Republicans, Democrats Play Ball for 'Team Scalise'

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 00:54

President Donald Trump said Thursday that wounded GOP Congressman Steve Scalise is "in some trouble" but "he's going to be OK, we hope", offering that assessment as a shaken U.S. House gaveled back into session a day after the shooting of Scalise and others at a baseball field.

Although he remains in critical condition, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise stands a good chance for an "excellent" recovery after being shot at a charity baseball practice outside Washington this week.

Though Scalise was conscious at the scene after he was shot and his office said he talked to his wife before his first surgery, he was in shock by the time he arrived at the hospital, according to Sava.

"By playing tonight, you are showing the world that we will not be intimidated by threats, acts of violence, or assaults on our democracy", Trump said.

The FBI said in its statement Thursday that it had also processed Hodgkinson's van, which had been parked at a YMCA parking lot adjacent to the park where the attack took place. Also shot were a congressional aide, a lobbyist and a Capitol Police officer.

A congressman and a former staffer shot at baseball practice remain in critical condition and will require multiple surgeries. "When emotions get involved, it can pump you up or pull you down".

James T. Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Ill., who belonged to a number of anti-Republican groups, opened fire on the GOP baseball team as it held what would have been the final practice before Thursday's game against the Democrats in Washington at Nationals Park.

Scalise, 51, and four others were wounded when an IL man opened fire Wednesday morning on the team practice in Alexandria. He died of his injuries on Wednesday afternoon. On Twitter, reporters, fans and lawmakers shared updates and photos that reflected that sense of unity. They signed oversized cards for the wounded.

Many lawmakers in both parties, as well as the president, called for unity after the shooting.

The game is a long-standing summer tradition in Washington, with teams of Republican and Democratic lawmakers competing on the ball field, even in present times, when fractious political debates are the norm. They released photos of guns similar to the handgun and rifle that were used in the attack, which officials have said were purchased legally. "How dare they?" Pelosi exclaimed.


The game raised more than a million dollars for charity.

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

Lawmakers went ahead with the charity baseball game on Thursday to honor Scalise.

A cell phone, a camera and a computer were recovered from Hodgkinson's vehicle, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

CBS News reported that the note was not necessarily an "assassination list", but that it indicated Hodgkinson had recently focused on the individuals on the list. Scalise was hit, and crawled out of the infield, leaving a trail of blood, colleagues said.

Witnesses described the actions of the officers who brought down Hodgkinson as "heroic".

"As with any constitutional provision in the Bill of Rights, there are adverse aspects to each of those rights that we enjoy as people", says Brooks.

Ever since the 1999 Columbine High School shootings, Dine said, "Police departments across the country have changed the way they deal with active shooter situations".

Louisiana Rep. Cedric Richmond is the Democrats' star pitcher, and a close friend of Scalise's.
