In recent months, Rep. Elijah Cummings made clear he felt that America and its democracy was at a crossroads.
“I’m begging the American people to pay attention to what is going on. Because if you want to have a democracy intact for your children, and your children’s children, and generations yet unborn we’ve got to guard this moment…this is our watch,” Cummings said in July, speaking after the former special counsel Robert Mueller testified to Congress.
“It’s not about like the President, it’s about loving democracy,” he added.
As Chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Cummings repeatedly shone a spotlight on the inner workings of the White House.
