The Paul Pelosi attack conspiracy theory just got a lot stranger

The Biden Department of Justice has some explaining to do.

Police body camera footage of the attack on Paul Pelosi refutes what federal officials had claimed happened. It’s the latest revelation of what has turned into an extraordinarily bizarre coverage of conflicting stories about the attack on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s husband.

There are contradictory accounts surrounding the details of who opened the door to the house on the night of the attack when San Francisco police arrived at Pelosi’s house. Biden’s Department of Justice claimed, according to a federal indictment filed earlier this week, that “two officers opened the door.” However, the San Francisco district attorney’s office specified that Paul Pelosi opened the door with his left hand in a different court document filed earlier in November.

For there to be multiple accounts of such a small but important detail is concerning.

The incident approaches conspiracy theory levels because NBC News correspondent Miguel Almaguer was suspended for accurately reporting what the San Francisco DA claimed happened. And indeed, Almaguer’s account was not only a faithful rendering of the San Francisco DA’s account, but it was also faithful to the truth.

Pelosi did indeed answer the door upon police arrival. So why did the Biden DOJ claim differently?

“After a ‘knock and announce,’ the front door was opened by Mr. Pelosi. The 82-year-old did not immediately declare an emergency or tried to leave his home but instead began walking several feet back into the foyer toward the assailant and away from police,” Almaguer stated. “It’s unclear if the 82-year-old was already injured or what his mental state was, say sources.”

NBC Bay Area reported that that night’s body cam video supports the DA’s account and refutes the Biden DOJ’s false account. It shows either a startling lack of incompetence by the Department of Justice, or an attempted cover-up of a minor detail.

The fact that there are conflicting accounts of the incident, and that a reporter was actually punished for reporting the truth, should raise red flags.

Some people don’t want it known that Paul Pelosi voluntarily answered the door after a man with a hammer had viciously attacked him. Now, all that’s left to find out is….well, why?
