Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) has died at the age of 68, his office said in a statement early Thursday.
Cummings “passed away at Gilchrist Hospice Care, a Johns Hopkins affiliate, due to complications concerning longstanding health challenges,” according to his office.
“More details will be forthcoming,” it added.
The Baltimore Sun noted that Cummings had not participated in a roll call vote in the past month, adding that his office said recently he had undergone a medical procedure.
Cummings served as chairman of the House Oversight Committee, one of the panels overseeing the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
