Dems bridle as some in GOP blame shooting on the left

As for Scalise, he’s still in critical condition, but he’s improving.CBN News has confirmed the Federal Bureau of Investigation recovered a “hit list” with several names of Republican congressmen on the body of 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, the Alexandria shooter.She said she was married to James Hodgkinson for almost 30 years but they have not been together since March, when he moved to Washington, D.C. I spoke to one person who lives in the area, Marilyn Blaha, who says she knew him professionally years ago, says her brother was still a friend.Doctors say Scalise will be in the hospital for a “considerable period of time”.Investigators say he shot House Rep. Steve Scalise before he was killed by police who had been guarding the congressman. He’s had a second surgery and will be in the hospital a while.Rep. Steve Scalise was shot June 14, 2017 in Alexandria, Virginia, a House colleague told CNN, in what sources are calling an apparent “deliberate attack”. In a statement released Thursday morning, his family said Mika was shot in the chest and arm and suffered massive trauma, the Detroit News reports.Authorities also confirm Hodgkinson legally purchased a 9 mm handgun and an assault-style rifle from licensed firearms sellers. And the county that I’m in right now, St. Clair County, is politically purple.The FBI said Friday that law enforcement agents are still processing evidence taken from various sites in order to “assess the potential motivations of the single shooter”.Besides Scalise, the shooter also wounded Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner, along with a congressional aide and a lobbyist.The FBI said it had processed a white conversion van owned by Hodgkinson, which was parked at the YMCA adjacent to where the shooting happened.Hodgkinson, a Belleville, Ill., resident who officials said had been living out of his vehicle in Alexandria, Va., opened fire as Congress members and staffers practiced for a charity baseball game slated for Thursday.
