Steve Scalise assimilated by lawmakers who helped save his life

On ‘The Story,’ Martha MacCallum sits down with GOP lawmakers who were pounded by shooter.

This is a rush twin from “The Story,” Oct 4, 2017. This duplicate competence not be in a final form and competence be updated.

MARTHA MACCALLUM, “THE STORY” HOST: Breaking tonight, we have code new sum about a potentially unarmed favourite and a marathon inquire today. I’m Martha MacCallum, and that is where a story kicks off tonight as distant as Las Vegas is concerned. He was a initial male to locate a shooter’s room. He was a confidence ensure and he competence have saved many people’s lives. His story, opening for we in usually a minute. And Marilou Danley — substantially never approaching to see her name flashed opposite a news all over this republic — she has usually wrapped adult six-plus hours of heated doubt by sovereign and state agents who are desperately seeking a motivate in this America’s deadliest shooting. They wish to find out what she knows, of course, about her now passed beloved and his disfigured final days. Here’s what her profession usually put out to us moments ago. Take a look.


MATTHEW LOMBARDO, ATTORNEY FOR MARILOU DANLEY: we am ravaged by a deaths and injuries that occurred. It never occurred to me in any proceed whatsoever that he was formulation violence.


MACCALLUM: That is partial of her statement. Today, as we saw, a trainer and a initial lady went to Las Vegas to see for themselves a theatre of a destruction and to praise a heroes. Men and women like these who altered brazen while others ran for safety.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Go that way! Go that way! Go that way!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They’re sharpened right during us, guys. Everybody, stay down. Stay down!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Where is it at?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It’s out of a window.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: North of a Mandalay Bay out of a window.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Hey, get down! Get down! Go that way. Get out of here. There are gunshots opening from over there. Go that way.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Go back! Go back!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Get back! Get back! we know we wanted yet there are mixed people shot adult there. Get in there.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Get in there! Get in there!


MACCALLUM: Just unimaginable bravery. In his remarks today, a trainer singled out a military and a initial responders. Listen to this.


DONALD TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: We are sanctified to be surrounded by heroes. As one watcher recounted this week, while everybody else was crouching, military officers were station adult as targets. Words can't news a aplomb that a whole universe witnessed on Sunday night. Americans defied genocide and loathing with adore and with courage.


MACCALLUM: So, a trainer sought currently to console a lamentation and to enthuse a wounded, and to lift a spirits of this nation.


TRUMP: The mass murder that took place on Sunday night fills America’s heart with grief. America is truly a republic in mourning. The instance of those whose final act was to scapegoat themselves for those they desired should enthuse all of us to uncover some-more adore any day for a people that beauty a lives. We will all have to fight with a fear of what has unfolded this week. But we will onslaught by it together, and we will overcome together as Americans.


MACCALLUM: Moving disproportion currently in Las Vegas. Trace Gallagher has been there all week covering this formidable story for us. And he joins us tonight as we get some late violation sum on what happened. Hi, Trace.

TRACE GALLAGHER, FOX NEWS CHANNEL CORRESPONDENT: Hi, Martha. we wish to reason to a violation news opening out of Las Angeles, Marylou Danley’s profession opening out and addressing a media. It comes after she spent some-more than 5 and a half hours, roughly 6 hours assembly with a FBI in their Los Angeles offices today. We have no suspicion what a concentration of questions was yet a profession came out and he pronounced that Marilou Danley had no suspicion about a shooting, that her heart goes out to a victims. And we wish we to listen to what a profession that she pronounced about her beloved Stephen Paddock, watch.


LOMBARDO: we knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring, still man. we desired him and hoped for a still destiny together with him. He never pronounced anything to me or took any transformation that we was wakeful of that we accepted in any proceed to be a warning that something terrible like this was going to going to happen.


GALLAGHER: And we have usually schooled that Stephen Paddock indeed requested a accurate two-room apartment during a Mandalay Bay where he pennyless open dual windows and from opposite positions, dismissed down on a unison crowd. And there were 3 cameras that lerned on a corridor so that Stephen Paddock could see when a military were shutting in. As we mentioned earlier, Martha, a initial chairman to tighten in was a confidence ensure for a Mandalay Bay named Jesus Campos. Fox News has schooled that he pronounced a stairwell was indeed blocked; he had to use a elevators.
And when he got to a room, he knew a gunman was firing. He dismissed on him; strike him once in a leg.

