She said Hodgkinson made preparations for leaving, selling nearly everything he owned from his businesses before the trip.

A list found on the body of James Hodgkinson, the suspect in Wednesday's shooting at an Alexandria, Va., baseball field, revealed the names of three Republican lawmakers, the Washington Examiner reported Friday.

Representatives Jeff Duncan (R-SC) and Ron DeSantis (R-FL) were leaving the baseball field when they were approached by a man, James Hodgkinson, who asked if it were Democrats or Republicans practicing on the field.

Schaumleffel never actually knew Hodgkinson said now he'd never forget the day he was out there shooting. U.S. Capitol Police and D.C. Metropolitan Police Department also declined to comment. The 2011 shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords led to an orgy of Republican-blaming, mostly based on the fact that Sarah Palin had released a map of 20 vulnerable Democratic districts with a set of crosshairs to mark each target.

"I've obviously noticed a very different tone, but I don't think it's helpful" to blame one side or the other, Cramer said.

Hodgkinson was injured in a shootout with police and later died of his injuries, according to officials. He always drank Budweiser from a can and drank alone, barely speaking to anyone, including the bartenders. Hodgkinson said he had a home inspection business back in IL but had been in Alexandria for a while and had been looking for temporary work. He was invested in liberal politics and volunteered for Bernie Sanders' campaign.

And it's up to him to decide how much to tell Rosenstein about the substance of the investigation itself. Trump has expressed increasing dissatisfaction with the Justice Department since Mueller's appointment.

On Tuesday, Hodgkinson broke his apparent silence at the garage.

It is worth asking whether the hysteria over Republican President Donald Trump and GOP lawmakers played a role in Hodgkinson's shooting spree.

While trying to drive away from that confrontation, the report said, Hodgkinson used a pocket knife to cut a seat belt.

WANG: She got a lot of questions from reporters. Moments later, over 50 shots from a high-powered rifle were fired.
