Posts spread false claims about Paul Pelosi's DUI case

Social media posts claim Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the US House of Representatives, requested that California Governor Gavin Newsom intervene to drop charges against her husband Paul Pelosi after he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. This is false; the district attorney's office in Napa County said it was reviewing the case, and Pelosi's deputy chief of staff, a Newsom spokeswoman and the California Highway Patrol all refuted the claim.
