Nancy Pelosi’s Husband Assaulted During Home Invasion

From a story on by Andrew Solender headlined “Pelosi’s husband “violently assaulted” during home invasion”:

The big picture: The attack comes amid an uptick in threats against members of Congress and a series of security incidents over the summer.

Driving the news: Pelosi’s spokesperson Drew Hammill said in a statement, “Early this morning, an assailant broke into the Pelosi residence in San Francisco and violently assaulted Mr. Pelosi.”

“The assailant is in custody and the motivation for the attack is under investigation. Mr. Pelosi was taken to the hospital, where he is receiving excellent medical care and is expected to make a full recovery,” Hammill said.
