This was Elijah Cummings (D-MD) five days ago…

This was Elijah Cummings yesterday while saying it wasn’t necessary to go forward with a contempt hearing for Eric Holder, who’s withholding documents which might help to identify who’s behind Fast and Furious…

House Oversight Committee ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) on Tuesday defended Attorney General Eric Holder’s conduct with regard to the Fast and Furious operation, ahead of a critical meeting between Holder and Republicans considering finding him in contempt of Congress.
“I think Eric Holder has acted honorably, he’s done everything he could to allow us to do our job, which is to investigate this matter,” Cummings said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “When Eric Holder found out about [the gun-walking] tactics, he immediately stopped it.”

And here was Elijah Cummings on CNN this morning talking about Fast and Furious and the impasse between Holder and the congressional committee investigating Fast and Furious…

He won’t rest until he finds out who’s responsible, but the attempts by Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee to do just that are an effort to embarrass the president.

Just imagine what kind of investigation into Fast and Furious there would be if Cummings was the chair of that committee.
