Nancy Pelosi says she’s “heartbroken and traumatized” by the vicious attack on her husband that landed him in the hospital with a shattered skull … it seems, thankfully, he’s gonna pull through.

The House Speaker issued her first public statement about the assault, highlighting that the hammer-wielding assailant was after her — not her 82-year-old husband Paul — but she was in D.C. at the time of the attack.

Nancy wrote: “A violent man broke into the family home, demanded that I confront him and brutally attacked my spouse Paul. The life-threatening attack against our Pop has left our children, grandchildren, and me devastated and traumatized. We are grateful for the prompt response of emergency services and law enforcement, as well as the life-saving medical treatment he is receiving. “


Thanking her fellow members of Congress, Nancy stated their “prayers and warm wishes” have helped Paul progress in his recovery as his condition improves. She concluded by quoting scriptures from the Book of Isaiah.

As we reported … Paul was violently attacked inside his family’s San Francisco townhouse early Friday morning after David DePape forced his way inside through a back door, brandishing the hammer.

Paul surreptitiously called 911 from his cell phone and kept the line open so the operator could hear him talking in code to DePape while in clear distress.

Sensing that something was wrong, the operator immediately called police dispatch and requested a higher priority response to the scene.

Within minutes, SFPD officers reached the townhouse to find Paul and DePape arguing over the hammer. DePape allegedly took control of the weapon, and bludgeoned Paul, breaking his skull.

Cops confronted DePape and disarmed him before placing him under arrest. DePape was taken into custody by police and placed in the San Francisco County Jail. He was charged with attempted murder, burglary, assault with a deadly weapons, and other felonies.

Police did not release a motive for this attack.
