Rep. Elijah Cummings, the powerful House Democrat who represented Baltimore for more than two decades and was a vocal critic of President Trump, died early Thursday after battling health problems, his office said in a statement.

Cummings, who was 68, died at Gilchrist Hospice Care, a Johns Hopkins affiliate. As chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, he was one of the most powerful Democrats in Washington, and played a key role in the House Democrats' ongoing efforts to impeach Trump.

His office said in a brief statement that he died "due to complications concerning longstanding health challenges." Cummings had been in ill health the past few years, navigating the Capitol in a motorized cart and using a walker.

"He worked until his last breath because he believed our democracy was the highest and best expression of our collective humanity," his wife, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, said in a statement.

Tributes poured in Thursday from lawmakers and others in politics on both sides of the aisle.

"My heart is broken, as I weep personally and for his family and community," Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said. "Elijah Cummings’ unmatched integrity and leadership leaves a remarkable legacy."

"The news that our friend and colleague Elijah Cummings has passed away marks a sad day for the members of the United States Congress, the people of Baltimore, and the entire nation," said House GOP Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney, a Republican lawmaker from Wyoming.

Cummings did not return to work after an undisclosed medical procedure that he said would only keep him away for about a week. The New York Times reported that Cummings had heart surgery in 2017 and had a bacterial infection in his knee.

Cummings was known for driving himself back and forth from Baltimore and Washington -- sometimes multiple times a day -- to make committee hearings, floor votes and attend to issues in his district.

In the House, Cummings built a substantial power base. At the time of his death, he was chairman of the influential House Oversight Committee and a leading voice in the Congressional Black Caucus. He played a key role in the impeachment inquiry into Trump.

However, Cummings had not been seen the past few weeks at closed-door interviews, alongside House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel. However, every subpoena, document request or statement which was issued on impeachment of late was done in the name of all three committee chairs. New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney is next in seniority to take over the gavel of the committee.

During the Obama years, Cummings -- as the top Democrat on the Oversight Committee -- was known as a relentless defender of the administration during high-profile congressional probes, including during the investigation of the Benghazi attacks.

Cummings was born on Jan. 18, 1951. In grade school, a counselor told Cummings he was too slow to learn and spoke poorly, and he would never fulfill his dream of becoming a lawyer.

"I was devastated," Cummings told The Associated Press in 1996, shortly before he won his seat in Congress. "My whole life changed. I became very determined."

Cummings, a sharecropper's son and one of seven children, led multiple investigations of the president's governmental dealings, including probes in 2019 relating to the president's family members serving in the White House.

He clashed with Trump after the president criticized his district as a "rodent-infested mess" where "no human being would want to live."

Cummings replied that government officials must stop making "hateful, incendiary comments" that only serve to divide and distract the nation from its real problems, including mass shootings and white supremacy.

"Those in the highest levels of the government must stop invoking fear, using racist language and encouraging reprehensible behavior," Cummings said in a speech at the National Press Club.

He clashed with Trump...Cummings replied that government officials [IOW, President Trump] must stop making "hateful, incendiary comments"...

THAT didn't take long.

(But will all that fit on Cummings' tombstone?)

After Trump's recent bashing of Cummings and his district and how little Cummings has accomplished for them over the decades, I think about Trump's ongoing attacks on McStain even after he was dead and I have to wonder if Trump will do that with Cummings or if he'll try to make nice and pretend to be full of grief.

It could be a little dicey since Ben Carson is a longtime resident of Cumming's district and he might be expected to attend the funeral.

There will be a sudden struggle for leadership of the Congressional Black Caucus where Cummings was the Dem party's Uncle Tom for many years. So who will surge to the fore to replace him?

I expect that Kamala Harris and Corey Booker are racing to the microphones to deliver a lot of crocodile tears, perhaps to pad their own resumes to run as a VP candidate in 2020 or for prez in 2024.

I'd hate to be a reporter standing between Corey Booker or Kamala Harris and a camera right now. You'd get stampeded in their rush to claim the mantle of a new era of leadership.

Neither Harris nor Booker has the gravitas. Mad Max? Perhaps she can double up on her committees. It should be interesting.

Maya Rockeymoore, widow of Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and chairwoman of the Maryland Democratic Party, is expected to run for her late husband’s House seat, according to a report.

Rockeymoore has not yet said whether she plans to run, The Washington Examiner reported. The Maryland Democratic Party released a statement that Rockeymoore would not be making announcements while she grieves.
