Law Enforcement and Media Suppressed Hunter’s Laptop—Should We Trust Their Pelosi Story?

In the wee hours of October 28, not long after San Francisco’s gay bars had closed for the night, something strange happened at Nancy Pelosi’s house. According to mainstream media reports, a MAGA-supporting “conspiracy theorist” named David DePape used a hammer to break the glass in Pelosi’s back door. He then entered the home and barged into the bedroom where Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul was sleeping. “Where’s Nancy?” DePape demanded. Paul Pelosi explained that Nancy wouldn’t be home for several days. DePape said he would sit and wait. When DePape let his captive use the bathroom (such a considerate kidnapper!) Pelosi used a cell phone to call 911. Minutes later, the two went downstairs together and Pelosi opened the door for police—then grabbed the hammer in DePape’s hand, lost the ensuing struggle, and took a near-lethal hammer blow to the head as the police barged in.
According to the federal complaint filed two days later, DePape told police his plan had been “to hold Nancy hostage and talk to her” then “let her go” if she told the truth—but if she lied he would break her kneecaps. DePape expected the latter outcome, since, he said, Pelosi is “the leader of the pack of lies told by the Democratic Party.” After he kneecapped her, DePape told the feds, Pelosi would have to be wheeled into Congress.
The pre-Halloween headline-grabbing story of a deranged conspiracy theorist first plotting to cripple the Speaker of the House, then fracturing her husband’s skull in a botched kidnapping, is as bizarre as it is horrific. Coming just 11 days before the midterm elections, the incident seems geared to evoking sympathy for Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats, while vilifying their “crazy conspiracy-theory-promoting MAGA enemies.”
But is the account transmitted by law enforcement and mainstream media true? And even if it is, could there be more to the story?
