Shooter at Republican Baseball Practice a Bernie volunteer from Illinois. Wanted to ‘terminate the Republican Party’

Click here: The shooter James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois was a Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer and belonged to a number of anti-Republican groups, including one called “Terminate the Republican Party.” Bernie Sanders issued a statement after the shooting saying, “I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign, I am sickened by this despicable act. Let me be as clear as I can be. Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms; Real change can only come about through nonviolent action, and anything else runs against our most deeply held American values.”
