U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings of Baltimore, a committee chairman known for his devotion to Baltimore and civil rights and for blunt and passionate speechmaking, died of longstanding health problems early Thursday morning, his office said. He was 68 years old.

The Democrat, a key figure in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump as chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, died at Gilchrist Hospice Care, a Johns Hopkins affiliate, at approximately 2:45 A.M., a spokeswoman said.

 The article goes on to state the following:

Cummings, who had been absent from Capitol Hill in recent weeks while under medical attention, had health issues in recent years. In 2017, he underwent an aortic valve replacement. The procedure, which aides described as minimally invasive in Cummings’ case, is used to correct narrowing of the aortic valve in the heart. The surgery led to an infection that kept him in the hospital longer than expected. He was later hospitalized for a knee infection, but he said this summer that his health was fine.

The report states that Cummings had not participated in a roll call vote since September 11.

    Prayers for his family and all those close to him. Prayers for those commenting that they receive a dose of love and leave the judgment to the only one qualified.

      Sorry Bobby Boy, I am intelligent and informed enough to know this scumbag was an evil, thieving, treasonous pig who deserves nothing less than to burn in hell forever.

      Obviously you are too brainwashed/ignorant to make such a judgement.

    I think it is in poor taste to talk badly of the dead. May his family find peace during this very trying time.
    I am sure he did what he thought best for the people of his district.
    May everyone on both sides use this time to dedicate programs to help the people of Baltimore overcome the issues of poverty in that district. It shouldn’t be about fighting with each other but working together to solve problems.

    I’m Black and is very sadden and heartbroken to see how Black Americans have been brainwashed by Black Democrats especially in believing the democrat party is good for them, because they throw them some crumbs for their table (food stamps, welfare, section 8 housing, falling schools, fatherless children) thanks Mr Cummings and your party for destroying the Black Family. Mr Cummings lived through the civil rights era and experience the hateful acts of the Democrat Party/KKK towards black Americans and was the champion in the House of Congress always talking about civil rights and the struggle of blacks in the past, and he totally forgot to give thanks to his party for those Great Years of Slavery , Bondage,Death,Rape,and let’s not forget those Great hanging from trees of black men ,women and children by his Beloved Democrat Party and up to the Civil Right Movement. He somehow forgot The Civil Rights Bill passed in 1965, by Republicans, that his Democrat Party forth like Hell Against , Mr Cummings. I’m completely bewildered that black people would actually register to be a member of a political party that founded the Party of the KKK and was once called the Nazi Party. Well Mr Cummings hope you asked Jesus Christ for forgiveness and if not , I hope that you get a chance to met all those innocent babies of all races that you help put to the slaughter, just and you Your Democrat Party slaughtered many of your ancestors. Your work on God’s earth is done
