Oh wow, just heard this. His office said it was due to longstanding health issues?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2 ... baltimore/

Quote:
Elijah E. Cummings, a Democratic congressman from Maryland who gained national attention for his principled stands on politically charged issues in the House, his calming effect on anti-police riots in Baltimore, and his forceful opposition to the presidency of Donald Trump, died early Thursday morning at Gilchrist Hospice Care, a Johns Hopkins affiliate in Baltimore. He was 68.

After undergoing an unspecified medical procedure, the Democratic leader did not return to his office this week, the Baltimore Sun reported. A statement from his office said that he had passed away due to “complications concerning longstanding health challenges.” Mr. Cummings was chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee and a leading figure in the Trump impeachment inquiry.

I like how he looks to Schumer for some kind of support and Schumer maintains that smirk all the way through.

Maybe he thinks Schumer will be like “Yeah I get that sometimes too don’t worry it’s both sides like your constituency says to make themselves feel less evil.”
