Baseball Shooter Carries Assassination List
Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on dozens of Republican congressman at an early morning baseball practice in Alexandria, VA, last Wednesday, was reported to have an “assassination list” in his pocket that was recovered by the FBI.
The list of names in his pocket changes the idea that the shooter was randomly shooting Republicans, which means the incident was a premeditated action of political assassination.
The list was hand-written on notebook paper and shoved in the man’s pocket, according to sources. The list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan, and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks.
Duncan And Brooks Both At Practice
The Daily Caller reports:
“None of the three offices would offer comments on the record when asked about the names on the list. Brooks and Franks’ office further directed all inquiries to the Capitol police, who declined to comment.”
“The FBI’s Washington field office, which is handling the investigation, also provided no comment, citing the ongoing investigation. All three representatives are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which contains the lower chamber’s most conservative members. Both Duncan and Brooks attended Wednesday’s baseball practice.”
FBI Contacted Congressman In Regards To List
World Net Daily reports:
“Neither Brooks, Duncan or Franks would comment on the note Friday. The FBI has contacted at least one of the three congressmen to inform them of their inclusion on the list. WND was the first news agency to identify all 16 GOP members of Congress present at the field Wednesday morning – 14 House members along with two senators, Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Jeff Flake of Arizona.”
Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., had left the field early and actually crossed paths with the shooter in the parking lot. Hodgkinson asked them if the players on the field were Republicans or Democrats. Duncan told him “Republicans,” and Hodgkinson promptly got his guns and returned to the field shooting.”
