    Pelosi Attack Suspect Hit with 2 Federal Charges, Then San Francisco DA Adds 6 More

    Published on

    Two federal charges and six state charges have been brought against the man who reportedly broke into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco home and assaulted her husband, Paul Pelosi, on Friday.

    In a criminal complaint released on Monday, the Justice Department claimed that David DePape admitted to police that he was ready to question the speaker while holding her prisoner and threaten to shatter her kneecaps if she did not give the appropriate answers.

    “DEPAPE stated that he was going to hold Nancy hostage and talk to her. If Nancy were to tell DEPAPE the ‘truth,’ he would let her go, and if she ‘lied,’ he was going to break ‘her kneecaps. DEPAPE was certain that Nancy would not have told the ‘truth,’” the complaint stated.

    “In the course of the interview, DEPAPE articulated he viewed Nancy as the ‘leader of the pack’ of lies told by the Democratic Party. DEPAPE also later explained that by breaking Nancy’s kneecaps, she would then have to be wheeled into Congress, which would show other Members of Congress there were consequences to actions,” the document said.

    The complaint stated that “DEPAPE also explained generally that he wanted to use Nancy to lure another individual to DEPAPE.”

    DePape is accused by the federal government of attempted kidnapping of a United States official and assaulting a member of the official’s immediate family with the intention of retaliating against the official for performing official duties, according to the press release from the Justice Department.

    For both of those offenses, the maximum term is 50 years in jail.

    Additional accusations against DePape include attempted murder, burglary, assault using a deadly weapon, elder abuse, false confinement of an age, and threats against a public official and their family, according to San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins, who made the announcement on Monday.

    In a news release, Jenkins stated that DePape might spend the rest of his life in prison if found guilty of the state’s charges.

    DePape “forced his way into the home through a rear glass door by breaking the glass,” the district attorney reportedly told reporters on Monday, according to The Hill. He then went upstairs where Paul Pelosi, 82, was sleeping.

    DePape allegedly said he was coming to confront Pelosi’s wife, according to the police.

    “Pelosi asked how they could resolve the situation, and what DEPAPE wanted to do. DEPAPE stated he wanted to tie Pelosi up so that DEPAPE could go to sleep as he was tired from having had to carry a backpack to the Pelosi residence. Around this time, according to DEPAPE, DEPAPE started taking out twist ties from his pocket so that he could restrain Pelosi,” the federal complaint said.

    Pelosi made a trip to the bathroom where he called 911, according to the complaint. DePape then brought Pelosi downstairs to the front door.

    When the police arrived, according to the complaint, “Pelosi ran over and opened it. Pelosi grabbed onto DEPAPE’s hammer, which was in DEPAPE’s hand. At this point in the interview, DEPAPE repeated that DEPAPE did not plan to surrender and that he would go ‘through’ Pelosi.” CONTINUE READING…
