Rep. Cummings says investigating Trump is about ‘saving our democracy’

Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland forcefully and angrily said he had absolutely no confidence in Rep. Chaffetz (R-Utah) to investigate fairly as the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. He described the investigation into President Trump’s ties to Russia a matter of “saving our democracy.” He made the comments Thursday on CNN to Wolf Blitzer.


Blitzer asked Cummings in reference to being the ranking Democrat on the oversight committee, “do you have confidence that the chairman will work together with you and pursue the issues that you’re concerned about, we’re talking about Jason Chaffetz?”


“No.” He responded loudly. “No. I do not.”


“Because we were presented with 43 items with regard to what we will be looking at over the next two years,” Cummings responded. “Democrats asked to look at the emoluments clause, and a number of everything, and on a party vote, every single thing we wanted to do, to look at, this situation with President Trump and all the conflicts of interest and other things, they voted down.”


I think basically what the Republicans have done is pretty much circled the wagon. In some instances, and I hate to say it, it hurts me to say it, but have put party first. Now there are exceptions, and I applaud [Senator] Lindsey Graham [R-S.C.] and [Senator] John McCain [R-Ariz.] and Portman and others, but we’ve got to put country first. You’ve heard me say this before, Wolf, this is bigger than Trump.


“This is about saving our Democracy,” he intoned.


“And I’ve seen that chipping away chipping away at the very fabric of that democracy,” Cummings continued. “And now we need to have a true investigation, independent folks, looking at this, who care about America. Because this is bigger than us. This is not just about now. This is about generations yet unborn. And us passing on a democracy that is even better than the one that was in existence when we were born.”




Cummings has been at the forefront of Democrats criticizing Trump for the continued leaks that imply untoward Russian involvement in the election and communications with his team. More recently, Attorney General Sessions had to recuse himself after it was discovered that he misspoke about his own interactions with a Russian ambassador.
