    After Carlos Bayon was arrested on a charge of menacing U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise in a voicemail message, authorities deemed the threat "credible" and described evidence seized at the suspect's upstate New York home as "very concerning." The U.S. attorney did not detail the evidence, but a new affidavit filed in federal court in Buffalo by the Capitol Police itemizes it. No guns were found in the search, yet special agent Lawrence Anyaso says investigators discovered: 150 rounds of 7.62-millimeter rifle ammunition 50 rounds of shotgun ammunition A 2004 receipt for an SKS assault rifle A 1987 receipt for a...

    A man was arrested Thursday for allegedly leaving threatening voicemails for two members of Congress, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.). Sixty-three-year-old Carlos Bayon, who resides in New York, is charged with making threats across state lines. Scalise, the No. 3 Republican in the House, was shot during the GOP's congressional baseball practice last year and sustained near-fatal injuries. “Whip Scalise is grateful to law enforcement for their actions. He will never forget how their heroism saved his life and those of his colleagues last year," Scalise spokeswoman Lauren Fine told The Hill in a statement. "As he has...

    PITTSBURGH -- Everyone wants to shake Steve Scalise's hand. A year ago, the Louisiana congressman was near second base at an early morning baseball practice when the sound of shots pierced the quiet of suburban DC. A bullet zigzagged through his left hip, slicing muscle tissue, crushing his femur and mangling his organs. Now, he is recognized by passersby as the man whose survival is nothing short of a miracle. As he walks down the hall of the Duquesne Club -- a handsome old-money institution where President Ulysses S. Grant was one of the first guests -- a man steps...

    Someone is going to get killed. We have gone beyond the severed presidential head held by the unfunny and untalented Kathy Griffin to mob action, including the physical harassment of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen who just days before was drummed out of a Mexican restaurant by left-wing activists protesting the separation of children from parents caught crossing the border illegally. Nielsen was also targeted by a leftist mob at her home: A cabal of protesters gathered outside Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s Virginia townhouse Friday morning, blasting audio of crying immigrant children and chanting “No justice, no sleep.” The...

    A liberal group is raising money to put up a billboard to “take out” Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), who survived being shot while practicing at a baseball field in Alexandria last June. The homepage of Mad Dog PAC’s website has a photo of the proposed billboard with a link asking site-goers for donations. The liberal group is the same organization behind a billboard with the message “IMPEACHMENT NOW” along the motorcade route to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

    Wednesday on Hugh Hewitt’s nationally syndicated radio show, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) warned Democrats would move to impeach President Donald Trump if they reassumed control of Congress after this year’s midterm elections. Hewitt asked Scalise about that possibility, calling it the “bottom line” of the 2018 campaign. “I think there’s no doubt they will, Hugh,” Scalise replied. “They’ve telegraphed a lot of that. Their base is so far radical to the left. Look, Nancy Pelosi yesterday, first of all, she said she’s running for speaker again, so you’ve got to just close your eyes and go back to...

    There's no denying Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise is a big LSU fan. If you doubt that, just check out the tricked-out Tigers scooter the House Whip uses after being injured in June's shooting at a Republican baseball team practice. Scalise's LSU allegiance didn't prevent University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban from asking him to be his guest at Saturday night's game between the Tide and the Tigers, with an invite hand-delivered by another Alabama Congressman. Rep. Gary Palmer, among the attendees at the baseball practice when the shooting broke out, hand-delivered the invitation from Coach Saban to Rep. Scalise,...

Scalise will address the Family Research Council’s annual Values Voter Summit on Oct. 13 in Washington, D.C. The FRC is an anti-abortion, anti-gay conservative group and lobbying organization. FRC’s President Tony Perkins wrote a memo about the upcoming appearance, referencing the June shooting at a Virginia baseball field where Scalise and other Republicans were practicing for an upcoming charity game. The congressman was shot in the hip. “There were times...

    House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said it's "overzealous" to call for a purge on GOP donors who haven't supported the administration's agenda. He was responding to a recent remark from Vice President Pence's chief of staff Nick Ayers. “Maybe he got a little overzealous," Scalise said on NBC News' "Meet the Press with Chuck Todd" in an interview set to air on Sunday. Scalise's comments come after Ayers said wealthy Republican donors should "purge" members of Congress who have not been supportive of President Trump's agenda.

    House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., who was shot at Republican baseball practice during the summer in Alexandria, Va., said that his experience has only solidified his views concerning gun control."Inevitably questions about the Second Amendment are raised by what happened in Las Vegas," Fox News' Martha MacCallum said in an interview Tuesday, referring to the mass shooting there Sunday night. "It happens almost immediately. Have you, your experience of your own and what you saw in Las Vegas, has it changed how you feel about any of that?"

    NBC News justice correspondent Pete Williams said Monday that the motivations behind the June shooting at a Republican congressional baseball practice are still unknown, and will never be known, despite widespread agreement that the targeting of the attack was political. Williams was discussing Sunday's shooting in Las Vegas, and how the gunman's motivation for the attack may never be completely known. Williams then tried to tie the Las Vegas shooting investigation to the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise (R., La.). "It would not be unheard of if at the end of all this it remains a puzzle," Williams said. "For...

    When he was shot in June, there was a lot of talk from members of Congress of all stripes calling for the kind of unity we witnessed Thursday. So after his emotional welcome back we followed Congressman Scalise to his office, and asked him if the appearance of unity could result in something more lasting.
