Pelosi Attacker David DePape's Chilling Call to Local CA News Station

I think it’s safe to say that David DePape, Paul Pelosi’s alleged attacker, has more than a few issues.

We saw the harrowing body cam video where he attacked Pelosi with the hammer, as well as the Capitol Police surveillance video showing how he broke into the Pelosi home. Capitol Police were not monitoring the video at the time because Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was out of town. We also heard the troubling call Paul Pelosi made to a 911 operator.


But DePape also made a wild call to KTVU, a local California news station on Friday, to deliver an “important message.” Now, any attorney would tell you that you shouldn’t prejudice your case by talking about it publicly, especially not saying things that are going to dig a deeper hole for yourself. But DePape has issues, so he doesn’t seem to be concerned about that. He seems more concerned about throwing his crazy thought process out into the public arena, so people know why he did what he did.

It was bizarre. Nobody thanked him, but he said “you’re welcome” for the attack.

Warning: the following video contains graphic and violent images.

While DePape claimed he didn’t want to jeopardize his case, he said “freedom and liberty isn’t dying, it’s being killed systematically and deliberately.” Then he made it worse saying, “people killing it have names and addresses, so I got their names and addresses so I could pay them a little visit…have a heart to heart chat about their bad behavior.”

DePape apologized for not creating more carnage, “I want to apologize to everyone. I messed up. What I did was really bad. I’m so sorry I didn’t get more of them. It’s my own fault. No one else is to blame. I should have come better prepared.” He said he had a website where he’d had a “lot more to say” with 300 pages on it, but that the authorities had taken it down. He said he was trying to set up a new site that wasn’t under the control of “tyrannical global fascists.”


The reporter said that it sounded like he was reading from a “script,” which I thought was an interesting assessment. Why is he reading from a script? Or is that just because of whatever mental issues he has? She said she wasn’t able to ask him more questions or follow up on anything he said.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that’s not going to help his case. But it shows how delusional he is, if he thinks that’s a good thing to him to be saying.
