House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been relatively quiet since the Friday attack that left her husband hospitalized.

However, in a letter sent to House members today, she has provided an update on her husband’s condition.


Dear Colleague,

Yesterday morning, a violent man broke into our family home, demanded to confront me and brutally attacked my husband Paul. Our children, our grandchildren and I are heartbroken and traumatized by the life-threatening attack on our Pop. We are grateful for the quick response of law enforcement and emergency services, and for the life-saving medical care he is receiving.

Please know that the outpouring of prayers and warm wishes from so many in the Congress is a comfort to our family and is helping Paul make progress with his recovery. His condition continues to improve.

We are also comforted by the words of the Book of Isaiah: “Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

We thank you and pray for the continued safety and well-being of your family.


Police identified the attacker as David Depape, and multiple reports have suggested the attacker was searching for Nancy Pelosi. Several updates since the initial attack have brought more information to light.
