Justice Department charges DePape following Paul Pelosi assault

The Justice Department on Monday charged David DePape with assault and attempted kidnapping following his alleged break-in at the home of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul.

Paul Pelosi was hospitalized after DePape allegedly struck him with a hammer early Friday morning. Police tackled DePape after arriving on the scene, where officers found a roll of tape, white rope, a second hammer, gloves and zip ties, DOJ said Monday.

DePape called out for Nancy Pelosi during the break-in, according to law enforcement officials — an echo of rioters’ vocal search for the speaker during the Jan. 6 Capitol siege. The kidnapping charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, and the assault charge carries a maximum sentence of 30 years.
