Hospital: Scalise Upgraded To Fair Condition

U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks' name was on a list of assassination targets found on the body of James T. Hodgkinson - the suspect killed after wounding five people at a Republican congressional baseball practice Wednesday.

Speaking at a manufacturing conference in D.C., Ryan said he had just seen Scalise last Friday. He has undergone several surgeries and remains hospitalized.

O'Connor said Bost's office has turned over all of their communications from Hodgkinson to U.S. Capitol Police. Franks added that "it's clear that (the shooting) was premeditated", but he declined to confirm the existence of a possible list, citing the ongoing investigation.

The names on the list reportedly include Reps. Brooks and Franks' office further directed all inquiries to the Capitol police, who declined to comment.

CBN News contacted the offices of the acongressmen; however, staff say they can not make any further comments because it's an ongoing investigation.

France's Macron to reshuffle government after parliament win
The same popular discontent with traditional politicians that swept Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency is behind his success. The newly elected French National Assembly will be the most diverse ever, with younger and more ethnically diverse MPs.

All three members of the House whose names were reported by The Daily Caller are members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus. Both Duncan and Brooks attended Wednesday's baseball practice.

The shooter who injured Scalise was identified last week as 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, who died of injuries received during a shootout with police on the scene.

The message from congressman Steve Scalise of Louisiana on Sunday says: "Steve's greatest joy is being a father to Madison and Harrison, and a husband to Jennifer".

Scalise had been upgraded to serious condition last Saturday, four days after he was shot in the hip by a gunman in Alexandria, Virginia.
