A Michigan Republican who witnessed a mass shooting that wounded GOP whip Steve Scalise felt like he and fellow lawmakers were being hunted.

Rep. Mike Bishop (R-MI) was practicing Wednesday morning with other GOP representatives for a charity baseball game against Democratic lawmakers when a gunman opened fire, wounding Scalise and four others, reported MLive.

“You could hear the ping, ping, ping coming off the backstop,” Bishop told Detroit’s WJR-AM. “It was rather unnerving, to say the least.”

Bishop believes the shooter had developed a plan to open fire on lawmakers at the baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia.

“I’m convinced he was hunting us because he was perfectly placed to take shots,” Bishop said. “He came out the one exit that was there.”

Bishop declined to speculate on a possible political motivation, but he said the attack seemed calculated.

“The person who was shooting looked awfully calm and awfully prepared,” Bishop told the radio station. “The world has changed for me, I don’t know what to expect.”

"That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

Trump can’t fire Mulvaney because nobody else wants to be his chief of staff: report

Published

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
