Jesse Watters reacts to DUI arrest footage of Paul Pelosi: It paints a ‘dark picture’

Fox News host Jesse Watters called the DUI case of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul worse than a misdemeanor in Tuesday’s opening monologue of “Jesse Watters Primetime.” .

The arrest file “paints a very bleak picture”, he said. “It’s obvious to anyone with two eyes that it’s not a misdemeanor. It’s a felony. The cops admitted how bad it was on the tape they hid. They told Paul that he was lucky to be alive.”

On Tuesday, Pelosi accepted a plea deal that he will only serve five days in jail, Watters reported.

He will also serve three years of probation in addition to taking a DUI course and paying court costs, Watters continued, adding that Pelosi will have to blow into an ignition device every time he starts his vehicle’s engine.

Pelosi’s punishment is the “bare minimum” for this case, DUI attorneys told “Primetime.”

If the video had been released earlier, he could have been charged with a crime, Watters said, explaining that’s why the video was hidden until the end of the plea deal.

The crash scene was “utterly chaotic”, with two wrecked cars, “burst” airbags and damaged fencing, he said.

“It could have been manslaughter. It could have been drive-by homicide. Both of those guys could have died,” Watters added.

“Remember: when they told us that no one had been injured, they had these photos, then they hid them. Photos of Paul’s bruised and bloody hands.

Pelosi was not wearing her wedding ring in the photo of her bloody hand, he noted.

DUI attorney Brian Claypool called the case a “scripted injustice,” explaining that the district attorney, defense attorney and judge met on Monday. It “never happens,” he said.

The plea deal “was a pretense and a ruse to show the public that they weren’t in cahoots”.
