Why wait until Benghazi whistleblowers Mark Thompson, Gregory Hicks and Eric Nordstrom testify before the House Oversight Committee? Rep. Elijah Cummings was ready to call b.s. before they even had a chance to speak on Wednesday.

Oh, come on. Breathing while conservative qualifies you for that.

Video here:

Cummings started off his statement with a shoutout … to “public employees.”

He insisted he was glad to have the whistleblowers at the hearing and called them “important.”


And whistleblower protection? Cummings is on it!


But wait … there’s more.


Cummings went after Fox News, all sneaky-like, natch.

Politicizer, heal thyself.

And a boom-worthy rebuttal from Rep. Darrell Issa:

Heckuva job, Cummings!



What difference does it make? Eric Nordstrom fights back tears during opening Benghazi statement: ‘It matters’

Here we go: Backlash against Benghazi whistleblowers is underway

    This Cummings guy, he’s a Libertarian, right? 😉

    • TocksNedlog

      If by “Libertarian” you mean that he supports the right of congressmen to live within a fairyland of their own devising, then Yes.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      Only if you define Libertarian as “rump-sniffing, lap dog, toady” for the Democrat Party.

        Ya~ amazing how far these “elected” officials will go, no matter how wrong or disgusting they are.

        • Elaine

          “Elected” by voters who will never bite the hand that feeds them. Term limits, please?

    • Billie Slash

      He’s been “liberated” of his brain.

    Clearly closed minded, protect my party`s @ss at all cost Cummings (even if he must smeardiscredit victims) is earning his crony crown today. #Shameful

      “I’ll come out shooting before I actually HEAR anything!” Yep, that’s a hired gun, alright. I guess his soul was for sale.

      • Red Fred

        I don’t think even the devil wants that soul.

  • Clete Torres

    What kind of LIV actually thinks this fool was a good choice?

    Seriously. This guy ranks right up there with Hank ‘Guam will capsize’ Johnson.

      He must come from a Nacy Pelosi like district where no matter what wholly idiotic thing he utters, he has no chance of being unseated. In case of administration emergency, break glass, have Rep. Cummings spew inconsistent, illogical bile all over the place.

      • mdtljt

        He’s a DIM from Maryland…that pretty much says it all

  • NRPax

    Hopefully, the whistleblowers beat this man down with the Trout of Truth before the day is over.

    • Clete Torres

      “Trout of Truth.” Classic.

      If only I could up-vote this more than once.

  • truckee22

    Its funny and sad at the same time watching the attempts by the left to make this story go away. They are seriously worried that this could smear their Dear Leader and are doing everything in their power to make it go away. I pray that the truth comes out, no matter what it is or the outcome. The public deserves to hear the truth.

    *Apologies to my Mom in advance because I don’t feel like being dignified right now*. This ass hat would be crapping himself if this was under Bush’s presidency and offering up bj’s from DC’s finest call girls to Eric Nordstrom if he was whistle blowing on Bush. Rep Cummings just STFU and listen to the testimony already. Not once did anyone on this committee treat Hilary with such contempt and disgust before she even opened her damn mouth.
    I may need to pick up smoking again before this is over….or start enjoying Jack or Johnny.

  • TocksNedlog

    Garbage voted in, garbage spews out.

  • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

    Too bad the Benghazi 4 weren’t hoodie-wearing punks carrying Skittles and Iced Ted. Maybe Cummings would give a shiits then.

  • I M Free

    whistle blowers are far more credible this this traditional politician rep. cummings. agree?

  • radicallyalyssa

    Cummings is a f*cking moron. Screw him for already discrediting them before they even get to speak.

  • http://www.facebook.com/CRChilders98 C.r. Childers

    Elijah Cummings – Useful idiot.

    • neoface

      I hope it back fires on him!!!

      • http://twitter.com/HotRodFan899 Gary Freeman

        Hopefully real Americans remember this bastards attempt to help cover up Benghazi when he’s up for reelection.

          This fella won 76.5% of the vote in the general election. My guess is he manages to win again in 2014…

    • IBXNJ

      Elijah Cummings sure does know how to make friends and influence people!!

  • TJ

    Well we now know who got the “new” talking points and what marching orders they where.

  • tops116

    Yertle the turtle there could’ve at least waited to hear some testimony before denouncing it and acting like a jackass.

  • neoface

    Inept black politician protecting another inept politician. Reversed racism! If this was Bush he would want his head. Enough Cummings, put this country before your personal need for a half black person to be in power because you can never be a president.

    Nothing, absolutely will come from this. Awhile back I was admonished here at Twitchy for stating this, “Obama could get on a stage, kill a born alive baby (cough, cough sack of cells) eat it and lefties would still defend him.” This is WHAT THEY ARE!

