David DePape, the 42-year-old unlawful immigrant from Canada blamed for breaking into the home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last week and going after her husband with a hammer, purportedly needed to keep the congresswoman locked down and took steps to break “her kneecaps” if he discovered her lying, as indicated by court reports.
San Francisco police showed up at the home and experienced Paul Pelosi, 82, and DePape battling over a hammer. After the officials requested them to drop the weapon, DePape purportedly held onto control of it and swung it into Pelosi’s skull.
He told San Francisco police after his arrest that, “If Nancy [Pelosi] were to tell DePape the ‘truth,’ he would let her go, and if she ‘lied,’ he was going to break ‘her kneecaps,” so that she would have to be wheeled into Congress.
Nancy Pelosi said in an explanation Monday night that “Paul is making steady progress on what will be a long recovery process.” Paul Pelosi was conceded the clinic after the attack and went through what the speaker’s office portrayed as a “successful surgery to repair a skull fracture and serious injuries to his right arm and hands.”
The suspect had designated the Pelosi home to face the House speaker, break San Francisco Head prosecutor Brooke Jenkins said at a public interview Monday. DePape purportedly constrained his direction through a rear glass door, advancing toward the second floor of the home, where Paul Pelosi was dozing. He then, at that point, woke Paul Pelosi, who was clad in a pajama shirt and boxer shorts, and asked where his significant other was, as per Jenkins.
DePape, 42, is being accused of endeavored murder, private thievery, attack with a lethal weapon, senior maltreatment, misleading detainment of a senior, and dangers to a public authority and their family, Jenkins said.
