Death of DHS Whistleblower Philip Haney Not a Suicide, Say House Republicans

Amador County Sheriff cites ‘misinformation’ that death was suicide; Investigation ongoing

By Lloyd Billingsley, March 11, 2020 2:15 pm

Philip Haney, the former Department of Homeland Security whistleblower, found dead in Amador County last month, was not a suicide but a murder, according to Reps. Louis Gohmert (R-Texas) and Steve King (R-Iowa), both friends of the deceased.

“I don’t believe that Phil Haney committed suicide.” Rep. King said on the House floor this week, and as Cheryl Chumley reported in the Washington Times, Rep. Gohmert also disbelieved the suicide story. “I’d been concerned about his safety, with all the information he knew and people who could’ve gotten in trouble,” the Texas Republican told reporters.

The Amador County Sheriff’s office also cast doubts on reports of suicide. “Unfortunately, there was misinformation immediately being put out that we have determined Mr. Haney’s death to be a suicide,” a February 24 Coroner’s Investigation Update explains. “This is not the case.”

According to the Sheriff, “Mr. Haney was located in a park and ride open area immediately adjacent to State Highway 16 near State Highway 124. Highway 16 is a busy state highway and used as a main travel route to and from Sacramento. The location is less than 3 miles from where he was living.”

The Sheriff scheduled a “forensic autopsy to be performed by forensic pathologists from the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office” and “reached out to our law enforcement partners in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to assist in analyzing documents, phone records and a lap top that were recovered from the scene and Mr. Haney’s RV. We are currently in possession of his vehicle, the firearm located at the scene, and his RV and we will be requesting evidence processing assistance from the FBI on those items as well.”

Sheriff’s investigators “conducted a neighborhood canvas and interviewed his RV park neighbors on the day of the incident along with checking key areas for any video surveillance that may exist from that time. The investigators are continuing to follow-up with the overwhelming number of persons who are calling our office from throughout the United States asking for detailed information on our investigation.”

Gohmert and King said Haney carried a thumb drive containing sensitive documents. “That thumb drive is curiously missing,” the Washington Times reported.

Haney, a UC Riverside alum, worked as a field agricultural entomologist in the Middle East, where he began studying Arabic and the Quran. Haney proved adept at tracking terrorist groups, but as he explained in The Hill on May 5, 2016, the Department of Homeland Security ordered him “to delete or modify several hundred records of individuals tied to designated Islamist terror groups like Hamas from the important federal database, the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS).”

In a 2016 interview with Frank Gaffney, Haney explained,  “The mosque that [San Bernardino terrorist] Syed Farook attended was part of that Tablighi Jamaat network. The Obama administration deleted sixty-seven records out of the system that I had worked on as a component of the Tablighi case.”

Haney provided a broader picture in his book See Something Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad.

According to the Amador County Sheriff, “Any final determination as to the cause and manner of Mr. Haney’s death would be extremely premature and inappropriate. No determination will be made until all evidence is examined and analyzed. This investigation is still active and will be ongoing. No further details will be provided at this time.”

  1. LOL, they reached out to the FBI’s crime lab! Well, I guess handing the evidence over to the same national security state that knocked the guy off is the recipe for cover-up artistry. The FBI are the political police, not real police. If the Amador County Sheriff wanted to investigate a murder, he could investigate a murder. We’ve got crime labs and evidence labs in California and he could use them. Local governments have the tools to investigate the national security state in order to keep their residents protected from the real perpetrators of crimes – the Federal Government. Calling in the FBI is the same as inviting the gangsters in your home.

  2. Very strange things going on in our world today, deeper more embedded, more dangerous than any Corona virus. I read a long time ago that since the 1920’s the muslim brotherhood has been working a patient careful plan to overthrow our country from the inside. A few yrs ago I was actually banned from a church here in Pa, for gently suggesting to the pastor we are careful not to sway from our solid faith in Jesus Christ our Lord & Savior, when he was talking about bringing muslims into our church. Then I discovered that I was unaware I had been going to church with the highest of local government officials, who appointed a new police chief, who’s underling cops accosted, threatened, chained me up in a cell, and put fake contrived charges on me costing me thousands, everything I had and could borrow in legal fees. The local magistrate who swore in that police chief, hand picked by those who would ban me from their church for speaking up for Jesus, being a Christian, upheld charges contrived against me even despite no witness, no pics, vids, or any slightest form of evidence, and my excellent expensive lawyer even getting the cop, on the stand to admit he never even had any reason to believe the garbage he swore under oath to a district attorney to get a warrant to arrest me on, was true. The American legal system is widely used to fiercely persecute Christians today, from taking 10 comandments out of courts, to prayer out of schools, top to bottom and all in between, cases like mine I’m sure probably hundreds of thousands across the country that never come to light. God bless Mr. Haney and his family & loved ones.

  3. I don’t understand why we haven’t heard anything more about Philip Haney’s death. Nothing is even mentioned recently. I read his book and all the articles about his life and achievements and it is so upsetting to me that the persons responsible for his murder are not in prison. He was a remarkable man who loved our country and was
    dedicated to keep our country safe, but the powers that be didn’t have the same goal, I know he had completed another book that was to be released soon, where is that? He mentioned his life was in danger, he was so intelligent, I believe he would have kept all the information in a very secure place. I know our country will never be as safe as he would have made it, if he was allowed to release the information he gathered about our enemies both inside and outside our country. God help us!

  4. Here it is almost 6 months after his death, and we still don’t know who killed him. We can pretty well guess why, but we still need information. By the way, he said he had another book coming out; perhaps that was what was on the thumb drive, but he said that someone (perhaps Art Moore) had a separate copy of that transcript. Why aren’t we seeing the book – is it in publication?

  5. I am surprised Philip didn’t have 2 gun shot wounds to the back of his head and it still be classified as a suicide! Sad the FBI on the case for 6 months and still no final report???

  6. Murder investigations have taken years with more information, This one has an implication of the swamp silencing
    Mr. Haney because of what he had already revealed? Why not silence him before he published the book, or before he sent the material to be published? I am not saying it is possible as they may have been information of a more sinister nature that was to be published.

  8. I google searched to find this article today after I happened upon a video of Joe Biden addressing Muslims and using Muhammed’s words from the Quran to call for Jihad. Philip Haney was trying to warn us of the Democratic parties ties to Islam. Another red flag went up when I truth checked the video on snopes for truth. Snopes said it was false, but as I was about to leave the page , I noticed the question I had used wasn’t what they answered about. I asked if Joe Biden calling for jihad video was authentic. what they substituted and fact checked was, did Joe Biden campaign post video of Joe Biden calling for jihad. I didn’t need that question answered. I knew there was no way Joe intended for the rest of America to see that video. I feel like Snopes intentionally changed the question so They could put the false indication at the top of the page thinking I would see it and turn away and not read the rest of it. I just can’t figure why they would do that. In the video he also declares that on day one of his presidency he will remove travel restrictions that President Trump put on Muslim countries with ties to terrorism. I typed Joe Biden video calling for terrorism on Cnn , msnbc, nbc, ny times, Washington post, CBS , ( all suspected fake news outlets) , one at a time to see if they were reporting the story or if they actually were fake news. They definitely are fake and irrelevant news as none of them mentioned a thing about it. Gateway pundit is the first media outlet that I found it on. Fox News is the first network news that I found it on. if you read Bob Snodgrass‘s comment above, I’ve got a feeling the treatment he received is coming to the rest of the country if Joe Biden is elected.

    1. The silence of the media is deafening. And ALL those affiliated with his investigation. There’s an elephant in the swamp!. The Lord God he prayed too, will set things rite. Indeed.
