James Hodgkinson's Wife Makes Statement Outside Belleville Home

James Hodgkinson's Wife Makes Statement Outside Belleville Home”

Five people were sent to the hospital with gun wounds, including congressional staffers, Capitol Police officers, and Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), who remains in critical condition at MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

The couple had been married for 30 years, she said, and he'd sold nearly everything from his business before moving out to D.C.in March. As he was leaving the baseball field, Duncan said Hodgkinson asked him if the practice was Democratic or Republican congressmen. She said he talked a lot about politics but, when pressed, said she didn't want to discuss her husband's views.

"We have a president who says, 'I could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and nobody would care, '" she said, referring to President Trump's campaign. As I walk across the parking lot to the vehicle, a gentleman approaches me and says, 'Can you tell me, the team today, is that Democrats or Republicans?' I told him it was the Republicans and he said, 'OK, thanks, ' and turned around.

Exasperated and seemingly at a loss to explain the shooting, she said: "I don't know anything about this". "There's nothing I could do about it".

Before James Hodgkinson left his home in Belleville, Ill., in March, he sold almost everything he owned from his businesses.

Sue Hodgkinson said her husband left the couple's home in March to move to Washington, shortly after their adopted daughter moved back into the house with her two-year-old son.

O'Connor said Bost's office has turned over all of their communications from Hodgkinson to U.S. Capitol Police. He had run out of money, his wife told reporters.

WND was the first news agency to identify all 16 GOP members of Congress present at the field Wednesday morning - 14 House members along with Sens. Authorities said James Hodgkinson expressed grievances online about the president and Republicans, but they're still working to determine a concrete motive for the shooting.

Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old former home builder and lead removal contractor, had run-ins with police but no felony convictions. He is still listed in critical condition.The statement noted that he has done better over the past 24 hours but will require further surgery and will stay in the hospital for some time.

"I did tell Joe that I love him before the game and I love him after the game".
