Former Trump Admin Official Shot during Carjacking, in Critical Condition

The former chief operating officer of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) for the Trump administration was a victim of a carjacking spree in Washington, D.C., on Monday.

Republican professional Mike Gill was rushed to hospital and remained in critical condition after he was shot while picking up his wife just blocks from the White House on K Street in D.C.

Erica Richardson, a spokesperson for the Gill family, told The Daily Wire:

“We can confirm that Mike Gill was the victim of the shooting at the 900 block of K Street Northwest on Monday evening and is in critical condition. Out of respect for the family, we have nothing additional to add at this time.”

The thug who shot Gill is believed to have been involved in at least two carjackings and one attempted carjacking, leaving one victim dead, according to The Washington Post.

Police said the perpetrator got inside the parked vehicle and shot the victim before fleeing the scene.

Gill was left collapsed outside the vehicle, police added.

Gill called his wife to say, “Hey, I’m downstairs.” But when she arrived, he had been shot, with his wife saying, “Oh my God, that’s my husband.”

Citing witness Yolanda Douglas, The Post said the wife “ran toward her husband and grabbed his hand. ‘What happened?’ she asked, but he did not respond.”

Douglas “saw the victim, in a dress shirt and sweater, sprawled on the pavement with one foot still in the passenger’s side of a car. His right hand was twitching as blood pooled around his head,” the Post added.

Just an hour later, the suspect tried to carjack another vehicle on Third Street NE before fatally shooting someone else on the street and making off with the car.

According to police, someone on Street knew the perpetrator and helped identify him.

The car was found in Prince George’s County, Maryland, where he then carjacked a Toyota before ordering a rideshare and carjacked that vehicle.

Around 2:30 am, a person believed to be the carjacker shot at a Maryland State Police cruiser while driving by Om D.C. 295.

The Nissan was later found abandoned in Prince George’s County.

While police officers were investigating the abandoned car, they were approached by a man with a firearm, and he was killed by police.

The District of Columbia appointed Gill, the Republican, on the city’s Board of Elections in 2016. He served three terms until 2020.

Gill was the chief operating officer of the CFTC from January 2017 to July 2019, also chief of staff to former CFTC Chairman Christopher Giancarlo, and was the Chief Regulatory Reform Officer responsible for an agency-wide review of regulations.

He was also a lawyer at Crowell & Moring and a vice president of a trade association.

Carjackings in D.C. have soared in recent years, doubling to almost 1000 in 2023.

More recently, a Democrat congressman and an FBI agent were carjacked in D.C., while multiple congressional staffers were assaulted.

Last year, three people attempted to carjack a Secret Service vehicle guarding President Joe Biden’s granddaughter.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
