Republican Representative Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip, and his aides were shot during baseball practice on Wednesday morning.
Scalise was shot in the hip and tried to drag himself off the field after he was shot.
The shooter was a Bernie supporter and is now dead.
James T. Hodgkinson was a Bernie Sanders supporter who was obsessed with Trump-Russia conspiracy theories conjured up by the lying Democrats and perpetuated by the fake news media. Hodgkinson called Trump a “traitor”, saying he has “destroyed our democracy. It’s time to destroy Trump & Co”. The liars in the media own this. They have pushed Trump-Russia hoax for months with ZERO evidence.
Screenshots of Hodgkinson’s Facebook posts (just in case his Facebook is deleted): *UPDATE* his Facebook page is GONE!
Hodgkinson shared a petition calling for President Trump’s impeachment for treason and having relationships with numerous Russian oligarchs including Vladimir Putin:
Another petition Hodgkinson shared asked past Presidents to urge Congress to launch an independent investigation over Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey, once again because of Trump’s involvement with Russia:
The questions raised by the timing and rationale behind Trump’s firing of James Comey at a time when he was requesting additional funds for the Investigation into the ties between the Trump team and Russian attempts to influence the election have the potential to create a constitutional crisis. Unless this issue is resolved beyond reproach, it has the potential to undermine our citizens’ faith in the rule of law and our system of checks and balances that is supposed to constrain the abuse of power.
Hodgkinson was also a fan of left-wing media figures like Rachel Maddow who incessantly push Russian conspiracy theories. As TGP previously reported, Rachel Maddow spends 53% of her airtime dedicated to obsessing over Donald Trumps supposed connections to Russia.
