“The command center has access to approximately 1,800 cameras, allowing us to collect evidence at any time from any camera location, while allowing control center personnel to monitor certain feeds. video,” the USCP said in a statement on Wednesday. “While the President was with her security detail in Washington, DC, cameras in San Francisco were not actively monitored as they are when the President is at the residence.” However, an officer reportedly noticed on-screen police activity, which included police lights outside Pelosi residence and used the live feeds to monitor the response and assist investigators, the statement said. But had officers watched the live feed, the break-in, which led to the assault, would have been noticed, a US news source reported. The USCP has launched an internal security review and is accelerating efforts to strengthen protections for members of Congress while outside of Washington, the statement added. San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins was pressed for answers about the presence of security at the House Speaker’s residence, which Jenkins said “there was no security present”. Early Friday morning, San Francisco police responded to a wellness check at the Pelosi residence, where they found 82-year-old Paul Pelosi and 42-year-old David DePape struggling with a hammer. DePape reportedly took the hammer and hit Pelosi on the head with it before being arrested by police. Pelosi had to undergo surgery to repair a fractured skull in addition to other injuries. Pelosi had called 911 after she was able to escape DePape and go to the bathroom. The USCP first installed security cameras around Pelosi’s home more than eight years ago. And although the Speaker of the House has her own security detail, they traveled with her to Washington, DC this week. Pelosi has received the most death threats of any member of Congress. His home, located in Pacific Heights, a wealthy neighborhood where homes are worth tens of millions of dollars, was the target of protests days before the Jan. 6 Capitol bombings. In one case, protesters spray-painted the speaker’s house and left a pig’s head outside her door. On Tuesday, DePape pleaded not guilty to charges against him, including attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and elder abuse. DePape also faces federal charges of assault and attempted kidnapping of a U.S. official or family member with intent for revenge because of his office. DePape is being held without bond pending a Friday’s hearing to schedule a preliminary and bail hearing, which are likely to be in conjunction, defense attorney Adam Lipson said Tuesday after DePape’s arraignment. *** lies from Washington, DC,” he reportedly said at the time of his arrest. He told investigators he intended to break the Speaker’s kneecaps unless she told the “truth.” He now faces state and federal charges, including attempted murder, burglary and elder abuse, as well as separate federal charges. He pleaded not guilty.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Security cameras operated by the United States Capitol Police (USCP) were functional but unmonitored during the alleged attack on Paul Pelosi, husband of Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, in their San Francisco residence last week, the USCP said. A majority of the speaker’s security had left with her to travel to DC.

“The command center has access to approximately 1,800 cameras, allowing us to collect evidence at any time from any camera location, while allowing control center personnel to monitor certain feeds. video,” the USCP said in a statement on Wednesday. “While the President was with her security detail in Washington, DC, cameras in San Francisco were not actively monitored as they are when the President is at the residence.”

However, an officer reportedly noticed on-screen police activity that included police lights outside the Pelosi residence and used the live feeds to monitor the response and assist investigators, the statement said. But had officers watched the live feed, the break-in, which led to the assault, would have been noticed, a US news source reported.

The USCP has launched an internal security review and is accelerating efforts to strengthen protections for members of Congress while outside of Washington, the statement added.

San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins was pressed for answers about the presence of security at the House Speaker’s residence, which Jenkins said “there was no security present”.

Early Friday morning, San Francisco police responded to a wellness check at the Pelosi residence, where they found 82-year-old Paul Pelosi and 42-year-old David DePape struggling with a hammer. DePape reportedly took the hammer and hit Pelosi on the head with it before being arrested by police. Pelosi had to undergo surgery to repair a fractured skull in addition to other injuries. Pelosi had called 911 after she was able to escape DePape and go to the bathroom.

The USCP first installed security cameras around Pelosi’s home more than eight years ago. And although the Speaker of the House has her own security detail, they traveled with her to Washington, DC this week. Pelosi has received the most death threats of any member of Congress. His home, located in Pacific Heights, a wealthy neighborhood where homes are worth tens of millions of dollars, was the target of protests days before the Jan. 6 Capitol bombings.

In one instance, protesters spray-painted the speaker’s house and left a pig’s head outside his door.

On Tuesday, DePape pleaded not guilty to state-level charges including attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and elder abuse. DePape also faces federal charges of assault and attempted kidnapping of a U.S. official or family member with intent to retaliate because of his office.

DePape is being held without bond ahead of a court hearing on Friday to schedule a preliminary hearing and a bail hearing, which will likely be held jointly, defense attorney Adam Lipson said Tuesday after DePape was arraigned.

DePape had entered the house and was looking for Nancy Pelosi, 82, in an attempt to abduct her because he was “fed up with all the fucking lies coming out of Washington, DC,” he reportedly said at the time of his arrest. He told investigators he intended to break the Speaker’s kneecaps unless she told the “truth”. He now faces state and federal charges, including attempted murder, burglary and elder abuse, as well as separate federal charges. He pleaded not guilty.
