Scalise still in critical condition

Scalise, 51, sustained injuries to internal organs, broken bones and severe bleeding after being shot in his left hip early on Wednesday at a baseball field in a suburb of Washington.

Dr. Jack Sava, trauma director at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, says several operations have controlled the bleeding and Scalise's vital signs have stabilized.

Republicans and Democrats have swapped political insults for friendly rivalry at their annual congressional baseball game in honour of House of Representatives politician Steve Scalise, critically injured in a shooting rampage.

But lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and remains in critical condition, as does Scalise.

He said that "there are hundreds of fragments" of the bullet still in Scalise's body, but that there is more risk associated with finding them than there is benefit of taking them out of him.

The new winglets measure approximately 4.7 metres in height (an uplet of 3.5 metres, and a downlet of 1.2 metres). The new square staircase design will also be incorporated in the aft-galley, replacing the current spiral stairs.

"Most importantly, we are forever grateful for the heroism of Special Agents Crystal Griner and David Bailey, who saved the lives of everyone at the baseball field that morning, including Steve's", Scalise's wife, Jennifer, said in the statement.

"By playing tonight we are showing the world that we will not be intimidated by threats, acts of violence or assaults on our democracy", said US President Donald Trump, appearing on the park's giant screen but not attending.

The shooter was an IL man, James Hodgkinson, who had lashed out against President Donald Trump and Republicans over social media.

Trump, in a video message played at the game, said the event had "a much deeper level of meaning" because of the shooting.

The crowd started clapping and chanting United States of America after the first pitch was thrown by injured Capitol Police Officer David Bailey, one of the two officers on the congressman's security detail who've been credited with saving his life and potentially many others.

Trump, after visiting the Louisiana Republican at the hospital, on Wednesday said Scalise was "in very tough shape - but he is a real fighter".

The president said that because of the "tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring. our country will perhaps become closer, more unified".

Trump visited the Louisiana congressman at the hospital Wednesday night, and Vice President Mike Pence paid a visit Thursday morning. His social media contained anti-Trump and anti-Republican posts. Bailey hobbled out to the pitcher's mound Thursday to a standing ovation to throw the opening pitch of the Congressional baseball game.

Although the weather in Washington looks headed toward a near-flawless summer night, an obvious and immovable shadow is being cast over Thursday night's Congressional Baseball Game - a tradition that began more than a century ago.

He added that Scalise would be in the hospital "for some time" and would need "a period of healing and rehabilitation" after being discharged.

Mueller investigating President Trump for obstruction of justice
But soon after the abrupt termination, Trump told NBC News that he had been going to fire Comey regardless of any recommendations. The special counsel assigned by the DOJ to investigate the White House's involvement with Russian Federation is growing broader.

Scalise "is under heavy sedation, and he's been in surgery, I think, all of the three times I've been there", Richmond said.
