More Questions Than Answers on Pelosi Attacker David DePape’s Charging Documents

The criminal complaint against David DePape that was released earlier today leaves more questions than answers.

Kristinn Taylor drafted the following summary of the David DePape charging document.  In the charging documents, the Justice Department, via interviews with Paul Pelosi and DePape lay out the government’s version of events (TGPsummary):

The two men did not know each other. DePape broke into the house via a rear door using a hammer and went upstairs looking for Nancy Pelosi. He found Paul Pelosi in bed and told him he was looking for Nancy. Not finding her home he told Paul he would wait for her. He let Paul go to the bathroom where Paul made a 911 call, which apparently DePape overheard. The two went downstairs where Paul opened the door when police knocked. Paul was not attacked until police arrived when he was apparently beaten unconscious by DePape with a hammer while police confronted the men. DePape had a bag with zip ties, rope, tape, gloves, another hammer and a journal.

DePape said his plan was to hold Nancy Pelosi hostage to get her to tell the truth and let her go if she did tell the truth, but if she lied he would break her kneecaps.

The document claims DEPAPE was prepared to detain and injure Speaker Pelosi when he entered the Pelosi residence in the early morning of October 28, 2022. DEPAPE had zip ties, tape, rope, and
at least one hammer with him that morning.

Why do we not know how many hammers he had with him when he entered the home and why more than one hammer?

Special Agent Stephanie Minor created the report based on “my experience and training as an FBI Special Agent also forms the basis of the opinions and conclusions set forth below.”

Why would the FBI assign a low-level agent to this case?  Doesn’t this involve the US Speaker of the House?  Ms. Minor has only been a Special Agent since 2019.

Ms. Minor says: “I have participated in several investigations of individuals that committed criminal acts in furtherance of ideological goals, to include militia violent extremists.”

So is she one of the FBI Agents involved in the Jan 6 sham?

On October 28, 2022, at 2:23 a.m., San Francisco Dispatch received a 9-1-1 call from Paul Pelosi (“Pelosi”) located at the Pelosi residence in San Francisco, California. Pelosi 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. Pelosi further conveyed that he does not know who the male is. The male said his name is David.

Didn’t Paul Pelosi say David was his friend?  Why was this left out of this document?

When the door was opened, Pelosi and DEPAPE were both holding a hammer with one hand and DEPAPE had his other hand holding onto Pelosi’s forearm. Pelosi greeted the officers. The officers asked them what was going on. DEPAPE responded that everything was good. Officers then asked Pelosi and DEPAPE to drop the hammer.

There is no mention of who opened the door.  Initial reports were that someone else was there.  This is also the first time we hear that DePape said everything was good. 

DEPAPE pulled the hammer from Pelosi’s hand and swung the hammer, striking Pelosi in the head. Officers immediately went inside and were able to restrain DEPAPE. …After officers asked DEPAPE if he had an ID on him, DEPAPE said it might be in his backpack on the back porch and later stated his backpack was near the broken glass. When officers removed DEPAPE from Pelosi’s residence, police body worn camera footage showed a glass door that appeared to be laminated glass, broken near the door handle.

If Paul Pelosi is over 80, wouldn’t the hammer strike to his head kill him?  What were the men wearing at this time?  Initial reports were that one or both were in their underwear.  Why is this not clarified? 

Also, DePape was injured and taken to the hospital along with Pelosi.  Why is there no mention of his injuries?  

Also, the body cam shows a glass door that appeared to be laminated glass broken near the door handle.  But this door was not open.  The doors four or five feet away were open.  DePape could not fit in the small hole in the glass that was broken.  How did he get in?  Also, if this was laminated glass and it was broken by DePape, how many times did he have to hammer the glass before it broke?  Why was this not captured by the CCTV cameras, motion detectors and security at that time?

Witness 1, who saw an individual in all black, carrying a large black bag on his back, walking near the Pelosi residence where Witness 1 was parked. Witness 1 was working private security at an address nearby. Witness 1 then heard what sounded like banging on either a door or car and then heard the sirens within a minute or two.

Where was the security at the Pelosi house?  Surely the US Speaker of the House who is worth millions obtained while she’s been in Congress has security of her own.  Why did they not hear this? 

This is also the first time that we heard there were sirens.  Why would the police turn on their sirens when it was a wellness check?

Pelosi was interviewed by SFPD Officer Ariane Starks in the ambulance during transport to San Francisco General Hospital. Pelosi stated he had never seen DEPAPE before.  Pelosi was asleep when DEPAPE came into Pelosi’s bedroom and stated he wanted to talk to“Nancy.” … Pelosi stated that his wife would not be home for several days and then DEPAPE reiterated that he would wait. Pelosi was able to go into the bathroom which is when he was able to call 9-1-1. Pelosi stated that when the officers arrived, that was when DEPAPE struck him with the hammer.

Why was it omitted that Pelosi called him David?  How did he know that?  Pelosi also called him his friend in his call with 911. 

Why did not the security system or person not identify a person walking around the Pelosi home in the middle of the night?  How did he know where the bedroom was located?

[Next, the document discusses the interview with DePape where he apparently claimed he wanted Pelosi to tell the ‘truth’.  This is not defined.]

DEPAPE stated that he broke into the house through a glass door, which was a difficult task that required the use of a hammer.

Again, how many times did DePape hit the glass door without anyone noticing?

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.

He wanted to take a nap?  How did DePape get there?  Why was this not discussed?

While talking with each other, Pelosi went into a bathroom, where Pelosi grabbed a phone to call 9-1-1… DEPAPE stated that they went downstairs to the front door. The police arrived and knocked on the door, and Pelosi ran over and opened it. Pelosi grabbed onto DEPAPE’s hammer, which was in DEPAPE’s hand…DEPAPE stated that he pulled the hammer away from Pelosi and swung the hammer towards Pelosi. DEPAPE explained that Pelosi’s actions resulted in Pelosi “taking the punishment instead.”

[This story now begins to read like the fraudulent and fake Steele dossier used to frame President Trump that we now know was an entire lie.]

So according to this story, DePape knew that 911 was called.  He apparently allowed that.  DePape also allowed Pelosi to open the door and then grab DePape’s hammer. 

The third person that the police mentioned over the weekend is no longer part of the story. 

[Next the FBI claims that they examined the garage that DePape lived in for the past two years.]

The FBI never mentions that DePape is an illegal alien.  

The FBI never mentions that his wife and he are connected to nudist activities. 

The FBI never mentions that his wife has tweets where she berates President Trump. 

The FBI never mentions DePape’s injuries and why he is still in the hospital or how he was injured.

The FBI never discusses websites associated with DePape.

This appears to be red meat for the media just like the bogus and now-known fraudulent Steele dossier only two weeks from the election. 

The Pelosis and the FBI are a disgrace to this nation.
