On June 14, 2017, Representative Steve Scalise (R, La.) was shot by a far left-wing activist, James Hodgkinson, at a practice session for the congressional baseball team in Virginia, and was taken to the hospital in critical condition. He survived and would start in the congressional baseball game a year later. The shooter, James Hodgkinson, was reportedly motivated by his political affiliations with the Democrats, and a number of disturbing revelations about his past have raised a number of other questions about his possible links to criminal organizations within the government.
People are questioning whether there is a deeper political connection than has been reported based on Scalise’s promise for new legislation to stop child predators and human traffickers just a few days prior (May 25th). It is also known that the shooter, James Hodgkinson, worked for Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, and was a follower of David Brock’s media matters, disturbing new reports have also revealed that two children suspiciously died in his care. The congressman has been taken to the same hospital that Seth Rich reportedly died at, he’s said to be in critical condition, and is currently undergoing surgery. Was this an attempt at another politically motivated murder by the deep state?
The FBI labeled the 2017 baseball field shooting that nearly killed GOP Rep. Steve Scalise a “suicide by cop” as revealed during an exchange with a GOP lawmaker in 2021. The FBI labels Trump supporters who walked through the Capitol on January 6 “domestic terrorists” but a leftist who shot up a baseball field full of Republicans is “suicide by cop.”1
A congressman who was on the baseball field during the 2017 shooting that nearly killed GOP Whip Steve Scalise says the FBI privately informed lawmakers it ruled the attack a “suicide by cop,” a designation he said downplayed the shooter’s apparently political motivation.
Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) revealed the previously undisclosed determination during a hearing of the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday, upbraiding FBI Director Christopher Wray and prompting several colleagues of both parties to pile on. He said FBI agents privately briefed the baseball team on Nov. 16, 2017 to deliver the controversial determination.
“Much to our shock that day, the FBI concluded that this was a case of the attacker seeking suicide by cop,” Wenstrup said. “Director, you want suicide by cop, you just pull a gun on a cop. It doesn’t take 136 rounds. It takes one bullet. Both the DHS and the (Office of the Director of National Intelligence) published products labeling this attack as a domestic violent extremism event, specifically targeting Republican members of Congress. The FBI did not.”
