"It will be a long recovery process": Pelosi on her husband's medical condition

WASHINGTON DC – Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi said on Monday that her husband Paul is in the process of recovering after last Friday’s attack at the couple’s home in San Francisco, California.

“Paul is making steady progress in a lengthy recovery process,” the lawmaker wrote on his Twitter account.

Pelosi also took the opportunity to thank those who have sent her and her husband messages of encouragement, as well as the team at Zuckerberg Hospital in the California city where her husband is being treated.

On the same Monday, the US Department of Justice and the San Francisco District Attorney announced a series of parallel criminal charges against David Deppe, who was accused of attacking Pelosi’s partner with a hammer in their home. He has been charged with attempted murder and attempted kidnapping.

The 42-year-old, originally from Canada, was arrested on the same Friday as police arrived at the scene after hitting Pelosi’s husband on the head with a hammer.

The San Francisco district attorney, who is looking into the case at the state level, said Friday that the shooter appeared to be “politically motivated.”

Paul Pelosi was attacked in San Francisco while he was at his family home. Attacker “Where’s Nancy?” She entered the house screaming, although she was in Washington DC at the time, and attacked her husband in the head with a hammer.

Paul Pelosi was taken to hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

The investigation is still ongoing, but it is now known that the attacker forcibly entered the house through the back door and was carrying another hammer, strap, rope and duct tape, according to prosecutors.

The husband of the Speaker of the Lower House was taken to Zuckerberg General Hospital in San Francisco, and successfully intervened for a skull fracture and multiple serious injuries to his right arm and hands.

The attack came less than two weeks before legislative elections on November 8, in which the entire House of Representatives and a third of the Senate seats would be renewed.
