Possible Assassination List of GOP Lawmakers Found on Scalise Shooter's Body

Possible Assassination List of GOP Lawmakers Found on Scalise Shooter's Body

Congressional shooter James Hodgkinson had in his pocket a list containing the names of three Republican congressmen when he was shot, according to reports published Friday.

Hodgkinson opened fire on congressman and their aides on Wednesday while they practiced at a baseball field in Alexandria.

According to officials briefed on the FBI investigation, the list included congressmen Trent Franks of Arizona, Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, Mo Brooks of Alabama, and a few others that officials would not reveal.

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.

Davis said he was looking for a "positive and constructive tone" to deal with the myriad issues dividing both sides. We're still pretty much in the dark about what that deal might look like.

How could it last when some conservative lawmakers and commentators are already blaming progressives and liberals for the shooting that left Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La) in critical condition after surgery to fix damage to his hip and internal organs.

But in the face of all evidence that Hodgkinson was a Democrat animated to go on a shooting rampage by his own political frustrations, New York Times political reporter Glenn Thrush looked to Trump. Duncan said he told him it was a Republican ball practice, and Hodgkinson started to shoot them.

It's still unclear if the names on the list - which includes Republican Reps.

Hodgkinson died at the hospital Wednesday after a shootout with Scalise's security detail and the Alexandria Police Department. After he underwent a second surgery for internal injuries and a broken leg, doctors said late Thursday that his condition was critical but improving. Griner remained hospitalized at MedStar Hospital after getting shot in the ankle, and Dr. Jack Sava of the Medstar hospital described her in good condition.

According to an Federal Bureau of Investigation statement issued on Thursday, agents also recovered a cell phone, a computer, and a camera in the shooter's van.

Rep. Steve Scalise was shot when a gunman opened fire at a GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, VA.

The gunman was believed to have harbored unfavorable views toward Republicans at large, including President Donald Trump.
