On Wednesday, Nancy Pelosi, the former House Speaker from California and a member of the Democratic Party, notified the House of Representatives that she had received a subpoena requesting the submission of records pertaining to a criminal prosecution in the state of California.
The House clerk adhered to the customary protocol of reading Pelosi’s notification upon receipt of a subpoena pertaining to a criminal or civil issue involving a member of the House.
“This is to notify you formally pursuant to Rule Eight of the rules of the House of Representatives, that I, the Honorable Nancy Pelosi, Speaker Emerita, and U.S. Representative for the 11th Congressional District of California, have been served with third party subpoenas from the prosecution and the defendant to produce documents in a criminal case and United States District Court for the Northern District of California,” Pelosi’s statement read.
“After consultation with the Office of General Counsel, I have determined that compliance with the subpoenas is consistent with the privileges and of the House to the extent it requires production of non-privileged information. The responses to the subpoenas will be identical,” the statement continued.
As of the present news, the specific criminal case to which the subpoena is related remains undisclosed.
The individual who perpetrated an assault on Paul, the spouse of Pelosi, by employing a hammer within the confines of their residence in California during the month of January of the current year, is slated to face legal proceedings commencing later in the present month. The relationship between the subpoena and the case remains ambiguous.
