The story of the attack on Paul Pelosi just keeps getting stranger.  Excerpt:

There’s some more curious information about the case of the attack on Paul Pelosi in his home in San Francisco.

The Director of News for the San Francisco Chronicle, Demian Bulwa posted some links to the audio calls that were made to police regarding the incident. According to Bulwa, the suspect supposedly said he was waiting for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in the home. “RP” references Paul Pelosi.

“RP stated there’s a male in the home and that he’s going to wait for his wife,” the audio says. “RP stated that he doesn’t know who the male is but he advised that his name is David and that he is a friend.”

A friend?

Now I’d like to say without reservation that I’m glad Paul Pelosi was not seriously injured and wish him an uneventful recovery.  Any attack like this on an elderly person is inexcusable, regardless of the victim’s politics or relations.

But with that said, though, it’s true that the whole thing just keeps getting weirder.  Now there’s a statement on the 911 transcript that David DePape, a “nakedness protestor,” hemp-jewelry maker and chronic homeless drug user, was a “friend” of Paul Pelosi?  Seems a bit off, no?  Even if Mr. Pelosi suspected that DePape was listening, the 911 call alone would have been enough to rouse the worthless invaders ire – as it obviously did.

Why is DePape a “friend?”

Bear in mind also that, Queen Nancy being in residence or otherwise, the Pelosi home doubtlessly has all manner of security, including cameras, alarms and barriers.  How did DePape get in?  I’ve heard a rumor that he got in through a window – really?  A window?  An unbarred window in San Francisco, which has one of the highest rates of residential burglary in the country, and in the home of the person who is, as Speaker of the House, arguably one of the most powerful politicians in the nation?

I ain’t buying it, True Believers.  I suspect the whole story will never come out, but there’s a lot more to this than we’re hearing.
