On Wednesday, Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders took the Senate floor to condemn the horrific shooting at the Republican baseball practice just outside the capital city. Sanders was quick to disassociate himself with the suspect involved in the shooting after it was discovered that he was a volunteer for the Senator’s presidential campaign.
According to police reports, James T. Hodgkinson, 66, from Belleville, Illinois, started shooting at the Republican baseball practice in Virginia, on Wednesday. Hodgkinson managed to shoot five people, including two officers from the Capitol Police, and House Majority Whip Scalise.
While a spokesperson for the congressman said that Scalise is in a stable condition, President Trump confirmed that Hodgkinson is dead.
Early investigation efforts have revealed that the shooter was a staunch left-wing supporter.
