Capitol Police Weren't Watching Pelosi Security Live Feed

  • The Hill

By Jackson Kincaid

In Brief: 

Emerging reports indicate that officers from the U.S. Capitol Police had live video surveillance outside the Pelosi's San Francisco residence, but weren't watching it when David DePape allegedly attacked Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The Background: 

Sources say that Capitol Police pay less attention to security cameras when one of its protectees is away, and the House Speaker wasn't with her husband in San Francisco. If the officers were watching the feed monitoring in real-time, the break-in would have been seen. However they were not aware until an officer noticed police lights on the monitor of the Pelosi house.

When asked twice during a press conference if there was a security alarm system in place at the Pelosi's residence, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins ignored the question. He stated,  "There was no security present," but now admitted live video surveillance has surfaced. 

This is a developing story.
