Rep. Elijah Cummings passes away at age 68

A senior Democrat who was a key figure in the Donald Trump impeachment probe has died.

Elijah Cummings, 68, was pronounced dead in the early hours of Thursday morning after suffering “complications concerning longstanding health challenges,” his office announced.

The congressman, who chaired the Democratic House Oversight and Reform Committee chair, had been admitted to hospital for a “medical procedure” last month.

The Maryland representative said at the time he expected to be “back in the office in a week or so”.

He died at Baltimore’s John Hopkins Hospital at 2.45am on Thursday, his office said. No further details were given.
