Items from Rep. Cummings office donated to Howard University

BALTIMORE (AP) — The widow of U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings says photographs, letters and other papers from his Capitol Hill office are being donated to his alma mater.

The Baltimore Sun reports the items must first undergo a painstaking security review to determine what can be given to Howard University, because Cummings chaired the House Oversight and Reform Committee, which is involved in the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.

Maya Rockeymoore Cummings said the House Clerk told her that his personal papers can be donated with no problem after a review to make sure no sensitive committee papers are included without proper authorization.

Rockeymoore Cummings is among candidates running in next year’s elections to succeed Cummings, who died last month.
