Philip Haney, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) founder and subsequent whistleblower who was an outspoken critic of the administration of former President Barack Obama, was found shot dead last Friday, about 40 miles east of Sacramento, Calif.
The coroner, without examination, declared Haney’s death a “suicide.” They have retracted that statement.
Word is none of Phil’s closest contacts have been interviewed by the police, including his fiance who claims he was looking ahead to their marriage.
I am not a doctor. But you don’t think you need to be a rocket scientist to determine if the angle of the gun could’ve been made by the victim’s right hand, or left-hand, whatever the case may be, with corresponding gunpowder residue on his hand. If the family does indeed suspect, they need to act quickly. If they lack the funds, we’ll kickstart, they can contact me.
Coroner’s Investigation Update – Philip Haney "there was misinformation immediately being put out that we have determined Mr. Haney’s death to be a suicide" Oh ya mean your "single self-inflicted gun wound" statement earlier? pic.twitter.com/MxVoxulmIA

From an esteemed colleague:
I’ve had several conversations with a hardboiled retired Colorado Sheriff’s office investigator who did multiple homicide, suicide, conspiracy murder investigations. Here what he wrote about the shitty little statement released about Phil’s death:
“If I understand the initial coroner’s report, the ‘determination’ that Philip Haney died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound was immediately made at the scene when officers first arrived. Now, that is some shoddy police work, if ever I saw shoddy work – if that is in fact when the ‘determination’ of apparent suicide was made. Very poorly written coroner’s report. Gunshot residue tests would have to be done, looking for nitrate traces on his strong hand and clothing. That takes some time and laboratory analysis. That test wouldn’t have been done at the scene. Even that test would not rule out a homicide, if nitrates were found on his hand and clothing. A complete post-mortem should have been done and a thorough background investigation should have been conducted before this was declared an apparent suicide. There has not been adequate time to do this investigation and come to any sort of conclusion.
Whoever wrote that initial coroner’s report should be fired for incompetence. This stinks to high Heaven.”
In June 2016, Haney testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he alleged that the Obama-era DHS had ordered him to delete hundreds of files about reputed associates of Islamic terrorist groups. Haney made the case that several attacks in the U.S. could have been prevented if some of the files had not been deleted, the Examiner reported.
Writing in The Hill in February 2016, Haney claimed Obama had thrown the U.S. intelligence community “under the bus” for failing to “connect the dots” after a Nigerian Muslim terror suspect was linked to a failed terror plot on Christmas Day in 2009.
“Most Americans were unaware of the enormous damage to morale at the Department of Homeland Security, where I worked, his condemnation caused,” Haney wrote, referring to Obama. “His words infuriated many of us because we knew his administration had been engaged in a bureaucratic effort to destroy the raw material — the actual intelligence we had collected for years, and erase those dots. The dots constitute the intelligence needed to keep Americans safe, and the Obama administration was ordering they be wiped away.”
Haney, who worked for DHS for about 15 years, was also the author of “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad.”
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