It is misleading if that confidence ensure was armed during a time, yet it’s also misleading if that competence have been a accurate impulse where Stephen Paddock killed himself given a military officers arrived about 10 mins after a sharpened all began, and when they arrived, they pronounced a sharpened unexpected stopped. After a confidence ensure got there, a SWAT organisation arrived, and they waited one hour to go in that room given during that indicate it was no longer an active shooter situation, it was a standoff. They waited an hour, they went inside a room, and that’s when they found 64- year-old, Stephen Paddock, had put a gun in his mouth and pulled a trigger. Martha.

MACCALLUM: Trace Gallagher, good stating from Las Vegas tonight. Here with more, Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, a CIA Trained Intel Operative, he’s been in strike with his sources in law enforcement; and former CIA Officer, Buck Sexton. Welcome, to both of we tonight.


MACCALLUM: Tony, let me start with you. What do we make of a latest information on this individual, confidence guard, not certain if he was armed or not, yet he put himself in a line of fire, for sure.

SHAFFER: He did an extraordinary job. And look, a indications are that his intervention, his going to a room competence good have finished dual things: initial off, give a military an accurate plcae to go after, that’s critically critical in this case. And secondly, he competence good have been a trigger that authorised for a gunman, for this male to radically take a coward’s proceed out and dedicate suicide, which, again, competence have well-saved lives. So, this is all good news.

My concern, still, is following adult on what we talked about final night, Martha, per a unequivocally thing that Trace usually talked about, a video equipment. My sources tell me that they’ve reviewed a information on that — on those videos and there are things that do layout, some bargain of his proclivity and his motives. So, we know, I’ve been told also they’re holding behind during slightest one apportionment of it formed on some of a inquisitive leads they wish to follow. And that’s given — that’s a justification I’m being told for a check in releasing this. But a bottom line, we know, my faith is formed on what I’ve been told. There’s a good understanding that some-more information permitted to law enforcement, during slightest during this point, per a motivation. we consider we should all find out about that unequivocally soon.

MACCALLUM: So, Tony, formed on what we and we talked about final night.


MACCALLUM: I’m picking adult in what you’re observant that we consider they’re holding behind on releasing some video or picture that competence indicate to a domestic focussed in this crime?

SHAFFER: That’s what I’ve been told. That’s what I’ve been told. I’ve been told that there’s a domestic angle of this, a people are endangered about. There is one authorised law coercion issue, according to my source. But we know, essentially, we saw already a domestic leaking — there’s been leaking of certain information per a guns. But notice, nobody leaked a video. So, this is where there’s some regard behind a scenes about given certain things are opening out during certain times.

MACCALLUM: Buck, what do we make of where we are tonight on this?

BUCK SEXTON, FORMER OFFICER, CIA: Well, we consider that to a indicate that usually made, we can’t unequivocally know many some-more than has already been pronounced about, where a motivate stands, that is that it’s going to be a work in swell to figure this out. We competence have one bit of information that comes out a subsequent few days that finally points us in a decisive direction. But I’m not even certain during that indicate given we’re traffic with somebody who clearly was psychopathic, who was peaceful to rivet in mass murder.

It competence not be a conditions where it creates clarity even when we have some-more information to anybody, how anyone could go about this. And given his amicable media impress online, given a footprint that he competence have left behind, that will substantially be useful in final his mindset, yet we don’t know how many he was unequivocally putting online, to start with. So, there’s a lot that law coercion is going to be combing by right now, and they’re putting together a puzzle, they don’t even know where all– what all a pieces are ostensible to be, never mind how they’re ostensible to fit together in a end.

MACCALLUM: So, formed on what we know so far, we see him some-more as a psychopath, that is a word that a FBI used for his father who was a refugee and a bank robber, than a militant — and when we contend terrorist, we meant someone who sought to scare people maybe for some arrange of domestic reason.

SEXTON: Yes. There’s 0 that we can indicate to right now that would seem like a transparent domestic agenda. So, that’s given a tenure terrorism, we think, has not been used here and we consider that that’s scold proceed so far. That could change unequivocally rapidly. This could, in fact, have been a militant attack. But that would be depending on a decisive belligerent opening out of all of this. And yes, when you’re articulate about a psychopath, somebody who’s a virulent narcissist — we mean, I’m certain you’ve had a lot of psychiatrists on a uncover or on a network in new days, looking during how we would diagnose that after a fact. But even that is not a ideal science, and we consider that that’s my desire is that we’ll find this was a deeply uneasy sold who was stealing it. we don’t consider his partner knew many about or anything about his mindset. And we consider he was stealing it from people and we consider that he snapped.

MACCALLUM: All right. We’ll see. Thank we unequivocally much, we guys. Tony and Buck, good to see we both tonight.

SHAFFER: Thank you.

