Wounded US lawmaker 'in some trouble', Trump says

Wounded US lawmaker 'in some trouble', Trump says

James T. Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Ill., who was gunned down by police to end the shooting at Simpson Field in Alexandria, Va., appears to have maintained two Facebook pages, each replete with profane anti-Trump posts.

Members of Congress practice for months for the event, and typically don the jerseys of a team from back home.

One day after a gunman opened fire on Republican lawmakers practicing for a charity baseball game, lawmakers in Washington are still reeling from the tragedy.

The Republican lawmakers and their aides had almost finished batting practice at an Alexandria, Va., park Wednesday when they heard a single crack through the sticky, early-morning air.

Democrat Cedric Richmond, a fellow Louisiana congressman, said as many others did that Scalise is a fighter. Scalise was shot in the hip and is in critical condition at a Washington hospital.

Several members said Wednesday that, at the very least, security should be upgraded for any off-Hill gathering involving more than a few lawmakers. "We've had a very, very divided country for many years, and I have a feeling that Steve has made a great sacrifice, but there could be some unity being brought to our country".

However, Collins said while it is "extraordinarily safe" within the walls of the Capital compound, it's more unsafe when they are out and about in their own districts.

How many victims in the London Fire? "Thirty-seven people remain in hospital, including 17 in critical condition, Cundy said ". The disaster triggered a wave of mourning in a country already battered by a string of terror attacks .

Bishop said two of the agents rushed onto the field as the congressmen and staffers fled.

The hospital where Rep. Steve Scalise is recuperating from a gunshot wound says he "remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours".

Numerous players in the congressional game Thursday night are wearing Louisiana State University hats in honor of Scalise, a graduate of the school, as they assemble at Nationals Park in Washington.

MedStar Washington Hospital, which is treating the congressman and Griner, said Scalise is suffering from fractured bones and injured internal organs. In the immediate aftermath Wednesday the extent of his injuries was not widely known.

The shooter was identified as James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old home inspector from IL. In this image from House Television video, House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis., pauses as he speaks Wednesday, June 14, 2017, on the House floor at the Capitol in Washington, about the shooting at the congressional baseball pract.

After the mass shooting, the Congressional Baseball Game announced they had added the Capitol Police Memorial Fund to their list of charities.

Earlier Thursday, Republican lawmakers met behind closed doors to share reflections and pray. They signed oversized cards for the wounded. But Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in the House of Representatives, criticized some Republicans who have blamed the shooting on vitriol from the political left. He called for replacing "the attacks of hateful personal politics and resistance" with respect.

Rep. Steve King of Iowa said over Twitter, "The center of America is disappearing, and the violence is incited by the leading cultural voices of the Left". She noted that she has received numerous threats herself over the years, and is now the target of millions of dollars in negative ads in a House district in Georgia where a hard-fought special election will take place next week.

The other source said Trump used a vulgar phrase to describe the House bill and told the senators, "We need to be more generous". And that brings us back to Trump's comments and the really hard political maneuver the GOP is trying to pull off in the Senate .

She did not specify which comments by Republicans she objected to.

The House majority whip, 51, is a five-term Republican from Louisiana. The popular and gregarious lawmaker is known for his love of baseball and handed out commemorative bats when he secured the job of House whip several years ago.

The shooting occurred at a popular park and baseball complex in Alexandria, Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington, where Republican lawmakers and others were gathered for a morning practice about 7 a.m.

It's a visible reminder of the attack that's bridged political parties, even as the game goes on. Griner was hospitalized Wednesday after she was shot in the ankle while Bailey "was treated and released having sustained a minor injury", Capitol Police said in a statement. He had a history of posting angry messages against Trump and other Republicans on social media. All the time he was bleeding, we were under fire. He had been fielding balls at second base when he was hit, and dragged himself away from the infield, leaving a trail of blood until colleagues could rush to his aid.

"I know as sure as I'm standing here right now that there's no way we would have lived through that", Rep. Mike Bishop, R-Michigan, told "CBS Evening News" anchor Scott Pelley.

A third agent shot at the gunman from behind the first-base dugout, where Sen. The man calmly asked which party's lawmakers were practicing and Duncan told him they were the Republicans.

He led a House floor Democratic sit-in previous year when Republicans refused to consider gun control legislation.
