Cummings recaps, speaking to reporters after Michael Cohen's testimony encouraging them to honor their journalism and report what really happened in the hearings, not what the executive branch wants people to hear. He says Congress has an important job to do, "we must be a committee with integrity. I want to be effective and efficient in everything we do and in order to be effective and efficient one of the things we've got to do is you've got to reclaim civility."
Cummings expands the small shreds of hope some have for this country with brilliance, "200 Years from now, people will be reading about this moment."
Cummings notes, "I believe (Cohen) was telling the truth...I think a light bulb went off in his head...and I think he wanted to change things...to reverse things...and I think he's remorseful..."
"This is not the end of a process, but a beginning."
Cummings says his goal is to return the country to more normalcy. In response to questions, Cummings addresses voting rights, the census, prescription drugs.
