Democrat Cummings, at center of Trump probe, dies

Senior Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings, who was at the center of the Trump impeachment inquiry, died early yesterday at the age of 68, US media reported. The veteran Baltimore representative passed away at Johns Hopkins Hospital “due to complications concerning longstanding health challenges,” reports said, quoting a statement from his office. As chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Cummings was at the center of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump and had clashed with him. Cummings had a number of clashes with the president over issues including detention of immigrants, attacks on three immigrant female US lawmakers.  He was born in 1951, one of seven children to a couple who were sharecroppers.
