Amid the fast-paced events in the nation’s capital over the last month, the FBI released documents that shed light on past criminal investigations into Nancy Pelosi’s father and brother.
While Nancy Pelosi herself is not mentioned in the documents, they cast an unflattering light on her family. The documents surrounding the investigation reveal that the FBI was tasked with collecting allegations and rumors about the family – some of which are shocking, although ultimately unverified.
Among them, are allegations that Pelosi’s father “took payoffs from applicants to the police force, and that he helped to hinder the investigation and prosecution of crimes.” They also document sources that claim he associated with Soviet front groups. And Pelosi’s brother is accused by sources of child rape.
Just The News reports:
While Washington, D.C. was riveted Jan. 6 on events at the U.S. Capitol, the FBI quietly released a trove of files from an “urgent” — yet seemingly controlled — investigation 60 years ago into Nancy Pelosi’s father.
The files reveal the results of an intense two-month investigation into Thomas D’Alesandro, Jr., a Maryland politician who served in a long career as a member of Congress and mayor of Baltimore.
In sometimes illegible and heavily redacted reproductions, the 248-page collection shows that FBI agents were tasked with running down rumors and facts surrounding their man.
The documents also note:
“There have been allegations that D’Alesandro has associated with the Baltimore criminal element and [redacted] and the son, Franklin Roosevelt D’Alesandro, had been arrested for rape,” an agent wrote on page 14 of the trove. The allegations may have been rumor, the agent noted.
…Elsewhere in the trove, agents wrote about the son, who was arrested and acquitted on charges that saw others convicted of raping two young girls, aged 11 and 13. The young D’Alesandro, who died in 2007, also was tried and acquitted of perjury in relation to that case.
“…Elsewhere, the memo cites a “confidential source, who has furnished reliable information in the past,” reporting that D’Alesandro appeared onstage at a 1943 rally for the National Council of American-Soviet Friendship, which was formed in 1943 by the Coummunist Party USA as a Soviet front group, according to the FBI.”
There’s a lot to process here, although ultimately none of the material is confirmed. If even half of the allegations by sources are true, Nancy Pelosi grew up in an extremely troubled family, to say the least.
