Congressional Baseball Game breaks records for fundraising ticket sales

The list was written on notepad paper, the Daily Caller reported, citing law enforcement sources. Investigators have not determined the goal of the list and they are still trying to determine its meaning.

Sue Hodgkinson said she was informed of her husband's involvement when a reporter from ABC news called just hours after the attack. She said she hasn't been with her husband since March, when he moved to the Washington D.C. area.

Duncan had said that before he left the practice he was approached by a man he later believed to be Hodgkinson who had asked whether Republicans or Democrats were on the baseball field. "I can't wrap my head around it", she said.

"I have never said life sucks, only the policies of the Republicans", he wrote in one letter. "There's nothing I could do about it".

She explained, her husband sold his southern IL home inspection business months ago. "I just want you all to go away and leave my neighbors in peace".


Sanders took to the senate floor on Wednesday, shortly after he was informed the 66 year-old alleged gunman had volunteered with his presidential campaign.

That much was obvious, in her body language and her answers to reporters. "I can not believe it", she said. Dr. Jack Sava of MedStar Washington Hospital Center said it's a "good possibility" that the Louisiana Republican will be able to return to work in his full capacity. He is still in the ICU in critical condition.

Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and remains hospitalized. Zack Barth, an aide to Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas), was shot in the calf. They recovered a 7.62 caliber rifle and a 9 mm handgun, which they say Hodgkinson bought legally. Among other things, Hodgkinson said Trump had screwed up the country "more than anyone in the history of this country". The man expressed grievances online about President Donald Trump and Republicans, but authorities said they're still working to determine a motive. Hodgkinson was transferred to hospital and died of his injuries shortly after.

According to an Federal Bureau of Investigation statement issued on Thursday, agents also recovered a cell phone, a computer, and a camera in the shooter's van.
