Shooter went to GOP baseball practice with list of names

Members of both congressional teams bow their heads for a moment of silence for shot Representative Steve Scalise in Washington Members of both congressional teams bow their heads for a moment of silence for shot Representative Steve Scalise in Washington

House Speaker Paul Ryan and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told CNN's Jake Tapper on "Erin Burnett OutFront" that despite party affiliation they were both on "Team Scalise" on Thursday. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said before the game, recalling past tragedies that many swore would reshape the nation's politics.

Trump's declaration in a crowded, sweltering auditorium was a direct rebuke to Obama, for whom the diplomatic opening with Cuba was a central accomplishment of his presidency.

The charities are the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington, Washington Literacy Center, the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation and, after Wednesday's shooting, the Capitol Police Memorial Fund.

The House majority whip was critically wounded when a gunman opened fire at the Republican baseball practice in Virginia on Wednesday. Other members of Congress are not afforded the same security as congressional leaders.

The GOP lawmakers' team was taking batting practice when gunshots rang out and chaos erupted.

It didn't take long for Washington's post-shooting talk of unity to begin fraying. He said political passions have only increased since then, particularly in recent months.

"It's another reminder that we need to be prepared and we need to stay vigilant and always alert and aware of our surroundings", he said.

He said that Scalise has been mostly sedated but they've been able to turn down his medication enough for him to respond to family members. "It's cathartic, getting beyond yesterday", he said.

At work Thursday, those pangs visited lawmakers like a too-familiar houseguest - stalking them down the Capitol's corridors, past the Senate chamber where a ferocious health care debate had already resumed, along the hall where some had stood one day earlier as survivors, still in dusted cleats and uniforms, unharmed but unsettled.

At the same time, USA shale oil producers have ramped up production, adding to stockpiles and keeping prices in check. In Nebraska, the average price Monday was $2.23, down 3 cents from a week ago and 7 cents from a year ago.


Several people were injured, including Rep. Scalise.

The House used a voice vote Thursday to approve a resolution lauding the Capitol Police for protecting lawmakers and stating that "violence has no place" in society. "We love you." Lewis led a House floor Democratic sit-in a year ago when Republicans refused to consider gun control legislation.

MacArthur said local law enforcement has helped with protection at public events in his district.

Richard Wagner, chief deputy of the St. Clair County, Ill., Sheriff's Dept., said there was nothing in Hodgkinson's record that would prevent him from legally owning firearms in IL.

"That gives me some comfort", he said, of the local police presence.

The new moves are only a partial reversal of Obama's policies, however, but they will burden the USA government with the complicated task of policing U.S.travel to Cuba to make sure there are no transactions with the military-linked conglomerate that runs much of the Cuban economy.

"In the grand scheme of things you're only talking about a million or so dollars and you're talking about saving lives", Richmond said. I thought he was dead.

Currently, the office allowance can not be used for home security.
