WASHINGTON — Rep. Scott DesJarlais' office confirmed Monday the Tennessee Republican's name was on a list that authorities found with the gunman who shot five people last week at a Republican congressional baseball practice.
Capitol police notified the congressman's office 24-48 hours after the shooting that the South Pittsburg Republican's name was on the shooter's handwritten list, DesJarlais spokesman Brendan Thomas said.
The names of five other congressmen — all members of the House Freedom Caucus — also were on the list, according to news reports. Some reports have characterized the list as an "assassination list."
