Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
Okay. Let me give you just some of the highlights from the affidavit.
The important part of the affidavit. This is the story now from the police. That Paul Pelosi had a break-in at his house, and they arrested this guy named DePape.
And he spilled his guts. He sang like a bird. As soon as they read him his Miranda Rights, he's what he said. DePape says he pulled a hammer from Pelosi's hand and swung the hammer, striking Pelosi in the head.
Now, I want to go back just a little bit here, because I need you to hear what the police said at first.
At 2:31 a.m. San Francisco Police Department, the Officer Colby Willems responded to the Pelosi residence, knocked on the front door.
Now, listen to this.
Because this is odd. When the door was opened, Pelosi and DePape were both holding a hammer with one hand and DePape had his other hand, holding on to Pelosi's firearm.
Pelosi greeted the officers. Now, wait a minute.
Hang on just a second. First of all, what do you mean the door was opened?
Who opened the door? Was Stretch Armstrong there? What happened? Who opened the door?
And when they opened it, Pelosi and DePape were both holding a hammer with one hand. DePape had his other, holding on to Pelosi's forearm.
So we know it couldn't be DePape that opened the door. And, again, unless Pelosi is Stretch Armstrong, who opened the door?
Pelosi greeted the officers. Hey, how are you doing? The officers asked, what was going on? DePape responded that everything was good. Officers then asked Pelosi and DePape to drop the hammer. Here's the affidavit now: DePape pulled a hammer from Pelosi's hand, swung the hammer, striking Pelosi in the head.
Officers immediately went inside, and were able to restrain DePape. While the officers were restraining DePape, Pelosi appeared to be unconscious on the ground. Officers removed a cell phone, cash, clipper cards, and an unidentified card from DePape's right shorts pocket. So he wasn't in underpants. He was in shorts. DePape provided officers his first and last name, after officers asked DePape had ID on him. DePape said, yeah, it might be in my backpack on the back porch. He later stated. My backpack is near the broken glass, dudes.
When officers removed DePape from Pelosi's residence, police body worn camera footage showed a glass door, that appeared to be laminated glass, broken near the door handle. San Francisco police department uncovered zip ties in the Pelosi bedroom, and also near the hallway near the front door of the Pelosi residence. In addition, in addition, law enforcement searched DePape's backpack, at the Pelosi residence. They found among other things, a roll of tape. White rope. One hammer of. One pair of rubber and cloth gloves. And one journal. So there were two hammers, but one was in the backpack.
Witness statements, San Francisco Police Officer Colby Willems was able to interview a witness, who saw an individual all in black, carrying a large black bag on his back, walking near the Pelosi residence, where witness one was parked.
Okay. So hang on just a second. So if he was all dressed in black, did he put black face on his legs?
Because we just found out he was wearing shorts.
STU: I -- I -- well, you could be dressed in black. And have your very white skin showing.
GLENN: Yeah. It would be weird.
Witness number one, was working private security and at an address nearby.
Witness one had heard what sounded like a banging on either the door or the car, and heard sirens within a minute or two. Pelosi was interviewed by the police officer, Adrienne Stark, in the ambulance during the transport to San Francisco General Hospital.
Pelosi stated, he had never seen DePape before. Pelosi was asleep, when he came into his bedroom. And stated, he wanted to talk to Nancy. When Pelosi told him that Nancy was not there. He just told them, well, we'll just sit and wait.
When he then said, Nancy is not going to be home for several days, DePape reiterated, he would wait. Pelosi was unable to go into the bathroom, in which he was able to call 911.
He stated when the officers arrived, that was when DePape struck him with a hammer.
In subsequent interview with law enforcement officers, he said, that the hammer did not belong to the Pelosi family.
In a Mirandized and recorded interviews by San Francisco Police, DePape stated, he was going to hold Nancy hostage and talk to her. If Nancy were to tell DePape the truth, he would let her go.
GLENN: If she lied, he was going to break her kneecaps. DePape was certain that Nancy would not have told the truth. In the course of the interview, DePape articulated he viewed Nancy as the leader of the pack of lies, told by the Democratic Party. DePape also later explained that by breaking Nancy's kneecaps, she would then have to be wheeled into Congress, which would show other members of Congress, there were consequences to actions. DePape also explained generally, that he wanted to use Nancy to lure another individual, to DePape. DePape stated, that he broke into the house, through the back door, which was a difficult task, and requires the use of a hammer. DePape stated that Pelosi was in bed, appeared surprised by DePape.
STU: Yeah. I'm sure.
GLENN: Yeah. DePape told Pelosi to wake up. DePape told Pelosi that he was looking for Nancy. Pelosi responded, she wasn't present. Pelosi asked how they could resolve the situation.
And let's see. And what DePape wanted to do. He stated, he wanted to tie DePape up. So DePape could go to sleep.
As he was pretty tired, because he had to carry a backpack to the residence.
Doesn't that seem like your average hippie? Yeah. I had to walk up all these hills. I'm sleepy. You keep your eye out for the Coppers, while I take a nap.
Around this time, DePape started taking out twist ties from his pocket, so he could restrain Pelosi.
Pelosi moved towards another part of the house, but DePape stopped him. Together they went back to the bedroom. While talking with each other, Pelosi went into the bathroom, where he grabbed a phone to call 911.
