Wife: Man who shot congressman wanted to work on tax policy

Lawmaker critical, 4 others shot at Congress charity baseball practice

This undated handout police booking photo obtained June 14, 2017 shows James T. Hodgkinson. "It's bipartisan, it's a charity, for crying out loud, it's in Washington D.C., we'll be able to honor Scalise and those others who have hurt". The Chicago Battered Women's Network's most recent Court Watch Report from 2013 lists dozens of cases in which protective orders were denied after abuse charges were dismissed, or inappropriate statements were made - such as when one judge told a woman to simply "learn how to get along" with her abusive partner "given that they have a child together".

Hodgkinson allegedly opened fire, wounding at least five people including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.). He's still in critical condition Thursday at MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

Also hurt but released from hospitals were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.

Trump returned to the White House immediately after the visit. The president then tweeted: "Rep. Steve Scalise, one of the truly great people, is in very tough shape - but he is a real fighter".

Robert Becker, director of Sanders' Iowa campaign, said staff workers could not recall Hodgkinson. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-AL) was shot in the hip but has undergone surgery for his wound and is now stable.

Hodgkinson had slammed Mr Trump on Facebook and reportedly wrote: "You are Truly the Biggest A** Hole We Have Ever Had in the Oval Office".

On Facebook, Hodgkinson was a member of a group called "Terminate the Republican Party", a fact that seemed to take on new meaning in light of an account from South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan, who said that as he was preparing to leave the baseball field, a man politely asked him whether it was a Democrat or Republican team before quietly walking off. Sanders acknowledged Wednesday that Hodgkinson had apparently been among many volunteers on his 2016 campaign.

"Let me be as clear as I can be".

The man suspected of shooting at members of a Republican congressional baseball team in Virginia was, according to his brother, critical of President Trump and upset over the election.

Doyle put his hand on Barton's shoulder several times as the Republican, who was at the practice with his son, recalled the horror of realizing that friends and co-workers were under attack.

"It is not okay for our country to take that difference in ideology and allow that to turn toward hatred and turn toward physical attacks", Graves said.

The Washington Post, citing law enforcement officials, reported that Hodgkinson owned a home inspection business but had not renewed his inspection license after it expired in November.

Congressman Rodney Davis told CNN he was at the plate at the time, and Scalise was in the field at second base. "I think today we're beginning to see the ramifications of that hate and we've got to dial this back and become civil again".

They left after half an hour, with Trump speaking to more Capitol Police officers on his way out.

"I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw this myself in the late 70s in San Francisco", said the then-speaker of the House, referencing the infamous assassination of a city councilman and mayor in the city.

Barton had arrived at the US Capitol still wearing his red baseball uniform. Police shot Hodgkinson, who later died. "Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society, and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms", he said. Scalise was shot Wednesday, June 14, 2017, at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, .
