Pelosi Breaks Silence About Husband’s Attack
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in a new interview following the attack of her husband, Paul Pelosi in their San Francisco home, said that the incident would affect whether she chose to retire or not from Congress if the Democrats lose their House majority during the midterm elections.
Pelosi told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that the incidents of the past couple of weeks will affect her decision. When asked about whether the attack specifically would change her decision, Pelosi said “yes.”
These remarks from Pelosi come less than two weeks after her husband, Paul Pelosi, 82 was injured by a man who intruded into their residence through a glass door on Oct. 28th.
David DePape, the intruder was looking for Nancy Pelosi, whom he allegedly wanted to take hostage. After finding Paul Pelosi, he hit him in the head with a hammer. As a result, Paul Pelosi had to undergo surgery for a fractured skull. At the time of the attack, Nancy Pelosi had been in Washington, D.C.
If the Republicans do manage to win the House majority, then Pelosi’s time as Speaker will also come to an end, which has led to many asking whether she would retire.
In 2018, Pelosi had said she would retire at the end of this term, but many are worried that if the Democrats managed to secure a majority, Pelosi would try to retain her position of leadership in the lower chamber.
