    CNN contributor April Ryan and CNN media reporter Brian Stelter attacked black Republican Kimberly Klacik on Saturday, implying she drove Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) to his death last month after her video exposé on rat and trash infested Baltimore neighborhoods in his Congressional District provoked a national firestorm from President Trump. Klacik, 37, was attacked by Ryan and Stelter over her announcement of her candidacy for Cummings’ vacant seat. **** Ryan wrote on Twitter, “This is the woman who created all the controversy that made @realDonaldTrump go after @RepCummings and Baltimore.

    Many Baltimore residents were “very happy” that President Trump shed light on the issues in their city, according to Republican strategist Kimberly Klacik, who is running for late Rep. Elijah Cummings' seat in Maryland. “People got on Trump’s case for basically repeating what so many people in West Baltimore said. Not just the residents, but even the former mayor, Mayor [Catherine] Pugh said the same thing: rat-infested. There's problems there,” Klacik told, “Fox & Friends First" on Tuesday. Klacik said that the sentiments expressed from Baltimore locals give her hope that she, a Republican, would have a "shot" at winning...

    The widow of late Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said on Monday that she will launch a campaign to win her husband’s seat as representative of Maryland’s 7th Congressional District. Maryland Democratic Party Chairwoman Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, 48, initially told The Baltimore Sun that she would formally announce her campaign on Tuesday, nearly a month after her husband died of cancer on Oct. 17 at age 68. Rep. Elijiah Cummings served nearly two decades in Congress and played an integral role in the early stages of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump as the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform...

    Former Rep. Kweisi Mfume said Wednesday he would be a "champion" for the district he once represented if elected to represent it again. Mfume, the former 7th District congressman, is running to succeed the man who succeeded him, Elijah Cummings. He spoke Wednesday to C4. Mfume, who left office to lead the NAACP out of a path to financial ruin, touted his credentials as "somebody at the very least who is proven, tested, trusted and most of all ready to go to work on day one." Mfume talked about his beliefs on health care, violent crime, affordable college and spurring...

    Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings is one of President Trump’s fiercest critics. Now, his wife may be in some pretty big trouble involving a “pay-to-play” scheme.” Here’s the scoop… From Fox News:House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings is fighting back against allegations that his wife’s nonprofit organization violated its tax-exempt status and posed a potential conflict-of-interest with the work of his congressional panel. Cummings statement: “These baseless claims come from a group funded by right-wing mega-donors known for their political hit jobs. I am confident that they will be exposed for what they really are – a fabricated distraction from the...

    A man seen in a viral video declining to shake Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) hand at the late Rep. Elijah Cummings's (D-Md.) funeral said the snub wasn’t based on his loyalty to Cummings as a friend. The man, identified as Bobby Rankin, told The Washington Post on Monday he blamed McConnell for denying veterans’ benefits to his brother before he died last October from cancer after being exposed to contaminated water while serving in the Marines. “When I saw Mitch McConnell, all I saw was my brother’s face,” Rankin told the Post. In a 16-second clip, Rankin, one...

    With the dishonorable Elijah Cummings dead, it probably doesn’t come as a galloping shock that his equally dishonorable trophy wife, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, plans to run for his Congressional seat. It’s stunning how members of Congress and their families treat a Congressional seat as if it’s some kind of peerage. Cummings was a member of the House of Representatives, not the House of Lords. And it is a Congressional seat, not a Barony. But for some reason, his ethically-challenged wife has the hubris to think that Cummings’ Congressional seat should be passed on to her as his surviving spouse. She...

    Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) was not dead for 24 hours before “theories” started popping up about some questionable signatures he’d recently penned on a few congressional subpoenas. BizPac Review reports that when one signature from the late congressman was compared to other documents that had been signed by him, the penmanship was hardly similar, leading many to believe one of his staffers may have forged his signature. Is it forgery? The subpoenas in question were meant to block the removal of illegal immigrants who were suffering from severe medical problems. Some have wondered whether Cummings really signed them, however, or...

    RUSH: I’m getting some emails. “Rush, you don’t seem to be taking impeachment seriously enough. I think you’re wrong. I think the House is gonna impeach Trump. It’s gonna they’re gonna do it. I think there’s gonna be a trial. I’m really worried. Why aren’t you?” I’m getting a lot of emails that have that as a basic theme. I’ll go through it again, but let me give you a very simple reason why I think they aren’t going to actually have an official vote and transfer all this to a trial in the Senate. That’s why they’re not gonna...

    Former President Barack Obama on the passing of iconic Maryland congressman, Rep. Elijah Cummings. “Michelle (Obama) and I are heartbroken over the passing of our friend, Elijah Cummings. As chairman of the House Oversight Committee, he showed us all not only the importance of checks and balances within our democracy, but also the necessity of good people stewarding it,” said the former president. “Steely yet compassionate, principled yet open to new perspectives, Chairman Cummings remained steadfast in his pursuit of truth, justice, and reconciliation. It’s a tribute to his native Baltimore that one of its own brought such character, tact,...

    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,...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) teed off against the House impeachment inquiry on Tuesday, marking his first comments since Congress returned from its two-week break. "House Democrats are finally indulging in their impeachment obsession. Full steam ahead," McConnell said during a speech from the Senate floor, adding that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had "crumbled" to the "left-wing impeachment caucus." "I don't think many of us were expecting to witness a clinic in terms of fairness or due process. But even by their own partisan standards, House Democrats have already found new ways to lower the bar," McConnell added.

    A 2-year-old boy was shot in the stomach in a "cowardly, violent act" of apparent road rage in Baltimore, authorities said. "You shot a child. Whoever you thought you were shooting at, you didn't shoot," Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said. The 2-year-old, who had been in the car with his family, was taken to the hospital in "somewhat stable condition" and is expected to survive, police said Saturday. The boy remained in the hospital Monday morning as the suspected shooter, Javon Johnson, 33, was charged, said police. It's believed the suspect's car and the victim's car were among those...

    PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, MD — Maryland state lawmaker Tawanna Gaines, a Democrat from Prince George's County, has abruptly resigned after being suspected of using money she raised for her reelection campaign for personal use. She submitted her resignation to House Speaker Adrienne Jones on Friday, Oct. 4. She now faces a federal wire fraud charge. Gaines, 67, has served in the Maryland House of Delegates since 2001 and, according to the AP, defrauded her campaign and its contributors of more than $22,000 from at least January 2015 through April 2018. "After much thought and consideration, I have decided to submit...

    Ilhan Omar praised corrupt California for moving ahead with a bill to ban private prisons. The new legislation would come into effect after the 2020 presidential election “on or after January 1, 2020” and would prohibit California’s government from “entering into or renewing a contract with a private, for-profit prison to incarcerate state inmates.” Where will they put these people? They don’t care as long as it’s not in prison. The attack on private prisons is an attack on ICE detention. This is an important step. No one should profit from putting human beings in cages — especially in a...

    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...
