Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “Suicide or Deep State Murder? Death of DHS Whistleblower Philip Haney”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The coroner’s office of the Amador County Sheriff’s Department in California has done a near 180-degree turnaround on the death of Department of Homeland Security whistleblower Philip Haney. After initially stating Haney’s death appeared to be “self-inflicted,” the department has subsequently stated that news reports attributing his death to suicide were dispensing “misinformation.” It said further that the sheriff’s office is “currently in the beginning phase of our investigation and any final determination as to the cause and manner of Mr. Haney’s death would be extremely premature and inappropriate.”

Haney was found dead of a gunshot wound on the morning of Friday, February 21, California. The author of See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad, Haney was an outspoken critic of the Obama administration’s systematic destruction of crucial data in the DHS database concerning Islamist terrorist organizations and hundreds of individuals in the United States involved in Islamic radicalism. This scrubbing of the data, he charged, greatly crippled the ability of intelligence and law enforcement to protect America, denying them information that “could have prevented subsequent domestic Islamist attacks.” Haney, a founding member of the Department of Homeland Security following the 9/11 terror attacks, testified before the U.S. Senate, and appeared on numerous radio, television, and Internet programs.

Relatives, friends, and colleagues were quick to voice doubt about the initial finding that the cause of Haney’s death was a “self-inflicted” gunshot, and began posting social-media statements challenging the rush to designate his death as a suicide. This writer reached out to a number of friends and colleagues who had worked with him and spoken with him recently, including Trevor Loudon, Brannon Howse, Representative Matt Shea, Clare Lopez, Kip Webster, and others. The key points that were reiterated by one person after another were that:

3) After grieving for his wife, who died of cancer, he had found love again and was looking forward to an upcoming marriage to his fiancé;

4) He had stated to many people that if he is ever found dead of a supposed “suicide” to “never believe it for a minute”;
