Issa hammers Cummings for using Abramoff


Top House oversight committee Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings wants to attack former lobbyist Jack Abramoff — again — in a Congressional hearing. While admitting Abramoff successfully completed his “three-and-a-half year sentence” in prison, and pointing out that the House oversight committee has, for years, “worked in a bipartisan manner to investigate the illegal activities of Mr. Abramoff and his associates, as well as the implications of his actions on the transparent and effective operation of our government,” Cummings wants to again dredge up the matter ...


Elijah Cummings, the Homeowner Crusader


For President Barack Obama, fixing the collapsed housing market may be a part of political calculus, a key factor in winning a second term. For Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the fight to keep people in their homes and out of foreclosure is a personal mission. “I feel it just sitting here and talking to you — it’s emotion,” Cummings told POLITICO in an interview last week. “When I walk out of my door every morning, five of 15 homes on the other side of the street are in foreclosure. … I see the devastation it brings on people every day.” And ...


Elijah Cummings: Obama Needs To 'Fight Harder'


Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), responding to the high unemployment rates in the black community, said that African-Americans feel President Barack Obama "needs to fight, and fight harder." “We are totally frustrated, and people need to know that the president feels their pain,” Cummings, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, told CNN's Candy Crowley on “State of the Union” Sunday. “Almost every African-American person I spoke to said he needs to fight, and fight harder,” Cummings said. Last week, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) blasted Obama for ...

Katko, Cummings Reintroduce Bipartisan Legislation to Place Harriet Tubman on $20 Bill
Washington, D.C. (September 8, 2017) – Today, U.S. Representatives Elijah E. Cummings (MD-07) and John Katko (NY-24) renewed their bipartisan effort to honor the life of Harriet Tubman—introducing The Harriet Tubman Tribute Act, which would require the Secretary of the Treasury to place Harriet Tubman’s likeness on the $20 bill beginning in 2020.  Cummings and Katko introduced similar legislation in June 2015.“Too often, our nation does not do enough to honor the contributions of women in American history, especially women of color,” Cummings said.  “Harriet Tubman was called the Moses of her people, because after she escaped slavery, she courageously made 19 trips to the South to free more than 300 enslaved African Americans.  Her courage, conviction and commitment to equality represent the best of America and it is long past time we recognize her place in history.  I am proud to introduce this bill with Rep. Katko to honor Harriet Tubman’s role in making America a
Cummings Supports Howard University’s Selection of James Comey as Opening Convocation Keynote Speaker and Endowed Chair in Public Policy
Washington, D.C. (September 21, 2017) — Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings issued the following statement supporting Howard University’s selection of Former FBI Director James Comey as their Opening Convocation Keynote Speaker this year and the 2017-2018 Gwendolyn S. and Colbert I. King Endowed Chair in Public Policy:“As a Howard University Alumnus and having served as the Endowed Chair in Public Policy at my alma mater, I believe that a college campus serves its students best when it allows for the exchange of diverse ideas and opinions.  While I served as the King Endowed Chair, I invited my colleagues from both sides of the aisle, including outspoken Senators Rand Paul and Cory Booker, for a dynamic debate about criminal justice reform. Students had the rare opportunity to engage with leaders directly involved with shaping a critical public policy issue. There is no comparison to the real world learning experience the students will gain from Mr. Comey’s challenging and h

The reforms that the monitor team will oversee represent much-needed change for the city. As we have said before, we hope these reforms will make BPD a model for the nation.” “The monit
Baltimore Delegation Statement on Federal Freddie Gray Case
Washington, D.C. (September 12, 2017) — Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings joined U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen, and Congressmen John Sarbanes and Dutch Ruppersberger (all D-MD) in issuing the following statement on reports that the Department of Justice (DOJ) will not bring federal charges against the Baltimore City Police Department (BPD) officers involved in the death of Freddie Gray:   “We are disappointed by reports that DOJ will not seek justice for Freddie Gray, but we are not surprised.  We must now focus on ensuring that BPD has the resources it needs to implement the court-ordered consent decree and repair the sacred trust between police officers and the people they are sworn to protect.   “In order to improve BPD and reduce the violence in our city, Baltimore will need the support of the Trump Administration and DOJ.  Unfortunately, the Trump Administration has repeatedly stood in the way of our City’s progress by attempting to impede the i
