Philip Haney, the former DHS official who blew the whistle on the Obama Administration, has been found murdered, with a gunshot would to his chest, in California.
As The Washington Examiner reports:
Philip Haney, a former Department of Homeland Security official during the Obama administration who blew the whistle on his own agency, was found dead Friday with a gunshot wound about 40 miles east of Sacramento, California.The Amador County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to the Washington Examiner that deputies and detectives responded to reports Friday morning at 10:12 a.m. of a male subject on the ground with a gunshot wound in the area of Highway 124 and Highway 16 in Plymouth, California.
“Upon their arrival, they located and identified 66-year-old Philip 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. This investigation is active and ongoing. No further details will be released at this time,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
The Amador County Sheriff’s Office would not respond to any further questions.
As a whistleblower, Haney testified that Obama’s DHS ordered him to delete hundreds of files of individuals connected to radical Islamic terrorist groups.
The police have revealed no new details about the crime, including whether or not they currently have a suspect, and have indicated that it may be weeks or months before they do.
The real question is whether this veil of secrecy is simply a normal part of such an investigation, or if there is potentially something far more foul afoot.
