David DePape found guilty in Paul Pelosi attack

David DePape, who attacked Paul Pelosi, husband of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, with a hammer during a break-in, was convicted by a federal jury of attempted kidnapping of a federal official and assault on the immediate family member of a federal official. DePape faces up to life in federal prison and is still facing state charges for attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, residential burglary, false imprisonment, and threatening a public official’s life. The defense claimed DePape did not intend to kidnap anyone and wanted to use Pelosi to reach a person labeled as “Target 1,” identified as academic Gayle Rubin. DePape made baseless allegations and grievances during his trial, revealing the impact of conspiracy theories and misinformation in modern politics.
