The Committee on Oversight and Reform headed by Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-MD., voted along party lines to subpoena personal emails and texts used for official business by top White House aides, including Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner.
President Trump signaled his annoyance with Cummings’ committee efforts, writing in a tweet that the Democrat “spends all of his time trying to hurt innocent people through ‘Oversight.’” He also took issue with Cummings’ criticism of his administration’s Mexican border policies.
Trump went off on “brutal bully” Rep. Elijah Cummings, calling his congressional district “a disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess” that is “FAR WORSE and more dangerous” than the nation’s southern border.
“Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there,” Trump tweeted. “Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to Trump by calling Cummings a champion for civil rights and added in a tweet: “We all reject racist attacks against him and support his steadfast leadership.”
Democratic 2020 hopefuls Joe Biden, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and others defended Elijah Cummings, while others shared a video of CNN anchor Victor Blackwell, a Baltimore native, emotionally responding to President Trump’s comments.
President Trump told the absolute truth about Elijah Cummings and his district. There is not a single Democrat or liberal pundit who has disproven what Donald Trump said about Cummings and the sad state of affairs in Baltimore. All these liberal Democrats can do is attack the president with lies and with tired allegations of “racism.”
Donald Trump is the only politician who loves black people enough to tell them the truth. He is shining the light on the corrupt “leaders” who are responsible for keeping black Americans in a state of hate, blame and victimhood by constantly charging phony “racism” by whites.
Rep. Cummings has been in congress since 1996. He is an influential member of the Democratic Party, but hasn’t done anything of significance to help improve the city of Baltimore. Cummings’ district (MD 7th District) encompasses just over half of Baltimore City and is nearly 53 percent black. The district received just under $15.7 billion in grants, benefits and other assistance from the federal government in fiscal year 2018. Yet it is still crime-infested and plagued by poverty. The children of illegal aliens at the southern border live in better conditions than many kids in Baltimore.
Almost a quarter of Baltimore residents live below the poverty line, and Baltimore is one of the top cities to rely on SNAP (food stamps).
Baltimore is also one of the most violent cities in the nation, yet Elijah Cummings refuses to address this crisis. Things are so bad that activists have repeatedly pleaded for a city-wide ceasefire with “Nobody Kill Anybody” weekends.
In 2016, after the death of Freddie Gray, Obama’s justice department accused the city’s police department of racial discrimination and excessive force. The city agreed to a “consent decree” with the federal government, which has tied the hands of police so they can’t aggressively go after criminals. As a result, things got worse in Baltimore, and crime and homicides increased. In 2017, it recorded 342 murders – its highest per-capita rate ever, more than double Chicago’s, far higher than any other city of 500,000 or more residents and, a larger number of killings than in New York (14 times as populous).
To date, there have been 191 homicides in Baltimore this year (309 homicides in 2018). Baltimore joins Charlotte, North Carolina; Memphis, Tennessee; and Dallas and Philadelphia as cities with significant increases in homicides (year to date) in 2019.
Cummings has also remained silent as the city continues to be marred by corruption. He kept quiet when former Democrat Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh was forced to step down for corruption. This is the second time in a decade that a Baltimore mayor has faced corruption charges.
Elijah Cummings’ wife, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings (who is chairwoman of the Maryland Democratic Party), is facing mounting ethics questions over charity dealings. The Daily Caller obtained documents showing that Maya Rockeymoore Cummings’ charity, the Center for Global Policy Solutions (CGPS), paid over $250,000 between 2013 and 2015 to her similarly named for-profit organization, Global Policy Solutions LLC (GPS). This is like the fox guarding the henhouse!
What is behind Rep. Cumming’s investigation into Trump’s aides?
Robert Mueller’s testimony backfired on Democrats and it made Mueller look like a dupe or a person suffering from Alzheimer’s. Democrats are so blinded by Trump Derangement Syndrome they couldn’t see this wouldn’t work out for them. Since they can’t get the president on the Russian collusion hoax, they are going after the president’s children.
President Trump told the truth about Elijah Cummings and is shining the light on the serious problems in Baltimore. Black people need to realize that Elijah Cummings and Democrats don’t care about them – they only care about their votes.
It’s time to end the charade and expose the corruption in Baltimore and within the Democratic Party.
