Now : Pelosi DePape videos + call kill MAGA, QAnon conspiracy claims!

On Saturday, January 28, 2023, all those MAGA and QAnon conspiracy theories were dismissed as utter nonsense with the release of the body camera and CCTV videos, as well as the 911 call.

The evidence now definitively prove that all those MAGA and QAnon conspiracy theories about Paul Pelosi and David DePape were complete fabrication.

They were released after a state court judge ruled on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, that there was no reason to keep them secret.

The San Francisco district attorney earlier refused to release them, forcing a coalition of news agencies to sue for access to the evidence.

Police Body Camera Video

The police body camera video showed Paul Pelosi and David DePape holding onto a hammer, when after Pelosi opened the door. Neither man were wearing underwear, as some conspiracy theorists have alleged.

When the officer asked them to drop the hammer, DePape wrest the hammer from Pelosi and proceeded to attack him with the hammer. The actual hammer hit on Paul Pelosi’s head occurred out of the camera’s view.

After police officers wrestled David DePape to the ground, Paul Pelosi can be seen lying face down on the floor, apparently unconscious in a pool of what appears to be his own blood.

Capitol Police CCTV Surveillance Video

The surveillance video came from a Capitol Police CCTV camera that was installed at the Pelosi household.

There was not Capitol Police present, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi was away – their protection unfortunately did not extend to her husband.

David DePape is seen arriving at the back of the Pelosi house with two backpacks, before proceeding to use a hammer to smash the glass door six times, before attempting to break in.

After failing to gain entry, DePape proceeded to whack the glass door with his hammer ten more times, before using his shoulder to smash his way through.

He can then be seen ducking through the glass door – he appears to have broken just two glass panels.

911 Call

The 911 call, which runs almost 3 minutes, showed Paul Pelosi trying to alert the operator to the danger he was facing without triggering David DePape who was listening to the call, and even chimed in.

Here is my rough transcript of what was said in that 911 call between Paul Pelosi and David DePape on one end, and the 911 operator on the other end.

Operator : This is San Francisco Police. Do you need help?

Pelosi : There is a gentleman here waiting for my wife to come back. Nancy Pelosi. He’s just waiting for her to come back. She’s not going to be here for a day, so I guess we’ll have to wait. Is the Capitol Police around? They’re usually here at the house protecting my wife.

Operator : Okay, do you need Police, Fire, or Medical, for anything?

Pelosi : Uh, I don’t think so. I don’t think so. There’s the, um… Is the Capitol Police around?

Operator : No, this is San Francisco Police.

Pelosi : They’re usually here at the house protecting my wife.

Operator : No, this is San Francisco Police.

Pelosi : No, I understand. Uh, okay, well, uh. (speaking to DePape) I don’t know. What do you think?

DePape : I think everything’s good.

Pelosi : He thinks everything’s good. I’ve got a problem, but he thinks everything’s good.

Operator : Okay, call us back if you change your mind.

Pelosi : No, no, no, this gentleman just came into the house, and he wants to wait for my wife to come home. And so, uh… Anyway.

Operator : Do you know who the person is?

Pelosi : No, I don’t know who he is. He’s telling me not to do anything.

Operator : What is your name?

Pelosi : My name is Paul Pelosi. Anyway, this gentleman says that… he’s telling me to put the phone down, and to do what he says. Okay?

Operator : Okay, what’s the gentleman’s name?

Pelosi : I don’t know.

DePape : David DePape.

Pelosi : What’s that?

DePape : My name’s David.

Pelosi : His name’s David.

Operator : Okay, and who is David?

Pelosi : I don’t know. (to DePape) What’s that?

DePape : I’m a friend of theirs.

Pelosi : I don’t… He said he’s a friend, but as I said, I don’t know…

Operator : But you don’t know who he is?

Pelosi : No, ma’am.

Operator : Okay.

Pelosi : He’s telling me I’m being very leading, so I have to stop talking to you, okay?

Operator : Okay. You sure? I can stay on the phone with you just to make sure everything’s okay.

DePape : No, we want you to…

Pelosi : He wants me to get the hell off the phone. Okay?

Operator : Okay.

Pelosi : Thank you.

Operator : Okay, bye.

As you can tell by now – Paul Pelosi had no idea who David DePape was, and you can hear how he’s trying to convey to the 911 operator the danger he was in, without tipping off DePape.

Did Paul Pelosi Hire David DePape As Prostitute?!

Was David DePape, who attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer, a male prostitute he hired the night before?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-01-28 : Added the bodycam and CCTV surveillance videos on the night of the assault.
Originally posted @ 2022-11-01

 

Claim : David DePape Was A Prostitute Paul Pelosi Hired!