MACCALLUM: So, opening adult next, violation news sum about a gunman’s girlfriend.


LOMBARDO: we have not finished a matter until now given we have been auxiliary with a authorities.


MACCALLUM: So, a authorities, from what we can tell, spent some-more than 6 hours barbecuing Marilou Danley. The biggest question: given didn’t she news him? Did she see a arsenal that he amassing, a explosive, all of this, during a home that they were in and during his other homes? So, adult next, an consultant on womanlike extremism looks during this attribute from what we know so distant and sheds some light on it. Also, tonight, some-more on President Trump’s outrageous day in Las Vegas. On a ground, vocalization with people, Bill Bennett will join me and will give us his take on how a trainer is doing this tragedy for America.

Plus, for a initial time given a Jun sharpened of House Majority Whip, Steve Scalise, a congressman reunites with 3 of his heroes for an disdainful story that is opening up. Their thoughts on that day and if it’s altered anything for these organisation when it comes to gun control.


MACCALLUM: Second amendment, any change of heart on this on this in this group?



MACCALLUM: Breaking tonight, usually into Fox News, we now know that a FBI has wrapped adult a six-plus hour speak with a Vegas gunman’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley. She was met by sovereign agents when she arrived behind in a United States during LAX this afternoon from a Philippines. Fox News arch comprehension match Catherine Herridge, live Washington with what we are training about all of that tonight. Hi, Catherine.

CATHERINE HERRIDGE, FOX NEWS CHIEF INTELLIGENCE CORRESPONDENT: Thanks, Martha. Fox News has schooled that Marilou Danley was located abroad regulating worldly law coercion collection that tracked her movements for several days once her attribute with Stephen Paddock was confirmed. Danley flew behind to a United States final night and willingly concluded to a FBI speak currently in Los Angeles. The counsel pronounced Danley’s final notation outing to a Philippines was Paddock’s idea. He had found a inexpensive sheet and afterwards he connected a hundred thousand dollars to her. Taking together his customer thought, Paddock was violation adult with her and a income was meant to alleviate a blow.


LOMBARDO: While there, he connected me money, that he pronounced was for me to buy a residence for me and my family. we have not finished a matter until now given we have been auxiliary with a authorities and we have willingly flown behind to America given we know that a FBI and Las Vegas Police Department wanted to speak to me. we will concur entirely with their investigation. Anything we can do to assistance palliate pang and assistance in any way.


HERRIDGE: The matter from Danley’s counsel sinks adult with what he sisters told a Australian radio that Paddock sent her divided for a reason.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: we know that she doesn’t know anything as well. She was sent away. She was sent so that she will be not there to meddle with what he’s planning.


HERRIDGE: There was unequivocally 0 in a lawyer’s matter tonight about a weapons. More 33 purchased by Paddock given Oct final year, and during slightest 18 during a home he common with Danley in Mesquite, Nevada, along with several thousand rounds of ammunition, Martha.

MACCALLUM: Catherine, appreciate we unequivocally much. Catherine Herridge, stating from Washington. Here now with more, Mia Bloom, a Professor during Georgia State University who has created several books about terrorism and aroused extremism, including a book about women and terror. Mia, good evening, good to have we here tonight. So, we know, before to a matter from a attorney, we knew zero, really, about this lady and possibly or not she competence have been concerned in any proceed or wakeful of what he was planning. What’s your take on it after a statement?

MIA BLOOM, PROFESSOR AT GEORGIA STATE UNIVERSITY: we consider there’s a large disproportion between — we have for example, before Baraklan, Ahmed Guluvaali sent his wife/live in partner divided and she finished adult in Islamic State. So, we have a contrariety with someone like Haya Bumi Jan, who was also sent divided in a days before a attack. She didn’t come behind to concur with authorities. We also saw a Tsarnaev, a mom of Tsarnaev brothers —

MACCALLUM: Catherine Tsarnaev, yes.

BLOOM: Catherine Russell. She wasn’t auxiliary with FBI. So, we consider in this sold case, a fact that Marilou came back, she’s operative with a FBI, we consider we indeed — I’m prone to trust her unless there’s justification otherwise.

MACCALLUM: Yes. You know, initially, there were questions about a Philippines, there’s an ISIS organisation there, ISIS twice announced shortcoming for this — that we consider was sincerely surprising given their history, right, Mia?

BLOOM: More than twice. Yes, they can’t stop dogmatic responsibility, and it’s kind of pitiable given we demeanour during a story of a individual’s life, and we see that Stephen Paddock was a drinker, they’ve even attempted to clear his drinking. But we know, as my crony and colleague, Paul Cruickshank said, there’s no justification for branch a gun on yourself. If we wish to be a martyr, we let those other people glow you, we don’t glow yourself.

