That’s “house” not “home”, because even though Rep. Elijah Cumnings appears to claim it as his primary residence, it’s also a rental property. And Cummings’ wife, until recently, owned a very nice $900,000 home in Washington D.C., as I discussed in my article, The Biggest Democrat Rats in Baltimore.
After the burglary, the media appears to be trying to imply that President Trump is to blame.
Baltimore Police are investigating after the home of Rep. Elijah Cummings was broken into early Saturday morning.
The burglary occurred around 3:40 a.m. at his Baltimore home in the 2000 block of Madison Avenue.
At this time, police don’t know if any property was taken.
This was several hours before President Donald Trump tweeted criticizing Cummings and his district including Baltimore.
Trump has continued to criticize over the last couple of days. Cummings has remained mostly silent as Trump continued to tweet and speak about Baltimore’s high crime rate and what he called a “rodent-infest mess.”
I don’t understand what connection the media is trying to draw here. What’s the relevance of Trump’s tweets to Cummings’ burglary, especially given the timing.
Did one of Baltimore’s many Trump supporters/burglars invent a time machine and use it to break into Rep. Cummings’ home?
This isn’t the first problem with the Madison Avenue property. There had previously been a fire.
In 2015, while Rep. Cummings was in a House Committee hearing, a West Baltimore rental rowhouse owned by him caught on fire. The rowhouse turned out not to have beenregistered with the city. Cummings only began filing the paperwork after the fire called attention to it. The Democrat claims to also live in the Madison Avenue rowhouse in Druid Heights, which he also rents out to tenants.
Rep. Cummings has an estimated net worth of $1.1 million with assets potentially going as high as $2.6 million. He owned 3 homes. Beyond the two rowhouses in Baltimore, there’s a Washington D.C. Victorian house that was listed as being sold for $896,000 last year.
The Bloomingdale neighborhood where it’s located was named as one of the best places to live in the imperial city by the Washington Post. Property records appear to list Cummings’wife as the owner. That would make sense as she runs a D.C. consulting firm and his job is also in Washington D.C.
Why might Cummings and his wife prefer a Victorian home in D.C. to their Baltimore rowhouses?
In 2016, Rep. Cummings told a story about a young man living across the street from him whose car was shot at six times. That same young man took a picture of Cummings’ rowhouse when it caught on fire.
Clearly, Trump’s fault.
