Early Friday morning, businessman Paul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, was “violently assaulted” by an intruder who broke into their home in San Francisco, California. Speaker Pelosi was not at home. She was in Washington D.C. The assailant is in custody and investigations into the motive of the attack are on. Paul Pelosi, 82 was taken to the hospital and is expected to recover.

Drew Hammill, spokesman for House Speaker Pelosi said that Mr. Pelosi had been “violently assaulted” and had been taken to a hospital where he had received excellent treatment and was “expected to make a full recovery.”

The spokesman also said that Nancy Pelosi and her family expressed their gratitude “to the first responders and medical professionals involved” and that they requested privacy at this time.

The US Capitol Police confirmed that Paul Pelosi was attacked and said that the San Francisco police had apprehended a suspect. The Capitol Police, the FBI and the San Francisco Police are partnering together to conduct an investigation into the violent assault. Nancy Pelosi has been a target for Republicans’ adverse comments as she continues to zip across the nation. She is the Democrats’ prime fundraiser and has collected the largest donations for the Democratic party before the November midterms.

The January 6 investigations by the House committee also showed her in an extremely favorable light as she took charge, during an unforeseen, difficult situation at the Capitol due to the insurrection. She also kept in constant touch with the then Vice President Mike Pence, who remained in the building.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that President Joe Biden was “praying for Paul Pelosi and for Speaker Pelosi’s whole family.” Jean Pierre also said that President Biden had spoken to Speaker Pelosi and was glad that Paul Pelosi was expected to fully recover. President Biden also continued to “condemn all violence” and asked “that the family’s desire for privacy be respected.”

Congresspersons have condemned the attack. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer called the attack a “dastardly act.”

Nancy Pelosi and Paul Pelosi were married in 1963. They have five children and several grandchildren.
