Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings Dies at 68

Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings, who was taking part in the investigation into the dismissal process of Donald Trump, president of the United States, died on Thursday at the age of 68.

“The respected Baltimore representative died at Johns Hopkins Hospital “as a result of complications from longstanding health problems,” a statement from his office said.

As chair of the House’s Oversight and Reform Committee, Cummings was at the center of the investigation into the political judgment on President Trump.

In July, the president described Baltimore as a “rat-infested disaster” from which “no human would like to live” and accused Cummings, an African-American who has represented much of the black majority city in Congress since 1996.

Cummings responded that government officials should stop making “hateful and incendiary comments” that only divide the nation.

The representative also faced Trump for his policy of detaining migrants.
