(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) The Capitol Police camera set up outside of the San Francisco home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and her venture capitalist husband, Paul, apparently captured footage of the alleged break-in early Friday morning involving a mentally deranged Berkeley nudist.
Yet, somehow, nobody was watching when the incident happened. Capitol Police only noticed when they saw police lights show up on the camera screen, MSN reported.
David DePape, the 42-year-old man who admitted to assaulting Paul Pelosi with a hammer, will likely be charged with “attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, burglary and several other additional felonies,” the San Francisco chief of police said.
Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger said that his agency—which has become the Pelosis’ defacto personal security force and spy agency since the Jan. 6 uprising—was conducting an internal review of how DePape was able to avoid detection while breaking into the house.
According to the MSN report, the Capitol Police installed cameras outside the Pelosi household eight years ago, which likely would have been when she was the House minority leader. It is unclear if any other congressional lawmakers are afforded the same protection.
Manger claimed it would be necessary to step up surveillance and monitor the American people even more closely following the recent assault because the “political climate” was going to necessitate “additional layers of physical security.”
Leftist media have attempted to frame the attack as a politically-charged assault, baselessly claiming that DePape was a Trump supporter who wished to harm the House speaker by breaking her kneecaps.
President Joe Biden, also exploited the dangerous attack on Pelosi to push a false narrative linking the far-left assailant to the Jan. 6, 2021, uprising at the U.S. Capitol.
In reality, evidence suggests DePape was a left-wing extremist, and, according to the police dispatch, may have been a “friend” of Paul Pelosi’s.
Other leftists have spoken somberly about the violence supposedly instigated by radical right wing rhetoric.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., who leads the Senate committee overseeing security at the Capitol, said lawmakers were considering new measures, including taking their private information off the internet.
According to Klobuchar, Pelosi “has been villainized for years and, big surprise, it’s gone viral, and it went violent.”
