(Tea Party PAC) – Back in October, when then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, was allegedly attacked in their San Francisco home by a home invader the actual evidence in the case was intentionally scarce.
Police have refused to release body cam footage and Capitol Police likewise refused to release footage from security cameras at the residence. It’s pretty hard not to conclude the entire thing was just another leftist political charade to influence the outcome of the 2022 midterm elections.
Now a group of news organizations is seeking access to the evidence that has been thus far withheld from the public. The coalition of outlets includes local San Francisco and national news organizations such as The New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Los Angeles Times, The Press Democrat, CNN, Fox News, The Washington Post, NBC, ABC, CBS and radio station KQED.
The outlets filed a court motion last week seeking the release of evidence introduced in David DePape’s preliminary hearing. DePape is the alleged attacker who has been accused of beating Pelosi with a hammer. He’s also been identified as a free-loading, mentally troubled, drug-addicted, illegal alien leftist from Canada.
DePape is facing a slew of charges related to the incident which leftist media outlets have insisted was only the first in a series of political attacks DePape had planned. Nancy, not Paul, was the alleged target.
Bear in mind that DePape was a drug-addicted vagrant and the only thing he likely had planned was how he was going to get his next score. The narrative from left-wing news organizations has been that DePape is a highly motivated, right-wing assailant motivated by politics.
Yet the evidence to back any of that story up has been virtually non-existent. Court filings obtained by The New York Times outline key details of the state’s case against DePape which references the video and audio footage being sought by the coalition of news organizations.
The evidence was introduced during a preliminary hearing in December and includes the police body camera footage, the residence’s security footage, and a video of a post-arrest interview with DePape.
Despite being introduced in the preliminary hearing, the evidence has still been kept from the public for reasons that remain unknown. The media coalition’s attorney is arguing that “the public and press have standing to assert their rights of access to court records and proceedings.”
There has been no indication if the court intends to grant their request. The San Francisco district attorney’s office has yet to release the evidence since the media made the inquiry last week.
If DePape’s case goes to trial, which is unlikely given the bizarre circumstances surrounding the entire incident, the evidence could then enter the public domain. It’s entirely possible that the evidence could shatter the current narrative on the supposed attack.
DePape is currently incarcerated without bond and his next court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 23. He has pleaded not guilty to six charges brought on by the state and two federal charges.
Things could get very interesting. Stay tuned.
