Apparently shooter was a Sanders supporter according to CNN.

Close enough.

Jill Stein voter, I heard.  Half a dozen of one, six of the other.

Still comes down to left wing loon with a gun either way.

Choice of target is a little odd, never even heard of the guy shot until now. Surely there's a heap of better targets if you're going to pull shit like this?

He's an asshole, no qualms about saying that.

But he's not in the McConnell/Ryan/Sessions league of assholes.

Exactly, it's just another asshole in a sea of them. Unless there's some kind of personal link between them it just strikes me as a very odd target.

Off his meds wouldn't be a surprise result really. The shooter is apparently dead so we'll get his life in gory detail soon enough.

It's also another notch on the "people going after political figures" stick.

He is the House Majority Whip, and has backed Trump 100% on everything he has done, and has a history of courting white supremacist groups.

I can see why someone local would find him a tempting target.  He's basically a mini-Trump.

In other news, since Comey was sacked, Trump himself has been under investigation for obstruction of justice.

I recall reading somewhere that he asked a passerby in the  parking lot prior to the shooting if it was Republicans or Democrats practicing.

It may just be that none of those hit were intended because of their person, just their party. The good news, for them, is that he wasn't a great shot.

... that's just about the only good news. I do find it fucked that when Gifford and company were gunned down they didn't stop the wheels of government for a whole day as happened today. Not much else to say.

Pence is hiring outside legal help

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/pence-hires-outside-counsel-to-deal-with-russia-probe-inquiries/2017/06/15/c40ef55c-51f5-11e7-a973-3dae94ed3eb7_story.html?tid=ss_fb&utm_term=.23967684a357

Screams innocent to me.

Could be he doesn't believe Trump's lawyer wont throw him under a bus.  I'd worry about that, in his position.  Then again, I don't believe Pence is anywhere as innocent as he's making out either...

Idiots attorney has also hired a lawyer.

Nothing screams innocent like your lawyer lawyering up.

President Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, has hired his own attorney as the special counsel investigation into Russian election interference progresses, NBC News reported Friday.

Cohen has hired Washington, D.C., attorney Stephen M. Ryan, according to NBC's Katy Tur.

A source told Tur that Cohen will testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Sept. 5, adding that the testimony was delayed due to "scheduling and logistics."
