Possible Assassination List of GOP Lawmakers Found on Scalise Shooter's Body

Possible Assassination List of GOP Lawmakers Found on Scalise Shooter's Body

Doctors at MedStar Washington Hospital, where Rep. Scalise is being treated, discussed his condition on Friday saying that they believed he would be in the hospital for a considerable amount of time, possibly weeks.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was in "imminent risk of death" when he was flown to a trauma center Wednesday after being shot during an ambush of a GOP congressional baseball team practicing on a Virginia field.

Four men, including Scalise, a police officer, a congressional aide and a lobbyist, were shot and wounded when a man identified as James Hodgkinson, opened fire on the lawmakers as they practiced for an annual charity baseball game between Republicans and Democrats.

Doctors also said Scalise needed at several transfusions.

Congressman Cedric Richmond, who is pitching in Thursday night's game is expected to give an update on Scalise's condition at 3:30 p.m. The congressman underwent another surgery today, and the hospital said he was more responsive and speaking with family.

Scalise was sedated Friday, but the husband and father of two has been able to respond to his doctors and family.

The president said that because of the "tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring. our country will perhaps become closer, more unified".

On the surface, other superhero actors such as Chris Evans could claim to be similarly hard done (well, by Hollywood standards). As reported by The Daily Dot , Gal Gadot only earned $300,000 Dollars for her excellent performance in Wonder Woman .

The bullet entered Scalise's left hip and tore across his pelvis, cracking bones and injuring organs and blood vessels.

Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation".

A former congressman who formerly held the seat now held by Scalise says his condition is serious.

The shot fired at Scalise left perhaps hundreds of bullet fragments internally, many of which may never be removed because surgery might be more unsafe than leaving them in place, Sava said.

Although Scalise was able to talk on the ballfield, by the time he was transported by helicopter to the hospital, he was in shock. "I think that his risk of death right now is substantially lower than when he came in ... he was as critical as you can be when he came in". Sava said Scalise "clearly knows" his family is there and "appreciates" their presence.

Mika also remained hospitalized Saturday after undergoing an additional surgery.

"Most importantly, we are forever grateful for the heroism of Special Agents Crystal Griner and David Bailey, who saved the lives of everyone at the baseball field that morning, including Steve's", Scalise's wife, Jennifer, said in the statement.
