Federal officials this week appeared to rebuke a local California sheriff for allegedly denying a federal agent access to the illegal immigrant who reportedly attacked Paul Pelosi last month.
The San Francisco Sheriff’s Department this month told local news media that on Oct. 31 an unidentified individual “pretended to be a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent” in order to gain access to alleged Pelosi attacker David DePape.
Yet an ICE official this week told Fox News that the agency had indeed sent an agent to speak to DePape and that the agent in question presented full identification while there.
“The officer identified herself and presented her government issued credentials bearing her photo, name, position and organization,” the official told the news network. “[San Francisco County Jail] denied the DO’s request to interview DePape.”
