Watch: Paul Pelosi Hammer Attack Bodycam Video Released

•, by Tyler Durden

Fast forward to around 30 seconds.

After 30 minutes of DePape being in the house, Pelosi was holding some type of beverage when he answered the door for police.

The footage comes after a San Francisco judge ordered the DA to release evidence related to the attack - including 911 audio calls, home surveillance video, and police body camera footage from the attack on Pelosi.

San Francisco Superior Court Judge Stephen Murphy also ruled that audio recordings of a police interview with the suspected assailant, David DePape, must be made public. It is unclear when the evidence will be unsealed.

Adam Lipson, DePape's defense attorney, objected to the release of the evidence, arguing that it might impair his client's ability to get a fair trial, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

DePape stands accused of breaking into Pelosi's home on Oct. 28 and carrying out a brutal hammer attack against the 82-year-old husband of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Interestingly, the new video more or less matches what still-missing NBC News correspondent Miguel Almaguer reported in November, who reported that "After a 'knock and announce,' the front door was opened by Mr. Pelosi. The 82-year-old did not immediately declare an emergency or try to leave his home," reports NBC. Instead, Pelosi "began walking several feet back into the foyer toward the assailant and away from police."
