Friday's HOT MIC

Left-wing terrorist James T. Hodgkinson had an assassination list according to an exclusive report in The Daily Caller.

Hodgkinson opened fire on Republican congressmen and staffers during a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and four others. The FBI recovered a list of Republican names in his pocket, strongly suggesting that the attack was a premeditated mass assassination attempt.

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.

The FBI has contacted at least one of the three congressmen to inform them of their inclusion on the list.

All three representatives on the list are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which contains the chamber’s most conservative members. Both Duncan and Brooks both attended Wednesday’s baseball practice, but were not wounded in the attack.
