The incident involving House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home invasion and attack on her husband is raising additional questions as it doesn’t seem to be becoming any clearer.
After breaking into their home and yelling “Where’s Nancy,” David DePape, 42, was charged with attempted murder for hitting Paul Pelosi, 82, with a hammer. A week has gone since the hammer attack, and Pelosi is recuperating at home after undergoing significant surgery and suffering injuries to his head. Nevertheless, many things remain unsolved.
It was unclear whether a third person was present, but law enforcement officials have established that Paul Pelosi and the suspect, DePape, were the only two individuals in the house when police arrived.
The confusion arose from media reports that appeared after San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) Chief Bill Scott stated at a press conference on October 28 that when officers knocked on the Pelosi residence’s front door, “the door was opened by someone inside,” and officers observed Pelosi and DePape “inside the entryway of the home.” Additionally, when Pelosi was on the phone with 911, there was misunderstanding regarding the phrase “another male” in the court filings.
A court document that DePape used to enter the Pelosis’ house early on Friday morning and confront a sleeping Paul while just wearing boxer shorts and a pajama top provided an explanation for how the burglar got inside.
When DePape arrived at the scene, he pointed to the glass door and said the detectives that was how he entered the residence. A laptop, further packages of zip ties, and another hammer were found in his backpack later by police outside the broken glass doors.
Some, however, assert that the glass door appears to have been broken from the inside.
‘What We Know So Far,’ a BlazeTV podcast episode, featured Glenn Beck questioned the reason for the shattered rear door, saying, “It appears to be busted from the inside.” “I mean, I watched enough Colombo to forgive me, sir, one more thing: the glass was on the inside of the door, not the outside, but we have no idea what kind of glass it was.”
Another concern is how it is so simple to enter a home belonging to the third in line for the president.
Although Pelosi was in Washington at the time of the incident and was covered by her security detail, which does not cover family members, Pelosi’s house frequently had a patrol car deployed there by the San Francisco Police Department, especially following the attack at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. She hurried back to San Francisco, where her husband was hospitalized and undergoing surgery for a fractured skull and other wounds.
Kolby Wilmes and Kyle Cagney of the San Francisco Police Department were sent to the home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul Pelosi at 2:27 a.m. on Friday, October 28, to conduct a “A-priority” well-being check.
Pelosi apparently ignored DePape’s instructions to use his left hand to open the door when they rang the doorbell. Pelosi calmly greeted the cops as she and DePape stood in the dimly lighted lobby, according to the police report.
DePape withdrew his hands toward his body and said, “Everything’s good,” when one of the cops asked the men what was going on. DePape could be seen with one hand on Pelosi’s right arm and the other on the bottom handle of the hammer as an officer flashed his spotlight. On the hammer’s handle, Pelosi’s right hand was also resting.
When an officer ordered for the men to ‘drop the hammer,’ DePape raised the hammer and said, ‘um, nope’ as he tried to pull it away from Pelosi who exclaimed ‘hey, hey!’ DePape then gained control of it and struck Pelosi’s head, which knocked Pelosi unconscious. Officers immediately tackled DePape and arrested him.

Apparently, the two responding officers witnessed DePape hit Pelosi with the hammer, striking him in the head, the court filing states. The assault was also captured on the officers’ body cameras.
DePape’s post are at odds with banners he flew. While social media posts indicate that DePape is on the far right, neighbors noted his politics were far to the left. They said he had Black Live Matter flags and an LGBT rainbow flag outside his home. CONTINUE READING…
