On Saturday Speaker Pelosi spoke out publicly for the first time since the attack saying, “Our children, our grandchildren and I are heartbroken and traumatized by the life-threatening attack on our Pop.”
Though the motive for the attack is still unclear to law enforcement, lawmakers nationwide have been on edge following the attack in which DePape allegedly yelled, “Where is Nancy?” before the assault.
President Joe Biden has condemned the violence against the Pelosi family. “This is despicable. There’s no place in America. There’s too much violence, political violence, too much hatred, too much vitriol,” Biden said in remarks to Pennsylvania Democrats.
