José Domingo Molina Gómez (1896–1969) was the Commander and Chief of the Argentine Army who appears to have temporarily taken "the reins of Government" on September 19, 1955. This was following the Revolución Libertadora which had begun on September 16, 1955. Eduardo Lonardi would eventually be recognized as the de facto President of Argentina on September 23, 1955.
Born in San Fernando del Valle de Catamarca on September 26, 1896, was the son of Daniel Molina Avellaneda and Melitona Gómez. In his early career, José Domingo married Delina del Carmen Botana in Choya, Santiago del Estero.
A military junta composed of general José Domingo Molina and other military officers, was created with Molina at "the reins of Government". The next morning Perón asked for asylum in Paraguay, leaving the government in the hands of the military junta. Eduardo Lonardi would eventually be recognized as the de facto President of Argentina on September 23, 1955.
He died in Buenos Aires in 1969.
