Nancy Pelosi Suggests Boosting Congressional Security After Alexandria Shooting

Pelosi: I Pray For Trump and His Family's Safety

Trump said Wednesday morning that the gunman who shot Rep. Steve Scalise, of Louisiana, had died.

Only members of House leadership have Capitol Police security details.

Capitol Hill, Wednesday, May 17, 2017 in Washington.

Pelosi also claimed that the decline of political rhetoric in the US began in the 1990s, with the Republican-led impeachment of President Bill Clinton for perjury after he lied during a legal deposition in a sexual harassment lawsuit. Trump said Scalise "was badly wounded and is now in stable condition".

At least six people including Scalise, the third ranking member of House Republican leadership as the majority whip, were hospitalized.

The congressional baseball match pits Republicans against Democrats.

After a briefing with the U.S. Capitol Sergeant of Arms and Congressional leaders, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif, stopped to speak with reporters. As he walked to his auto, a man asked DeSantis if it was Republicans or Democrats practicing.

North Korea expecting visit from former NBAer Dennis Rodman
Rodman has traveled to North Korea before, though he has been criticized for comments he made on previous trips. Speaking in 2014 , he said: "It's about trying to bridge a gap to a country that people say is so bad".

Speaker Paul Ryan delivered a message of solidarity to House members, telling them to "show the world that we are one House, the People's House, united in our humanity".

"Without the Capitol Hill police it would have been a massacre", Paul said, calling the scene "sort of a killing field". He was shot in the hip in the Wednesday morning incident and the bullet fractured bones and injured internal organs, causing severe bleeding. Many Democrats and Republicans refrained from politicizing the attack or casting it as a referendum on the Second Amendment. Coming together after such an attack neuters it of meaning. First, this: "You're going to hear me say something I've never said before".

Hudson said that he was touched by a post in an Indivisible Facebook group - a group that aligns itself with Democrats - that celebrated that he was safe. "We are all horrified by this awful attack on our friends and on our colleagues and those who serve and protect this capital. Of all the things Congress does, this is one of the most benign, positive activities".

Pennsylvania congressmen Brian Fitzpatrick, R-8, Middletown, Brendan Boyle, D-13, Northeast Philadelphia and Pat Meehan, R-7, Springfield, and their staff were not present at the practice. "I don't think you're human if that doesn't shake you". That was demonstrated again this morning.

Rep. Ralph Abraham, R-La., described Scalise as a great leader who is the go-to person for the state's congressional delegation. Jeff Flake told CNN. He had found an entry wound for the bullet, but couldn't find the exit wound, and was concerned about internal injuries. And he says Scalise is "in some trouble".

Pelosi called Republican comments suggesting that hateul liberal rhetoric incites violence "beneath the dignity of the job that they hold". "Our security detail was able to incapacitate him at that point".

"We were doing batting practice", said Sen. "It was chaotic and afterwards it was very sad because there were so many people injured".
