Paul Pelosi, 82, had undergone surgery to repair a fractured skull and also suffered serious injuries to his right arm and hands while struggling against an intruder.

“Our children, our grandchildren and I are heartbroken and traumatized by the life-threatening attack on our Pop,” she said.

“We are grateful for the quick response of law enforcement and emergency services, and for the life-saving medical care he is receiving.”

The attack on Paul Pelosi sparked condemnation from both sides of the aisle, with President Joe Biden on Saturday blaming political rhetoric -- including denial of the 2020 election result -- for the attack.

Threats against members of Congress have been on the rise, and the House Speaker had been a particular target of vitriol.
