The story was everywhere just a few weeks ago, but now? Nowhere.
Remember the attack on Paul Pelosi? It happened a few weeks ago, just before the midterms, when the media told us that the BLM-supporting nudist who lived in a San Franciso commune was somehow a right-wing Trump supporter.
Now the story has vanished.
A search of Google News provided this report from ABC 7 in New York as the most recent news. It’s from November 15th:
David DePape pleads not guilty to federal charges in attack on Paul Pelosi at family’s home
David DePape, the man accused of attacking Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, has entered a plea of not guilty to federal charges stemming from the brutal assault and break in on Oct. 28.
DePape, 42, was indicted by a federal grand jury last week on charges of “Attempted kidnapping of a federal employee” or officer and “Assault on an immediate family member of a federal agent and employee.”
In court on Tuesday, he pleaded not guilty to these charges while being guarded by 5 US Marshals and 2 Sheriff officers. DePape can face sentences of up to 20 years for the federal attempted kidnapping charge and up to 30 years for the federal assault charge.
These federal charges are separate from the state charges being prosecuted by the San Francisco District Attorney’s office and will be handled as its own case, according to a representative from the U.S. Attorney’s office.
Some details in the case even seem to be getting shielded from the public:
Boy, they sure don't want any of the evidence in the case against Paul Pelosi's attacker to be made public. Very strict protective order recently filed: pic.twitter.com/lwhMqtFdyb

Judicial Watch is trying to get answers but isn’t having much luck:
Judicial Watch: San Francisco District Attorney Refuses to Release Details of Police Response to Assault of Paul Pelosi
Judicial Watch announced today that the San Francisco district attorney refused to provide documents and video of the police activity at the home of Paul Pelosi, husband of the Speaker of the House, where David Wayne DePape was arrested following an alleged assault on October 28, 2022.
Among the items District Attorney Brooke Jenkins refused to release are a recording of Paul Pelosi’s 911 call and police officers’ body camera footage. Nikki Moore, assistant district attorney, took the unusual step of providing some details about the incidentresponse to Judicial Watch’s California Public Records Act request:
The two persons present at the Pelosi home when the SFPD arrived where [sic] Mr. Pelosi and Mr. DePape. Please see the online posted document that reflects that Mr. Pelosi was the only person in the home at the time of the attack. Seehttps://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2022/11/01/us/david-de-pape-motion-to-detain.html. You can obtain an official copy of this court record from the Superior Court.
In its November 2022 request to the district attorney, Judicial Watch noted a news report stating that news organizations had been rebuffed on similar requests and, pursuant to the California Public Records Act, asked for, in addition to the recording and camera footage: All records of communications, including emails and text messages, between the SFDAO [San Francisco District Attorney’s Office] and the San Francisco Police Department concerning the incident. It also asked for communications with several federal agencies, including the Justice Department, the Capitol Police, and the FBI. Judicial Watch also asked for the identities of the persons at the Pelosi home at the time of the incident.
A lot of folks on Twitter are asking questions about this.
