House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul, was “violently assaulted” by an assailant who broke into their San Francisco home early Friday, and he is now in the hospital and expected to make a full recovery, said her spokesman, Drew Hammill.
Pelosi was not in the residence at the time. Hammill said the assailant is in custody, and the motivation for the attack is under investigation.
“The Speaker and her family are grateful to the first responders and medical professionals involved, and request privacy at this time,” Hammill said in a statement.
Here are the details:
The Statement Says Paul Pelosi Was ‘Taken to the Hospital’ But Is Expected to Recover
According to the statement, Paul Pelosi is expected to recover, but he was hospitalized due to the attack.
“Mr. Pelosi was taken to the hospital, where he is receiving excellent medical care and is expected to make a full recovery. The Speaker was not in San Francisco at the time.”
The statement added: “The Speaker and her family are grateful to the first responders and medical professionals involved, and request privacy at this time.”
The US Capitol Police released a statement saying that they are assisting the FBI and the San Francisco Police “with a joint investigation” into the break-in at the Pelosi residence in California.
The statement provides further information on how law enforcement responded, saying that special agents with the USCP’s California Field Office “quickly arrived on scene, while a team of investigators from the Department’s Threat Assessment Section was simultaneously dispatched from the East Coast to assist the FBI and the San Francisco Police with a joint investigation.”
The assailant entered the Pelosi residence through the back of the house, according two sources familiar with the early details of the incident.
With Speaker Pelosi away, there would not have been a security detail at the residence, according to one source familiar with protocol.
There may be video that US Capitol Police and law enforcement can review as there are security cameras at the home, according to two law enforcement sources.
News of the attack broke in the early morning of October 28, 2022.
The left, of course, has already started blaming Republicans for the home invasion in [checks notes] crime-ridden San Francisco.
There are speculations by local stations that the attack was politically motivated but those are just unconfirmed rumors.
We will report the truth as soon as we have an update on the story!
Paul Pelosi reportedly told 911 dispatch that the individual who allegedly attacked him with a hammer in his home “is a friend,” according to a police dispatch call early Friday morning.
We received some links to the audio calls that were made to police regarding the incident. The suspect supposedly said he was waiting for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in the home. “RP” references Paul Pelosi.
Emergency dispatch officials provided the police officers with an address on the 2600 block of Broadway street in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood, according to a dispatch call that took place around 2:28 a.m. on Friday.
A dispatch official calls out during the call to a police car with specific instructions and an address.
“Copy,” replied the person on the other end of the call.
The dispatch official then said that Pelosi informed 911 that he did not know who the attacker was but gave his name and then explained that “he is a friend.”
Police audio of SFPD’s ‘welfare check’ call about Paul Pelosi says that he called “David” a “friend” who seemed “confused.”
Context: This was a Berkeley nudist in his underwear struggling with another man in his underwear over a hammer at 2:30 am in San Francisco
That’s really strange!
Now, he’s saying the guy is a friend but then he’s also saying he didn’t know who he was?
According to the Daily Mail, DePape was arrested wearing only underwear and hit Paul in the head with a hammer while asking where Nancy was. Paul Pelosi was admitted to a San Francisco hospital shortly afterward for surgery, and DePape was arrested.
Details continue to emerge, and here’s one that’s catching some attention:

David DePape’s social media history shows he is a troubled man. His posts include obscene re-writes to Disney songs from YouTube, including one titled: ‘Do you want to **** a snowman?’ His post includes the n-word and one titled ‘This is what a dumb b***h looks like. Others were titled: ‘Noah survived the collapse of Atlantis,’ ‘Pedophile normalization,’ ‘Facts are Racist,’ ‘Communist Voodoo science,’ ‘I’m not sexist and ‘Feminist gets owned.’
And while the leftist media would like to portray this man as a Trump following white, Christian, conservative, he also posted long rants about religion, saying ‘Jesus is the antichrist.’ But, of course, a conservative Christian would believe such a statement is blasphemous.
DePape is being held for attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, and additional felonies.
DePape’s home in Berkeley is dubbed a “hippie collective” according to neighbors.