MACCALLUM: So, there doesn’t appear, during slightest during this point, to be any link. And your take is that they’re secretly usurpation some shortcoming here to take credit for this, that we haven’t seen them do all that mostly yet it does demeanour like that competence be what happened here, right?

BLOOM: You know, my viewpoint has been — and we know, there are a lot of people who work on ISIS. we do a lot of investigate and I’ve talked to we on your uncover about a things that I’m doing on their encrypted acts. And we see them perplexing to take credit, yet a fact stays as if this is a wrong sold to be a infantryman of a caliphate. But also, they supposing no evidence. There’s no final will and testament. They keep observant it’s coming, it’s coming. But a fact is that, we know, if they hadn’t finished this fraudulent claim, we wouldn’t be articulate about ISIS during all. And it’s a homogeneous of what they call in psychology: “the fear of blank out.”

They wish to be partial of a conversation. And if they repeat it enough, they consider that they will get some credit. And we see in some areas Breitbart or Infowars, some of a swindling theories, they wish to trust that it’s ISIS, yet we privately don’t consider so. And we also consider anyone who’s auxiliary with a police, we give them a good understanding of credit. She’s got to be underneath an huge volume of pressure, and, we know, removing hatred mail, people meditative that she’s finished something that, we know, possibly she’s finished it or not. We have to let this play out and see what a FBI says.

MACCALLUM: Yes, we positively do. Mia, appreciate we unequivocally much. You’re a good voice on all of this. Good to speak to we tonight.

BLOOM: Thank we so many for carrying me, Martha. Great to see you.

MACCALLUM: You too. So, opening adult next, some-more of a president’s summary from Las Vegas today.


TRUMP: We can't be tangible by a immorality that threatens us or a assault that incites such terror.


MACCALLUM: What an awful week for this country. Bill Bennett is prepared to join us moments divided with his take on President Trump’s response to this tragedy and a line of tragedies that he has had to understanding with in this still immature presidency.

Plus, given did a secretary of state endorse to make a matter to a press over a title that surfaces this morning? Strange happenings today, Chris Stirewalt, with his singular reason of what is going on here, opening adult next.


REX TILLERSON, SECRETARY OF STATE: we offer during a appointment of a president. And I’m here for as prolonged as a trainer feels we can be useful to achieving his objectives.



MACCALLUM: Live demeanour tonight from Las Vegas. We do design that Sheriff Lombardo who has unequivocally been so superb by a march of this week in doing all of this news conference. He’s going to give his initial refurbish of a day on a unequivocally latest information that they have. So, when that gets underway, we will take we there. Also, right now, President Trump behind in a air, opening behind from Las Vegas during this point, approaching to land in Washington during any impulse tonight after assembly with these unequivocally dauntless individuals.

You could usually tell that being on a belligerent and be tighten to these folks and hear their stories was moving, really, to him and to everybody in a room today. There were people that he talked about, like Officer Tyler Peterson, who’s on a second day on a job, jumped in front of drifting bullets to save other people. He’s now in a sanatorium recovering. They were all pulling for him. Officer Charles Hartfield, a veteran, husband, and father, who mislaid his life while he was there off-duty enjoying a unison that night. So many stories, so many personal tragedies that, really, we’re usually removing a full clarity of as we learn these tellurian being’s stories. And we hear what their families are going through, it’s usually awful. The president, and those around him were clearly overwhelmed by all of this today.


TRUMP: Many families tonight will go to bed in a universe that is unexpected empty. The people they so dearly adore were ripped divided from them forever. Our souls are stricken with grief for any American who mislaid a father or a wife, a mom or a father, a son or a daughter. We know that your grief feels endless. We mount together to assistance we lift your pain.


MACCALLUM: Joining me now, Dr. Bill Bennett, Host of a “The Bill Bennett” podcast, and a Fox News contributor. Bill, good evening. Good to have we with us.


MACCALLUM: Boy, utterly a fibre of events that America has dealt with in new weeks, and a trainer has had to try to manage.

BILL: Yes, and we consider he’s managed unequivocally well. You know, usually one word about a progressing segments competence spin out to be unfathomable, competence spin out with all a expertise, we competence not know. There is a line about not even a demon himself knows a mind of man. I’m meditative about a trainer and initial lady, some smashing things that he said: we are surrounded by heroes, he said. Brings to mind Henry V, that indeed — can’t remember we few, we happy few, a rope of brothers. But this final judgment that we usually heard: “people will go to bed tonight, some people will go to bed and their universe has been emptied.”

