DePape calls local newsroom, apologizes for unsuccessful stand against tyrannical politicians

On Friday, the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office publicly released a selection of audio and video recordings previously introduced as evidence against David DePape, who is charged in the Oct. 28, 2022, assault with a hammer on Paul Pelosi, the husband of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

That same day, just hours later, DePape called a local news station to share an “important message” in which he admitted to what he is accused of having done and apologized for not having done more to deliver his version of accountability to corrupt and dishonest politicians, the Conservative Brief reported.

The exceedingly odd phone call would seemingly cement his guilt in the grievous physical assault on Paul Pelosi and confirm the allegation that his real target that fateful night had been former Speaker Pelosi.

DePape says “You’re welcome” for standing against “tyranny”

KTVU reported Friday that, just hours after audio and video recordings of the Oct. 28 incident at the Pelosi residence had been publicly released, the newsroom had received an “unexpected” call from DePape in the San Francisco County jail, where he is being held without bail while awaiting trial.

Depape’s conversation with reporter Amber Lee, who had reached out previously to DePape for comment on his arrest, lasted a little more than five minutes and was recorded at his request in order to deliver his “important message” to the American people.

“Now that you all have seen the bodycam footage, I have an important message for everyone in America,” DePape said. “You’re welcome.”

“Freedom and liberty isn’t dying — it’s being killed, systematically and deliberately. The people killing it have names and addresses. So I got their names and addresses so I could pay them a little visit, have a heart-to-heart chat about their bad behavior,” he continued. “The tree of liberty needs watering, it needs men of valor. Patriots willing to put their own lives on the line to stand in opposition to tyranny.”

DePape is “sorry” that he “didn’t get more of them”

“I would also like to apologize,” DePape said. “I want to apologize to everyone. I messed up. What I did was really bad.”

“I’m so sorry — I didn’t get more of them,” he continued. “It’s my own fault. No one else is to blame. I should’ve come better prepared.”

DePape then launched into a rant about how his efforts to expose government corruption were “silenced” online by both the government and “private industry” working on behalf of the “ruling class” working to impose “fascism” on the working class, and how he had “more to say” once he was able to transfer the information from his old website to a “new site out of the reach of tyrannical global fascists” and their regime of censorship.

Audio and video recordings released

As noted, that phone call came shortly after the San Francisco DA’s office, in response to a court order, had released the bodycam footage of the officers who initially responded to the incident at the Pelosi home and witnessed DePape strike Pelosi with a hammer.

In addition to the bodycam footage, according to Fox News, the DA’s office also released Capitol Police surveillance camera footage of DePape breaking into the Pelosi residence, audio of Pelosi’s 911 call prior to the violent assault, and audio of DePape’s initial interview with police following his arrest.

All of that had previously been played at a preliminary hearing in December but prosecutors had refused to release the recordings to the public, which prompted a lawsuit by a coalition of media outlets to demand the release that won a favorable ruling from a local judge.

If there had ever been any doubt about DePape’s apparent guilt or anti-government beliefs, those have certainly been confirmed now by the recorded evidence as well as his own admission in the statement to the local news outlet.
