Rep. Elijah Cummings, a powerful House Democrat and representative of the people of Baltimore for more than twenty years, passed away early Thursday morning following a battle with health problems according to his office and family.

Cummings was an ardent and vocal critic of President Trump’s, the pair often verbally sparring on social media, including a recent dust up where the president mocked Cummings poor performance and its contribution to the filthy condition of the city.

Here are more details from Fox News:

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.

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

“I was shocked and saddened to learn the news this morning of my dear friend’s passing,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, a fellow Maryland Democrat, said in a statement. “Elijah Cummings was a man of principle, patriotism, and conviction, whose loss will be deeply felt throughout the State of Maryland and our country.”

The White House has lowered the flag to half-staff.

Despite their differences, President Trump sent out a rather warm, heartfelt message to the family and friends of Cummings for the loss of their loved one:

“My warmest condolences to the family and many friends of Congressman Elijah Cummings,” Trump tweeted. “I got to see first hand the strength, passion and wisdom of this highly respected political leader. His work and voice on so many fronts will be very hard, if not impossible, to replace!”

Cummings office released a statement saying that he died “due to complications concerning longstanding health challenges.” Cummings has had health problems consistently over the last few years, often navigating the Capitol in a motorized cart or with the aid of a walker.

During his time in office Cummings managed to build a rather substantial power base, being the chairman of the House Oversight Committee and becoming a top voice in the Black Caucus.

He also played a rather large roll in getting the impeachment inquiry against Trump initiated.

WATCH: Biden Calls Military Members ‘Stupid B—’ During Overseas Speech As Vice President

And the MSM will remain silent.

It wasn’t that long ago when the mainstream media pushed a story accusing President Trump of denigrating US military members. The reports have been widely debunked, as one would expect. However, here’s actual footage of 2020 Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden calling them “stupid bastards.” And the MSM will remain silent. From The Daily Wire: A video emerged on Friday of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden calling soldiers “stupid bastards” and a “dull bunch” during a speech overseas to U.S. soldiers while he was serving as vice president in the Obama administration. WATCH: https://twitter.com/robbystarbuck/status/1309604720546373633?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1309604720546373633%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbreaking-video-emerges-of-joe-biden-calling-u-s-troops-stupid-bastards-during-speech-biden-campaign-responds Team Biden has put out a statement saying Joe was just joking. They must be tired of doing that by now. When Joe was in Germany he decided to bash America because apparently doing so on U.S. soil just isn’t enough. According to Biden, the United States is “an embarrassment.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1096974881801957376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1096974881801957376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fjoe-biden-goes-to-germany-trashes-america-as-an-embarrassment%2F

Pelosi: If GOP Moves Forward With SCOTUS Nomination ‘There Has To Be A Price To Pay’

And what would that be??

Nancy Pelosi doesn’t think Joe Biden should debate President Trump. She doesn’t give a legitimate reason why, but come on – we all know why. Joe isn’t all there. From Fox News: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday doubled down on her argument that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should not debate President Trump, claiming the Republican incumbent and his “henchmen” have no “fidelity” to facts or the truth. Asked during an interview on “Morning on CBS” whether she still believed the former vice president should skip the three scheduled debates, Pelosi said: “Oh, I do. Not that I don’t think he’ll be excellent. I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth and, actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States.” Here’s video of Pelosi claiming there “has to be a price to pay” if Republicans move forward with a SCOTUS nomination before the general election. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHx56Kxmea0&feature=emb_title Rush Limbaugh makes an excellent point about this upcoming SCOTUS pick. Congressional Republicans, take note. From The Hill: Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh urged Senate Republicans to skip the confirmation hearing process for President Trump’s soon-to-be announced Supreme Court nominee and head straight to a floor vote. “I want the Judiciary Committee — that could be great if it were skipped,” Limbaugh said Monday on his daily radio program. “We don’t need to open that up for whatever length of time, so that whoever this nominee is can be Kavanaugh’d, or Borked, or Thomas’d. Because that’s what it’s going to be, especially when it’s not even required.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/mmfa/status/1308100957390151683?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1308100957390151683%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fmedia%2F517408-rush-limbaugh-encourages-senate-to-skip-hearings-for-trumps-scotus-nominee H/T: Right Scoop
