Elijah Cummings was kept busy to the very end of his life leading an investigation into Donald Trump before passing away at the age of 68 on Wednesday, his aides have said.
Want to know how badly the Democrats hate Donald Trump? They hate him with such intensity that as House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings was on his death bed in the hospital, his one constant thought was not for friends or family, for love or forgiveness, and not even for the afterlife that he was about to be propelling into. Elijah Cummings on his death bed could only think of destroying Donald Trump, and as he took his last breath on this earth, he was consumed with hatred.
“Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.” 1 John 3:15 (KJV)
So if you thought that the Democrats had any intention of any kind of stopping their persecution of Donald Trump should impeachment fail to remove him from office, you are sorely mistaken. The Democrats will not rest until they have either consumed Donald Trump in their hatred or consumed themselves in the process. But either way, it’s a fight to the death. The only question is, who dies first? This is America in 2019.
Elijah Cummings ‘signed subpoenas from his hospital bed’ for Trump impeachment before his death
FROM THE INDEPENDENT UK: The chairman of the House Oversight Committee was signing subpoenas from his hospital bed, one aide told the New York Times. He also helped lead a Democratic caucus conference call. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi described Mr Cummings as a “north star” who spoke with “unsurpassed clarity and moral integrity” on the House floor.
Ms Pelosi, who grew up in the city Mr Cummings represented, said he was her “brother in Baltimore” during a press conference on Thursday, adding: “We’ve all lost a friend … I’m devastated by the loss.”
Despite not having participated in a roll call vote since September, the late congressman was continuing to spearhead the oversight committee’s impeachment inquiry into Mr Trump along with two other House committees handling the investigation.
He has sparred with Mr Trump since the president took office, condemning the humanitarian crisis on the US-Mexico border during a fiery speech and decrying his attempts to ban residents of Muslim-majority nations from entering the country as “unconstitutional” and “un-American”.
Cummings was active until the end, an aide tells me. He signed subpoenas from his hospital bed and as recently as Friday helped lead a Democratic caucus conference call. https://t.co/2qkxi4Em7O

Donald Trump consistently attacked Mr Cummings online, calling the congressman a “racist” then describing his majority-black district as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” in which “no human being” would wish to live.
Elijah Cummings served 12-terms representing the 7th District of Maryland, which includes parts of Baltimore. The president tweeted his “warmest condolences” to Mr Cummings’ family and friends, writing: “I got to see first hand the strength, passion and wisdom of this highly respected political leader.”
He added: “His work and voice on so many fronts will be very hard, if not impossible, to replace!” READ MORE
