DA Shoots Down ‘Public Interest’ In Releasing Bodycam Footage Of Pelosi Attack

Published on

The District Attorney of San Francisco opposes the release of the police bodycam footage and 911 call from the night of the attack on Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. However, members of the Pelosi family were permitted to watch and listen to the video.

“That meeting is happening today, so limited members are able to view that footage so that they can have certain questions in their mind answered. But it’s a very limited number of family members, and that should be going on as we speak,” San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins told CNN.

“For us, revealing that evidence through the media is just not what we think is appropriate. We want to make sure that this individual is held accountable for these egregious acts. For us, we’re going to make sure that we limit the evidence as much as possible in order to get that done,” she added.

“Without specifying which specific members were given access to the evidence Wednesday or any other details of what they might have seen, Jenkins defended law enforcement’s decision not to immediately release that material to the public. She said no to host Wolf Blitzer’s question about whether there is a public interest in releasing these materials, stressing that her focus is protecting the investigation and the success of the prosecution,” the Washington Examiner reported.

“The alleged assailant David DePape, 42, pleaded not guilty to a slew of charges Jenkins’s office lodged against him Tuesday, including attempted murder, residential burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, false imprisonment of an elder, and threats to a public official. He could face between 13 years to life in prison on the charges, per Jenkins,” the outlet added.


Capitol Police monitor Pelosi’s residence in San Francisco, California, with surveillance cameras. However, according to a new revelation, the cops who were meant to be monitoring these cameras missed the break-in that resulted in Paul Pelosi’s home being attacked.

The Washington Post reports that cops in Washington, D.C., watching security feeds did not realize anything was amiss at Pelosi’s house until cameras captured six squad cars parked outside the residence.

According to the article, the cameras monitoring Pelosi’s residence were among 1,800 monitored by the Capitol Police. The Capitol Police reportedly observed an intruder shattering glass and entering Pelosi’s residence after reviewing footage from before cops arrived.

CNBC reported:

The camera is one of about 1,800 at the Capitol complex and around the country that the Capitol Police have the ability to monitor. The Washington Post first reported no one was actively watching the camera feed when the break-in occurred early Friday morning. CONTINUE READING…
