The husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Paul Pelosi, was released from a San Francisco hospital on day six after being struck with a hammer in the couple’s home. The Speaker of the House released a statement on Thursday saying, “Paul continues to advance on a protracted rehabilitation path and convalescence.” It’s safe to say he’s back in his own bed now.

For “their superb and caring life-saving treatment,” Pelosi said her husband was grateful to the 911 operator who guided police to the family home, the emergency responders, and the entire hospital personnel. She expressed gratitude for the “wonderful outpouring of love, support, and prayers from around the world” on behalf of the Pelosi family.
After the attack last Friday, which has been widely condemned as an act of politically motivated violence, Paul Pelosi was taken to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, where he received successful surgery for a fractured skull and other injuries.
David DePape, the accused attacker, has been released after US police revealed that he is a Canadian national who entered the country illegally 14 years ago as a tourist.
Ice, the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement department, announced on Thursday that it had issued a “detainer” notice with San Francisco authorities in order to secure DePape’s custody after criminal proceedings against him were over. DePape faces multiple charges, including attempted murder and kidnapping.

On November 1, four days following DePape’s arrest, Ice filed a detainer with the San Francisco county jail in anticipation of deporting him to Canada upon completion of his prison term.
A man named DePape, 42 was taken into custody after he allegedly broke into the home of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in San Francisco, demanded to see her, and then clubbed her husband in the head with a hammer. Democratic leader and maybe future vice president Nancy Pelosi was in Washington at the time.
Upon his detention, DePape allegedly told police that he intended to kidnap the witness, interrogate her, and break her kneecaps if she “lied,” as stated in court documents presented by prosecutors.
Paul Pelosi, 82, was hospitalized after the attack and faces protracted rehabilitation.
On Tuesday, DePape, who has been detained without bail, pled not guilty to state counts of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, burglary, elder abuse, false detention, and threatening a public officer. If he is found guilty, he could spend anywhere from 13 years to the rest of his life behind bars.
