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 ...

Kilmer, Sewell, Cummings, and 51 House Democrats Urge VP to Investigate Voter Suppression and Disenfranchisement
Washington, D.C. (Mar. 8, 2017)—Today, U.S. Representatives Derek Kilmer (D-WA), Terri Sewell (D-AL), Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD), and 51 House Members sent a letter to Vice President Mike Pence urging the Trump Administration to cease its “investigation” into the voter fraud myth and instead investigate the widespread issue of voter suppression.  Cummings hand-delivered the letter to the White House during a meeting today with President Trump. The Members wrote, “All Americans deserve a voice in our elections and the freedom to cast their votes without interference.  However, restrictive voter suppression laws and intimidation tactics threaten that process.  There are serious concerns about election laws being passed and considered by states across the country and their impact on the ability of eligible voters to access the ballot box.” The letter requested that the Vice President appoint voter suppression experts to his task force and requested a response from him in two
Team Maryland Calls on U.S. Attorney, FBI to Investigate Hate Crimes in Maryland, Following Local and National Anti-Semitic Threats and Incidents
Washington, D.C. (Mar. 1, 2017) – Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings joined Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen, and Congressmen Steny H. Hoyer, Anthony Brown, John K. Delaney, Andy Harris, Jamie Raskin, C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger and John P. Sarbanes (all D-MD) sent a letter to Rod Rosenstein, U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland, and his counterpart at the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), Gordon B. Johnson, Special Agent in Charge, Baltimore, urging them to use “the full resources of the Justice Department to investigate and prosecute hate crimes and violence in the state of Maryland.” As recent as Monday, another wave of threats to Jewish day schools and institutions occurred across the country, including Jewish day schools in Rockville and Annapolis, and a Jewish Community Center in Owings Mills.  The delegation wrote, “In Maryland, bomb threats have disrupted classroom activities as well as events at Jewish community centers, coupled with the rise of
Cummings Statement on President Trump’s Second Attempt to Ban Muslims and Refugees
Washington, D.C. (Mar. 6, 2017)—Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement on President Trump’s second attempt to ban Muslims and refugees: “Following a series of defeats in court for his first un-American Muslim ban, President Trump is attempting to revise his unconstitutional policy.  But the American people should not be fooled by the President’s second attempt: his policy still bans immigrants only from Muslim-majority countries, it still cruelly blocks refugees, it is still un-American, and it still will harm American national security interests more than help them.” Last month, several news outlets reported that an internal Department of Homeland Security memo found that citizenship was an “unlikely indicator” for terror threats within the United States, contradicting President Trump’s claims that his Muslim ban will protect Americans from acts of terrorism.   During an interview on FOX News last month, Senior White House Poli
Cummings Statement on President Trump’s Address to Joint Session of Congress
Washington, D.C. (Feb. 28, 2017)— Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement on President Donald Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress:  “In the 40 days since he was sworn in, President Trump has shown that he will be a champion for Wall Street, not the American people.   “By this point in his presidency, President Obama had already signed  legislation to help ensure equal pay for women, expand children’s access to health insurance, and bring our economy back from the brink of collapse.   “Instead of building on the progress our nation has made in the last eight years, President Trump is going backwards and returning to the failed trickle-down economic policies of the past.  President Trump has made it easier for Wall Street to prey on Americans’ hard-earned retirement savings; appointed people to key posts in his administration who want to slash Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid; and declared war on Americans’ ri
