Trey Gowdy’s office had no official statement but his top aide, Mandy
Gonsales, said that the committee isn’t happy with the circumstances of
McGill’s death or the fact that his own doctor was summoned to
pronounce. Abedin says she called the private doctor because she hoped
he could save her friend.
There will be no autopsy on the body, which will be cremated before
sunset in accordance with his religion. McGill is the single son of
deceased parents and has no family. No services are planned.
Just days after being summoned to appear before Trey Gowdy’s
congressional committee to testify about Hillary Clinton’s email server,
one of her aides was found dead at home of “natural causes.”
Johnston Wilson McGill, 34, was pronounced dead on his couch by a
private doctor after suffering an apparent heart attack. A spokesman for
Clinton’s former campaign said that Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy
campaign coordinator, found McGill when she stopped by for coffee to
discuss Clinton’s plans for a run for Mayor of New York.
Abedin told police in a statement that McGill suffered from an
abnormal heart arhythmia and that his doctor had always said a sudden
and massive cardiac event was a possibility. She also told her publicist
to make sure that the whole world knew that he was planning to
cooperate with the congressional panel.
