Lindsay Rann, public affairs specialist with the FBI's Washington field office, declined to comment on the alleged list, citing the ongoing investigation.

She added that law enforcement officials are cautioning against drawing conclusions about the list or the suspect's motivations for having it until more information is available. Duncan said he answered that the players were Republicans, before leaving the field.
