BOMBSHELL! Contradictory Statements on Paul Pelosi Attack Leave More Questions Unanswered
Details in the federal charging documents against David DePape about the assault on Paul Pelosi, the 82-year-old husband of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi at the couple’s San Francisco home are in conflict with an NBC News report from Friday morning.
Pelosi underwent brain surgery after being critically injured by the hammer attack, which also severely injured his right arm and hands. He was discharged from the hospital on Thursday and went home, where he will have a long recovery.
DePape, a Canadian illegal immigrant who is being held without bond and under ICE detention, is accused of violating both state and federal law. According to reports, DePape admitted to breaking into the Pelosi residence with the intention of kidnapping Nancy Pelosi and breaking her kneecaps. When informed that Nancy Pelosi was not at home, he allegedly tried to kidnap him instead. According to the police, DePape had tape, zip ties, and two hammers.
Let me interject something here. I feel the exact same way about this man being an illegal immigrant from Canada as I would if he were from Mexico. The immigration crisis at the border is not one of racism, but of justice and a matter of law.
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus preached about building your house on a solid foundation. While the context was not dealing with this topic that we’re discussing, I think the principle about being established on a firm foundation carries over into other areas of life, including this idea of illegal immigration.
What I mean by that is that when these people begin their lives in the United States by entering through breaking the law, that established a precedent as to what kind of person they are. They are ones who are willing to break the laws of our land. That’s the foundation that they’ve built.
Aynway, here is what NBC said:
But that contradicts what the report says:
10. At 2:31 a.m., San Francisco Police Department (“SFPD”) Officer Colby Wilmes responded to the Pelosi residence, California and knocked on the front door. 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.
11. 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. While officers were restraining DEPAPE, Pelosi appeared to be unconscious on the ground. Officers removed a cell phone, cash, clipper cards, and an unidentified card from DEPAPE’s right shorts pocket. DEPAPE provided officers his first and last name. 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. San Francisco Police Department recovered zip ties in Pelosi’s bedroom and in the hallway near the front door of the Pelosi residence. In addition, law enforcement searched DEPAPE’s backpack at the Pelosi residence, and they found, among other things, a roll of tape, white rope, one hammer, one pair of rubber and cloth gloves, and a journal.
What is really going on here?
