San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins refuses releasing video footage of Paul Pelosi’s attack, fueling conspiracy and cover-up claims.
Members of the Pelosi family have reportedly been shown portions of the video and the 911 call requesting help from Paul Pelosi. It is unclear what Jenkins is trying to keep secret because the footage will not be withheld from the defense team.
The Conservative Brief further reported:
The San Francisco District Attorney is shooting down “public interest” in releasing the police bodycam footage and the 911 call from the night of the attack against Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. However, members of the Pelosi family were given the opportunity to see and listen to the footage.
“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.
U.S. Capitol Police have surveillance cameras to monitor Pelosi’s home in San Francisco, California. However, a new report alleges that the officers who were supposed to be watching those cameras missed the break-in that resulted in Paul Pelosi being assaulted in his home.
According to The Washington Post, officers in Washington, D.C., monitoring security feeds were not aware that anything was wrong at Pelosi’s home until cameras recorded several squad cars outside the home.
The cameras watching Pelosi’s home were among 1,800 monitored by the Capitol Police, the report said. When the Capitol Police checked the recordings from before officers arrived, they saw an intruder breaking glass and entering Pelosi’s home, the Post reported.
