Among those was House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, who remains hospitalized after undergoing several surgeries after being shot in the hip.

He had targets in his sights and a list of names in his pocket.

Catherine Herridge reported on "Tucker Carlson" tonight that all of the congressmen are associated with the conservative House Freedom Caucus.

U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) talks to reporters after a gunman opened fire on Republican members of Congress during a baseball practice near Washington in Alexandria, Virginia, U.S., June 14, 2017.

The Democrats won 11-2, then turned right around and gave the trophy to the Republican team to put in Scalise's office.

The new rule came about after an OR resident's court order authorized a sex change from female to "non-binary". It did not need legislative action because state law does not specify that drivers must choose male or female.

The FBI has contacted one of the men on the list to inform him that the shooting may have been part of a planned assassination attempt and not a random spontaneous act, the Daily Caller reported. Duncan said he told him it was a Republican ball practice, and Hodgkinson started to shoot them. He was shot by a responding officer and later died from his wounds.

President Donald Trump said Friday that Steve Scalise "took a bullet for all of us". He was also a volunterr for Sen. Bernie Sanders' campaign, Hodgkinson's social media profile was filled with violent-sounding rhetoric against the Republican Party.

He spewed left-wing talking points on Facebook, consistently railing against Republicans and the wealthy.

The shooter fired repeatedly with a rifle at the baseball field in Alexandria before being wounded in a gunfight with Capitol Hill police who were at the scene, lawmakers said.

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 had no idea this was going to happen, and I don't know what to say about it".
