Ryan and Pelosi back 'Team Scalise' at congressional baseball game

Ryan and Pelosi back 'Team Scalise' at congressional baseball game

She did add, "I really am nearly sad for myself that I have gone down this path with you because I don't think it's appropriate for us to have the fullest discussion of it. For them to be so sanctimonious is something that I really am nearly sad for myself".

Pelosi said at a news conference she believes the 2,200-member Capitol Police force needed a bigger budget.

"Steve Scalise was shot and badly wounded and is now in stable condition at the hospital along with two very fearless Capitol Police officers", Trump said in a White House address.

"It's an injury in the family", Pelosi said of the shooting. Richmond played baseball in college and kicked off his congressional career with a one-hitter in 2011 and has been the game's dominant player pretty much since then. 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. These were our brothers and sisters who ran into danger and saved countless lives.

I rise to join the distinguished speaker in paying tribute to the courageous men and women of the Capitol Police force, and also, in sadness, for the assault that was made on our colleagues and members of the staff. Mike Bishop, Jack Bergman, Chuck Fleischmann and Joe Barton were also at the field.

"This is a powder keg right now, so everyone in authority has to be very careful with the words the say", said Nina Turner, a former Democratic state senator from OH and a high-profile Sanders supporter.

A gunman fired 50 or more shots at Republican congressmen practicing for a baseball game Wednesday morning, injuring Scalise, a Hill staffer, and two Capitol police officers.

Vice President Mike Pence has visited the Washington hospital and "checked in" on a Louisiana congressman recovering from a gunshot wound.

The House cancelled all official business on the House floor Wednesday and Democrats and Republicans gathered for an all-member briefing. The assailant had nursed grievances against President Donald Trump and the GOP - and was shot by police and later died.

Democrats and Republicans from Wisconsin watched the news in horror. At a time of infamously high partisanship in Congress, the annual baseball game is a rare time in Washington's political culture of relaxed tensions and unified goal - usually.

A gunman identified as 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, IL opened fire on the practice session for Thursday's scheduled game.

Votes were canceled in the House on Wednesday, but on Thursday they were taking place. Along with Scalise, at least one congressional aide, a lobbyist and two police officers were also injured. He shot at Steve Scalise, our second baseman.
