Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) informed the House of Representatives Wednesday that she had been served with a subpoena “to produce documents in a criminal case” in California.
Pelosi’s notice was read by the House clerk, which is standard procedure when a member of the House receives a subpoena relating to a criminal or civil matter.
“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.
The criminal matter that the subpoena pertains to remains unknown as of this report.
The man who attacked Pelosi’s husband, Paul, with a hammer inside the couple’s California home this past January is scheduled to go on trial later this month. It is unclear whether the subpoena is related to the case.
