An attack on Republicans is an attack on all of us

Congressional Baseball Game Is Still On Despite Virginia Shooting, House Speaker Paul Ryan Announces to Bipartisan Cheers

Pelosi went on to point out the past rhetoric that came from Republicans, including President Donald Trump.

The top-ranking Democrat in the House, Rep. Price wouldn't answer yes or no.

The day after Nancy Pelosi emphasized the need to bring Republicans and Democrats together in the wake of the congressional baseball shooting, she attacked Republicans for creating the hostile environment. Steve King and Chris Collins, who blamed left-wing anti-Trump rhetoric for the shooting, prompted an angry response from the House Democratic leader.

The lawmakers FOX6 News spoke with Wednesday said that precaution will continue. "There's no other reason for what happened".

The California Democrat said she's received incessant threats throughout her life in public service and won't let her grandchildren answer her phone at home due to ugly calls she receives. "And you have to say Alexandria is a crystal clear result of all these lies". The shooter was identified as James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old home inspector from IL.

The Wisconsin Republican praised the efforts of Capitol police officers and other law enforcement. Mo Brooks, R-Alabama. He said that he and his GOP colleagues had felt hopeless as the gunfire continued and they saw Scalise alone and hit out on the field.

Hours after the House majority whip was shot during a practice for a charity baseball game, his fellow lawmakers took to the floors of the Senate and House of Representatives with impassioned statements. After medical personnel arrived, he said he retrieved Scalise's phone and made the first call to Scalise's wife to notify her of the shooting.

Scalise's leadership position comes with a traveling security detail.

"I think we can give them more resources", Pelosi said of the police force that oversees members and visitors to the Capitol.

He noted in an apparent reference to Trump that "I never had confrontations and fights at my rallies".

Ryan added that the partisan bickering "goes too far", placing the blame on both sides. A routinely-divided Senate passed a sweeping sanctions bill aimed at Russian Federation and Iran on a 98-2 vote Thursday. Members walked over to those Republican lawmakers who witnessed the attack and checked in on them. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., said Thursday. We'll root for our team.

Texas Rep. Roger Williams, who coaches the GOP team, said that one of his aides, Zack Barth, was shot, but "is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery".

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders wasted no time in expressing his regret and disgust that a follower of his campaign had committed such a cowardly attack. "Maybe this is the event that will begin to do that".
