Paul Pelosi Attacked At His Residence

Seeing Paul Pelosi for the first time after the accident, everyone is grateful for his recovery and wishes that he can heal quickly.

There was a break-in at the House Speaker’s Californian home. There the assaulter and Paul Pelosi had a conversation and the latter called 911. Meanwhile, Paul was injured badly. The culprit was identified as David DePape and he was charged with assault using a dangerous weapon, attempted murder, burglary, and other crimes.

When DePape talked to the investigators, he said that the target was Nancy Pelosi and the entire thing was a bid for fighting tyranny. According to him, Nancy is the leader and spread lies supporting the Democratic party.

Last week, Nancy Pelosi had a small chat with the media reporters and told them that Paul was recovering slowly but it will take some more time. The House Speaker also added that head injury is a major thing and it results in an impact that is much more than surgery.

Last month, Nancy Pelosi announced that she would be stepping down from her position because the attack that took place made her feel that she should be at home with her husband. Nancy also said that the incident had an effect on her and she can’t give attackers the mental satisfaction of success. She felt traumatized by the incident and wanted to spend more time with her family.
