According to a recent source, Paul Pelosi dispatched a private detective in response to the police report of his crash on May 28.
The event resulted in Pelosi, 82, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, being found guilty of DUI. He was given a sentence of five days in jail, three years of probation, and attendance in a program against drunk driving.
The Daily Mail claimed to have a copy of an internal message about the investigation from June 13.
Captain John Blencowe of the California Highway Patrol wrote to Napa Deputy District Attorney Aimee McLeod that “Earlier last week, a private investigator named Dawn King arrived at our office and attempted to obtain a copy of the crash report involving Mr. Pelosi and Mr. Lopez.”

According to what he stated, “My staff requested an authorization letter to confirm she was representing a party of interest.”
According to Blencowe, King returned with a letter stating that he had been asked to obtain a copy of the report by Amanda Bevins, a lawyer for Pelosi.
The captain continued, “My staff called Mr. Pelosi to verify these facts, and he confirmed that Ms. King was authorized to obtain a copy of the crash report on his behalf.”
King refused to respond to the Mail’s questions.
She revealed to the Napa Valley Register in 2018 that her company, Dawn to Dawn Investigations, paid her $100 per hour. She identified herself as a former FBI agent.
The Daily Mail reported that an email sent by Blencowe to Napa County District Attorney Jennifer Haley at 3:57 a.m. the day following the collision was also made available by the California Highway Patrol’s public records unit.
The email claimed Pelosi was at fault, according to the Daily Mail.
