    Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, the widow of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), on Thursday said in a statement that her late husband “worked until his last breath.” “Congressman Cummings was an honorable man who proudly served his district and the nation with dignity, integrity, compassion and humility. He worked until his last breath because he believed our democracy was the highest and best expression of our collective humanity and that our nation’s diversity was our promise, not our problem,” she said. “It’s been an honor to walk by his side on this incredible journey. I loved him deeply and will miss him...

    A careful monitoring of the media today confirms that Rep. Cummings died from "complications arising from long-standing ill health." As you wouldn't accept that as a cause of death for a loved one, as a life insurance underwriter would never accept those words to approve a payout, and as a police detective would never accept those inappropriate and vague words from a coroner... What do they mean? "complications arising from long-standing ill health." Like Napoleon? Al Capone? Lenin? Lincoln? Just wondering. Our revered hero who did everything - made so many friends, spoke out, was so corurageous, crossed the aisle,...

    With the passing of Congressman Elijah Cummings, I wonder whatever happened to Lois Lerner and how conservative groups like True The Vote were targeted and maligned by the IRS and People like Cummings. Did True The Vote, and other conservative non-profits, ever get the vindication they deserved? And did Lois Lerner have a dime of her ridiculous government pension taken from her following the investigations she unleashed on conservative non-profits? Just wondering.

    Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are calling on their Democratic colleagues to provide more details about a series of trips taken to Mexico while staff were touring border detention facilities, amid reports that at least one Democrat has been involved in “coaching” migrants there on how to exploit U.S. immigration law. In a letter to Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., obtained by Fox News, ranking member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said there were at least two committee staff trips into Mexico in August — one of which required Border Patrol agents to provide a special escort back into the U.S. “Although...

    President Trump went after purported congressional watchdog Elijah Cummings recently, slamming the Democrat congressman for failing to improve his troubled Baltimore, Maryland, district despite the inflow of billions of dollars in federal aid during and in the years leading up to Trump’s administration. Cummings came to the attention of conservatives as he zealously defended the IRS throughout the Lois Lerner saga. Lerner is the corrupt IRS tax-exempt division executive who engineered the tax agency’s targeting of conservative nonprofits during the Obama administration. Cummings also apparently conspired with Lerner to sabotage True the Vote, a leading grassroots electoral integrity group. In...

    Former NFL Linebacker and businessman Jack Brewer and Trump. President Trump’s criticism of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) over the living conditions in Baltimore were reportedly brought up at the request of former NFL linebacker Jack Brewer.

I asked him to do that three weeks ago and he did it," the former NFL linebacker said on Fox Nation’s “Deep Dive.” Brewer explained he was motivated to reach out to Trump after a visit to Baltimore. “I'm seeing these kids that...

    Maryland Democratic Party Chair Maya Cummings, the wife of House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), reached out on Twitter over the weekend for help identifying a suspect in a break-in at the couple's house last month. “Has anyone in the Twitterverse ever seen the symbol on this hat? It was the only distinguishing feature of the man who recently broke into our home. I’m showing it to you to crowdsource the logo. Please let me know if you’ve seen it (or him) before,” Cummings tweeted on Saturday. The following day she crowdsourced information on the images by posting an...

    Last week, Townhall covered MAGA supporter Scott Presler's call to action in Baltimore by inviting "Americans to help Americans" and go clean up neighborhoods in Charm City. Presler at first kept secret when the event would occur for fear of retaliation from the far-left like Antifa. But, on Saturday, Presler and 100 other citizens from all over the country traveled to West Baltimore for the massive trash clean up. By all measures, it was hugely successful. However, on Monday, the Baltimore Sun's editorial board ran an op-ed, trashing Presler and his group saying they only did the event to embarrass Baltimore...

    BALTIMORE — A new audit ordered amid the controversy about former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh's book deals makes no mention that her financial dealings touched the city's Children and Youth Fund. The fund is managed by a charity that took donations and then bought Pugh's books. **SNIP** To date, about $36 million has been allocated to the fund, but just $9.6 million has gone out of the fund to organizations serving children and youth. The city pays Associated Black Charities, which is headed by Diane Bell McKoy, to manage the fund. The audit was ordered in the spring after ABC...

    BALTIMORE — Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings on Saturday invited President Donald Trump and other Americans to Baltimore, taking the high road after a barrage of presidential tweets disparaging the black-majority city and its long-serving Democratic congressman. Cummings made his first public remarks after a week of Trump's name-calling and criticism during the opening of a neighborhood park near his home. He called Baltimore "a great community." He reminded those gathered at the park in Druid Heights of the city's history, home to the late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and, more recently, the author Ta-Nehisi Coats. At 68, and using...

    BALTIMORE, MD — When a man broke into the building in the middle of the night where U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings and his wife live, the couple did not call 911 right away. After the intruder got in, they took action. Hours later, the congressman's wife, Maya Rockeymoore, contacted authorities. Two exterior doors lead to the residential part of the apartment building where the couple lives on the first and second floor in the 2000 block of Madison Avenue, according to the police report. Around 3:40 a.m. on Saturday, July 27, they were alerted by a cell phone application connected...

    A watchdog group has filed a complaint with the IRS for the mishandling of a non-profit organization run by Rep. Elijah Cummings’ wife, Maya according to One America News’ Jack Posobiec. The findings are shocking. According to the report, the nonprofit group was “cutting deals” with special interest groups directly tied to Cummings’ House Oversight Committee. Maya runs her non-profit “Global Policy Solutions” along with a separate for-profit venture. The watchdog alleges her group “received $6.2 million in grants from various corporate backers including Google, JP Morgan, Prudential & Johnson and Johnson.” The complaint also highlighted that Mrs. Cummings’ separate...
