The unhinged left have become ANIMALS in their hatred against Trump and the Republican Party!
James T. Hodgkinson, the left-wing Bernie Sanders terrorist who opened fire on a group of Republican congressmen and staffers, reportedly has an assassination list of Republican politicians he intended to kill. The list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, TheDC has confirmed.
The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter’s pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the investigation. The list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, TheDC has confirmed.
The FBI has contacted at least one of the three congressmen to inform them of their inclusion on the list.
None of the three offices would offer comments on the record when asked about the names on the list. Brooks and Franks’ office further directed all inquiries to the Capitol police, who declined to comment. The FBI’s Washington field office, which is handling the investigation, also provided no comment, citing the ongoing investigation.
All three representatives are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which contains the lower chamber’s most conservative members. Both Duncan and Brooks attended Wednesday’s baseball practice.
Shooter James Hodgkinson moved to Alexandria from Illinois in April, the same month New York Times wrote article giving minute details about the Congressional Baseball Game, the time, location, the capitol police inside their black SUVs and what they would be wearing.
Before firing his rifle, James Hodgkinson asked lawmakers, “Are those Republicans or Democrats?” , gunning down Rep. Steve Scalise and his security detail.
“When members of Congress practice in the early mornings in an Alexandrea, Va., public park for their Congressional Baseball Game, plainclothes United States Capital Police are sitting there in a blac S.U.V.”
Rand Paul said it would have been a massacre if not for capitol police who responded bravely when the shooter was doing his rampage.
SEN. STEVE SCALISE STILL IN CRITICAL CONDITION AFTER SHOT BY TRUMP HATER JAMES HODGKINSON AT BASEBALL PRACTICE
( Daily Mail ) House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was in a critical condition in hospital on Wednesday afternoon after he was shot by a Trump-hating gunman who opened fire on Republican congressional baseball practice.
The Louisiana congressman was shot in the hip as he stood on second base at the field in Alexandria, Virginia at 7am on Wednesday. His staff initially described his condition as ‘stable’ but the Medstar Hospital in Washington DC later said that Scalise was in critical condition after having surgery.
He was among five injured when James T. Hodgkinson, 66, opened fire on the Republicans with an assault rifle from the third base dugout at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia, as the group practiced batting at around 7.00am.
Ohio Rep. Brad Wenstrup, who tended to Scalise on the scene immediately after the incident, told CNN he was concerned that he was unable to locate an exit wound for the bullet that he said hit the lawmaker in the hip.
He said he posited that the bullet might have impacted on the hip bone, but raised a concern that the bullet could have ricocheted. In that case, it could have caused internal bleeding or impacted internal organs.
Wenstrup is a podiatrist who served in Iraq. The lack of a clear path for the bullet through Scalise’s leg could explain why he remained in critical condition following surgery. Wenstrup raised concerns about fluid loss in the case of Scalise.
Lawmakers who witnessed the incident described a period of time running several minutes where Scalise lay bleeding but was unable to get medical attention because of the active shooter situation. He indicated he was able to get control of the external wound, but wasn’t aware of whether there were internal injuries or internal blood loss. Rep. Mo Brooks described working with Wenstrup to use a belt to make a tourniquet to stop blood loss.
