Nancy Pelosi Discusses Attack on Husband, Says it Will Influence Retirement Decision
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) sat down with CNN for an interview to address the attack on her husband.
Key Quotes: Pelosi said when that Capitol Police knocked on her door to inform her of the attack, "I never thought it would be Paul because, you know, I knew he wouldn’t be out and about, shall we say. And so they came in. At that time, we didn’t even know where he was." Pelosi also said her decision on whether to stay in leadership "will be affected about what happened the last week or two."
For Context: Paul Pelosi was attacked and bludgeoned by a home intruder on Oct. 28 at his San Francisco home, and was hospitalized for roughly a week after undergoing surgery on his fractured skull. Suspect David DePape was charged with attempted murder, assault, and attempted kidnapping. He pleaded not guilty last week. The full interview will air Monday night at 8 p.m. ET on CNN.
How the Media Covered It: Most news sources across the political spectrum covered Pelosi's comments without partisan slant. Some right-rated sources, such as Fox News, also mentioned a report that NBC News (Lean Left bias) had published and retracted last week detailing an anonymous source's account of the Pelosi attack that didn't match the police report.
