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 ...

Cummings (D-MD) celebrated the U.S. Postal Service’s release of the Alzheimer’s Semipostal stamp and honored the advocates who made the creation of this stamp possible.

Brennan and NIH Deputy Director of the National Institute on Aging Dr. Marie A.

Baltimore, MD- (November 16, 2017) – Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement after learning of the passing of Baltimore City Police Detective Sean Suiter who was shot in the head while conducting an investigation: “My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Detective Sean Suiter. I was deeply saddened to learn of this young man’s death. His life was cut far too short while he was simply doing his job protecting others. Det. Suiter served the people of Baltimore for 18 years, and was gunned down callously in the line of duty by a heartless criminal. I urge anyone who has any information regarding this shooting to contact the Baltimore City Police immediately. We cannot allow these vicious acts of violence to continue. It is time for all of us to work together to ensure the safety of our community.”
Cummings Condemns Administration Haitian Temporary Protected Status Decision
Baltimore, M.D. (November 21, 2017) – Today, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement condemning the Trump Administration’s decision to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haitians in July 2019 and urging the passage of legislation to codify protections for Haitians, Salvadorans, and other TPS recipients living in the United States: “I am appalled that the Trump Administration has announced the end of TPS for tens of thousands of Haitians living in the United States.  As I have stated before, ending TPS will cruelly and needlessly upend their lives and the lives of their children while adding to the profound humanitarian challenges that continue to grip Haiti. I urge the administration to reconsider this decision, and to extend TPS for El Salvador, Honduras, and other countries as those statuses come up for renewal in the coming months.” “I also again call upon Speaker Ryan to bring legislation to the floor that will protect these individuals from
