New details keep pouring in after news broke that Nancy Pelosi's home, which she shares with her husband, Paul Pelosi, was broken into, and he was violently assaulted with a hammer. Paul Pelosi is currently undergoing brain surgery after David DePape, 42, attacked the 82-year-old while yelling, "Where is Nancy?"
Mr. Pelosi suffered from blunt-force trauma to his head and body.

DePape is/was an avid social media user who has embraced conspiracy theories in online posts.

When the police entered the Pelosis' home, the intruder said, "We are waiting for Nancy." We're not sure who "we" is, though.

The San Francisco Police Department said that the suspect will be charged with attempted homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, burglary, and several additional felonies.

"The suspect pulled the hammer away from Mr. Pelosi and violently assaulted him with it," said San Francisco Police Chief William Scott during a press conference. "Our officers immediately tackled the suspect, disarmed him, took him into custody, requested emergency backup, and rendered medical aid."

Via The Wall Street Journal:

Mr. DePape has espoused extreme right-wing views on social media, including conspiracy theories about Covid-19, according to one law-enforcement officials briefed on the investigation.

DePape wasn't doing too well in life.

Via Heavy:

On a WordPress blog, Depape ranted about censorship by the “elites” and “ruling class.” He also appears to have a website that reads “da Jews.” Sixteen hours ago, he posted the headline, “Why Colleges are becoming Cults.” He ranted about movies, writing, “The critics are f****** commie gate keepers. They love the sh******* movies ever as long as those movies are sh**** because they where…”

Some of his posts referred to former President Donald Trump. “Either Q is Trump himself or Q is the deepstate moles within Trumps inner circle. So Q/Trump sabotaged their child trafficking operations. #2 self inflicted wound. Trumps covert id or a Deep state mole? Was Q refering to this? Did Q do this? another video,” he wrote, referring to QAnon.

He also spewed antisemitic theories about the war in Ukraine.

The Pelosis' home after the home invasion:

President Biden has been informed of the attack.

Incredibly, if you spend 5 minutes on Trump's failing Truth Social platform, you'll run across dozens of people that share David DePape's conspiratorial views.
