The Justice Department announced federal charges against David DePape in the alleged attack on Paul Pelosi last Friday.

Kristinn Taylor reported on the announcement earlier.

DePape is being charged with assault on a family member of a U.S. official and one count of attempted kidnapping of a U.S. official, Nancy Pelosi, who was not home at the time.

In the charging documents, the Justice Department, via interviews with Paul Pelosi and DePape lay out the government’s version of events (summary via The Gateway Pundit):

The two men did not know each other. DePape broke into the house via a rear door using a hammer and went upstairs looking for Nancy Pelosi. He found Paul Pelosi in bed and told him he was looking for Nancy. Not finding her home he told Paul he would wait for her. He let Paul go to the bathroom where Paul made a 911 call, which apparently DePape overheard. The two went downstairs where Paul opened the door when police knocked. Paul was not attacked until police arrived when he was apparently beaten unconscious by DePape with a hammer while police confronted the men. DePape had a bag with zip ties, rope, tape, gloves, another hammer and a journal.

DePape said his plan was to hold Nancy Pelosi hostage to get her to tell the truth and let her go if she did tell the truth, but if she lied he would break her kneecaps.

“DEPAPE also later explained that by breaking Nancy’s kneecaps, she would then have to be wheeled into Congress, which would show other Members of Congress there were consequences to actions.”

According to today’s version of events, David DePape broke into the home unnoticed, went to the bedroom where Paul Pelosi was sleeping where they had a discussion before Paul slipped into the bathroom to make a call.

No telling what the story will be tomorrow.

The court documents say David DePape was tired from carrying a backpack to the Pelosi residence and wanted to take a nap.
