President Donald Trump suggested Thursday, June 15th that Rep. Steve Scalise is in worse condition than many initially realized.
Steve Scalise, the Louisiana Republican shot Wednesday during congressional baseball practice, remains in critical condition "but has improved in the last 24 hours", MedStar Washington Hospital announced Thursday.
"ATF has conducted traces on these weapons and has determined that both were purchased by the shooter from federal firearms licensees", a joint statement from ATF, the FBI, the Alexandria Police Department and U.S. Capitol Police released Thursday said. The shooter was an IL man, James Hodgkinson, who had lashed out against President Donald Trump and Republicans over social media. He died after officers in Scalise's security detail and local police fired at him. His social media contained anti-Trump and anti-Republican posts. Authorities are investigating the incident but have not identified a motive.
President Trump delivered brief remarks before the game calling for unity and noting that the entire nation was praying for Scalise.
Trump said the universal support for Scalise and others wounded in the shooting might help heal the country's many political differences. "I'm prayerful he will pull through, and I hope he does", he said.
Over the past century the game has raised money for D.C. -area charities such as The Washington Literacy Center, the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington, and the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation.
The bullet entered Scalise's left hip and tore across his pelvis, cracking bones and injuring organs and blood vessels.
For now, Scalise remains in critical condition in the hospital's intensive care unit. Richmond, who plays for the Democratic team, said he had visited the hospital multiple times. "He's going to be OK".
Scalise was shot Wednesday morning as a gunman sprayed bullets into a GOP congressional baseball practice. "But you have long since earned my respect, and you deserve to be heard, and you are an honorable individual". Lewis led a House floor Democratic sit-in a year ago when Republicans refused to consider gun control legislation. It's a sentiment lawmakers frequently express after mass shootings or terrorist attacks, only to see their sharp oratorical elbows gradually return.
Underscoring the day's mood, the Rev. Patrick Conroy, the House chaplain, opened the day by seeking divine forgiveness "when we seem to forget that words matter and can become seeds that will bring bitter harvest".
Sava later told The Associated Press that Scalise's care is on track for someone with such a severe injury but that he still faces many risks to recovery.
The House of Representatives' No. 3 Republican leader was in grave condition when he was first shot.
The House used a voice vote Thursday to approve a resolution lauding the Capitol Police for protecting lawmakers and stating that "violence has no place" in society. A reading of the measure received a standing ovation.
Nor did he deny he has entered the miniscule ranks of sitting presidents who have become the subject of a criminal investigation. As a rule, there are a lot of career options for former FBI Directors and Attorneys General.