You know, it’s engaging when Donald Trump does this and reads from a prepared speech. It’s not a well-spoken kind of over-emotional smoothness that we get from somebody who, we know, has used and practiced. He’s kind of a severe and prepared guy, we know, kind of a plain-spoken New Yorker. You can see how gentle he is, we know, usually articulate off a cuff, throwing paper towels out during a throng as he was doing in Puerto Rico. But there’s a genuine attract and we consider a genuine captivate to what he did currently given what he’s doing, he’s holding a celebrity and adjacent it, fighting it in with these words. And we can roughly see him thinking, I’m not going to get this wrong, I’m not going loose, I’m not going to off calm given —

MACCALLUM: Yes. we always watch a people in a room around. You know, and their response when he walked by a group, and, we know, we can see him articulate to people and we watched a faces of a people adult on that theatre with him or behind a podium. And we could tell that they were all feeling a same thing. These guys are exhausted. They have been out there all week perplexing to make clarity of this horrific, unhappy situation. And we know, we usually — you’ve felt it there today. And we know, it’s arrange of — it’s not created anywhere that, that’s a president’s avocation or it’s in a pursuit description, yet we have come in complicated times come to design it. And we know, infrequently it works improved than other times and a tough business.

BENNETT: And listen, consider about this. I’ll usually go to once discuss this: a trainer and initial lady — they have been to Texas, they have been to Florida, they have been to Puerto Rico, they have been to Las Vegas. They have seen misery. They have seen a pang of tellurian beings. They’ve reason their hands, they’ve have seen misery. They have seen pang of tellurian beings. They’ve reason their hands. They’ve hugged them. They’ve seen a destruction and a consequences in Las Vegas. When they go to bed tonight, what impact does this have on them? we remember a book we review in college and it was a divinity book, and pronounced if we have ears attuned adequate to hear all a pang of a universe during once it would overcome you.

Well, a Trumps have had a flattering good apportionment of a pang of a world, during slightest in America, in a final few weeks. And they have engrossed it unequivocally well, and presented themselves unequivocally well. I’m one American is unequivocally unapproachable of them. we admire what they have done. we admire their composure. And we suppose this is sketch them closer, yet we can't fathom what they are meditative about. What outcome this will have. The accumulative outcome of all they have seen. People should have some genuine consolation for them such as a consolation they have shown to a people in those 4 places.

MACCALLUM: There’s always a lot of critique to go around. That’s some clever disproportion from we tonight, Bill Bennett, about all of that. Thank we unequivocally much. Always good to see you, sir.

BENNETT: You bet.

MACCALLUM: So opening adult in Washington, it’s stable to contend that we do not see this any day.


UNINDENTIFIED MALE: Could we residence a categorical title of this story that we called a trainer a moron.


MACCALLUM: Wow, right? So how does a secretary of state respond to that claim? We’re going to uncover we what happened there. Chris Stirewalt joins us with his take on what’s unequivocally going on behind a scenes with all of that in D.C. And also, tonight, partial dual of a lay down with Congressman Steve Scalise reunited with these 3 guys behind him, also members on a hill, and they were there that day on a ball field. What a lawmakers consider about being targets given of their domestic affiliation, when we come back.


MACCALLUM: So we all got a demeanour during a shooter during some indicate during this. When we listened that he had a list of Republicans, that he was out there privately seeking Republicans, (INAUDIBLE) what went by your mind?



MACCALLUM: Some discouraging violation news tonight, U.S. Special Forces ambushed in a African republic of Niger. U.S. officials revelation Fox News that a unit of 8 to 10 U.S. special ops infantry were pounded in a western partial of a republic nearby a limit of Mali. Right now it is not famous if there are any fatalities, U.S.-Africa authority confirming a corner U.S.-Niger unit did come underneath fire, yet we are operative to endorse details. We’re, obviously, stay of that. And we will pierce we some-more information as shortly as we get it.

So weird impulse currently in Washington, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson entertainment a press to rebut a news about his attribute with a president, it all started with this NBC title saying, quote, Tillerson’s bushy during Trump compulsory an involvement from Pence. Tillerson review from a prepared statement, and afterwards he fielded questions heading to this.


UNINDENTIFIED MALE: Could we residence a categorical title of this story that we called a trainer a moron?

REX TILLERSON, U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE: I’m not going to understanding with sparse things like that. we mean, this is what we don’t know about Washington. Again, I’m not from this place. But a places we come from, we don’t understanding with that kind of sparse nonsense. And it is dictated to know 0 yet order people.


MACCALLUM: Oh, boy. Here now, Chris Stirewalt, Fox News politics editor. Chris, good dusk to you.



