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.

It is now being rumored that Cummings’ wife will run for his seat in the House. She’ll grieve for a little while and then she’ll probably run. Because that’s what a normal person would do?

Maya Rockeymoore, widow of Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and chairwoman of the Maryland Democratic Party, is expected to run for her late husband’s House seat, according to a report.

Rockeymoore has not yet said whether she plans to run, The Washington Examiner reported.

The Maryland Democratic Party released a statement that Rockeymoore would not be making announcements while she grieves.

The White House has lowered the flag to half-staff in honor of Cummings.

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

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.

Katie Hill Criticizes Paul Gosar For Epstein Tweets; Gosar Fires Back And Says ‘You Taught The Country What A ‘Throuple’ Was’

Published

Rep. Paul Gosar, Arizona, struck back at his former colleague Katie Hill after she ripped him for tweeting about the “suicide” of Jeffrey Epstein, a current hot topic and popular meme circulating around the Internet. Gosar’s burn was aimed at Hill’s recent controversy involving lewd photographs of her with a staffer who she had an inappropriate relationship with, noting that she taught the country what a “throuple” was. Here’s more from Fox News: Hill reprehended Gosar over a series of tweets that spelled out “Epstein didn’t kill himself,” a line that has been appearing in memes and on social media. Hill blasted him for “tweeting out real conspiracy theories.” “No[,] like this actually happened. Real members of Congress tweeting out real conspiracy theories. In an acrostic no less,” Hill tweeted. Gosar fired back, “You’re surprised by me? You single-handedly taught an entire country a new word. #throuple,” Gosar reacted. “And wth is up with that tattoo? Relax.” “Throuple,” which is a term to describe a three-person relationship, was the arrangement Hill reportedly had with her estranged husband and a female campaign staffer. Hill accused her estranged husband of leaking the nude photos as “revenge porn” amid their messy divorce. Hill’s attorneys also vehemently denied allegations made in a DailyMail story that one of the nude photos shows a “Nazi-era Iron Cross” tattoo. Gosar got a whole lot of attention on his Twitter account Wednesday after he let loose with a series of tweets he made in connection with the ongoing testimony of U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor and State Department official George Kent as the first witnesses in the impeachment hearings against President Trump. The first letter of each of the tweets spells out “Epstein didn’t kill himself.” Rather clever, wouldn’t you agree?

First Day Of Public Impeachment Hearings Turns Up The Pressure On Moderate Democrats

Published

on

Much attention is now being cast toward moderate Democrats in the House, especially in swing districts, with the first day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump now under wraps. The day finished up without any major revelations coming to light, highlighting the weakness of the Democrats’ key witnesses in the case against the president. Many of these witnesses are relying on second-hand information, having not interacted even once with the president. Here’s more from Fox News: At one point in Wednesday’s hearing, Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., even appeared to embrace hearsay testimony, claiming that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct” and that “countless people have been convicted on hearsay because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay.” It was unclear which of those limited exceptions would apply to Wednesday’s testimony — and whether Quigley’s argument would persuade critical swing-vote Democrats. The House is now comprised of 431 members, meaning Democrats need 217 yeas to impeach Trump. There are currently 233 Democrats, so Democrats can only lose 16 of their own and still impeach the president. 31 House Democrats represent more moderate districts that Trump carried in 2016. Freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich. — who flipped a GOP district in 2018 that Trump won by 7 points in 2016 — told Fox News that she was tentatively weighing all the evidence. “My constituents expect me to make an objective decision,” Slotkin said as the hearings concluded, “not one based on an hour of testimony.” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1194710194166497281 There’s also a report floating around that is suggesting that if House Democrats impeach the president, Senate Republicans are going to hold a lengthy trial that will “scramble” the 2020 Democratic presidential primary by making it mandatory for several of the contenders to stay put in…
