While speaking with the special investigator, DePape, 42, espoused conspiracy theories centered on the Democratic Party and Nancy Pelosi, who was Speaker of the House at the time.
Earlier today, body camera footage showing DePape assaulting Pelosi, a recording of Pelosi speaking to a 911 operator and surveillance footage showing someone identified as DePape breaking into a Pacific Heights home were released.
DePape admitted to being the attacker and described how he broke into the house. He said he believed the Democrats stole the election from Trump. He said he saw Nancy Pelosi as one of the biggest liars in the country.
FOX KTVU told detectives an excerpt of the back-and-forth between DePape. The dialogue has been edited for clarity and length.
Police: Do you know why you are in custody?
I just wanted to make sure you were ok… how did you get there today?
I know exactly what I did.
Is there a reason? Did you think Pelosis did anything to you?
I’m not particularly me. But honestly to the American public. She was the leader of the pack.
how is that
Fucking liars. This is madness. She must be like…(unintelligible) because Trump is in power. What they did was beyond. This is just crazy…. It originated with Hillary. But Pelosi ran lies day in and day out. Pelosi is the person who lies every day on TV.
This is a record crime spree, the Democratic Party.. They are criminals. He was submitting fake evidence to spy on rival campaigns….yes, Trump. …It’s an endless crime spree..until they can steal the election.
What is your purpose? Is it your intention to make her change her ways?
Well, I’m basically going to hold her hostage. And I was going to talk to her.
Do you regret doing this?
No, it had to be done.
But Paul is not the target of the person you attacked. Do you know how many times you hit him?
no clue I turned to him.
[When the police arrived] Why didn’t you just leave?
Like the founding fathers. As he fought against the British, he fought against tyranny. When I left my home, I went to fight against tyranny.
