Hodgkinson said she only learned of the shooting and her husband's involvement when a reporter called to ask her about the events. Clyburn charged that Trump "is allowed to hide behind political correctness to say all kinds of things about people, and I'm a little bit sick and exhausted of people saying anything they want to say about anyone they want to say it about". "I had no idea this was going to happen and I don't know what to say about it", the wife of the Bernie Sanders supporter said during the emotional interview.
Sanders said, "Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms". "The Second Amendment right to bear arms is to ensure that we always have a republic", he said, answering a question on gun control.
After getting out of a black SUV that drove down Rolling Hills Lane from the Hodgkinson home, Sue Hodgkinson stood next to a federal agent in front of a gaggle of reporters. She was flanked by a local county deputy when standing in front of a plethora of microphones.
However, the truth was that, while Hodgkinson may have been jobless and living out of his gym bag when in Virginia, he had actually owned a home inspection business, which he dissolved before heading to D.C.
Sue Hodgkinson is the wife of James Hodgkinson. Before leaving IL sometime in March, James Hodgkinson is believed to have sold nearly everything he owned from his home inspection business. An aide to Rep. Roger Williams, R-Texas, was also shot, the congressman's office said.
"We now have no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful", the FBI's Washington, D.C., field office and other federal, state and local law enforcement partners said in a statement Thursday afternoon.
The couple had been married for about 30 years.
"While there were always be those who seek to divide, who choose insult over insight, tonight, on a baseball field in our nation's capital, the world will see America is better than that", Pence said.
Moreland said her friend often came over to her house to escape Hodgkinson who was angry much of the time.
Authorities said Wednesday there was not yet a clear motive for the shooting, as the FBI investigated Hodgkinson's associations and social media postings.
Those neighbors said Hodgkinson had been away from his home on what they thought was a long trip. "They don't deserve this, I don't deserve this, my daughters don't deserve all this".
