Speaker Nancy Pelosi has announced her husband Paul’s release from Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital following a hammer attack at their home.

The speaker said: “The Pelosi family is thankful for the beautiful outpouring of love, support and prayers from around the world.

“Paul is grateful to the 911 operator, emergency responders, trauma care team, ICU staff, and the entire ZSFGH medical staff for their excellent and compassionate life-saving treatment he received after the violent assault in our home.

“Paul remains under doctors’ care as he continues to progress on a long recovery process and convalescence. He is now home surrounded by his family who request privacy.”

The alleged attacker of House Speaker Pelosi’s husband pleaded not guilty in San Francisco Superior Court on Tuesday.

Local prosecutor Phoebe Maffei argued that 42-year-old suspect and Richmond resident, David DePape—who allegedly attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer on Oct. 28—should remain in jail without bail, saying that he was a threat to the public.

DePape was also served a protective order requiring him to stay away from the speaker and her husband. He appeared with his arm in a sling, wearing an orange jumpsuit.
