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 ...

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.

Washington, D.C. (Nov. 17, 2016)— Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) lauded the Department of Treasury Community Development Financial Institutions Fund for providing four organizations in his district $275 million in tax credits.  The tax credits were awarded under the New Markets Tax Credit Program to Harbor Bankshares Corporation and Urban Action Community Development, LLC, both in Baltimore, Urban Research Park CDE, LLC in Hunt Valley, and ESIC New Markets Partners LC in Columbia.“I applaud the Obama Administration for awarding tax credits to these organizations so they can invest in jobs, community facilities and affordable housing for struggling families in Maryland and throughout the country,” Cummings said.  The New Markets Tax Credit Program, established by Congress in December 2000, permits individual and corporate taxpayers to receive a non-refundable tax credit against federal income taxes for making equity investments in vehicles known as Community Deve
Cummings Statement on Election Results
Washington, D.C. (Nov. 9, 2016)— Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement on the results of the 2016 presidential election:“I congratulate President-elect Trump on winning the electoral college, and I thank Hillary Clinton for her decades of service to the American people.   “I have always believed that we as a nation fare best when our eyes are focused on the road in front of us, rather than looking in the rear-view mirror. The campaign was difficult and hard-fought, but now is the time for us to look forward, not back. Now is the time to work together as a nation, not as two parties  competing against another. Now is the time to unite as Americans not merely to find common ground, but to aspire to lift our nation to higher ground.  “President-elect Trump said last night that he wants to unite our country; I take him at his word.  It is now more important than ever that Congress does the very important business that the American people
Cummings, Cicilline, 168 House Democrats Urge President-Elect Trump to Reverse Bannon Appointment
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) joined Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) and 168 House Members to send a letter asking President-elect Donald Trump to rescind alt-right leader Steve Bannon’s appointment as White House Chief Strategist. Although Republican members of the House were invited to sign Cicilline’s letter, none did so. “We strongly believe that Mr. Bannon’s appointment will not allow the country to heal and come together as one. As one of your top advisors, the White House chief strategist will help set the tone for your administration. The person in this role must be prepared to serve the interests of all Americans, not those of a select few,” the Members wrote. Click here for a PDF of the letter.

Cummings, Dutch Ruppersberger and John Sarbanes (all D-MD) sent a letter yesterday to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Mayor-Elect Catherine Pugh to inquire on the status of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the City of Baltimore’s consent decree negotiations. The Members wrote, “We appreciate that it is no small task to ensure the decree fully addresses the DOJ recommendations and includes workable implementation steps.  However, we are hearing growing concern from the community about the status of and delay in drafting the decree.  We share those concerns.  It is absolutely imperative that decisive, steady, urgent progress toward crafting a meaningful consent decree be made a top priority by all involved.”  Following the release of the DOJ Civil Rights Division’s report on the “pattern or pract