The Santa Monica Observer went viral recently, after Elon Musk shared a story by its staff writer, Stan Greene, that claimed David DePape was actually a male prostitute that Paul Pelosi hired!

It’s a long, rambling article, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

The Awful Truth: Paul Pelosi Was Drunk Again, And In a Dispute With a Male Prostitute Early Friday Morning.

As SF’s gay bars closed at 2 am, two gay men met in a bar and went home together. Happens every night in the City by the Bay. Except one of these two men, was married to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Truth : David DePape Was NOT A Prostitute Paul Pelosi Hired!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created to generate page views and money from gullible people.

Fact #1 : Santa Monica Observer Is Notorious For Fake News

Santa Monica Observer is a “content aggregator” (copy and paste) website that is known for creating fake news to generate more page views and money.

To look legitimate, they copy and paste news from legitimate news organisations. To drive traffic, they create fake news. Here’s a selection of fake claims they posted in the past:

  • Hillary Clinton died in 2016, and it was her body double who debated Donald Trump.
  • Trump appointed Kanye West to a high-level position in the Interior Department.
  • Bill Gates is responsible for the recent polio epidemic.

Fact #2 : David DePape Broke Into Paul Pelosi’s Home

Santa Monica Observer falsely claimed that David DePape was a male prostitute who stayed overnight at Paul Pelosi’s home, but had a quarrel that resulted in the assault.

It’s a silly claim, because DePape admitted to police, in a sworn affidavit to the US District Court of Northern California, that he broke into the house through a rear glass door at around 2 AM on October 28, 2022.

DEPAPE stated that he broke into the house through a glass door, which was a difficult task that required the use of a hammer. DEPAPE stated that Pelosi was in bed and appeared surprised by DEPAPE. DEPAPE told Pelosi to wake up.

Fact #3 : David DePape Brought The Hammer

Santa Monica Observer falsely claimed that Paul Pelosi owned the hammer that was used in the attack.

David DePape planned to take US Speaker Nancy Pelosi hostage, interrogate her, and possibly break her kneecaps. So he brought two hammers (one later found in his backpack), a roll of tape, white rope, one pair of rubber and cloth gloves, and a journal.

[L]aw 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.

Police would later find another two hammers, together with a sword, and another pair of rubber and cloth gloves at DePape’s own garage.

On January 28, 2023, CCTV surveillance video showed David DePape hitting the glass door at the back of the Pelosi house 16 times with a hammer, before smashing his way inside.

Fact #4 : Paul Pelosi Made The 9-1-1 Call

Santa Monica Observer falsely claimed that the police went to conduct a “wellness check” on Paul Pelosi after someone else called them.

The truth is – the San Francisco Dispatch received a 9-1-1 call from Paul Pelosi at 2:23 AM, after he managed to escape to the bathroom.

Pelosi told the dispatcher that there was a male whom he did not know in his home, and that the man who called himself David was going to wait for his wife – US Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

San Francisco Police Department officers responded to the Pelosi residence at 2:31 AM.

Fact #5 : Police Officers Did Not Break The Window / Door

Santa Monica Observer falsely claimed that the police broke a window or sliding glass door to gain entry into the Pelosi residence.

The truth is – when the police officers arrived, they knocked on the door, and Paul Pelosi ran to the door to open it. That was when Pelosi and DePape got into a tussle over the hammer.

When the door opened, the officers saw both Pelosi and DePape grappling over the hammer, with DePape holding Pelosi’s forearm with his other hand.

When the officers asked them both to drop the hammer, DePape pulled it out of Pelosi’s hand and hit him on the head, knocking him unconscious.

On January 28, 2023, the police released the bodycam video of the officers who responded. You can see that Paul Pelosi opened the front door (which is a wooden door) for them, before he was assaulted by DePape with a hammer.

Fact #6 : David DePape Is Not Gay, Nor A Prostitute

Santa Monica Observer falsely claimed that David DePape is a male prostitute. There is no evidence DePape is gay or a prostitute.

He is a hemp jewellery maker who once lived with a nudist activist, Oxane “Gypsy” Taub. She lived with him for many years, and was the mother of his children – two sons and a daughter.

DePape also had another child, with a different unnamed woman, according to his stepfather, Gene DePape.

Fact #7 : David DePape Espoused Right Wing Conspiracy Views

Santa Monica Observer and many US conservatives are trying to frame David DePape as a left wing Castro nudist liberal.

However, DePape’s blog and social media posts show that he is deep into right wing conspiracy theories like:

  • He posted that journalists who deny Donald Trump’s false claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential election “should be dragged straight out into the street and shot”.
  • He posted and referenced QAnon – the baseless conspiracy theory espoused by Trump supporters, that the US is run by a deep state cabal of child sex traffickers, pedophiles and baby-eating cannibals.
  • He also claimed that Jews helped finance Hitler’s political rise in Germany.

