UNITED STATES−On Friday, February 21, U.S. Department of Homeland Security whistleblower from the Barack Obama administration, Phillip Haney, was found dead in Amador County, 40 miles east of Sacramento, California.
“On February 21, 2020 at approximately 1012 hours, deputies and detectives responded to the area of highway 124 and Highway 16 in Plymouth to the report of a male subject on the ground with a gunshot wound. Upon their arrival, they located and identified 66-year-old Phillip Haney who was deceased and appeared to have suffered a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound. A firearm was located next to Haney and his vehicle. The investigation is active and ongoing. No further details will be released at this time,” said Martin A. Ryan, Amador County Sheriff and County Coroner.
According to the Washington Examiner, Haney indicated in his testimony that several attacks in the U.S. could have been prevented if some of those files had not been deleted.
Haney was a 15-year veteran who retired in 2015. He studied the Arabic culture and language. Haney was a founding member at DHS in 2002, where he previously worked as a scientist in the Middle East and in Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as an agriculture officer. Following his service as a CBP officer, he was promoted to the Advanced Targeting Team specializing in Islamic Theology and the strategy and tactics of the global Islamic movement
In June 2016, Haney testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he alleged that the Obama-era DHS ordered him to delete hundreds of files of associates of Islamic terrorist groups.
Phil Haney was a friend & patriot. He was a target because of all he knew of Islamic terrorist coverups. He insured his life by archiving data that incriminated the highest levels of the Obama administration. Phil Haney didn’t kill himself. RIP, Phil. https://t.co/pvy7MflFwc