MACCALLUM: That was uncomfortable. What do we make of all that?

STIREWALT: Well, anytime you’ve got to reason a discussion to contend that we don’t consider your trainer is a moron, yet we don’t in that same press discussion say, and we never pronounced so either, yet instead we do what he did there that is afterwards Washington thing where we bend underneath one knee and we contend we wish to concentration on a critical matters here. That’s not a good day. And it comes during a finish of a prolonged duration of lift me-pull me aria between Trump and his secretary of state. This has been a diligent attribute roughly from a beginning, complaints from Tillerson about staffing. Complaints from Trump — well, we review it on twitter, Tillerson wasting his time in North Korea. Being publicly rebuked by your possess trainer on chatter is not a good day.

MACCALLUM: Yeah. So there is that history. There’s also a impulse when Rex Tillerson pronounced on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace that, we know, a president’s disproportion mount for themselves. When it came to Charlottesville, he didn’t unequivocally rush to urge a trainer in that instance. So there’s apparently some attrition here. Whether or not they can work by it is unequivocally a question. Here’s Rex Tillerson denying a NBC report. Let’s play that.


TILLERSON: The clamp trainer has never had to convince me to sojourn as secretary of state given we have never deliberate withdrawal this post.


MACCALLUM: What do we consider about that, Chris?

STIREWALT: I’m certain that he is revelation a law in a clarity that he has never severely considered, yet we gamble he has woken adult many days. Look, we have to remember a duration of time when this occurred, this was an administration in turmoil, turmoil, turmoil, a Charlottesville thing, a Boy Scout jamboree thing. Tillerson used to be a conduct of a Boy Scouts of America, and Trump goes there a creates a whole theatre during a jamboree. And this was a duration of time where a lot of people in this administration, even people we speak to contend we don’t know if we can take this. Now things are calmer. Now things have gotten some-more on an even keel now that John Kelly is in as arch of staff. But for Tillerson, now he’s got to eat a disproportion he pronounced months ago when a administration was in crisis.

MACCALLUM: Yeah. we mean, we know, people call any other stuff. You know, these are moving times. I’m certain that there have been copiousness of presidential histories where there’s a lot of name slinging around when people are traffic with critical situations, and maybe they don’t like where a other chairman stands on this or that. This yet from Bob Corker today, some flattering clever words, and he’s flattering many — he can contend whatever he wants now, right? we mean, he’s not going to run again, he’s announced. So here’s what Bob Corker pronounced today.


BOB CORKER, U.S. SENATOR: we consider Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Mattis, and arch of staff Kelly are those people that assistance apart a republic from chaos. we see what’s function here. we understanding with people via a administration. And he, from my perspective, is in a impossibly frustrating place. They act in a unequivocally — they work unequivocally good together to make certain that a policies we put onward around a universe are, we know, sound and coherent. There are other people within a administration in my faith that don’t.


MACCALLUM: Ten second thoughtfulness on that, Chris?

STIREWALT: It’s going to be a heck of a time examination Bob Corker as he goes out a doorway given we consider he’s got a lot of prohibited salsa left in his bottle.

MACCALLUM: Yeah. There’s a lot of coop adult disappointment in there. All right. Thank you, Chris. Good to see we as always.


MACCALLUM: Coming adult next, a disdainful with Congressman Steve Scalise and friends.


MACCALLUM: Tonight, this story disdainful for you, still dealing, of course, with a awful murdering in Las Vegas, yet it’s scarcely 4 months given another maniac open glow on a congressional ball use and scarcely killed Congressman Steve Scalise.


UNINDENTIFIED MALE: You demeanour over and we see a male station there with a purloin sharpened by a fence, dual some-more rounds go off, a second and third round, one of those strike Scalise, he goes down in a grass. You’ve saw a mud or a infield.

UNINDENTIFIED MALE: we was a initial out to Steve. And then, Brad, another member from Ohio who is a medicine came out and we practical vigour on a wound.

UNINDENTIFIED MALE: we did feel a small bit like we was behind in Iraq, yet though a same resources around me.


MACCALLUM: So yesterday, The Story met adult with those lawmakers and friends. Three of Scalise’s heroes who helped to save him. Watch.


MACCALLUM: So this is a initial time that we all have been behind together given Jun 14th in a same room. Steve, what goes by your mind when we see these guys?

STEVE SCALISE, U.S. CONGRESSMAN: Oh, man, it’s good to see them all here together. We’ve had a lot of sold conversations, yet any one of these guys had a purpose in assisting me be here. Obviously, Brad had a credentials to assistance make certain to stop a draining adequate to where we could make it to a sanatorium alive.