He was also a Trump supporter, calling for the disgraced former president to run for office again, and make Tulsi Gabbard his Vice President running mate.

Fact #8 : Paul Pelosi Was Alone During His Drunk Driving Accident

Santa Monica Observer falsely claimed that there was a young man with Paul Pelosi when he hit a car while driving under the influence of alcohol.

The accident report showed that only the two drivers were involved in the accident. There were no passengers in both cars.

Did Paul Pelosi Identify David DePape As A Friend?!

Did Paul Pelosi identify David DePape as a friend on his 9-1-1 emergency call?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Paul Pelosi Identified David DePape As A Friend On 911 Call!

US conservatives like Dinesh D’Souza are claiming that Paul Pelosi identified David DePape as a friend on his 9-1-1 call.

Dinesh D’Souza : How did Pelosi know his attacker’s name? He told the police the assailant’s name was “David.” He also said David was his “friend.” This is on the police recording and you can listen to it yourself. So how do you explain these two telling facts?

KevinBee86 : Paul Pelosi’s 911 call reveals he knew the man, his name is David and describes him as his friend. In the beginning he said he didn’t know him but later, Paul confessed.

 

Truth : Paul Pelosi Did Not Call David DePape A Friend On 911 Call!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by US conservative and right wing conspiracy theorists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : David DePape Broke Into The Pelosi Residence

First, let me just point out a very salient fact – David DePape broke into the Pelosi residence, by breaking a glass door at the back using a hammer he brought.

Perhaps this is how Dinesh D’Souza’s friends visit him – by breaking through his rear door with a hammer, but I reckon that most of us have better friends than that.

Fact #2 : Paul Pelosi Was Asleep When DePape Broke In

According to David DePape’s own testimony, he broke into the Pelosi residence at around 2 AM, and found Paul Pelosi sleeping alone upstairs.

DePape then woke Pelosi up, asking him if he’s Paul Pelosi, and where his wife – the US Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, was.

Standing over Mr. Pelosi’s bedside just after 2:00 a.m., Defendant startled Mr. Pelosi awake by asking “Are you Paul Pelosi?”

Defendant carried a large hammer in his right hand and several white, plastic zip ties in his left hand. Defendant then repeated, “Where’s Nancy? Where’s Nancy?”

Fact #3 : Paul Pelosi Called 9-1-1 In Front Of David DePape

Paul Pelosi managed to make his way to his bathroom, where his phone was charging. He grabbed his phone and called 9-1-1, putting the phone on speaker.

This is an important point – DePape was standing just three feet away, holding a large hammer, gesturing to him to get off the phone. So Pelosi had to alert the dispatcher without clearly calling for help.

Think about how difficult it was – he had to remain on the phone, and keep DePape calm, while speaking in code to alert the dispatcher to the danger he was facing.

Fact #4 : Paul Pelosi Said He Did Not Know David DePape

When Paul Pelosi told the dispatcher that a “gentleman just uh came into the house uh and he wants to wait for my wife to come home“, she asked him if he knew the person.

Pelosi said “he did not“, and that “the man was telling him not to do anything“.

Fact #5 : Police Dispatcher Audio Was Mischaracterised

The police audio clip, recorded at 2:28 AM local time, is being mischaracterised as evidence that Paul Pelosi called David DePape a friend.

The (male) operator  can be heard saying that the caller stated that “there is a male in his home and he is going to wait for his wife“.

The (male) operator also said that “he doesn’t know who the man is, but he [DePape] advised that his name is David, and that he is a friend“.

At that point, the (female) 9-1-1 dispatcher, Heather Grives, realised that the call was suspicious and immediately dispatched the police to the Pelosi residence as an emergency.

Fact #6 : David DePape Identified Himself As A Friend

So how do we really know that the (male) operator was referring to DePape, and not Pelosi?

Now, this is where it gets interesting – it was DePape who identified himself to the dispatcher as “David“, and it was DePape who called himself “a friend of theirs“.

Remember – Paul Pelosi’s phone was on speaker mode, and both he and DePape can hear the conversation, and speak to the dispatcher.

The dispatcher, Heather Grives, then asked for the man’s name and the man responded, “My name is David.

When the dispatcher asked who David is, Mr. Pelosi said, “I don’t know,” but David said, “I’m a friend of theirs.

Mr. Pelosi then confirmed with the dispatcher that he did not know the man. “He’s telling me I am being very lazy, so I’ve gotta to stop talking to you, okay?”

When the dispatcher offered to stay on the line with Mr. Pelosi to make sure everything is okay, Mr. Pelosi said, “No, he wants me to get the hell off the phone.” The call ended.