He said DePape said, he felt like Pelosi's actions compelled him to respond. He remembered thinking, there was no way police were going to forget about that phone call. DePape explained, he did not leave, after Pelosi's call to 911. Because much like the American Founding Fathers with the British, he was fighting against tyranny without an option of surrender.
Okay. Now, here's the interesting thing: DePape stated that they went down stairs to the front door. The police arrived and knocked on the door. And Pelosi ran over, to open it.
Pelosi then grabbed on to DePape's hammer, which was in DePape's hand. At this point in the interview, he repeated that DePape did not plan to surrender, and he would go through Pelosi.
Okay. Wait. Why would you go back to the hammer? Police are there. Why would you go back to the hammer. That doesn't make any sense.
There's something wrong with the door thing. I don't know what it is. And it might just be an error somewhere.
But there's something wrong with that.
STU: We should eventually know. We should see the video. Right?
GLENN: We should see the video. We should see the video.
Now, when he's talking about Founding Fathers.
That's weird. Because remember that thing we fixed after 9/11. When people overstay their Visas, we kick them out right away. So we know who's here. Yeah, and Department of Homeland Security. That's what they do.
This guy, long-time overstay. He's a Canadian. He's an illegal Canadian from Canada. So he's really into our Founding Fathers?
This hippie, that has Black Lives Matter, on his -- on his house.
STU: An interesting profile of a person, I'll tell you that.
GLENN: It sure is. It sure is.
My guess is, he's crazy. But I just want to point out, how good it is of the media. You know, they haven't figured out the January 6th pipe bomber.
Can't find him. Don't know where he is. Don't know who he is. What?
Yeah. We have video, but what are we going to do with video?
I mean, it's not like we have facial recognition or anything like that. We couldn't. He's not on the phone at the time. There's no way we could triangulate, and find out, you know, where he was, who he was, by just using a phone like that.
Of course we haven't found the Supreme Court leaker. A single one of Epstein's clients. We don't know the motive of the Las Vegas shooter.
But Paul Pelosi, that midnight visitor. Man, they knew he was a Republican, that fast. And it was -- it's good to know. It's good to know. By the way, the mainstream media, here's the problem: The mainstream media picks and chooses. If it was -- if it was you know fair and honest and balanced and they told the truth about everything. You know you wouldn't have this argument.
But you know the right-wing is out of control. It's weird, because I don't think it was the ones who was responsible for burning cities down.
And hundreds of attacks on Republicans. So, I mean, I don't know if, you know, this, but there are 639 receipts for their violence. And mass shooting.
There was the time that Jane Fonda promoted kidnapping, caging, and raping Barron Trump. I love that one. That was a favorite. They attacked Roger Stone's handicapped wife, while walking a dog.
Vandalized the homes of political opponents, tried to kick in the door of Tucker Carlson.
Journalist that stabbed two Trump supporters. The home of a Trump supporter that was bombed.
They drove through a crowd of Trump supporters. They've left dead animals, and threats outside of Republican homes.
They've threatened to burn down the homes of Trump supporters. Shot at Trump supporters. Fired a gun at a march.
Beat a 77-year-old for wearing a MAGA hat. Threatened Republicans on Twitter, every day. Sent Ricen to Trump. Taught leftists to hate students.
They've defaced property of Trump supporters. They egged children at a Trump rally. Teachers threatened death on G.O.P. They've beaten a 12-year-old boy, for a Trump sign.
Beat a woman for wearing a Trump hat. They've destroyed property. We have 300 stories like that. Just thought I would -- you know, but that -- real quick, that New York Post hacker last Friday. The guy who wrote Rufo. He took over the feed of the New York Post.
He worked at the New York Post. He's apologized. He said, oh, man. It was just the utmost betrayal of my people. I pretended to hack into the New York Post website. And you know it was my job. But I let my stupidity get the best of me. But I want you to know, I deserve to get fired. But it wasn't politically motivated. Uh-huh.
Let me just give you a few of the post. Rufo, we must destroy and imprison union teachers. Zeldin. Eric Adams is New York City's fried chicken eating monkey.
Governor Abbott. I'll order Border Patrol to start slaughtering illegals. Zeldin, I'll rape and batter Hochul's sorry ass. The New York Post, he also posted, we must assassinate AOC for America.
Divine. We must murder Joe and Hunter Biden. New York Post, that he posted -- Frank, I'll beat up the sorry ass Burgin bitches like Gotheimer and his family.
I don't know why people say that those were politically motivated.
STU: I mean, maybe there's the slightest hint of politics involved.
But it's difficult to detect, unless you're really a trained observer.
GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. I could go on. I have 135 attacks on pro-life people. Just between May 3rd and September 24th.
But, remember, it is the Republicans, that are conspiracy theorists. One more thing. Just one more thing. I'm sorry.
Kathy Hochul, has come out yesterday. With a very important thing. She says, that the people who mention you know anything to do with the race being fixed. Data deniers. And conspiracy theorists.
She said, these are master manipulators. And you know there's a conspiracy that they're pedaling now, that they -- there's this conspiracy going all across America, to convince people, that in democratic states, they're not safe.
Wow. What a conspiracy, that is. Who is the conspiracy theorist?