MACCALLUM: Yeah. we mean, all of we played such an critical role. And Mike Conaway, we wish to start with we given when we listened Steve articulate about that a other day and observant he was down yet he was unwavering and he listened we murmur to him, what were we observant to him?

MIKE CONAWAY, U.S. CONGRESSMAN: we was about 20-yards away, so what wheeze per say. But Steve was crawling. we was revelation him to lay still, lay still, given we didn’t wish a shooter to locate that transformation and rivet him again on a ground. And so we wanted him to lay still so that a shooter would go somewhere else and he did. And Steve listened it and stop crawling, and we was — we usually didn’t wish him shot again on a ground. And so it was usually a greeting to observant him yield and we did not wish a shooter to locate that transformation and reengage.

MACCALLUM: we can’t even suppose what it contingency been like for you, guys, to not be means to run out there. And to see him fibbing there given you’re all a kind of people who wish to do that. Jeff — senator, what was that like for you?

JEFF FLAKE, U.S. SENATOR: That was a toughest part. we went to a dugout, and afterwards one of a staffer was shot right in front of a cave and conduct to yield out. But there were several of us there. And another staffer came in and we have to put a tourniquet on his leg. So we were bustling doing that. But looking out intermittently to see Steve out there and not be means to do anything. Everytime we put your conduct adult there’s gunfire. And so, that was a longest wait. And finally, as shortly as somebody pronounced shooter down, afterwards we consider a series of us ran out there. we got out there first, yet we didn’t know what to do. I’m blissful Brad did.


FLAKE: It was usually fundamentally batting glove and perplexing to block adult a wounds. So it was usually terrifying, and usually awful not being means to get out to Steve. That was a misfortune part.

CONAWAY: It was a genuine usually position between a time — it seems like it was holding — we was means to steal a phone during 7:22 to call my mom and tell her that we was fine. And a other side it was possibly 7:06 or 7:09, so 13 mins all of that went on, and it seems like a life time when it was happening. But it was a brief duration of time on elapse basis.

MACCALLUM: So you’re were murmur to him, you’re articulate to him, he’s conference it like a whisper, yet those enlivening disproportion for you. You said, when we came too, that was one of a initial things that we brought up, right?

SCALISE: Yeah. we knew, we know, my colleagues pronounced — came out to assistance me. And it unequivocally did give me, we know, a unequivocally good clarity of ease and strength to know they’re holding caring of me and removing me ready. You know, we could hear paramedics opening and, we know, figured assistance was on a proceed and hoped I’ll get to a sanatorium quick.

MACCALLUM: Yeah. Congressman Wenstrup, what was your vigilance when we knew we could get out there? And we have a skills as a fight surgeon to do something.

BRAD WENSTRUP, U.S. CONGRESSMAN: By a beauty of God, we was in a position that a second we saw a shooter go down we took off. As we was running, Jeff was on his proceed out there with a few other people, and they’ve already their shirt off and put it on during Bryan Kelly’s shirt, put that right on a wound over his pant. we get out there and we knew there was some-more that we indispensable to demeanour during and we’re means to take it down. we saw a opening wound yet no exit wound, that when we knew Steve was in larger difficulty than we competence have imagined. And that’s when we get a tourniquet put on him and try to stop any draining we could internally, as good as bandaging what was external.

SCALISE: And that unequivocally did saved my life given a alloy said, when we got to a hospital, we was roughly out of blood afterwards if we would have mislaid even more. They pronounced that tourniquet was practical ideally and unequivocally did saved adequate of my time to make it to a sanatorium alive, differently we wouldn’t have.

MACCALLUM: So we all got a demeanour during a shooter during some indicate during this. When we listened that he had a list of Republicans, that he was out there privately seeking Republicans, Congressman Conaway, what went by your mind?

CONAWAY: When we initial listened of a list, Trent Kelly was articulate to Jeff Duncan, and told Jeff that a male had — that Jeff told Trent that he had talked to in a parking lot, immediately before a male asked him are these Republicans or Democrats? And Jeff pronounced they were Republican and a male says, OK, and usually wondered off. And afterwards after when we was articulate to Jeff, he has Jeff’s name in his pocket, and we asked Jeff how he felt and he’s start jolt all over.

But, we know, it’s a time — we know, we’ve got a integrate of guys out there who’s on that list and it was a bid deal. And we have never been shot during in anger. we did army training, low yield by a garland of appurtenance gun glow yet they’re not sharpened during you. But to be shot during is genuine surreal. we remember meditative as shortly as a initial bombardment went off and spin to run and observant bullets representation off a gravel, and we usually remember thinking, us, we know, here? How could somebody demeanour out and see a garland of center aged organisation personification ball and see a enemy?

