US DOJ seeks 40-year sentence for man who assaulted Nancy Pelosi’s husband

Source: Axios

“The Justice Department is asking that the man convicted of kidnapping and assaulting Paul Pelosi, the husband of Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), be sentenced to 40 years. Prosecutors say in a 20-page sentencing memo filed Friday that David DePape’s sentencing should be used to discourage others from enacting political violence. DePape, who broke into the Pelosi home, earlier told police he wanted to break Pelosi’s kneecaps to ‘show other Members of Congress there were consequences to actions.'” (05/11/24)
