ABC: Rep. Elijah Cummings, House Oversight Committee Chair, is dead at 68

Recommended Posts

Elijah Cummings, the long-serving Democratic congressman who was deeply involved in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, has passed away at the age of 68.

 

He had represented Maryland's 7th congressional district since 1996.

 

As chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, he had a prominent role in the ongoing impeachment inquiry. His committee has also been investigating other actions by the president, including the Trump family.

 

His office announced that he passed away at approximately 2:45 a.m. Thursday at Johns Hopkins Hospital due to complications concerning longstanding health challenges.

He had an unspecified medical procedure on Sept. 19, causing him to miss one of his committees hearings. His office said at the end of September that they anticipated Cummings back at work when Congress returned to session.

 

At the time of the procedure, his office released the following statement: "I was very disappointed to miss today’s hearing. Unfortunately, I’ve had to have a medical procedure, and my doctors expect me to be back in the office in a week or so. However, nobody should mistake my absence as a lack of commitment to D.C. to statehood or passage of H.R. 51.”

I'm listening to MSNBC on radio & apparently they haven't heard yet. 

This makes me extremely sad.

 

RIP, sir...you worked your whole life to make things better.

I cried when I heard. Our world is a little less bright with his passing. His heart and courage will be sorely missed.

Trump better not say one word.  

 

 

His supporters are already celebrating on social media. One of my "friends" posted "No tears here!"

 

When Trump dies there will be many liberals celebrating and conservatives will call them monsters.

I thought he was much older, to be honest.
