The attack on Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul in their San Francisco home last month was already a very weird story. And it's only gotten weirder.
In addition to conflicting testimony and contradictory reports, we've also seen reports of an unidentified individual reportedly posing as a federal immigrations officer trying to gain access to the suspect:
Now the federal government is claiming that the unidentified man was actually a federal agent, but that local San Francisco authorities just didn't let him in?
SFSO told Fox News last week that a person presenting themselves as an immigration official arrived at the county jail Oct. 31 seeking access to DePape for an interview. However, they said the person was denied access due to a lack of government credentials -- instead saying they only presented a business card. ...
However, an ICE official has since told Fox News Digital that the ICE agent, an Enforcement and Removal Operations deportation officer, not only attempted to conduct an in-person interview with DePape, but also had government ID.
"The officer identified herself and presented her government issued credentials bearing her photo, name, position and organization," the official said. "[San Francisco County Jail] denied the DO's request to interview DePape."
Um, what? So a federal immigration agent showed up to speak to an illegal immigrant, and the sheriff was just like...
Of course, maybe this has something to do with it:
[A] spokesperson also said that it is the policy of the [sheriff's] office to refuse ICE employees entry into the jail if they are engaged in civil immigration enforcement -- meaning they likely would have been denied access even if they had presented a legitimate credential.
