On Wednesday, Nancy Pelosi, the former House Speaker and representative from California, notified the House of Representatives that she had received a subpoena. The subpoena requires her to provide certain documents in relation to a criminal case taking place in California.

When a member of the House of Representatives is issued a subpoena in connection with a civil or criminal matter, it is customary for the House Clerk to read the statement made by Speaker Nancy Pelosi regarding the subpoena.

In accordance with Rule Eight of the rules of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, the Honorable Speaker Emerita and U.S. Representative for California's 11th Congressional District, has received formal notification. She has been served with third-party subpoenas from both the prosecution and the defendant. These subpoenas require her to produce certain documents in relation to a criminal case pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. Pelosi's statement conveyed this information. 

After seeking advice from the Office of General Counsel, it has been concluded that adhering to the subpoenas aligns with the privileges and rights of the House, as long as it pertains to the submission of non-privileged information. According to the statement, it was mentioned that the responses to the subpoenas will be exactly the same.

The office of Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, chose not to provide a comment regarding a legal matter that is currently in progress. However, a source who is knowledgeable about the situation informed Fox News Digital that the subpoena is connected to the forthcoming trial of the individual accused of assaulting Paul Pelosi during a violent home invasion that occurred last year.

David DePape, the individual accused of attacking him, is scheduled to face trial later this month.
