The attack on Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was first surprising, and the media was eager to place the finger upon Trump supporters or conservative activists. Emerging information indicate that although the occurrence is nonetheless startling, it is disturbing in a different way.
Fox News had the following to say about the attack:
The husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Paul, was assaulted with a hammer early Friday inside his San Francisco home by an attacker identified by police as David DePape, who a law enforcement source tells Fox News was shouting “Where is Nancy, where is Nancy?”
San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said DePape, 42, who is a man reported being a former Castro nudist and hemp jewelry maker is now facing charges of attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, burglary, and several other additional felonies stemming from the incident after 2 a.m.
Scott said police responded to a well-being check and found DePape and Paul Pelosi, 82, struggling over a hammer. He said officers then witnessed DePape pull the hammer away from Pelosi and “violently assaulted” him.
Officers then immediately tackled DePape, disarmed him and took him into custody, while requesting emergency backup and rendering medical aid at the scene. The motive for the attack remains under investigation.
A source that spoke to Fox News said the intruder confronted the Speaker’s husband shouting “where is Nancy, where is Nancy?”
“Early this morning, an assailant broke into the Pelosi residence in San Francisco and violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi,” Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said. “Mr. Pelosi was taken to the hospital, where he is receiving excellent medical care and is expected to make a full recovery.
The spokesman also said, “The Speaker and her family are grateful to the first responders and medical professionals involved, and request privacy at this time.”
The White House said President Biden “is praying for Paul Pelosi and for Speaker Pelosi’s whole family” following the “horrible attack.”
