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

The wife of the man authorities say shot Rep. Scalise remained in critical condition on Friday although his condition has improved, doctors said.

The six representatives on the list are all members of the Freedom Caucus, which contains the most conservative members of the House of Representatives.

The FBI has contacted the congressmen to inform them of their inclusion on the list. Franks added that "it's clear that (the shooting) was premeditated", but he declined to confirm the existence of a possible list, citing the ongoing investigation.

Trump returned to the White House immediately after the visit.

Both Duncan and Brooks attended Wednesday's baseball practice.

Back in IL at least one friend of Hodgkinson - who didn't give his full name - defended him, saying, "I just want to let people know he wasn't evil, that he was exhausted of some of the politics going on".

Democratic and Republican lawmakers have roundly condemned Hodgkinson's actions and called for a moment of unity immeidately after the shooting.

We now have video of the gun battle between law enforcement officers and the GOP baseball shooter.

House whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) was wounded by Hodgkinson.

The FBI has recovered and processed his van, weapons, and cell phone in Virginia.

Agents continue to look into the shooter's activities and social media presence in the months leading up to the attack. He belonged to a number of anti-Republican Facebook groups and had a criminal record that included charges of resisting a peace officer, eluding police, driving under the influence and criminal property damage.

Once Trump won the election, Hodgkinson continued his protests, moving to Washington D.C, where he lived out of his auto so he could continue the fight, ABC New reports.

He spewed left-wing talking points on Facebook, consistently railing against Republicans and the wealthy. Here's what we know so far about those who were injured in the attack.

"I am sickened by this despicable act", Sanders said on Wednesday.

Russell said that when the first gunshot rang out Wednesday morning she had just finished working out at the gym inside the YMCA - about 30 feet away from the baseball field where Scalise and more than two dozen other Republican members of Congress were practicing for the congressional baseball game.

Robert Becker, director of Sanders' Iowa campaign, said staff workers could not recall Hodgkinson.

The couple had been married for 30 years, she said, and he'd sold nearly everything from his business before moving out to D.C.in March.

Hodgkinson's time spent volunteering on Vermont Sen.
