories.

his defense attorney said as his trial opened Thursday.

Shortly before the midterm elections of last year, in October of 2022, an attack on Paul Pelosi, who was eighty-two years old, shocked the political world.

Defense attorney Jodi Linker said Thursday she won't dispute that her client David DePape attacked Paul Pelosi, an encounter caught on police body camera video

Instead, she will argue that he believed “with every ounce of his being" that he was taking action to stop government corruption and the abuse of children by politicians and actors.

This is not a ‘whodunit.’ But what the government fails to acknowledge is the ‘whydunit,' and the why matters in this case,” she said.
