Trump Administration Official In Critical Condition After DC Shooting


The nation’s capital has been under Democratic Party rule for generations, and the rampant crime across D.C. has been a clear result of that leftist leadership.

Now, an official who served in the Trump White House is recovering from serious injuries after he was gunned down during a recent carjacking spree.

According to the Daily Wire:

An accomplished Republican professional who served as chief operating officer of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) during the Donald Trump administration was among those shot in a vicious carjacking spree in Washington, D.C., on Monday night, one that ended in police killing the perpetrator in Maryland early Tuesday morning.

Mike Gill is in a hospital in critical condition after being shot while picking up his wife, an education lawyer, blocks from the White House on K Street in downtown D.C. at 5:45pm.

“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,” Erica Richardson, a spokesperson for the Gill family, said in a statement to The Daily Wire.
Of course, Gill is among the many victims of senseless violence in D.C.

Even the Biden adminstration has taken notice of the crime wave, perhaps because of its proximity or possibly in an effort to convince gullible voters that the Democratic Party is finally taking action against lawlessness.

Breitbart recently provided some context regarding the DOJ’s cynical plan to address D.C. crime:

The timing of the initiative suggests the Biden administration recognizes soaring crime as a political vulnerability for the Democrat party.

Crime in the Democrat-controlled city spiked in 2023, according to police department data:

  • Homicides: Up 35 percent
  • Robberies: Up 67 percent
  • Violent Crime: Up 39 percent
  • Motor Vehicle Theft: Up 82 percent

In response, Biden’s DOJ will allocate additional federal prosecutors, agents, analysts, and other resources to tamp down the crime, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced in a press release Friday. “This surge in law enforcement resources will build on the Department’s efforts to target the individuals and organizations that are driving violent crime in the nation’s capital,” he said.

Residents in the District blame Biden-appointed U.S. attorney Matthew Graves for the crime surge. Graves refused to prosecute 67 percent of those arrested who would have beenput on trial in the D.C. Superior Court, according to 2022 District statistics. In 2023, he did not prosecute 56 percent of those arrested.

Here’s some local news coverage of the recent spree:
