Who is David DePape & What Really Happened in Paul Pelosi’s House?

By Dr. Rich Swier

The legacy media and Biden are all in trying to pin the attack on Paul Pelosi by David DePape on Trump supporters. Biden compared the attack on Paul Pelosi to the J6 Save America Rally in Washington, D.C.

Now that’s the kind of propaganda being pushed far and wide by Democrats and their legacy media outlets.

QUESTION: Does this narrative make any sense at all?

It is early in this case but there are some things that we do know from the San Francisco Police Department.

Let’s look at the facts and some other theories on what happened on Friday night at 2:30 a.m. PST in the Pelosi house.

Who is David Depape

While doing research on David DePape we came across this comment on a forum,

Makes hemp jewelry, lives in Berkeley, nude protestor….yea that every right wing extremist megamagarepublican hobbies

The details of this attack are unusual. According to MSNBC’s Andrew Blankstein, Tom Winter, Antonio Planas and Tim Stelloh,

Police Chief William Scott said during a Friday news conference that officers arrived at the Pelosi home for a well-being check shortly before 2:30 a.m. PT. Police then witnessed an attack on Paul Pelosi.

What is a well-being check?

According to San Francisco’s ABC7 News,

One of the highest number of calls San Francisco police officers respond to are “well-being checks,” according to the city’s data close to 18,000 calls in 2019.

MSNBC’s Blankstein, Winter, Planas and Stelloh then reported,

Both DePape and Paul Pelosi held a hammer moments before a violent confrontation, Scott said.

“The suspect pulled the hammer away from Mr. Pelosi and violently assaulted him with it,” he said. “Our officers immediately tackled the suspect, disarmed him, took him into custody, requested emergency backup and rendered medical aid.”

So, Paul Pelosi had the hammer first and then David DePape took the hammer from Pelosi and began beating him with it.


Here’s one theory as to the why,

David Depape tells investigators that he and Paul Pelosi were engaging in gay sex and an argument ensued over drugs. Pelosi’s are refusing to turn over surveillance video of their home fueling more speculation of homosexuality at the home. Depape has arrests for male prostitution

While we cannot confirm that Paul and David were doing the nasty, what we can say is that there was a confrontation and both men had during the confrontation held the hammer that inflicted physical damage to Pelosi, according to the San Francisco Police Chief and eyewitness report of the officers who were called to the Pelosi house for a well-being check.

There are more questions to ask given Paul Pelosi’s recent run in with the California Highway Patrol (CHP) on a Napa roadway for driving while intoxicated. Watch this CBS Sacrament video report with CHP dash camera of Paul Pelosi.

According to the New York Post’s ,

The man accused of attacking Paul Pelosi with a hammer had been living in a school bus weeks before the attack, neighbors said.

Those who know David DePape, 42, told The Post they’ve seen him living in a yellow school bus parked in front of the Berkeley home of his ex, San Francisco pro-nudist activist Gypsy Taub, with whom he shares three children.

“He usually kept to himself,” neighbor Ryan La Coste told The Post. “He would just give us a blank stare when we would walk by. We tried to stay clear of him. … No one knew he was here because he would be on the bus or he just didn’t communicate.”

[ … ]

DePape’s neighbors, Margarita and Julio Gonzalez, said he used to live in the Victorian home with Taub and the children but at some point, began staying off-and-on in the two dilapidated school buses on the property.

“He is homeless … but I never seen him being violent,” Margarita Gonzalez told The Post. “He never had work. In the beginning when he lived with (Taub), he just stayed inside the home and she was the one who did the shopping and everything.”

When she heard about Pelosi’s attack, Margarita said she also was shocked her neighbor had been accused.

“I was surprised because I never saw him aggressive,” Margarita Gonzalez said. “I don’t think [the attack on Pelosi] was something personal. … Maybe there’s a mental problem with him.”

Reporter Michael Shellenberger wrote on his website,

But DePape’s politics have little rhyme or reason. In past years DePape shared a post about Stephen Colbert’s 2006 roast of President George W. Bush at the White House Correspondents dinner; linked to videos of Disney films altered to make it look like the characters were swearing; and claimed, “Jesus is the anti-Christ” — not exactly a litany of right-wing tropes.

And, as I discovered yesterday, DePape lived with a notorious local nudist in a Berkeley home, complete with a Black Lives Matter sign in the window and an LGBT rainbow flag, emblazoned with a marijuana symbol, hanging from a tree. A closer look reveals the characteristics of a homeless encampment, or what Europeans call “an open drug scene.” In the driveway, there is a broken-down camper van. On the street is a yellow school bus, which neighbors said DePape occasionally stayed in. Both are filled with garbage typical of such structures in homeless encampments. People come and go from the house and the vehicles, neighbors say, in part to partake in the use of a potent psychedelic drug, ibogaine. [Emphasis added]

What is known to date:

  1. Paul Pelosi drinks to excess and was recently arrested by the California Highway Patrol when his car ran off the road. See video above.
  2. The San Francisco Chronicle identified DePape frolicking nude outside city hall with dozens of others at the 2013 wedding of pro-nudity activist Gypsy Taub, who was marrying another man.
  3. A 2013 article in The Chronicle described David DePape as a “hemp jewelry maker” who lived in a Victorian flat in Berkeley with Taub.
  4. David Depape sells necklaces made of hemp.
  5. David Depape lived in a yellow school bus.
  6. DePape was in the Pelosi home, which is interesting given that she is such a high ranking political figure you would think they had an alarm system.
  7. We don’t have the who, what, where, when and why the DePape/Pelosi confrontation began.
  8. It appears that first Paul Pelosi had hold of the hammer and then DePape took the hammer away from Pelosi and began beating him with it according to the police.
  9. According to the The Western Journal, “When police were sent to the home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul around 2:30 a.m. Friday, they were told there was a man there waiting for Nancy, but he was described on the call as a ‘friend’.”

Police dispatch to Paul Pelosi home:

“RP (reporting person) stated there’s a male in the home and that he’s going to wait for his wife. RP stated that he doesn’t know who the male is but he advised that his name is David and that he is a friend.”

Given the instantaneous response from the media that DePape was a “conspiracy theorist”, posted about QAnon and “racist” remarks and was according to the SF Police “someone with sprawling and contradictory views.”

Clearly it’s to early to tell what really happened on Friday.

David DePape does not fit the profile of a Trump supporter. DePape does fit the profile of a drug user who is down on his luck with a broken relationship who’s living in a broken down yellow bus in San Francisco, California. Beyond that we cannot, for the life of us, understand why the Pelosi house.

As they say time will tell and eventually the truth will reveal itself.
