Elijah Cummings says he will resign

Meet Congressman Elijah Cummings (Democrat)
A stunned Congressman Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Select Committee on Benghazi, agreed to resign from Congress Wednesday if committee leaks were traced back to his office.

The flustered Cummings then walked back his promise, saying only “I’d be angry.”

“Cummings agreed to resign from Congress if his office was responsible for leaking Benghazi committee testimony, then tried to walk it back,” said Ferguson.

“He is already under an Ethics investigation for similar charges. If the leaks are traced back to Cummings, he has no choice but to resign from Congress for obstructing an official investigation.”

Specifically, Cummings was asked about leaks of testimony offered to the committee with a promise it would remain confidential.

Such leaks discourage witnesses from working with the Committee, whose first two hearings had to be cancelled after Democrats intimidated witnesses, and are part of a broader effort by Democrats, led by Cummings, to obstruct yet another congressional investigation.
