Recommended Posts

"Philip Haney, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower who was an outspoken critic of the administration of former President Barack Obama, was found dead Friday, about 40 miles east of Sacramento, Calif., local authorities said.

"Haney, 66, "appeared to have suffered a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound," the Amador County Sheriff's Office said in a release. Sheriff and coroner Martin A. Ryan shared the initial details of the case."

Can’t believe someone responded with a laughing emoji to a person killing themselves. :unsure:

Haney didn't kill himself.  He was preparing to release new, damaging information on Obama.

"Investigators backtrack on initial ruling of DHS whistleblower, Phil Haney's, death being a suicide."

I’ve watched several videos of this guy on YouTube, and he seems to have a very flat affect which might suggest he would be prone to melancholy, perhaps.

He says in one of the videos that he’s married, which might diminish the inclination toward suicide.

Watching him closely, my guess is that he is medicated. 

The most interesting video that I saw, suggested that he was a big Trump supporter, and at the same time a very strong believer in constitutional protections. So perhaps he felt that Trump let him down?

Agreed. This is where a laughing emoji is an appropriate response:

If so many people who are outspoken of those in charge, both those we hear about and those deaths that are hushed up and ignored by the media, weren't suicided then I might take the investigator's word at it.  At this point you may as well flip a coin to determine if a "suicide" was intentional or not when the victim is outspoken against persons in power.

Presumably you have evidence supports the idea that any of these are not suicide then?

True. I hate to say it but Julian Assange comes to mind. Suuuuure we want to put a serial whistleblower from another country on trial...because revealing damaging government secrets about our illegal progams makes HIM the bad guy.  Is this what Bizarro World feels like?

Police backtrack on Obama-era DHS whistleblower's initial 'suicide' reports after his body was found by a California highway - as they reveal the FBI is examining documents and a laptop found near the scene

Philip Haney, who spoke out against his own agency during the Obama administration, was found dead in Plymouth, California last Friday

His body was found in a park and ride area near Highway 16 and Highway 124 

The Amador County Sheriff's Office initially said the 66-year-old was found with what appeared to be a 'self-inflicted gunshot wound' 

The sheriff's office have since described those initial reports as 'misinformation' and said they have asked the FBI for assistance in investigating Haney's death

They are conducting an autopsy and examining documents, a laptop and phone records found at the scene 

Haney gained national attention in 2016 when he criticized the agency for its handling of radical Jihadists and Islamic extremists 

Source have said that Haney had been in contact with officials about possibly making a return to the the DHS