FLAKE: Perhaps both of these guys removing killed is that we won’t be means to know why.

CONAWAY: we mean, what triggered — he had been during use a day before. One of a guys have seen him sitting in a bleachers. He’s been there given March. That was a final day to use on that margin before a following year. What was it — what triggered that means to go get his — lift out those weapons and come glow us? Same thing with this guy. By not being means to investigate that, it finished it harder to figure out usually what went by a mind to contend it’s not OK for me to try to take somebody’s life for whatever reason.

MACCALLUM: So your colleague, Gabby Giffords, went by a identical situation. And we saw her husband, Mark Kelly, vocalization out unequivocally forcefully about this. And observant if anybody thinks that a gun laws in this republic are clever enough, they need to demeanour again. When we demeanour during Las Vegas — and now I’m stability with my possess doubt about his criticism yesterday, a appurtenance that appears to have been used, semiautomatic converted to automatic, that is bootleg in this republic yet accessible, permitted on a internet that tools that we need to make — to spin that gun into an heated murdering appurtenance that mist all those bullets opposite that swarming Las Vegas. Second amendment, any change of heart on this in this group?

CONAWAY: Second amendment is upheld as collecting guns and aim sharpened and sport all those to all of us. The second amendment is not about that. Second amendment is about arm people to mount adult to restraint from a supervision that they would be opposite to. As so, we’ve need to expel a second amendment in a correct light, as we have this discuss let’s not mislay steer on given a second amendment is many critical to us. Yes, it’s collecting and hunting. And yes, there’s going to be time where, we know, automobiles are used improperly, and guns are used improperly, and drugs are used improperly, yet let’s be clever about what we do to ourselves in an try to try to stop people who aren’t lucid from doing things that they competence differently do. So usually be careful.

MACCALLUM: Senator, we consider a lot of people demeanour during Republicans on this emanate and contend that you’re heartless. That we demeanour during what happened during Sandy Hook, we demeanour during what happened to Steve Scalise on a ball field, and afterwards Las Vegas, that we need worse laws. What do we contend to those people who explain that Republicans have a tin ear on this issue?

FLAKE: we consider we’ll have discussions now about, we know, what was found in that hotel room in terms of accessibility of, we know, a ability to spin a semiautomatic into an involuntary weaponry is illegal, per say. But he’s seems to have entrance to element to change it. In terms of mental health, a ability of those with mental health — and issues in terms of support and pity of information between states and a sovereign government, there are areas of agreement that we can have and we consider we can pierce forward on.

MACCALLUM: And you’re unvaried on a issue?

SCALISE: You know if we demeanour during what occur in my case, we had people onsite with guns to immediately confront a shooter and take him down. And that happens any day in America where unchanging adults that have their possess guns given of a second amendment insurance are means to urge themselves opposite criminals.


MACCALLUM: My interjection to them with their time yesterday. We’re going to take a discerning break. We have some violation news we wish to pierce to you. We’ll be right back?


MACCALLUM: Update for we now on a U.S. Special Forces ambushed in a African republic of Niger. There are reports now that 3 immature berets were killed and dual some-more harmed in a West African nation. Fox is operative to endorse these reports. We’re told it was a unit of 8 to 10 special OP’s that were conflict in that area nearby Mali. So stay with us for any refurbish on that via a night. So a trainer now behind on his proceed as he gets this news to Washington. On a left, some of a images from his revisit to a sanatorium today. On a right, Marine One as he lands during Andrews Air Force Base this evening. So we’ll keep a tighten eye on those movements as well. And tonight before we go, we leave with we this.


MACCALLUM: All right. So it’s tumble now. Baseball deteriorate is a small bit of a ways away. You guys — we both play outfield?

FLAKE: First base.

MACCALLUM: First base?

SCALISE: Center field.

MACCALLUM: You guys are outfield.

CONAWAY: Second base.

WENSTRUP: Second base.

MACCALLUM: Second base. we pronounced progressing who’s going to take your mark this year?

SCALISE: Nobody.


SCALISE: I’m fighting to keep my starting job. You don’t have any guarantees. You’ve got to acquire it any year. But I’ve got something to work towards and I’ve got, we know, about 10 months to get there and that’s going to be one of my motivations.


MACCALLUM: We’ll be entertaining him on. We’ll see who is on second base, and wish he throws out a initial representation during that congressional ball game. Lots to come via a night. Lot of violation news. Thanks for being on The Story tonight. We’ll see we tomorrow.
