The shooter in Alexandria had a list of names consisting of all the Representatives who make up the House Freedom Caucus.
The House Freedom Caucus consists of some of the best people in the House of Representatives—the ones who are most principled and side with the constitution. When James Hodgkinson opened fire on Republicans, he hadn’t simply snapped. He had a plan that he had thought out and written down.
The Daily Caller reports, “EXCLUSIVE: Assassination List Found On James Hodgkinson’s Body.”
James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on dozens of Republican congressmen and staffers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, had a list of Republican names in his pocket that was recovered by the FBI, The Daily Caller has learned.
The news that the shooter had a list of names suggests the shooting was not a random outburst, but instead appears to be a premeditated political assassination.
The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter’s pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the investigation. The list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, TheDC has confirmed. Fox News reported after this story that Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, Tennessee Rep. Scott DesJarlais and Virginia Rep. Morgan Griffith are also on the list. All six congressmen are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which contains the lower chamber’s most conservative members.
The FBI has contacted the congressmen to inform them of their inclusion on the list.
Anyone who hopes that things will calm down now is probably deluded. This has been building for years:
