Why the shooter waited
25 March 2017 | by christydcarterSee all my reviews

To gjenevieve, I think the shooter was waiting until he was fully sworn in as VP before taking the shot. Then there would be no questions about him stepping up to become President. I have been binge watching to try and get caught up on the season. I am really loving the show! I think Kiefer Sutherland is doing an excellent job, and it's nice to see him back on TV.
