According to a New York Times report former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called priests into her San Francisco to perform an “exorcism” following the attack on her husband in November.
Alexandra Pelosi, the daughter of Nancy Pelosi, disclosed to the New York Times that the exorcism was performed over Thanksgiving. That was only weeks after David DePape had entered the Pelosi home and allegedly attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer. She further added that her mother had felt “guilty” that she had been the reason that Paul Pelosi had been attacked.
During the New York Times report, she also added that Nancy Pelosi had felt weighted down by the incident and that the exorcism and prayer services had helped lift it all off her soul. In regards to her father, she added that he is generally a strong and athletic person and that he should recover fully, but that recovery would take around three to four more months.
San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins has disclosed that DePape had entered the Pelosi home on Oct 28, near the early morning hours. At the time Nancy Pelosi had been in Washington, D.C., and Paul Pelosi had been sleeping at home. Paul Pelosi was the one to call 911 after escaping to his home bathroom. When the police arrived they saw Paul Pelosi and DePape struggling over a hammer, which DePape used to then attack Paul Pelosi.
DePape has pleaded not guilty to all charges brought against him which include attempted murder, residential burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, and elder abuse.
