and you could read Cohen's lips say "No that's OK" and he passed on bringing his comment up.

27. Rep. Cummings took down the whole lot of

Republicans with his closing statement without even mentioning them.

He did correct Jordan that this was the third heaing, not the first. The first was on drugs, a young girl died because they could not afford $333 a month for her insulan.

33. loved how he shut that ridiculous Mark Meadows up when he tried repeatedly to

interrupt and accuse Ms. Tlaib of calling him a racist. He probably is, but the way he spoke to her was quite condescending and holier-than-thou. The way he & the couple other GOP guys defended the Idiot and tried to lambast Cohen to discredit him was laughable, but very sad to see their highly misplaced loyalty to this fake president. They will live to regret it.

41. Here's the video



Chairman Cummings put up with a lot of shit, from the time he gaveled this meeting to order until he closed it.
I watched it.
He kept his composure, he showed real leadership. Each and every RepubliCON showed his/her butt in their five minutes of time during this hearing. Through the whole day, Chairman Cummings showed good judgement (restraint, where necessary; even-handedness where appropriate), and rose above the partisan sniping.

THANK YOU, Elijah Cummings!

66. Everyone who participated got their fair time.

The Repubs showed their usual bias toward opposition witnesses and dislike for Democrats.

Michael Cohen got to give his statements to the American public.

The Democrats all asked good questions and got in more than a few zingers at the Repugs.

You are right, sir. History was made today and is the beginning of flood of light on the tRump presidency. Mueller will bring the floodlights but you, Mr. Cummings, opened the door. We owe you our eternal gratitude.

Please go home tonight and get some rest. We know you are tired and sick with a cold. Take care of yourself! Put your feet up, loosen your tie and relax. You deserve it!

84. K&R for this smart, tough old bird! I love him!

And he was sick as hell today with a cold (I think I have the same chest cold), and has had really rough health problems, yet he persists.

93. He is TOUGH. He needs a walker just to move around, his painful arthritis has deformed his hands.

He has a horrible, rattling cough. He said he had a bad cold today.

And yet, he stayed on top of the Republican vipers all 9.5 hours today, then delivered a closing speech so powerful that it brought people to tears.

Mad props to this superhero. I hope to dear God he is with us for many more years to come.

Tough as nails, but still sweet.

87. I love when Jim Jordan was having his meltdown about his remaining time

and bullying and interrupting Cohen, so he couldn't finish answering the question Jordan had asked, and Elijah Cummings said something like, "Listen up! The member's time is up. Mr. Cohen, you can finish answering."



It was like a teacher putting a little shit stirring student in his place.

94. Yep, the Repigs tried to turn this into a circus, but he didn't let them.

He maintained decorum while making them look like the corrupt Trump supplicants that they are.

95. THIS is why it's important for Democrats to control congress even if it means supporting some

conservative leaning types here and there in red districts.

because those members help us get majority which in turn means people like Elijah Cummings have more control and say over the agenda.

104. A boss

And not in a negative way. A man who was a pure professional, did his JOB....with strength and resolve. Shut down clownish behavior and moved things forward...you know...like a professional.

IMO the GOP is filled, FILLED with amateurs. Tea Party clowns and no-nothing buffoons raised at the alter of Faux news...all grown up and elected to run the country. We need more Pros like Elijah Cummings.

106. Trump wouldn't think so

but Cummings comes from a much better place than him. You can see where a good part of Cummings’ strength comes from when you read his mother’s obituary. She died last year:
