Anderson Cooper 360º: Paul Pelosi suspect charged with attempting to kidnap House speaker and attempted murder

Thought Leader: Anderson Cooper
November 1, 2022

The man alleged to have attacked Paul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has been charged with a litany of crimes, including assault, attempted murder and attempted kidnapping, following last week’s break-in at the couple’s San Francisco home, the US attorney’s office and San Francisco district attorney announced on Monday.
David DePape, 42, was charged with one count of “attempted kidnapping of a US official,” according to the US attorney’s office for the Northern District of California. That charge relates to Nancy Pelosi, who DePape told police he planned to “hold hostage,” according to an FBI affidavit also unsealed on Monday.

CNN Senior Law Enforcement Analyst and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe gives his legal insight and Democrat Representative Jackie Speier who is a colleague and friend of Nancy Pelosi, gives her perspective.
