Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was released from hospital Thursday, six days after being severely beaten by an intruder inside the couple’s San Francisco home.

In a statement, Speaker Pelosi said her husband “remains under the care of doctors as he continues to progress through a long process of recovery and recovery.”

Paul Pelosi is recovering from what officials called a successful operation at Zuckerberg General Hospital in San Francisco “to repair a fractured skull and severe injuries to his right arm and hands.”

Pelosi was attacked when an intruder broke into the couple’s Pacific Heights home around 2am last Friday.

Federal prosecutors said David DePape entered the Pelosis home by smashing through a rear glass door with a hammer, then went to the second floor. There he found 82-year-old Paul Pelosi asleep and allegedly shouted, “Where’s Nancy?” Many times.

Paul Pelosi was alone at the time of the burglary; the speaker was in Washington with his protective detail.

Aware of the potential danger, Paul Pelosi managed to make a quick, surreptitious call to 911 and left the line open, authorities said. A 911 dispatcher realized something was seriously wrong and immediately dispatched the police to the address. Officers learned there was a man inside the house named David, whom Pelosi did not know.

DePape was charged with attempted murder, residential burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, wrongful imprisonment of an elder, and threatening a public official and his family. He faces 13 years to life in prison if convicted of all charges brought against him by the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office. He also faces federal charges of assault and kidnapping.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials confirmed Thursday that DePape was also in the United States illegally and could be deported to Canada.

DePape grew up in British Columbia and moved to California more than 20 years ago, according to a family member who spoke to The Times.

Records retrieved by ICE revealed that DePape entered the United States at the San Ysidro port of entry in San Diego as a temporary visitor in March 2008. Canadians entering with this status generally do not need visa requirements, officials said; the United States generally allows them to stay as temporary visitors for six months.

On Tuesday, ICE officials released an immigration detainee on DePape with San Francisco County Jail, where he is currently being held without bail. Under the inmate, San Francisco law enforcement must notify ICE prior to his release so the federal agency can take him into care.

ICE issues detainees against people facing criminal charges when the agency has probable cause to believe they can be deported.

He also had other targets in mind — including a Bay Area professor and prominent state and federal politicians and their families — when he broke into the Pelosis home, reports said. prosecutors said.

The attack raised questions about the security measures taken to protect the speaker. U.S. Capitol Police said Wednesday that security cameras at Pelosis’ San Francisco residence were unmonitored the night of the violent home invasion.

Capitol Police said in a statement that cameras “are being used to actively monitor the speaker’s San Francisco residence 24 hours a day while she is there,” but acknowledged that while she is in Washington , DC, with its security details – as it was during the Friday-in break – the “cameras were not actively monitored”.

Federal prosecutors allege DePape hoped to find President Pelosi at the house. They say he intended to kidnap her and break her kneecaps, and called her the “leader of the pack” of lies he says were told by the Democratic Party.

Police did not offer a motive for the attack. But San Francisco Dist. Atti. Brooke Jenkins said Monday that based on DePape’s statements to police and his comments to Paul Pelosi at the scene, it “was politically motivated.”

A Times review of DePape’s online accounts showed he was involved in the world of far-right conspiracies, anti-Semitism and hate.

In a personal blog maintained by DePape, post titles include “History manipulation,” “Holohoax,” and “It’s okay to be white.” He mentions 4Chan, a favorite far-right message board. He posted videos about conspiracies involving COVID-19 vaccines and claiming the war in Ukraine was a ploy to get Jews to buy land.

DePape’s screeds also include articles on QAnon’s unsubstantiated theory that former President Trump is at war with a cabal of Satan-worshipping Democratic elites who run a pedophilia ring and control the world. In an Aug. 23 entry titled “Q,” DePape wrote, “Either Q is Trump himself or Q is the deep state moles within Trump’s inner circle.

Adam Lipson, public defender for DePape, said his client’s “vulnerability to misinformation” will be considered as part of his defense.
