More questions arise over ‘emotionally disturbed’ illegal alien who reportedly planned to break Nancy Pelosi’s kneecaps

Paul Pelosi’s attacker was evidently “emotionally disturbed” and was a nudist, BLM supporter, illegal alien, and drug addict who had delusions about kidnapping House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, possibly kneecapping her, and wheeling her before Congress.

That’s a lot to unpack but the allegations against David DePape are lengthy and not without merit it would seem. They are equally confusing at this point.

Retired Las Vegas detective Randy Sutton appeared on Fox News host Jesse Watter’s show and revealed more details about the brutal attack.

“There’s a great deal that we don’t know clearly. There’s a couple of things in reading the affidavit that is very interesting. You know, we’re dealing with a suspect who is clearly, you know, a few, a few, a few trees… a few branches free of a tree. And he’s clearly an EDP. An emotionally disturbed person with an extensive history. Both a criminal history and a mental history as well. So, the question you posed earlier about why is he still in the country when he was an illegal alien… that’s really a valid question and it shows that the Newsom sanctuary state policy is leading to more and more crimes as this is a perfect example,” he contended.

“Now, in the affidavit, there was something very interesting… you asked about the glass being on both sides. According to what I read, not only was these panes of glass but there was film on the glass which is often used to make it more difficult to break in. So, the fact that there is glass on both sides… however, I’ve investigated a ton of burglaries and forcible entries using glass… that’s not that unusual quite honestly, Jesse. When you smash out something especially when there’s something, when there’s film attached to it, it doesn’t just fall in one place, so I’m not really concerned about that,” Sutton continued.

“It’s interesting that the affiant for this has only been an FBI agent since 2019. It kind of surprises me that they would assign such a high-profile case…” he added and then Watters cut in.

“Wait a second. You’re saying this woman is brand new? They put a freshman FBI agent in charge of one of the biggest federal attempted murder cases in years?” Watters asked.


Sutton confirmed that was the case. But there’s a lot more going on with the suspect and the case in general making it even more bizarre.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson cited Fox News reporter Bill Melugin who pointed out that DePape is an illegal alien from Canada.

In fact, Carlson gave one of the most detailed descriptions of the assailant to date: “So, to restate, the perpetrator in this violent crime against Paul Pelosi is a mentally ill, drug-addicted illegal alien nudist who takes hallucinogens and lives in a hippie school bus in Berkley with a BLM banner and a Pride flag out front.”

The facts of the case seem to keep changing as well. First, both men were in their underwear, now some say both were clothed. At one point, a third person was involved. That’s no longer the case. Some claim Paul Pelosi said DePape was a friend, and other claims it was a ploy. It’s very confusing and many facts have yet to come out.

According to multiple media accounts, the assailant is said to have broken through the back sliding glass door and entered Pelosi’s bedroom where he was sleeping. He was blocked from using the phone but was eventually able to get into the bathroom and call 911. Other accounts claim that the police came to conduct a wellness check.

Paul Pelosi was allegedly hit several times with a hammer by DePape in front of officers and had to have surgery for a fractured skull. He’s expected to fully recover.

He reportedly had at least two hammers, zip ties, and other kidnapping supplies with him. It definitely appears that the Pelosis were targeted and reports claim that DePape demanded to know, “Where is Nancy?”

DePape’s neighbors called him “odd” which is saying something for San Francisco. They also claim he meant to “traumatize Nancy Pelosi,” according to Fox News.

A federal affidavit that was filed on Monday claimed that DePape told police he initially intended to hold Speaker Pelosi hostage and interrogate her.

“If Nancy were to tell DePape the ‘truth,’ he would let her go, and if she ‘lied,’ he was going to break ‘her kneecaps,’” the affidavit stated.

“DePape also later explained that by breaking Nancy’s kneecaps, she would then have to be wheeled into Congress, which would show other members of Congress that there were consequences to actions,” the court document stated.

DePape is facing a ton of charges including attempted murder, residential burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, and elder abuse, among others according to District Attorney Brooke Jenkins. He could face up to life in prison for his crimes but he could also wind up in a psychiatric facility.
