Who is Christine Pelosi? Nancy Pelosi's daughter is being touted as possible successor to Speaker's House seat
Judge Loretta Giorgi, who is presiding over the assault case of Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul, revealed that she worked with Christine in the '90s
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA: The San Francisco judge overseeing the assault case against Nancy Pelosi's husband, Paul revealed that she had previously worked with their daughter, Christine. Pelosi's daughter, 55 and Judge Loretta Giorgi used to work together at the San Francisco city attorney's office, but Giorgi admitted in court that they haven't spoken in a while.
The mention of Christine in relation to her father's assault case also brings to mind the role Pelosi's daughter has in the scheme of things. Christine, is one of Paul and Nancy's five children and is involved in local Democratic politics and the chatter in political circles is that she could be the House speaker's possible successor when Pelosi puts down the gavel.
The judge presiding over Paul's case disclosed to the court, going on record to state that "the daughter of Mr. Pelosi, Christine Pelosi, and I were in the city attorney’s office together in the 90s. And I have disclosed to counsel the interactions that I had when she and I were together. I haven’t seen or heard or talked to Ms. Pelosi after she left the office. I do see her here today.” Giorgi once held the position of public integrity chief and is now in charge of the prosecution of David DePape, who is accused of beating Paul with a hammer in the family's Pacific Heights home on October 28 and planning to kidnap the Speaker, who was not at home at that time, Giorgi revealed the relationship in order to allow the defense team for DePape and the local prosecutor a chance to express their worries, reports the New York Post.
The Berkeley drifter has entered a not-guilty plea to charges of attempted murder, burglary and elder abuse after allegedly leaving Paul with a fractured skull. As he heals from his injuries, Paul was discharged from the hospital on Thursday, November 3. “Paul remains under doctors’ care as he continues to progress on a long recovery process and convalescence,” the Speaker reportedly said.
