McMaster Sr. was an 84-year-old retired U.S. Army officer. His son Gen. H.R. McMaster served as Trump’s national security adviser from February 2017 until March 22, when he resigned.
Surveillance video showed that Gainey failed to conduct a series of neurological evaluations of McMaster as required, the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office said. Prosecutors say she falsified documents to make it appear she had.
It wasn’t immediately known if Gainey, who worked at the facility as a contract employee, had an attorney to comment on her behalf. Phone numbers listed for her rang unanswered Thursday afternoon.READ MORE: Former NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Says He Will Not Run For Governor
The Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s office said last month that McMaster died of “blunt impact head trauma.”
Facility officials said last month that they were cooperating with investigators. They also said they contacted the Health Department and launched an internal investigation.
Gen. H.R. McMaster resigned last month as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser after Trump replaced him with former Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton. McMaster’s last official day was April 9.MORE NEWS: Candlelight Vigil Tonight For Michelle Go, Woman Pushed In Front Of Train At Times Square Subway Station
