Stephen Colbert Praises Trump After Alexandria Shooting

Senate Sergeant-at Arms Edward McGinnis left questions former Capitol Police officer William Kaiser after Kaiser fired twice at a senator

"As reports spread online that shooting suspect James Hodgkinson had expressed anti-Republican sentiments, some conservative political figures and alt-right news outlets began speculating on whether Wednesday's attack on a GOP congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va., was connected to left-wing rhetoric against President Donald Trump".

Scalise is still in critical condition at Medstar Washington Hospital Center, but an update Thursday indicated that his condition had improved after a second surgery.

"Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip".

"He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding".

Williams, a Republican coach who injured his leg and ankle while diving for cover during the shooting, also said it was important to play ball as planned.

He also alleged that the U.S. actively interferes with electoral campaigns of other countries. "You and I met yesterday evening". He has discussed with Kislyak the sanctions placed against Russian Federation by Barack Obama.

"It was important to come together to show bipartisanship", said New Orleans resident Caroline Waller, who had traveled to Washington to watch the game. "I have a feeling that Steve has made a great sacrifice, but there could be some unity being brought to our country". The attacker, who was shot by Scalise's security detail and later died, was an IL man whose social media postings showed anger at Trump and the Republicans.

Trump and his wife Melania visited Scalise in the hospital Wednesday evening, bringing the injured congressman flowers.

Vice President Mike Pence paid a visit Thursday morning to Scalise, his former colleague when he served in the House.

Stephen Colbert started off his show Wednesday night condemning the Alexandria shooting where Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise and four other people were shot after a gunman opened fire at a congressional baseball practice.

The annual charity game, a staple in Washington, D.C., since 1909, pits GOP and Democratic lawmakers against each other in a baseball showdown.

Ahmed said he alerted his aunt, whom he lived with on the eighth floor, to the fire and then began "knocking on neighbors' doors". An investigation into the cause of the blaze, the worst in the British capital in a generation, was under way.

Members of the Republican team pray before the Democrats and Republicans face off in the annual Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park in Washington, U.S., June 15, 2017. There were reports of death threats being called in to congressional Democrats and Republicans alike.

The Capitol Police Memorial Fund was added as one of the charities that will benefit from the event, the game announced.

"I'll miss the banter with him back and forth", Richmond said of the heckling they usually exchange from opposing dugouts.

Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful".

The business of the House is resuming a day after a rifle-wielding attacker opened fire on Republican lawmakers practicing for a charity baseball game. His aide, Zack Barth, who was shot by the Virginia assailant, walked across the field on crutches.
