NEW YORK (LifeSiteNews) – The attacker of pro-life Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin has been released from jail just hours after he attempted to stab the New York Representative.
On July 22, 43 year-old David Jakubonis was released from jail after being charged with second-degree attempted assault for his attack on Zeldin during a campaign stop in Perinton, New York, according to a Monroe County Sheriff’s Office press release.
Jakubonis made his attack on Zeldin as the NY Governor candidate was giving a campaign speech in Perinton, July 21.
His words as he tried to stab me a few hours ago were “you’re done”, but several attendees, including @EspositoforNY, quickly jumped into action & tackled the guy.
Law enforcement was on the scene within minutes.

“His words as he tried to stab me a few hours ago were, ‘You’re done,’ but several attendees, including @EspositoforNY, quickly jumped into action & tackled the guy,” Zeldin tweeted.
“Law enforcement was on the scene within minutes,” he added, while predicting, “The attacker will likely be instantly released under NY’s laws.”
According to Fox News Digital, Jakubonis’ attack was stopped by AMVETS national Director Joe Chenelly.
“His right hand came up, I assume out of his pocket, and he had a blade on his hand,” Chenelly told Fox News Digital. “His fingers were like two finger holes in the blade and lunged at the congressman. And Congressman Zeldin blocked the first lunge. And then as he tried to lunge again, I grabbed him from behind and tackled him down to the ground and held him on the ground.”
This is not the first attack on a pro-life politician in recent months. On June 8, police arrested an armed man outside Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home. The man allegedly told police that he wanted to kill the conservative Catholic justice.
While the would-be-assailant was arrested, pro-abortion protestors gathered outside Kavanaugh’s home just hours after the attempt on the justice’s life chanting anti-Catholic and anti-life slogans.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to publicly denounce illegal protests at the homes of pro-life Supreme Court justices. Her predecessor, Jen Psaki, had claimed that the White House encouraged “peaceful protests…outside of judges’ homes,” saying “that’s the president’s position.”
Acts of vandalism and arson began escalating in May after news of the leaked draft Supreme Court report that could overturn Roe v. Wade. Pro-abortion radical group Jane’s Revenge has claimed responsibility for multiple attacks against pro-life organizations and churches across America.
UPDATE AUGUST 29, 2022 — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admits to Joe Rogan that the FBI was interested in supressing the Hunter Biden Laptop story!
If you are not aware of the foreign security threats implicated in the "Hunter Biden Laptop Story" — and what they might mean for America's national security and foreign geopolitical affairs — that’s by design.
You were never meant to discover the contents compromising President Joe Biden, and for good reason. The mainstream media kept you ignorant on purpose.
Washington Post roasted for acknowledging Hunter Biden scandal once called 'fake': 'Retroactive Pulitzer?'https://t.co/5mCc5w51xs— Fox News (@FoxNews) March 30, 2022
The Hunter Biden laptop was real, of course. The NYT buries its confirmation of the story in paragraph 27. https://t.co/be9cPkXsKF— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) March 17, 2022
In fact, the New York Post was censored by Twitter, Facebook, and all of Big Tech for even breaking the story that Hunter Biden’s laptop existed.
CNN, MSNBC dismissed Hunter Biden’s laptop as ‘Russian disinformation’ until liberal narrative was deflatedhttps://t.co/NwYPMEZ73u— Fox News (@FoxNews) April 6, 2022
The New York Times, Washington Post, and the entire mainstream media called any reference to the story “Russian disinformation."
THAT’S WHY AMERICA MUST INSIST THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPORT THE TRUTH ABOUT THE BIDEN FAMILY AND THE CONTENTS OF HUNTER’S LAPTOP!
SIGN: Tell the Mainstream Media that viewers demand transparency on the Bidens NOW!
Enough is enough — America refuses to be kept wondering about our compromised national security, corrupt sweetheart business deals, and pay-to-play schemes detailed in the Hunter Biden Laptop.
“Polling taken in April shows that nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that the president has been compromised by his family’s shady business dealings with China,” LifeSiteNews reported on July 1, 2022.
Even CNN has finally begun to admit that the Hunter Biden Laptop is a serious problem:
- Illegal gun purchase
- Sweetheart foreign Ukraine deals
- Political access to (then) Vice-President Joe Biden
- Federal probes and investigations
Voters MUST know for whom they are voting. Sound the alarm with our new petition! SIGN TODAY!
The First Amendments protects a Free Press to report the truth and protect the American people — but the mainstream media has betrayed its viewers, spinning pro-communist and pro-globalist narratives that are HURTING voters!
Voters MUST learn about President Joe Biden’s compromised business dealings with China, Russia, Ukraine, and so many others — all pointing to the Hunter Biden Laptop.
DEMAND THE TRUTH: WE WILL NO LONGER BE MISLED BY THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA!
Media executives must learn that their viewership will continue tanking as long as executives run cover for their far-left base.
Tell media executives that you will NO LONGER watch or trust their network until they fully reveal the contents of the Hunter Biden Laptop!
It is not enough to simply change the channel. We must leave a parting shot to mainstream media executives telling them WHY consumers are refusing to watch any longer.
SIGN NOW: DO NOT LET THE MEDIA SPIN THEIR OWN FAILURE BY DENYING US TRANSPARENCY!
This is the only way to save the future of the media and win back a trustworthy Free Press for future generations.
There is no telling what the mainstream media will continue to hide, deny, and deflect if they decide to run cover for the most powerful man in the world — the President of the United States.
*** There is no time to lose—we refuse to let important information remain hidden from the American voters any longer! ***
The Hunter Biden Laptop story is the single greatest piece of evidence indicating that America’s national security is likely compromised.
We the People deserve to know the truth!
STAND WITH THE PEOPLE: SIGN OUR PETITION ASAP!

There have been over 20 attacks on pregnancy centers across the U.S., and a Catholic advocacy group has launched a map showing 140 attacks on Catholic churches as anti-Catholic violence increases across America.
Recently, pro-abortion activists defaced the doors of St. Bernard Catholic Church in Madison, Wisconsin as abortions ceased in the state after the reversal of Roe.
The violence appears to have no clear end in sight, with the Department of Homeland Security predicting terrorist attacks could continue “for weeks.”
Last week, Democrats unanimously voted to block a resolution condemning the ongoing violence against churches and pregnancy centers across the country.
