The gunman who opened fire yesterday on Republican congressmen and staffers recently declared in a Facebook post that, “It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”
The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, posted a link to a Change.org petition in late-March that included, “Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It's Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”
The shooter’s Facebook page includes photos of Senator Bernie Sanders, whom he strongly supported during the presidential election.
