The politician died last night in a hospital after a “long-term deterioration in his health.”

The head of the Oversight Committee of the US House of Representatives, Elia Cummings, died at 68. A statement from the politician’s office on Thursday, October 17, was published by journalist En Cramer on Twitter.





“At about 2.45 a.m. on Thursday, October 17, 2019, Congressman Elijah Cummings died at the Johns Hopkins Hospital due to a prolonged deterioration in health,” the statement said.

At the office, the politician added that more information will be provided later.

According to ABC NEWS, the 68-year-old Cummings was the head of the Democratic Party Oversight Committee. This committee is one of three in Congress who are currently considering the impeachment of US President Donald Trump.

Recall, a telephone conversation between the US President and his Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zelensky, which took place on July 25, caused a scandal and led to the launch of the Trump impeachment procedure.

The Senate reported that they hoped to get a bill of impeachment for the Thanksgiving holidays (the fourth Thursday of November).
