Possible Assassination List of GOP Lawmakers Found on Scalise Shooter's Body

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of La. speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington. Scalise was shot Wednesday

On Thursday night Scalise was honored at the annual congressional baseball game at Nationals Stadium, where a record crowd showed up.

She said Republican vitriol and caricatures of her had resulted in "calls to my home constantly, threats in front of my family, really predicated on their comments and their paid ads".

"It's been much more hard than people even thought at the time", Trump told reporters at the White House on Thursday, adding he also visited the wounded Capitol Police officer at the hospital.

It is not clear how much damage the bullet did, but doctors say such wounds can be serious if they impact vital organs.

Scalise's Chief of Staff shared a message from the congressman's family at a Friday press conference.

Pelosi also notes that President Donald Trump occasionally used violent language on the campaign trail.
