'Scalise took a bullet for all of us'

Scalise is still in critical condition at Medstar Washington Hospital Center, but an update Thursday indicated that his condition had improved after a second surgery. Sava said he was able to respond to family members while still under sedation, but that Scalise will have to remain in the hospital for "a considerable period of time", including for further operations and rehabilitation.
The Louisiana Republican was shot in the hip Wednesday morning in the baseball practice shooting by an IL man with grudges against President Donald Trump and the GOP.
"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 security detail returned fire, and Hodgkinson was later shot by police and died thereafter.
Scalise, the third ranking member of House Republican leadership, was among six people who were injured after a gunman opened fire Wednesday in Alexandria, Virginia, during a Republicans' early-morning practice ahead of a charity baseball game.
The annual charity game, a staple in Washington, D.C., since 1909, pits GOP and Democratic lawmakers against each other in a baseball showdown. Republicans and Democrats play one another in annual event, which raises funds for charity.
The surgeon on Friday said he was "a lot more confident and optimistic" about Scalise's recovery than he was two days ago.
Deputy AG wouldn't fire Mueller if unlawful
Also, Ruddy said , Mueller was considered for Federal Bureau of Investigation director before he was appointed special counsel. Ruddy issued a terse response directed at Spicer, but also admitted he didn't speak to Trump personally about this.
Although Scalise was able to talk on the ballfield, by the time he was transported by helicopter to the hospital, he was in shock.
Scalise, 51, suffered a rifle wound in his left hip that shattered bones, tore organs and caused severe bleeding.
Doctors "fully expect him to walk", Sava said, "and hopefully run".
"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", President Trump said in a video address to the crowd. Hodgkinson had posted comments critical of President Donald Trump on his social-media accounts and engaged in a profane tirade about Trump in a chance conversation with an auto mechanic the day before the attack in Alexandria, where Hodgkinson had been living in his van since about March. 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). "We're united, not as Republicans and Democrats, but as United States representatives". Two officers were shot, as were congressional aide Zach Barth and lobbyist Matt Mika. On Friday, Bailey was spotted back in the Capitol building, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers. He arrived "in critical condition with an imminent risk of death", Sava said, adding that now, "we are encouraged by improvement in his condition".
