Last year, Americans learned about the attack on Paul Pelosi, the husband to former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
This attack happened inside Pelosi’s home. The assailant has since been taken into custody and faces a litany of charges. Nevertheless, there are still some very real questions about how this all transpired.
Many folks have not gotten the answers they’re looking for. The reality of inconsistencies in the coverage of this attack has only led to even more people searching for answers to get to the bottom of it all.
According to Legal Insurrection, part of this search has entailed lawsuits from certain news sources.
Digging For the Truth
Fox News, the New York Times, Associated Press, and Washington Post are each filing suit against the office of the San Francisco District Attorney. The purpose of this lawsuit is to ultimately learn more about the video and audio evidence standing against Pelosi attacker David DePape.
The office of the San Francisco District Attorney turned over this evidence during a preliminary hearing last month; however, it’s currently blocking the aforementioned media outlets from having access.
JUST IN: News outlets file court motion against the Pelosi family, calling for the release of evidence relating to the Paul Pelosi / DePape attack.
What are they hiding?

Body camera footage, a 911 call, and an interview of DePape are each believed to be within the evidence that the four media outlets are searching for. Whether or not their lawsuit ends up forcing the hand of the San Francisco District Attorney’s office remains to be seen.
As things currently stand, there are questions about why the office is so eager to keep the press from having access to this evidence. There are also questions being raised about if there’s more to this story than what’s been shared with the public so far.
If there is, then that would definitely explain the motive behind the San Francisco District Attorney’s office’s decision.
Inquiring Minds Want to Know
Fox News, the New York Times, Associated Press, and Washington Post aren’t the only ones who want the full account of what all happened to Paul Pelosi.
Amid news of their lawsuit, Americans have taken to social media, noting that they, too, would like to see the body camera footage. This lawsuit has led to a resurgence of public attention directed to the Paul Pelosi attack after weeks of it disappearing from the media.
