Wife: Man who shot congressman wanted to work on tax policy

Jack McClenahan, a retired Belleville business owner, said he had several unpleasant run-ins with Hodgkinson over the years while Hodgkinson protested a favored Democratic political cause outside the local post office. A government official says the suspect in the Virgini.

St. Clair Chief Deputy Sheriff Richard Wagner told DailyMail.com that she was in tears ' and her life had been turned upside down.

"The friend said Hodgkinson sold tools to get enough money for the trip", according to Kaiser.

The list, recovered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, was found in James T. Hodgkinson's pocket, according to The Daily Caller.

Rep. Steve Scalise was shot when a gunman opened fire at a GOP baseball practice in Alexandria, VA.

"What was he coming home for?" the reporter asked. The Trumps talked to doctors and sat at Scalise's bedside to visit with his family, including his wife Jennifer, the White House said. "There was so much anger in it".

Mr Scalise, the House Majority Whip, remains in a critical condition in hospital. It was written on notepad paper and had the names of at least three Republican congressmen on it, including representative Jeff Duncan, who spoke with Hodgkinson before the attack. Still unanswered is why led Hodgkinson to yesterday's attack.

As a home inspector, Hodgkinson got attention for helping hurricane victims in Florida in 2004. His Facebook page, which has now been taken down, was filled with rants about his disdain for conservatives and President Trump, calling him a traitor.

"He was in the outfield", Williams said about Barth during a news conference on Wednesday.

ABC News reported that Hodkinson has had run-ins with law enforcement in the past including cases where he discharged shots on his property and a domestic battery case in 2006.

A former mayor of Alexandria, William Euille, told CNN that he saw Hodgkinson around the YMCA, and described him as a "loner". "I've been here for 10 years and this is kind of the major news". Her daughter and a 2-year-old grandchild had moved in with the Hodgkinsons before that, she said, and her husband may have left because he wanted "a break from it".

"I just don't know what to tell you people", she said. "I can't wrap my head around it, OK?"

At the YMCA, Hodgkinson was nondescript: he always wore black trousers and golf shirts, sometimes beige, sometimes gray, sometimes black. "He was just a very calm, rational person, I thought", he said. Hodgkinson, 66, was killed by return fire. He always drank Budweiser from a can and drank alone, barely speaking to anyone, including the bartenders.

She said she didn't necessarily consider his departure odd.

On Tuesday, Hodgkinson broke his apparent silence at the garage. "The guy from Belleville was shooting people", Kaiser said.
