On Monday, Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, spoke publicly for the first time about being awoken by a hammering on the door and hearing the news of her husband’s assault at their San Francisco home from Capitol Police.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Opens Up About The attack On Her Husband: I Was Very Scared
Pelosi said, “I was quite afraid,” in an interview with CNN. “I always imagined it would be one of my kids or grandkids, but never Paul,” she said.
The Democratic leader is speaking out about the terrible attack on the eve of the midterm elections as her party fights a wave of Republican enthusiasm for control of Congress amid escalating threats of violence against members and fears over the U.S. election.

Paul Pelosi, 82, was hit at least once in the head with a hammer by an intruder who, according to authorities, stormed into the family’s San Francisco home looking for the speaker 11 days before the election.

The invader threatened to “crush her kneecaps” as a warning to his fellow Democrats and told police he wanted to speak with Speaker Pelosi. During what investigators are calling a politically motivated attack, Paul Pelosi was shot and severely injured, including a cracked skull.
After a long flight back to Washington, D.C. from San Francisco, Pelosi claims she was sound asleep in her apartment when she heard a “bang, bang, bang, bang, bang” on the door. In the vicinity of 5 o’clock in the morning. October 28th, early in the morning.
Pelosi is quoted as saying, “We didn’t even know where he was or what his condition was,” in a clip from an interview that will show later on Monday. Just knowing there was an assault on him in our own home was enough.
After entering a not-guilty plea in San Francisco to attempted murder and other counts, 42-year-old David DePape is being held without bail. Moreover, he is being charged with the attempted kidnapping of an elected official at the federal level.
Authorities said that a fringe activist who believed in conspiracies stormed into the Pelosi residence, woke Paul Pelosi awake, and wanted to speak with someone named “Nancy.”
DePape stated he would wait until Paul Pelosi told him his wife was out of town. Paul Pelosi called 911, and when police arrived, they saw the two men fighting over a hammer, and then DePape hitting Paul Pelosi in the head multiple times.

DePape later confessed to authorities that he had threatened to hurt the speaker and abduct her “to demonstrate to other members of Congress there were repercussions to acts.”
In contrast to the rumors and innuendo that conservatives and some Republican leaders have disseminated about the Pelosis in the wake of the attack, the authorities’ account as spelled out in court records in the case is plain.
Since her husband’s attack, Nancy Pelosi has said very little. However, late last week, when Paul Pelosi was released from the hospital, she did hold a virtual conversation with grassroots activists.
Pelosi addressed participants on the call, “People say to me, ‘What can I do to make you feel better?’ I answer: ‘Vote!'” Her husband’s recuperation, she continued through trembling lips, “is going to be a long trip.”
