Prosecutors say ‘boilerplate’ language ‘auto-generated’ Paul Pelosi’s drug allegation in DUI charge

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband isn’t a druggie after all — he’s maybe just an alcoholic.

Earlier this week BizPac Review reported that the DUI complaint filed against her husband, Paul Pelosi, as per a crash that occurred in May, accused him of having been “under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and a drug and under their combined influence.”

But according to both Pelosi’s attorney and the prosecutor handling his case, it was a wording mistake attributable to the charging office’s computer system.

The office’s computer system has been programmed to output the words “under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and a drug and under their combined influence” whenever dealing with a DUI charge, even if the charge is only alcohol-related.

“I believe that the drug reference is part of the statutory boilerplate language in the complaint,” attorney Amanda Bevins explained to Fox News.

The Napa County District Attorney’s Office concurred.

“She is correct,” Assistant District Attorney Paul Gero said. “It is boilerplate language auto generated in the complaint. Our theory is alcohol.”

One definition of boilerplate is “standardized text.”

And so the drug reference was part of the standardized text that’s been programmed into their system. That’s it.

The reporting from when the crash originally occurred in May fits with this.

“The Napa County District Attorney’s Office charged him with one count each of driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury and driving with an .08% blood alcohol level or higher causing injury, both misdemeanors,” CBS News reported at the time.

“The 82-year-old Pelosi was involved in a two-vehicle wreck on a rural road in Napa County at approximately 10:17 p.m. on May 28, the district attorney’s office said in a statement announcing the charging decision.”

The arrest provoked widespread controversy because of the measly $5,000 bail he, a multimillionaire, had to pay to be released.

Controversy erupted again this week when Fox News published a copy of Pelosi’s criminal complaint.

Not only did the complaint contain the boilerplate text about alcohol and drugs, but it also offered stunning insights into the millionaire businessman’s behavior.

First, he reportedly tried to get himself out of trouble by touting his donations to a California Highway Patrol charity.

“Pelosi allegedly handed officers his driver’s license and an ’11-99 Foundation’ card when they asked for his ID, according to the documents. The 11-99 Foundation is a California Highway Patrol charity that supports officers and provides scholarships for their children,” as reported by Fox News.

Second, he acted straight-up drunk.

“Pelosi allegedly exhibited ‘signs of impairment’ during field sobriety tests and officers ‘observed objective signs and symptoms of alcohol intoxication.’ … Those allegedly included ‘red/watery’ eyes,” Fox News reported, quoting directly from the complaint.

“He was unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of an alcohol beverage emanating from his breath,” the complaint itself reportedly reads.

But it gets worse.

Reporting on Fox News’ “Jesse Watters Primetime” this Tuesday, the eponymous host revealed that cameras and live feed recordings have been banned from the courtroom during Pelosi’s hearings.

“But that is just where the cover-up begins. Are you ready? Because what also happened today, the night before the hearing, the presiding judge has mysteriously stepped down, and a new judge has been quickly installed,” Watters said.

“So who’s this new judge? You’re not gonna believe this. Her name is Monique Langhorne, and she’s a registered Democrat whose previous job, are you ready? She used to work for the Napa County DA’s office. Does Judge Langhorne have any experience in criminal cases? No, this would be her first.”

The Fox News host continued, “And it gets better. Guess who donated to this judge’s campaign? The assistant DA who’s going to be prosecuting the case tomorrow. She’s very well-connected. She was appointed to a special advisory board by Gavin Newsom too, so I mean this is totally deck stacking if I’ve ever seen it.”

“How can we expect a fair trial here when the judge and the prosecutors are all politically on the same side as the defendant, financially connected, there’s a family connection we told you about too. Can you say rigged?”

Pelosi is also facing scrutiny for his perfectly timed stock trades.

During his wife’s trip to Taiwan this week, she met with a semiconductor manufacturer, TSMC, that makes chips for companies like Apple and Nvidia. Incidentally, Pelosi has in recent days been buying up shares in chip companies like Nvidia.

Watters doesn’t think this is a coincidence.

“Is this a surprise? No, it was all part of the plan. That’s why Papa Paulie was buying up shares in chip companies like Nvidia right before Nancy went to Taiwan, which, that stock, by the way, up 25 percent in just a month,” he said.

“The Pelosis are always looking for a new investment opportunity, and Nancy seems to be the brains of the operation. Our own Charles Gasparino is reporting on some serious Wall Street chatter that Paul Pelosi is gaming the markets to make a few bucks, he is shorting the S&P, and rumors say Paul’s trading colors everything Nancy does,” Watters added. “Just a rumor. So expect Nancy to come home with some hot tips.”
