Capitol police guarding the House majority whip then fatally shot Hodgkinson.
The alleged shooter, identified as James T. Hodgkinson, was a volunteer at many of Sanders' rallies.
"The 99 per cent are getting pushed around and the one per cent don't give a damn", said Hodgkinson in the 2011 video. "I can not believe it", she said. "I can't wrap my head around it", she said.
"I just want you to all go away and leave my neighbors in peace", she said.
She said she didn't know he had a gun with him.
Russell said she walked out of the building and into the parking lot - and that's when she said she "heard this pop or boom".
When asked why he left and why he went to the Washington D.C. area specifically, Hodgkinson said her husband wanted to "work on taxes" with government officials, with a goal of changing the tax brackets.More news: Champions Trophy 2017: Pakistan stun England to reach final

Today, The Daily Caller published an exclusive story about a list found in James Hodgkinson's pocket after police brought him down. The hospital said Wednesday that Scalise "will require additional operations". At the request of the family, we will continue to provide periodic updates. His father said he's OK, and Rep. Williams said that his staffer had already been released from the hospital and would make a full recovery.
Scalise, who was reportedly shot in the hip, underwent surgery on Wednesday morning. The latter is an invitation to people like Hodgkinson to take matters into their own hands through violence.
New reports about the shooter have recently come to light, revealing that this may not have been an unfathomable act for the man to commit. A Capitol Police officer was also injured in the incident. On Thursday House proceedings were to resume as usual, and lawmakers were returning to the Capitol in search of some semblance of normalcy.
Stephen Brennwald, another YMCA member, said he never saw Hodgkinson talk to anyone and figured the man was a "loner". In a national address, Trump appealed for unity following the morning assault in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Virginia.
The Congressional Baseball Game is a long-standing summer tradition in Washington, with teams of Republican and Democratic lawmakers competing on the ball field, even in recent years, when fractious political debates are the norm. Tickets for the game were selling at the rate of 500 per hour following the shooting, with proceeds benefiting a number of local charities.
