For this week's GC profile, I spoke with de Blasio's counsel, @lipak23 , about pandemic-related closures, police reform, and the election — as well as a lesson shared with him by the late Rep. Elijah Cummings.

I’m thinking today of the words of Rep. Elijah Cummings. At a hearing for a bill to restore voting rights, he said, “When we’re dancing with the angels, the question will be asked: What did we do to make sure we kept our democracy intact?” What will you do over the next 7 days?

We lost a great American icon a year ago today. Rep. Elijah Cummings never stopped pushing our nation to be better. We miss him and his leadership today more than ever.

Republican Kimberly Klacik has outraised Democratic Rep. Kweisi Mfume in a deeply blue Maryland district. Mfume received about 74% of the vote to fill the House vacancy created by the death of Elijah Cummings.

"Elijah felt so urgently about the need to warn people about the danger of Donald Trump." Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, the widow of Rep. Elijah Cummings, joins @ABCNewsLive  to discuss her late husband, the upcoming presidential election and more.

1) The late Supreme Court Justice RuthBader Ginsburg will lie in state in Statuary Hall of the Capitol today This is similar to the late Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) who lay in state in Statuary Hall after his death last fall.

“He spent basically the last year of his life writing this book, in part to warn the American people that Donald Trump absolutely should not get a second term in office.” - Maya Rockeymoore Cummings on her late husband, Rep. Elijah Cummings’ autobiography “We’re better than this”

Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, the widow of Rep. Elijah Cummings, says President Trump’s attacks on the congressman and the city of Baltimore “hurt Elijah deeply.” “I think it facilitated his death.”

2) This is similar to the late Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) who lay in state in Statuary Hall after his death last fall. While Ginsburg will not lie in repose in the Capitol Rotunda, she will become the first woman to ever lie in state anywhere in the U.S. Capitol.

The late U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings felt “pure pain” from President Donald Trump’s tweets about Baltimore, and the Maryland Democrat wrote “I could feel the attack to my core,” in a memoir that is being published posthumously.

President Trump tweeted that Rep. Elijah Cummings’ district is a “rodent infested mess” where “no human being would want to live.” It’s @VictorBlackwell’s home district. “When he tweets about infestation, it's about black and brown people,” Blackwell says.

Rep. Elijah Cummings: "I’m begging the American people to pay attention to what is going on. Because if you want to have a democracy intact for your children and your children’s children and generations yet unborn, we have got to guard this moment."

Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA......

America lost a giant with the passing of Rep. Elijah Cummings, a man of principle who championed truth, justice and kindness. He fiercely loved his country and the people he served. Rest In Peace, my friend.

It’s going to be difficult to sleep tonight & I know for many nights to come. My dear friend Rep. Elijah Cummings is gone. I’m going to miss him. He called me his mentor, but I considered him the finest public policymaker I ever worked with. Love you forever! #ElijahCummings 

I am in Baltimore. Rep. Elijah Cummings’ district. I spent all day speaking with dozens of people who live in Rep. Cummings’ district. Some have lived here +60 years. I learned so much. Before continuing, ask yourself: Do you want to know the truth? Here it is… *thread @TPUSA *

When President @realDonaldTrump  spends more time and energy denouncing Rep. Elijah Cummings and Baltimore than he does denouncing right-wing extremists who often traffic in hate and white nationalism, it shows his priorities are un-American and way off balance.
