(Republican Party News) – The Federal Bureau of Investigation has quietly informed members of Congress that it has officially labeled the 2017 shooting that almost resulted in the death of GOP Whip Steve Scalise as a “suicide by cop,” which is a designation that attempts to downplay the fact that there was a radical left-wing agenda as its real motive.
According to Infowars, Rep. Brad Wenstrup of Ohio revealed previously undisclosed information while delivering a scathing criticism of FBI Director Christopher Wray during a hearing of the House Intelligence Committee held last Thursday.
“Much to our shock that day, the FBI concluded that this was a case of the attacker seeking suicide by cop,” Wenstrup stated.
“Director, you want suicide by cop, you just pull a gun on a cop. It doesn’t take 136 rounds. It takes one bullet. Both the DHS and the (Office of the Director of National Intelligence) published products labeling this attack as a domestic violent extremism event, specifically targeting Republican members of Congress. The FBI did not,” he continued.
Instead of responding directly about the absurd designation from the FBI, Wray tried to pass the buck by saying he wasn’t in charge of the agency at the time.
Wenstrup has also sent a letter to Wray that sums up his concerns with this particular designation.
“This conclusion defies logic and contradicts the publicly known facts about the perpetrator and the attack,” Wenstrup wrote. “The shooter had an extensive social media record highlighting his hatred of President Trump and Republicans. He had a list of names – including Republican Members of Congress – in his possession. Before carrying out his attack, he asked if the Members of the baseball field were Republicans or Democrats,” the letter reads.
“Furthermore, the shooter’s operation movements during the attack demonstrate his murderous intent. He was heavily armed, sought cover during the shooting, well over 100 rounds were fired, and the attacker could not have known that then-Majority Whip Steve Scalise’s security detail was present given that they were in undercover vehicle and in plain clothes. All these facts are inconsistent with a designation of ‘suicide by cop,’” Wenstrup said.
“The FBI never publicly disclosed its final conclusions about the June 14, 2017, shooting. In an interim update just a week later,investigators said the gunman had made numerous social media posts supporting left-wing causes and backing candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), but the bureau also noted that it found no evidence of threats to GOP lawmakers or the baseball teamon the gunman’s devices. Wenstrup’s comments are the first public references that the FBI concluded the shooting was a ‘suicide by cop,'” Politico reported.
Scalise, who almost died during the attack, responded to the news by saying, “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.'”

This was NOT “suicide by cop.”

Jack Posobiec believes they made this designation because they did not want to include someone who carried out a left-wing attack to be part of their terrorism statistics.
The FBI labelled the Congressional mass shooting as 'suicide by cop' so it wouldn't count in their domestic terrorism statistics

The terrifying truth is the FBI has gone from a respectable law enforcement organization to a completely partisan, left-wing agency that has decided to oppose anyone who isn’t on board with the progressive agenda. It’s tragic to see this happening right before our eyes.
It really does seem as if there isn’t a single government agency that can be trusted with anything.
