The body camera footage from the incident that left Paul Pelosi with a broken skull last week will soon be available to members of Paul Pelosi’s family, most likely including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The video has not yet been released to the public.
The family will have access to the bodycam video and 911 audio before it is made public, according to a Tuesday night CNN report that cited a source familiar with the situation.
Right-leaning critics, like as former Fox News personality Megyn Kelly, have questioned the sequence of events as described by the SFPD, saying in her Monday SiriusXM podcast, “I know enough to smell a rat.”
“I feel like at a minimum, the SFPD has egg on its face, because even under the most generous story to Paul Pelosi and to the San Francisco police, they were in the house when this guy attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer,” Kelly stated.
Radio personality for a conservative station, Michael Savage, questioned the reported attack and wanted to see the bodycam evidence.
“Why won’t the police release the Bodycam footage? how does a stranger get into a ft.knox level mansion without triggering an alarm? who at this level of gov’t does not have 24/7 security? why was the glass broken out ward not inward?”

The video is anticipated to show Paul Pelosi opening the door for the responding police officers who were sent to his home as David DePape, 42, attacks him with a hammer. He allegedly persuaded DePape to let him use the restroom, and it was then that he placed a mysterious 911 call that resulted in a police reaction to his house.
A affidavit asserts At 2:23 a.m., Paul Pelosi contacted 911 and “stated words to the effect of there is a male in the home and that the male is going to wait for Pelosi’s wife,” according to CNN. “Pelosi further conveyed that he does not know who the male is. The male said his name is David.”
When the responding cops arrived on the scene, they allegedly saw DePape and Paul Pelosi battling for custody of a hammer, with DePape finally triumphant before using it to strike Paul Pelosi in the head. After the assault, police allegedly rushed in to tackle DePape.
“DePape pulled the hammer from Pelosi’s hand and swung the hammer, striking Pelosi in the head,” according to the affidavit. “Officers immediately went inside and were able to restrain DePape. While officers were restraining DePape, Pelosi appeared to be unconscious on the ground.”

DePape had reportedly entered the residence through a glass door. Reports and images indicate DePape smashed through it with a hammer.
