Would-be gunman launched into Trump tirade before shooting

Would-be gunman launched into Trump tirade before shooting

Elsewhere in America, people learned last week who Hodgkinson was: the seemingly deranged gunman who, fueled by leftist rage, opened fire on a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va., grievously wounding Representative Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the Republican whip, and three others.

This hapless pair of reporters, who didn't give Hodgkinson's name until Paragraph 9, somehow missed, or refused to report, additional details reported at the Daily Caller, Fox News, and even the New York Times.

Duncan has said he spoke with Hodgkinson just before the shooting.

Lindsay Rann, public affairs specialist with the FBI's Washington field office, declined to comment on the alleged list, citing the ongoing investigation.

But the existence of the list, confirmed by "multiple sources" to the Daily Caller, indicates the attack was a pre-planned political assassination rather than a random act of rage. Duncan said he told him it was Republicans. They tried to get the perspective out there that Hodgkinson's attack on the congressmen was due to his unstable mental conditions and it had nothing to do partisan hatred or politics.

Reps. Scot DesJarlais (R-TN) (pronounced day-zharr-LAY), Trent Franks (R-AZ), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Jim Jordan (R-OH), Mo Brooks (R-AL) and Morgan Griffith (R-VA). Hard to imagine what else it could be, but the 66-year-old gunman was shot and killed by DC police, so he is not available to shed light on the list for us. Doctors upgraded his condition from critical to serious on June 17, according to a statement from the hospital.

The FBI is still investigating the case and is looking through Hodgkinson's belongings, including his cellphone, computer and camera.

President Donald Trump called Griner and another officer who responded to the shooting, officer David Bailey, heroes. A government official says the suspect in the Virginia shooting that injured Rep. Steve Scalise and several others has been identified Hodgkinson.

The game raised more than a $1 million for charity Thursday night.
