HeadlineNov 17, 2023

A federal jury in California has found a right-wing conspiracy theorist guilty of attempted kidnapping and assault charges, after he invaded the San Francisco home of then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in 2022 and attacked her husband, Paul Pelosi, with a hammer. Ahead of the attack, 43-year-old David DePape shared QAnon conspiracy theories and false claims about the 2020 election and the January 6 Capitol insurrection. He faces up to 50 years in prison at a future sentencing hearing.
