Congressman Rep. Brad Wenstrup, a former victim of the 2017 congressional baseball shooting which left 5 people wounded and was carried out by an unhinged left-wing gunman, is now demanding. a new investigation after the shooting was reclassified by the FBI to ‘suicide by cop.’

As Fox News reports:


One of the Republican congressmen who survived an attempted mass shooting at a Virginia baseball field in 2017 is demanding the FBI reassess the attack after he revealed during a hearing last week that the bureau had designated the incident a “suicide by cop.”

“This conclusion defies logic and contradicts the publicly known facts about the perpetrator and the attack,” Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, wrote in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray. “The shooter had an extensive social media record highlighting his hatred of President Trump and Republicans.”

The gunman, James Hodgkinson, fired well over 100 rounds at the congressmen, their aides and others present on the ballfield.

He had asked whether the ballplayers were Democrats or Republicans before opening fire and was carrying a list of GOP lawmakers and their physical descriptions. The GOP team was there practicing for an annual charity baseball game in which the two parties had squared off annually since 1909.

Rep. Steve Scalise who was also a victim of the attack blasted the FBI’s, seemingly inexplicable decision, stating: “I was shot by a deranged leftist who came to the baseball field with a list of congressional Republicans to kill…This was not ‘suicide by cop.’ End of story.”

A spokesperson for the FBI declined to comment other than to acknowledge that they had received Wenstrup’s complaint.

Yes, and they can no longer be trusted to function as a Law Enforcement arm of the People, they are populated by Left Wing indoctrinated robots.

It was obvious to all, that this was a hate crime, even if it didn’t go along with the leftist ideals of one.

Suicide by cop? Is the FBI continuing to disgrace itself on purpose? Politically speaking, perhaps FBI has its own death wish.
