House Majority Whip Steve Scalise Shot in Virginia, Aides Also Hit

House Television

Pelsoi said she also prays that Donald Trump's presidency is successful and that his family remains safe. "We are all praying for those who were attacked and for their families", Ryan said. "For them to be so sanctimonious is something that I really am nearly sad for myself".

Pelosi said she would be asking for updates on Scalise's condition "every five minutes".

"We have an obligation to point out what his policies are doing for everyday American people", Turner said.

President Donald Trump says that wounded Congressman Steve Scalise's condition is more hard than people first realized. After medical personnel arrived, he said he retrieved Scalise's phone and made the first call to Scalise's wife to notify her of the shooting. Increasingly, people - in Congress and out of it - are unable to do that. He said the two officers were in surgery on Wednesday afternoon. These were our brothers and sisters who ran into danger and saved countless lives. Mike Bishop, Jack Bergman, Chuck Fleischmann and Joe Barton were also at the field.

Congressman Steve Scalise, a House Republican from Louisiana, was shot by a rifle-wielding gunman Wednesday at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va. The gunman was shot and taken to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries.




The business of the House is resuming a day after a rifle-wielding attacker opened fire on Republican lawmakers practicing for a charity baseball game. Similarly, Democrats say their own harsh criticisms of Trump are an appropriate response to the unprecedented actions he has taken in office, including his sharp criticisms of the judicial system, the media, and his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.

The shooting occurred at a popular park and baseball complex in Alexandria, Virginia, where Republican lawmakers and others were gathered for a morning practice about 7 a.m.

What was celebrated instead was the bravery of Rep. Steve Scalise's Capitol Police detail, who prevented a tragedy of epic proportions. "Somewhere in the 90's Republicans decided on the politics of personal destruction as they went after the Clintons".

Republican Representative Luke Messer, who supports more spending for Capitol Police, said there is a template that could instruct Congress on how to enhance security for the 535 lawmakers when they hold events in their home states. The gunman, identified as James Hodgkinson of IL, died due to injuries he sustained during the shooting, President Donald Trump announced in a statement from the White House on Wednesday.

Votes were canceled in the House on Wednesday, but on Thursday they were taking place. "I hear Steve Scalise over near 2nd base scream", Brooks noted.
