The risk is lower than when Scalise was brought in to the hospital, Sava noted, adding that he more confident and optimistic about the congressman's condition. Trump sat by Scalise's bedside and met with his wife, as well as Griner and her wife. U.S. Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.), who visited Scalise in the hospital Thursday, said that on a recent foreign trip he and Scalise took, 90 percent of their conversations were about the game. "He's in some trouble".
Investigators said in a statement that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has searched the van, which was parked not far from the Alexandria, Virginia, baseball field where Wednesday's shooting took place.
Sava said Scalise "sustained a single rifle wound that entered into the area of the left hip". Most say they don't need extra security, while others say for certain events, they wouldn't mind the extra security.
Once he has recovered, Sava said, Scalise will require rehabilitation. Infection remains a considerable risk in the days and weeks during Scalise's extended hospital stay, Sava said.
A law enforcement official says the gunman who wounded a top Republican congressman and several other people during an early morning baseball practice legally purchased his rifle and handgun.
Hodgkinson was fatally shot during an exchange of gunfire with police during the rampage.
The shooter was killed by police officers whose work won praise from Trump in his remarks.
Authorities also were going over a mobile phone, computer and camera taken from Hodgkinson's white van, which was parked near the ballfield.
The practice was being held ahead of the annual Congressional Baseball Game, which raises money for charity.
The mood at the Capitol remained somber Thursday, as members learned more about Scalise's condition and signed giant "get well" posters for him and others injured.
Played nearly every year since 1909, this year's congressional contest began with a moving tribute to the victims of the shooting, as well as the Capitol Police officers who helped take out the gunman.
Scalise, of Louisiana, underwent surgery Wednesday night to fix a broken hip and another procedure to stem heavy bleeding.
"I'll miss the banter with him back and forth", Richmond said of the heckling they usually exchange from opposing dugouts. "He's always fighting, that's why this is right up his ally".
He focused on the character of those who are dealing with the aftermath of the attack. "How dare they", the minority leader said.
She said Republican vitriol and caricatures of her had resulted in "calls to my home constantly, threats in front of my family, really predicated on their comments and their paid ads".
Even with lawmakers' determination for baseball bipartisanship, they say competitiveness remains.
"I don't know if you can blame this on one wing or another wing. I think it's just a matter of having a lot of problems and having a lot of anger".
