Soon, members of Paul Pelosi’s family, likely including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, will be able to examine body camera footage of the incident that left Paul Pelosi hospitalized with a cracked skull last week. The video has not yet been released to the public.
CNN reported on Tuesday night, citing a person familiar with the situation, that the family will get access to the bodycam footage and 911 audio before to its distribution to the public.
Numerous right-leaning pundits have placed doubt on the SFPD’s version of events, including former Fox News personality Megyn Kelly, who stated on her SiriusXM program on Monday, “I know enough to smell a rat.”
“I feel like at a minimum, the SFPD has egg on its face, because even under the most generous story to Paul Pelosi and to the San Francisco police, they were in the house when this guy attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer,” Kelly said.
Michael Savage, a conservative radio commentator, asked to examine the bodycam tape and posed multiple questions regarding the alleged assault.
why won't the police release the Bodycam footage? how does a stranger get into a ft.knox level mansion without triggering an alarm? who at this level of gov't does not have 24/7 security? why was the glass broken out ward not inward?

The film is anticipated to show David DePape, age 42, hitting Paul Pelosi with a hammer as Pelosi opens his front door for approaching police officers. According to reports, he persuaded DePape to allow him use the toilet, where he placed a cryptic 911 call that prompted police to respond to his residence.
An affidavit claims Paul Pelosi called 911 at 2:23 a.m. and “stated words to the effect of there is a male in the home and that the male is going to wait for Pelosi’s wife,” according to CNN. “Pelosi further conveyed that he does not know who the male is. The male said his name is David.”
The responding cops claim to have watched DePape and Paul Pelosi wrestling for control of a hammer, with DePape finally prevailing and using the weapon to strike Paul Pelosi on the head. After the incident, officers allegedly went in to tackle DePape.
“DePape pulled the hammer from Pelosi’s hand and swung the hammer, striking Pelosi in the head,” the affidavit reportedly read. “Officers immediately went inside and were able to restrain DePape. While officers were restraining DePape, Pelosi appeared to be unconscious on the ground.”
According to reports, DePape entered the home through a glass door. Images and reports suggest that DePape crushed it with a hammer.

According to the complaint, DePape had intended to abduct Speaker Pelosi and had threatened to smash “her kneecaps” if she lied to him.
Upon entering the apartment, DePape allegedly said, “Where’s Nancy?” according to first reports of the incident.
