Pelosi’s Attacker Gets a Second Chance Due to Judge’s ‘Clear Error’

( – Paul Pelosi’s attacker, David DePape, will have a new sentencing hearing after the judge admitted she failed to abide by a federal law that requires defendants be offered the opportunity to address the court before the sentence is handed down. DePape was sentenced to a 30-year prison term for his attempted kidnapping and assault on Pelosi’s residence on May 17th.

A new hearing was scheduled for May 28th after the judge acknowledged the error in a recent court filing. Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley sentenced DePape to 20 years for the kidnapping charge and 30 for his assault on Paul Pelosi, but the sentences would run concurrently. He’ll be given credit for the 18 months he’s already served behind bars.

The incident inspired numerous allegations regarding DePape and Paul Pelosi’s prior relationship, including reviving the perennial rumor that Paul Pelosi is a homosexual.

During the trial, DePape testified that he believed the mainstream media lies about Donald Trump regularly. He also admitted that his intent in the home invasion was to hold Nancy Pelosi hostage and force her to admit to corruption.

DePape is a Canadian who has lived in the U.S. for over two decades and who has regularly taken part in leftist protests, including nude activism. A series of right-wing coded internet screeds were taken down and attributed to him; they were used to argue that DePape was a rabid Trump supporter shortly after his arrest for bludgeoning Paul Pelosi with a hammer. Pelosi had to undergo multiple surgeries to repair the damage to his skull and right arm.

The attack occurred in the wee hours of the morning on October 28th, 2022. The police found the men entangled over control of a hammer and during the 911 call Paul Pelosi referred to DePape as “a friend.” The suggestion that this was a homosexual prostitution encounter gone awry is the butt of many jokes from conservative commentators.
