The suspect in the attack of Paul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had a background that included mental illness and living with a nudist.
David DePaper, 42, was arrested on multiple charges for reportedly breaking into the Pelosi’s home and attacking Paul Pelosi with a hammer that fractured his skull.

“[DePape] was associated with this woman by the name of Gypsy Taub, who was like this very creepy person who, in addition to her activism around public nudity, she was a 9/11 denier,” California state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) said, according to Fox News.
“Taub told ABC7 in a phone interview on Sunday that she is DePape’s ‘ex-life partner,’ and described him as ‘mentally ill,'” he added.

An illegal immigrant
“The man accused of attacking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband with a hammer is a Canadian citizen who was in the United States illegally and is facing possible deportation after his criminal cases are resolved, the Department of Homeland Security said late Wednesday,” the Washington Post reported.
“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged an immigration detainer on Canadian national David DePape with San Francisco County Jail, Nov. 1, following his Oct. 28 arrest,” DHS officials said in an email, according to the report.
The Republican Party and its mouthpieces now regularly spread hate and deranged conspiracy theories. It is shocking, but not surprising, that violence is the result. As citizens, we must hold them accountable for their words and the actions that follow.https://t.co/MQor4NDFeE

Despite the evidence of mental illness and immigration status, leftists like Hillary Clinton continue to blame the attack on Republicans.
The evidence is clear that this was an attacker who had much bigger problems than who to support in an election, including both liberal and conservative conspiracy theory views in his background.
The crime is horrific regardless of DePape’s views, but there are still other remaining questions regarding the attacker and how he obtained access to Pelosi’s home.
