Netanyahu: Israel stands with victims of shooting attack on Republicans

Congressional Baseball Game breaks records for fundraising ticket sales

Authorities searched his vehicle, a white cargo van, and his IL residence. "It's time to come home", the report said.

When he left, she said, Hodgkinson told her he was going to Washington, "work with people to change the tax brackets". By Tuesday, he seemed ready to come home, asking a mechanic to make sure his tires would survive the trip back to IL.

Members of the U.S. Congress took the field for their traditional Republicans vs. Democrats baseball game on Thursday, with many wearing hats to honor Representative Steve Scalise, who was critically wounded by a gunman as his Republican team practiced a day before. And it was at that auto shop that his anger flared during small talk with the mechanic.

"In 2012, Hodgkinson took part in a protest outside the downtown Belleville post office".

Over the last several weeks, Hodgkinson spent time at a YMCA near the site of the shooting, sitting with a computer in the lobby or at a table in an exercise area that overlooked the baseball field. Authorities said Hodgkinson had several minor run-ins with the law in recent years and belonged to a Facebook group called "Terminate the Republican Party".

Harlan Hill, a New York-based political consultant and Trump supporter, said no one should blame Sanders personally.

Many lawmakers in both parties, as well as the president, called for unity after the shooting. His voice got loud and deep.

Scalise, 51, a Louisiana Republican who is the No. 3 House Republican, remained in critical condition at a hospital a few miles from the stadium after undergoing a third surgery on Thursday. According to the, a account that appeared to be associated with Hodgkinson was found to have anti-Republican and anti-Trump posts and had posts supporting Sanders.

It was not clear if Hodgkinson had planned the attack, or for how long.

Before James Hodgkinson left his home in Belleville, Ill., in March, he sold almost everything he owned from his businesses. His name is Dale Walsh.

Authorities believe Hodgkinson had been in the Alexandria area since March, living out of a cargo van and not working, Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Tim Slater said. And certainly we know that he had a criminal record that shows that he's faced a charge of battery which was later dropped. The charges were dismissed later that year, according to the court clerk. He allegedly punched a woman who was a friend of the girl.

The assailant, prepared with "a lot of ammo", fought a gun battle with police before he, too, was shot and later died.

Ten years earlier, a foster daughter committed suicide by dousing herself with gasoline and setting herself on fire inside her auto, the Belleville News-Democrat reported.

Asked about her husband's decision to leave for an extended period of time, Hodgkinson said that her daughter and two-year-old granddaughter had recently moved home.

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

The former mayor of Alexandria, Bill Euille, told the Post he had spent the last month and a half talking to Hodgkinson almost every morning. "But he never really implied one way or the other that he was pro-Democrat, anti-GOP Republican or anything like that". Brennwald thought it was odd he never saw Hodgkinson exercise or wear workout clothes and considered asking a staffer about him but never did, he said.
