AP source says man accused of assaulting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband will face federal charges – Chicago Tribune

WASHINGTON — The man accused of assaulting Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, will be charged Monday with threatening the wife of a federal official, a source briefed on the investigation said.

The imminent federal indictment against David DePaipe, 42, comes days after police said he broke into Pelosi’s San Francisco home and hit the Democratic leader’s 82-year-old husband in the head with a hammer. He was seriously injured in the attack and underwent surgery for a fractured skull and other injuries to his hands and arms.

Federal prosecutors will charge DePape with influencing, obstructing or retaliating against a federal official by threatening or injuring a family member, according to the source, who was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly.

The announcement of the imminent federal indictment comes as the San Francisco District Attorney prepares to announce state criminal charges against DePape. He was arrested Friday on suspicion of attempted murder, elder abuse and burglary and is expected to face state charges Tuesday.

San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins also dismissed conspiracy theories about the attack, confirming that the attacker was targeting the Democratic leader when he broke into the couple’s home and confronted Paul Pelosi.
