Trump Promotes Baseless Conspiracy Theory In Pelosi Attack
Former President Donald Trump added to the narrative some conservatives have been touting since Paul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was attacked with a hammer in his San Francisco home last Friday.
“Wow, it’s — weird things going on in that household in the last couple of weeks. Probably, you and I are better off not talking about it. The glass it seems was broken from the inside to the out so it wasn’t a break-in, it was a breakout. I don’t know, you hear the same things I do,” Trump said during an appearance on the Chris Stigall show on Tuesday morning.
“It’s a lot of bad stuff and I’m not a fan of Nancy Pelosi, but what’s going on there is very sad,” Trump added. “The whole thing is crazy, and if there’s even a little bit of truth to what’s being said. The window was broken in and it was strange the cops were standing there practically from the moment it all took place. So, you’re going to have to explain that to your audience, including me.”

Officials have publicly contradicted Trump’s statement, saying there was a break-in. They also explained that police were on the scene quickly because Paul Pelosi called 911 while the man, now identified as 42-year-old David DePape, was breaking into the house.
Law enforcement has gone on record denying other conspiracy theories that have arisen in the past few days, including that Paul Pelosi and DePape knew each other and had some kind of prior relationship. Officials say that is not the case.
