Paul Pelosi, 82, spouse of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi brutally attacked with a hammer at their home in San Francisco.
We’re learning that the intruder had plans to wait for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi shouting, “Where is Nancy?”
Pelosi secretly called 911 and spoke in code, leading the 911 dispatcher to use her training and intuition to get help to him fast.
Pelosi has undergone successful surgery for a skull fracture and injuries to his right arm and hands, according to a statement from the speakers’ spokesperson. Pelosi is expected to make a full recovery.
The suspect, David DePape, 42, is a conspiracy theorist charged with Assault and Attempted kidnapping. His motives remain unknown. He is unknown to US Capital Police and is not on any federal databases. The US Capitol Police, in a statement, indicated that they are assisting the FBI and the San Francisco Police “with a joint investigation” into the violent intrusion.
