The October reported house invasion of Paul Pelosi’s residence is being investigated by a combination of news media.
The media outlets filed a court action last week requesting the publication of evidence presented at the preliminary hearing for David DePape. This comes at a time when other national scandals, such as Biden’s mishandling of confidential materials, have been diverting some of the spotlight off this unusual occurrence.
DePape, a Canadian illegal immigrant, is charged with attempted murder in connection with an incident in which he reportedly entered into Pelosi’s house in San Francisco and attacked him with a hammer.
Paul Pelosi is the spouse of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In early January, after the Democrats lost the majority in the House, Nancy’s term as speaker of the House came to an end.
DePape allegedly intended to attack the then-Speaker, as well as a number of other prominent personalities.
The New York Times has received court documents from prosecutors that explain the state’s case against DePape and reference the video and audio material that news organizations are seeking.
This evidence was presented during a preliminary hearing in December.
According to The Associated Press, It includes body camera footage from police officers who responded at the scene of the Pelosi residence, footage from Capitol Police surveillance cameras at the home, and video of a post-arrest interview with DePape.
Nevertheless, these recordings have not entered the public domain.
According to the Associated Press, attorneys for the group stated that “the public and press have standing to assert their rights of access to court records and proceedings.”
The alliance of media outlets is wide, including San Francisco-based and national news sources.
