Sanders 'sickened', man ID'd as shooter volunteered in Iowa for Sanders campaign

"Republicans are the Taliban of the United States of America", he posted in February.

Hodgkinson, 66, a former home inspector, left an ample trail, both online and in his uprooting from IL to Virginia. In 1994, JTH Construction became JTH Inspections, a home inspection and air quality testing service that he listed as closed in 2016. In January, he dissolved his IL home appraisal and inspection business, records show. Donald Trump Jr., the son of the president, retweeted Hill's comment - adding "This".

Hodgkinson was politically active on Facebook.

On its official Twitter account, the Alexandria Police Department assured the public that it had apprehended the suspect and nullified any potential threat to members of Congress and local residents.

Bernie Sanders speaks at an anti-'Trumpcare' rally in Washington, DC on May 4. He last shared a change.org petition on May 24 to stop a pipeline from Detroit through Ohio. St. Clair County Court documents and an accompanying police report describe a confrontation between Hodgkinson and a young couple at his home.

24-Story London Tower Erupts in Flames
Built in 1974, Grenfell Tower was recently refurbished at a cost of £8.6 million, with work completed in May previous year . One woman said her friend inside for three hours and was told by police to wait and put towels down to block the doors.

Sanders swiftly responded to the reports, saying he was "sickened" by what he called a "despicable act".

President Donald Trump made no mention of politics in a brief statement just before noon eastern time.

His favorite movie? The documentary "Inequality for All", featuring progressive economist Robert Reich. When he went outside, he saw Hodgkinson shooting a rifle into a cornfield.

Robert Becker, who oversaw Sanders' campaign in Iowa and other key states, said none of the campaign field organizers in Iowa or IL could remember a volunteer named James Hodgkinson.

Hodgkinson also appears to have written letters to the News-Democrat for several years.

The best photos from the Pittsburgh Penguins' Stanley Cup championship parade
For the second time in as many years, downtown Pittsburgh will be jam packed as they prepare to honor their heroes of the ice. On the blue line, Pittsburgh could lose Trevor Daley, who averaged more than 20 minutes per game this season.

Candice DeLong, a former FBI criminal profiler and host of the television show "Deadly Women" on Investigation Discovery, said Hodgkinson's gradual isolation indicates he didn't snap after a single incident, but as different points of stress in his life accumulated.

And sometime in March, investigators said, Hodgkinson relocated to Alexandria, Va. Records indicate he has not been involved in any legal cases since 2011. As we continue to gather information, Tracy and I would like to send our prayers to my friend and colleague, Steve Scalise, as well as members of the security detail and congressional staff who were injured.

He chose a Bernie Sanders" cover photo and a profile picture reading, "Democratic Socialism explained in 3 words: "We The People'" for one Facebook page, and a profile photo of Bernie Sanders' face edited into an Uncle Sam costume on the other.

Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) left practice early and said a man believed to be the shooter asked him what was going on.

Hodgkinson repeatedly blasted Republican lawmakers in letters to his local newspaper for favoring the "super rich". He had a valid Illinois Firearms Owner's Identification card at the time.
