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

California Congressman Moves to Impeach President Trump

One bartender said he spent many evenings quietly sipping cans of Budweiser by himself. It is now unclear whether his wife had been in touch with her husband recently, the Washington Post reported. By Tuesday, he seemed ready to come home, asking a mechanic to make sure his tires would survive the trip back to IL.

The amateur footage captured by Noah Nathan posted on Facebook shows attacker James T. Hodgkinson unloading 100 rounds at the Wednesday game, critically wounding House GOP Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana and hitting aides and Capitol police. "How dare they?" retorted Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, pointing to a year of venomous attacks by Republicans including President Donald Trump.

One way to prevent future attacks, then, could be to take domestic violence more seriously, advocates say. The Del Ray Service Center is known as a "neutral zone" of sorts when it comes to politics; lawmakers of both parties take their cars there. Friends describe him as a normal guy who was "a passionate progressive".

Mr Steve Scalise, the third-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives, was in critical condition after surgery for a bullet wound to the hip. Hodgkinson maintained a social media presence that was pro-Bernie Sanders and anti-Republican.

Mark's profile noted that Hodgkinson's brother, Michael, told The New York Times that the alleged gunman "wasn't happy with the way things were going, the election results and stuff" and that the attack was "totally out of the blue".

Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) walked back comments blaming Democratic rhetoric for partly inspiring a shooting at a Republican Congressional baseball practice.

The rifle he used was an SKS, according to two law enforcement officials, which is a semiautomatic rifle designed in the Soviet Union.

She agreed to speak to the press only if they would leave her property afterward, the deputy had told reporters beforehand.

Defenders of the production say they have a First Amendment right to express their anger at Trump that way.

Russia claims it has killed al-Baghdadi
Since then his whereabouts have been unknown, with reports that he was hiding in the desert rather than in any urban location. In April 2015, he was reported dead after an injury, and in October 2016, reports emerged that al-Baghdadi was poisoned.

Jeff Sessions Testifies Before Senate Intelligence Committee
Sessions recused himself on March 2, one day after the Washington Post reported that he met with Russia's ambassador to the U.S. Sessions had previously recused himself in the investigation into Russian interference with the us election.

The YMCA says they never received any complaints about him, and no staff member "recalls observing inappropriate or unusual behavior by him", the statement said.

Married to James Hodgkinson for almost 30 years, she declined to answer questions about his politics and whether they had consumed him. And certainly we know that he had a criminal record that shows that he's faced a charge of battery which was later dropped.

After Hodgkinson retreated to his home, he was confronted by the boyfriend of the woman he punched. Two members of the Capitol Police, Crystal Griner and David Bailey, were also wounded. He dragged her out of the vehicle angrily.

"I had no idea this was going to happen, and I don't know what to say about it", she said.

"I was a little shocked out of all the cities in the United States it would be a little Midwest town like this", said Claire Hatch, a lifelong resident.

At the YMCA, Hodgkinson was nondescript: he always wore black trousers and golf shirts, sometimes beige, sometimes gray, sometimes black.

Sue Hodgkinson, who works at a tax firm, said she and James didn't see much of each other from January to March because of her job.

"I thought he was a new homeless person" in the neighborhood, Robishaw said.
