Pelosi, in her first sit-down interview since the attack, said she was sleeping in Washington after flying in from San Francisco last night when her doorbell rang early in the morning. “I look up, I see it’s 5 [a.m. ET]they must be in the wrong apartment,” she told Cooper after he asked where she was when she got the news.

Pelosi continued that the doorbell rang again, and then she heard a “bang, bap, bang, bang, knock on the door.”

“And so I ran to the door and I’m very scared,” Pelosi said, describing what happened. “I see the Capitol Police and they say, ‘We need to come in and talk to you.'”

Pelosi described how her thoughts immediately turned to her children and grandchildren.

“And I think of my children, my grandchildren. I never thought it would be Paul, because, you know, I knew he wouldn’t be out, let’s say. And so they entered. At the time, we didn’t even know where he was,” she said.
