Setback: Rep. Steve Scalise Back in ICU Suffering from Serious Infection

Political assassination is never a fun topic, even if the left wants to promote more of it, especially with Donald Trump in the crosshairs.

I assume that the shooter in this assassination attempt used fragmenting bullets to do maximum damage.

Fox News

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., was readmitted to the Intensive Care Unit on Wednesday for an infection related to injuries he suffered in a June shooting incident.

Doctors at the hospital where House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., has been recovering from a gunshot wound downgraded his condition from “fair” to “serious” Wednesday after he contracted an infection.

In a statement, MedStar Washington Hospital Center said Scalise had been re-admitted to the intensive care unit. The hospital added that it would provide another update Thursday.

Scalise and four others were hurt when a gunman opened fire on a GOP baseball practice in Virginia on June 14. The gunman, identified as James T. Hodgkinson, was fatally shot by Capitol police.


The congressman was struck in the hip and the bullet tore into blood vessels, bones and internal organs. He has undergone several surgeries.

Sources told Fox News that doctors had anticipated that Scalise would suffer an infection related to the shooting. Sources close to the congressman indicated that they had been told from the start that the Louisianan’s recovery would have ups and downs.

  1. Hope returning him to ICU is a precautionary measure and not due to drug resistant bacteria and/or the dreaded C-diff. He should have stayed in ICU in isolation from the start, but even under those circumstances I’ve seen careless hospital staff.

  2. I’ve heard this shooting is connected to the pedogate investigation, he was pushing the bill on child trafficking just prior to being shot. I’d be looking at the staff surrounding him at the hospital for sabotage.

  3. Wow. Sab, I know 3 people in my state who went into the hospital for a hip replacement surgery and developed the MRSA virus. All 3 of them just about died. One was sent to hospice care but survived.

    I’ve told my husband unless I’m on death’s door do not take me to a ER or hospital OR be there with me the entire time and I him. I don’t trust these medical personnel.

    I wonder how much dead peasant life insurance this man has that someone will profit off of.

  4. He was injured a lot worse than they are letting on. He got hit in a bad place on the body. Lots of blood vessels and bone marrow which can spread infection easily.
