U.S. Capitol Police officers were “not watching” the live security camera feed outside Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) San Francisco residence during the time a man allegedly broke into the home and attacked Paul Pelosi, according to reports.
Despite having 24/7 video surveillance outside the home, officers were mysteriously not watching it while “very Left” 42-year-old David DePape allegedly forced his way into Paul Pelosi’s bedroom while dressed in his underwear.
Officers from the U.S. Capitol Police monitor a live feed of many cameras, which include surveillance of the capitol complex.
They also monitor some points away from the Capitol, including the Pelosi residence.
However, sources reportedly told Fox News that police didn’t see the semi-nude hammer-wielding attacker break into the home and only became aware of the incident when cops arrived on the scene.
According to the sources, an officer was monitoring the feeds and saw police lights on a dark street outside the Pelosis’ residence.
When going through recordings of the surveillance footage, the officer saw the alleged attack on October 28, according to the report.
People briefed on the incident reportedly said police saw DePape allegedly strike Paul Pelosi.
The security detail traveling with Nancy Pelosi wasn’t at the San Francisco residence when the incident happened, as the House speaker wasn’t in the city.
Sources tell Fox News that Capitol Police pay less attention to security cameras when one of its protectees is away.
If the officers were watching the feed monitoring in real-time, the break-in would have been seen.
When asked twice during a press conference if there was a security alarm system in place at the Pelosis’ residence, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins didn’t answer the question.
“There was no security present,” Jenkins said, responding to the question from a reporter.
DePape faces several felony charges in relation to the incident, which left Paul Pelosi severely injured.
Paul Pelosi had to undergo surgery to repair a skull fracture in addition to other injuries.
The charges include attempted murder, residential burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, and elder abuse, among others.
DePape pleaded not guilty to the state-level charges on Monday and also faces federal charges in relation to the incident.
DePape allegedly broke into the residence through a glass door in the rear of the Pelosis’ house and entered a bedroom where Paul Pelosi was sleeping, according to Jenkins.
Paul Pelosi attempted to dial 911 in the couple’s in-home elevator but was stopped by DePape, adding that he was able to escape to a bathroom and call 911.
Police said that when officers arrived, they observed Paul Pelosi and DePape both struggling over a hammer.
When the police officers gave an order for the to drop the hammer, DePape began attacking Paul Pelosi, according to police.
Police said that DePape struck Paul Pelosi with a hammer at least one time.
DePape brought kidnapping supplies with him to the Pelosi’s residence such as zip ties, as well as at least two hammers, according to Jenkins.
Jenkins claimed that the attack appears to be politically motivated but didn’t provide any evidence.
The suspect allegedly demanded to talk to “Nancy” during the attack, referring to the House speaker, according to an affidavit.
He reportedly said he wanted to speak to “Nancy” after the police arrived.
