Hours after reporting bizarre new details about the Paul Pelosi attack, NBC News pulled the video and scrubbed the report from its website.
San Francisco-based NBC correspondent Miguel Almaguer reported that sources familiar with the incident said Mr. Pelosi opened the door for police and “did not immediately declare an emergency or try to leave his home, but instead began walking several feet back into the foyer toward the assailant and away from police.”

Almaguer added, “Why Pelosi didn’t try to flee or tell responding officers he was in distress is unclear. We still don’t know exactly what unfolded between Mr. Pelosi and the suspect for the 30 minutes they were alone inside that house before police arrived. Officials who were investigating this matter would not go into further details about these new details.”
National radio host Todd Starnes reacted to NBC wiping the video.
“NBC News removes video alleging jaw-dropping new details about Pelosi attack because it ‘did not meet our standards,'” Starnes tweeted.
“In other words, they were ORDERED to remove the video,” he added.

“We apologize, this video has expired,” NBC wrote on the original clip, along with an editor’s note, “The piece should not have aired because it did not meet NBC News reporting standards.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for “privacy” Thursday after her husband was released from the hospital. President Biden and other Democrats have placed blame for the attack on “MAGA Republicans,” despite the suspect being an illegal alien who was a nudist protester.
