Doctors: Scalise remains critical, but 'excellent recovery' possible

Share

Scalise "continues to show signs of improvement", MedStar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement Saturday evening.

Duncan found that memory hard to shake Thursday night as he stood in for Scalise at second base.

On Thursday, the hospital reiterated that Scalise will need more operations and will be in the hospital "for some time".

Within hours, the tragic shooting on a baseball practice field near Washington that left the shooter dead and a congressman and others wounded seemed to bring some foes in Congress together. Scalise was reported to have been tended to by Rep. Brad Wenstrup of OH, a US Army Reserve doctor who served in Iraq, before his treatment at the hospital.

Vice President Mike Pence earlier on Thursday said he visited the hospital where Scalise was being treated.

Scalise's security detail and other police officers shot and killed the assailant, James Hodgkinson of IL, who had lashed out against President Donald Trump and other Republicans over social media.

Four others were also shot, and suspect James T. Hodgkinson was killed by police.

Hodgkinson's apparent Facebook page included strong criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration.

"I know that he would want the game to be played", said Richmond.

Sava said Friday that there are hundreds of bullet fragments in Scalise's body, but "we have no intention to try and remove all the bullet fragments at this point".

Trump again acknowledges he's under investigation
The Post reported on Wednesday that Mueller was investigating Trump to prove whether the president attempted to obstruct justice. Trump fired Comey in May, just as the FBI was investigating ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

RESULTS: Virginia June 13 Gubernatorial Primary
Northam, a low-key pediatric neurologist, won running as a pragmatist with state's Democratic establishment's firm support. One of the most common critiques Gillespie has received has been his unwillingness to run on a Trump-friendly platform.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise remains critical but improving after the Virginia baseball field ambush.

Some Republican lawmakers blamed the shooting on vitriolic political rhetoric, particularly rising from the left in the era of Trump.

Once a relatively cosy affair, played at a minor league ballpark in Maryland, the game has gone big time in recent years and has been played at Nationals Park, just a few streets from the Capitol.

The 66-year-old suspect from Belleville, Illinois, was a volunteer for Senator Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign but whether he was politically motivated is still unclear, investigators said.

Mika, a MI native, was one of five people shot when a gunman opened fire Wednesday as the Republican team practiced in Alexandria, Virginia.

One of the Capitol Police officers injured in Wednesday's shooting has thrown out the first pitch at the congressional baseball game - to thunderous applause.

Lawmakers noted their good fortune in having armed protectors on hand - "Thank God", they exclaimed over and over - and said otherwise the shooter would have been able to take a huge deadly toll. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana was shot along with three other people.

The crowd was a mix of Democrats and Republicans.

"They win if we give in".

"In Washington we have our disagreements, but we all agree that we are here to serve this nation we love and the people who call it home", Trump said. A congressional staffer, Zach Barth, was shot in the leg; he was released from the hospital Wednesday afternoon, the Post reports. Democrats have won seven of the last eight games, bringing the overall series to an even 39-39-1 (the teams played multiple times in some years).
