Gov. Wolf orders US, commonwealth flags to half-staff to honor Rep. Elijah Cummings

Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings said Sunday that once his party retakes control of the House, he hopes President Donald Trump's estranged former attorney Michael Cohen will testify before Congress.

HARRISBURG — Gov. Tom Wolf ordered Thursday the United States and commonwealth flags on all state facilities, public buildings and grounds fly at half-staff to honor Rep. Elijah Cummings, who passed away at the age of 68.

“Rep. Cummings was a trailblazer, a life-long advocate for fairness and civil rights, and a fearless defender of our democracy,” said Gov. Wolf. “Our prayers are with his family, friends, and colleagues. He will be sorely missed.”

The flags shall be lowered until sunset Friday, October 18. All Pennsylvanians are invited to participate in this tribute.
