"The onetime nude enthusiast said he went to the Pelosi home in the Pacific Palisades last year to talk to Nancy Pelosi about Russia's involvement in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and that he had planned to show up wearing an inflatable unicorn costume and upload his interrogation of her online," the Washington Examiner reported.
"His objective was to get her as well as other 'targets' to admit to their alleged corruption and then get President Joe Biden to issue pardons 'so we can move forward as a country,'" it added.

“I realized that it was a very serious situation. The first thing I tried to do was get up and try to get to the elevator, because if I can get in the elevator, there’s a phone in the elevator, and I could close the door so he couldn’t get to me. I walked toward the elevator, but he blocked me," Paul Pelosi stated in court.
“Then I got the idea. I went over to my bathroom because I always leave my cellphone in my bathroom. I dialed 911,” he continued.
Prosecutors offered evidence that DePape researched Nancy Pelosi weeks ahead of the attack.
DePape is charged with attempted kidnapping of a federal official and assault.
The case also includes additional state felonies. DePape pleaded not guilty ahead of the trial.
The case seeks to bring justice and discover the truth of what really happened during the horrific event that seriously injured the husband of a congresswoman.
