Breaking: Longtime US Democratic Congressman and #NeverTrumper Elijah Cummings from Baltimore Passes Away

Democrat Elijah Cummings has passed away.

The BBC reported this morning that Democrat Cummings has died at the age of 68 –

His office said he died due to “longstanding health challenges”.

As chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Mr Cummings instigated several investigations into the Trump administration.

Earlier this year, he clashed with the president over the controversial detention of immigrants.

During the exchange, President Trump called Mr Cummings’ majority-black Baltimore district a “disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess”, prompting criticism from several leading Democrats.

The congressman had several health problems in recent years, and received treatment for his heart.

The Democrats, their media and RINOs like Mitt Romney and Chris Wallace called Trump a racist in July because the President pointed out that Baltimore is a failed Democrat cesspool with an escalating homicide rate and rat-infested homes.

Billions of taxpayer dollars were given to Cummings’ district in 2018 but no one knows where the money went.

Cummings’ district failed with him in charge.  The people in Baltimore were living in 3rd world conditions.

Cummings himself said back in 1999 that Baltimore is “infested” with drugs.

The 1999 video of Cummings was making the rounds and President Trump grabbed it and shared it with the world in a tweet.

Cummings used his actions during the civil rights movement of the 1960’s to justify his activities as a US Representative.  But by the end he had lost any resemblance of freedom and fairness for all as was evident in his unconstitutional and unethical efforts to try to illegally impeach President Trump for no crimes at all.

The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust asked the Maryland attorney general to investigate whether Rep. Elijah Cummings and his wife used a charity for improper self-enrichment in early July.

This came after previous reports that a charity run by Maya Rockeymoore, the wife of Rep. Elijah Cummings, received millions from special interest groups and corporations that had business before her husband’s committee.

Prior to this, House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) demanded private emails from Trump Administration officials to determine if they violate record-keeping laws.

President Trump responded to this abuse and other actions slandering the Border Patrol with the following tweets –

This all led to questions about the billions lost in Cummings’ district – no one knows where it went –

It’s a sad day for the Democrat Party to lose such an integral piece of their corrupt machine.
