Top Democrat demands answers from police after Pelosi attack

A top ally of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is demanding fresh answers from the U.S. Capitol Police about security failures that led to a brutal attack on Pelosi's husband last week, questioning the embattled agency about whether it can keep lawmakers and their families safe.

House Administration Committee Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., wrote a four-page letter to Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger on Wednesday, saying that the attack on Paul Pelosi raises "significant questions about security protections for Members of Congress." The man who beat Paul Pelosi with a hammer was looking for Nancy Pelosi and later told police that he wanted to hold her hostage and break her kneecaps to make a political point, authorities said.
