Asking any questions about the Paul Pelosi attack is enough to get you dragged by the left. So kudos to Megyn Kelly for standing up and calling it like she sees it.
Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly has a lot to say about the attack. In fact, she says, “I know enough to smell a rat.”
During her Sirius XM podcast, Kelly made her case that the attack was probably not politically motivated, given that suspect David DePape is a “lunatic.”
“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.
According to a federal affidavit from first responders, Mr. Pelosi was not struck with a hammer until the first responders were in the residence.
“At 2:31 a.m., San Francisco Police Department (“SFPD”) Officer Colby Wilmes responded to the Pelosi residence, California and knocked on the front door,” the affidavit reads.
“When the door was opened, Pelosi and DEPAPE were both holding a hammer with one hand and DEPAPE had his other hand holding onto Pelosi’s forearm. Pelosi greeted the officers. The officers asked them what was going on. DEPAPE responded that everything was good. Officers then asked Pelosi and DEPAPE to drop the hammer.
“DEPAPE pulled the hammer from Pelosi’s hand and swung the hammer, striking Pelosi in the head. Officers immediately went inside and were able to restrain DEPAPE. While officers were restraining DEPAPE, Pelosi appeared to be unconscious on the ground.”
Kelly pointed out that this does not look good.
“I’m not sure how that happened,” she continued. “How do you have police officers on site and an 82-year-old gets attacked with a hammer in front of you when you have a gun as a police officer?”
“It’s one of the many questions here. As you point out, there are security cameras all over that house. You can see them from the outside – were they turned on?” Kelly asked.
“If not, why not? She’s the speaker of the House,” she added, noting that “far less-known public figures than Nancy Pelosi have taken extra security measures in and around San Francisco, given how high the crime rate is there, it would be insane for them not to have their cameras on.”
Kelly also pointed out that we should see all body cam footage.
“Let’s see it. Let’s see it all,” she said.
“I don’t know what went on, [but] I know enough to smell a rat. There’s something going on here that they’re not telling us. I just don’t know what it is.”
According to a report from CNBC, DePape is facing a number of charges.
