Scalise Shooter Had List With At Least 6 GOP Lawmakers’ Names
The FBI recovered the list with at least 6 other GOP Lawmakers’ names on it but they are not speculating why he made a list of the names.
Fox News has confirmed that the gunman who opened fire on Republican congressmen at an Alexandria, Va., baseball field on Wednesday had a list of at least six GOP lawmakers’ names at the time of the shooting.
The FBI recovered the list, which was reportedly handwritten by suspect James Hodgkinson, who shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and several others before he was killed by Capitol Police.
The names on the list reportedly include Reps. Scot DesJarlais (R-TN), Trent Franks (R-AZ), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Jim Jordan (R-OH), Mo Brooks (R-AL) and Morgan Griffith (R-VA).
Catherine Herridge reported on “Tucker Carlson” tonight that all of the congressmen are associated with the conservative House Freedom Caucus.
“Fox News understands that the Capitol Hill police have reached out independently to all of the offices on the list,” Herridge said. “Tonight, the offices are not commenting for our reporting.”
She added that law enforcement officials are cautioning against drawing conclusions about the list or the suspect’s motivations for having it until more information is available.
