Georgia Republican files for divorce from blonde bombshell oncologist wife who teases 'he will not be forthcoming' about how their marriage REALLY unraveled after 12 years together raising seven children

McCormick's wife texted Daily Mail: 'I'm sure that he will not be forthcoming' Hill insiders say he has often been seen acting overly friendly toward a colleague

After 12 years of marriage and less than two years into his congressional career,  Georgia Republican Rep. Rich McCormick has filed for divorce from his oncologist wife Dr. Debra Miller.

The case was filed by McCormick on May 3. A mutual restraining order was also filed, DailyMail.com reported first.

McCormick and Miller, his second wife, share seven children and live in Suwanee, Georgia. When approached about the reasoning for the divorce, Miller texted DailyMail.com: 'I'm sure that he will not be forthcoming.'

Capitol Hill insiders say McCormick has often been seen acting overly friendly toward a female Republican member of the House.

One GOP member told DailyMail.com they had seen McCormick and the colleague 'holding hands under the table' at the weekly Republican Study Committee lunch within the last three to four months and had seen him 'grab the small of her back' on the House floor during votes.

Two eyewitnesses say they have seen he and the colleague holding hands, with one witnessing it as the pair were leaving votes.

Asked if the divorce involved an alleged affair he may have had with a colleague, his soon-to-be ex-wife Miller replied: 'You should ask Rich and his colleague.'

A third witness told DailyMail.com they had seen the female colleague holding on to the arm of McCormick while walking out of the Longworth Office building late at night.

Asked about the cozy behavior and the divorce, a McCormick spokesperson told DailyMail.com: 'Congressman McCormick and Dr. Miller have been separated for quite some time. He has kept that private and will continue to keep his personal life out of the media spotlight.'

They were pictured together as recently as over the Christmas holiday.

McCormick's Facebook account says the pair were married on August 16, 2011.

McCormick spent over 20 years as a pilot in both the Marine Corps and the Navy and was also an emergency room physician in Georgia's Gwinnett Medical Center.

He is in his first term in Congress, having joined in January 2023. He ran unsuccessfully for the Georgia's 7th District in 2020 against Democrat Carolyn Bordeaux.

In November McCormick was the lead author of a censure resolution for Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., for "promoting false narratives regarding the October 7, 2023 Hamas attack on Israel and for calling for the destruction of the state of Israel.'

Shortly after that, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., who had also introduced a Tlaib censure that was not successful, accused McCormick of getting physically aggressive with her.

Sources told CNN that in a private meeting with House Speaker Mike Johnson in December, Greene claimed her male colleague 'grabbed her by the shoulders and shook her' and asked the Speaker to address the issue.

'I understand why there would be a lot of raw emotions following the censure vote given that her censure was tabled and mine passed. My intention was to encourage Rep. Greene by making a friendly gesture,' said McCormick.

He denied getting physically aggressive with her.
