Fox News host Jesse Watters smells a rat and is demanding to see the mugshot of Nancy Pelosi’s drunk-driving husband Paul Pelosi.
As Slay News previously reported, Paul Pelosi was recently arrested for causing a car crash while drunk-driving in Napa County, California.
However, Watters says he thinks there’s “more to the story.”
“We have already told you the Pelosis are about as corrupt as families can be,” the host said on his Fox show “Jesse Watters Primetime.”
“And now the long arm of the law has finally come down on them – but not for what you think.
“Paul Pelosi was arrested this weekend after he blew through a stop sign and slammed his Porsche into a Jeep while Nancy was across the country.
“First of all, have you ever been to a dinner party without your significant other?
“Me neither. I think there’s more to the story.”
He said Paul was returning home to “the Pelosi vineyard, you know – the one valued between 5 and 25 million dollars, where they entertain all their friends and fancy Silicon Valley executives.”
Watters wanted to see the mugshot but curiously it cannot be found.
He said the sheriff “told us the jail had to release it.
“And then the jail said the sheriff’s office had to release it and then one of our producers was told the city council had to release it.
“And then we were directed to the county board of supervisors.
“And then when we called the vice-chair of the board, he said why would we have a mugshot?
“All I know is someone’s going through a lot of trouble to keep this mugshot hidden,” he said.
Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s spokesperson, said after the arrest:
“The Speaker will not be commenting on this private matter which occurred while she was on the East Coast.”
From The AP:
Paul Pelosi, the 82-year-old husband of U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, was arrested this weekend on suspicion of DUI in Northern California, police records showed Sunday.
Paul Pelosi was taken into custody late Saturday in Napa County north of San Francisco, according to a sheriff’s office online booking report.
He could face charges including driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or higher, the report said.
Pelosi’s bail was set for $5,000 for the two misdemeanors, records showed.
No other details were immediately available. California Highway Patrol Officer Andrew Barclay said more information would be released later Sunday.