    Peaceful non compliance to these tyrants is the only viable solution left to us. Let them make the next move………then it gets really interesting. Do you think anything will change if the Republicans could get absolute control of all 3 divisions of the federal government? They would be 2/3 RINO, aka statists in Republican suits.

    Sessions was right, it is time to shut them down. They want money, let them print it like they are doing now. Hey, it will only make the inevitable collapse come that much sooner. We are fighting not just the government, but the media, the universities, the high schools, the grade schools, etc, et al. We have been infiltrated by statists throughout all facets of the culture. They are swamping the US with 3rd world people that would vote statist to get a pittance. That is what we are up against. The useful idiots do not know that socialist/fascists use the state to keep the wealth, they keep using the communist rhetoric of fair share, etc. This is not going to end well, prepare and remember, let them start it.

      …ummmmm… khazarian plutocrats pushing their agenda for decades…

  • 17_woods

    How does one get as stupid as Cummings in one life time?

    • therantinggeek

      Ugh. I’d rather not think about it. It’ll give me a headache. :/

    • https://twitter.com/davidjkramer DavidKramer

      Practice, lots of practice. It is not stupidity by the way. This is a concerted effort. They all had their parts to play. One of the Wisconsin traitors is now blathering about what we can do in the future to train people better. His office is getting an email shortly from me. Let me repeat, this is not stupidity, they are doing what they are doing for the sole purpose of facilitating the totalitarian system they envision.

  • golftilidrop

    He should have shown up with a obama sticker on his forehead.

  • bkyguy

    wouldn’t it be sweet if the start of the testimony was “go fuck yourself”

  • Bui van vat

    They’re obviously racist dog-whistleblowers.

  • BAW

    I’m actually encouraged to realize that Rep. Cummings is the lead Democrat on the committee. I’m sure he’ll do what he can. But I’ve never seen he show the kind of talent a Democrat like Barney Franks had for obstructing or distorting the truth. And while he’ll attack, I can’t see him doing the kind of damage to the messenger that some Democrats are so good at.

  • ceyanne

    It is beyond embarrassing any more to admit being from/living in MD. Between Cummings & O’Malley and the rest of the state’s libbies, just ugh.

  • Man of Little Means

    They make this word “Whistle Blower ” sound bad. Maybe they should be “Un documented and and unwanted witnesses” against the perpetrator. Sorta like an undocumented democrat voter

  • copperpeony

    Cummings needs to protect his “mob bosses”. Hate this man.

  • Man of Little Means

    Supporting Military leaders has never been a foregone issue with this administration but now that they have other witnesses all of a sudden everything the military said was 100% right.

  • Jack Deth

    Jim Gerahty forgot one. And it’s a staple!!

    I call “RacistTravestyMockery!”!

    And the ugly Pillsbury Dum Bass will Triple Dog Dare anyone to testify!!!

  • http://twitter.com/HotRodFan899 Gary Freeman

    Cummings, helping cover up Benghazi anyway he can. We can’t let those accountable be held accountable, now can we?

  • Guest

    Cummings could probably make a living as a petty criminal in the real world.
    Are he and Hippo Jackson-Lee related, by any chance.

  • Bill Board

    Cummings said “he was glad to have the important witnesses there” but after shooting off his mouth, he promptly leaves the hearing. Evidently, he is a liar as well.

  • answer1776

    Since when are Fox News reports on Benghazi “an all-out media campaign”?

  • Barack Hussein Sharpton

    Folks, I’ll let MessNBC star and contributor to “The Grio”, Goldie Taylor tell you what exactly is going on with Cummings:

    My grandmother never used words like that, but she certainly believed in “circling the wagons (around people that looked like her, i.e.,Black ones).”

    What choice do we have, after all? Many believe that speaking negatively about the Obama administration’s policies will weaken his ability to win re-election and plays into the hands of his GOP opponents. Who can he depend on if we will not stand up for him? Certainly not the so-called “professional left”. White progressives have made their dissatisfaction widely known. If we don’t have his back, who will?

    Grandma Alice would say, “He ain’t perfect, but he’s ours (i.e., one of us Blacks).”

    the Obama adm. does nothing but LIE .they have from day one , thats because he and his cronies think everyone is stupid

  • Jeremy

    Elijah Cummings current occupation Race Baiting Congressman and Obama ass kisser

  • anjullyn

    I watched the whole hearing and the Repubs wiped the floor with the Dems. All the Dems did was read talking points for 4 min. and ask a stupid question for the last min. Repubs were asking ?’s right out the gate and were EXTREMELY well prepared unlike the Dems. Mr. Hicks, Mr. Thompson, and Mr. Nordstrom made me proud to be an American as they came forward at great risk to their careers. Shame on the Dems, shame on Clinton and Obama.
