Elijah Cummings death: Senior Democrat at centre of Trump impeachment probe dies, aged 68
Baltimore congressman’s investigations into president had made him target of racist tirade
Elijah Cummings, 68, was pronounced dead in the early hours of Thursday morning after suffering “complications concerning longstanding health challenges,” his office announced.
The congressman, who chaired the Democratic House Oversight and Reform Committee chair, had been admitted to hospital for a “medical procedure” last month.

Bummer. I had not heard anything about him being very ill, much less on his death bed, so this comes as a very big chunk of very bad news all at once. Damn. Condolences to Elijah’s family.

It says longstanding health challenges. Not that I’m in the loop or anything, but I hadn’t heard he was in poor health.

Trump praises Elijah Cummings ‘strength, passion and wisdom’ months after taunting him
Donald Trump has issued a tribute to Elijah Cummings, praising the late congressman for his “strength, passion and wisdom” just months after the president attacked the man’s Baltimore district as “rat infested” and taunted him over a break-in at his home.
“My warmest condolences to the family and many friends of Congressman Elijah Cummings,” Mr 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!”

There’s no way in HELL that Cheeto wrote that tweet. Nor was it likely that any of the other racist tools remaining in his Fraudministration wrote it. My guess would be Ivanka.
As for Mr. Cummings…. his closing statements in the Michael Cohen hearings… though it wasn’t his official last act in Congress… could probably be considered a “symbolic” good note to go out on…..
