DHS whistleblower Philip Haney was found shot dead near his vehicle in California. Haney died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot, according to a statement issued Saturday afternoon by the Office the Sheriff-Coroner for Amador County, California that cautioned the investigation was “active and ongoing”. Haney had been missing for two days.
“My friend Phil Haney was found shot yesterday in CA. I had lunch with him a month ago. He warned something could happen to him. He was to get married in a month. It will be falsely called a suicide.”
I am devastated to hear my dear friend Phil Haney has passed. I was texting with him on Wednesday and he had just returned from his sisters and was praising God for a breakthrough! I had prayed with him on Tuesday.

Philip Haney was the co-author with Art Moore of the book, See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad. Haney told Sean Hannity in 2016 that he was ordered during the Obama administration to scrub the record of Muslims in the US with terrorist ties. He also spoke out against the Muslim Brotherhood’s Obama-era infiltration of the US government in October 2019.
The story of his death was not reported by the mainstream media.
Law Enforcement Today reported:
We have not yet received independent confirmation from the Sheriff’s Department, but sources within law enforcement have verified that there’s a death investigation underway.
If you have seen a few episodes of Behind the Uniform or have ever watched Fox News, you probably recognize the name Philip Haney. He was the DHS whistleblower that dropped the hammer on the Obama administration regarding the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS.
He was also a friend to many at Law Enforcement Today. We have an exclusive interview with him at the bottom of the article that was conducted on Behind the Uniforms before his death.

National security specialist Ilana Freedman who had worked with Philip Haney, said she was very surprised to hear the news about Philip. Phil wrote a promotion for her book. Ilana told The Gateway Pundit, “I believe he was murdered. I don’t believe it was suicide. I am an intelligence analyst. What I see here is something very nasty. He thought several weeks ago he might be assassinated. Philip said if he were killed it would absolutely would not be suicide.”
Ilana added that people who knew him believed he would never commit suicide. “He was a very religious man who believed suicide was a sin. A fellow associate I know said Philip stated several times that if he was accused of suicide not to believe it. He said that to a lot of people.” And Ilana spoke about a project Philip Haney was working on that was going to be published this year. He had very serious allegations. Phil claimed the terror attacks in California and Florida could have been prevented.
Rep. King knew Phil Haney since he outed himself as a whistleblower during the Obama years. Steve said whatever Philip Haney told you, “you could by golly believe.” Steve also had Haney as a guest speaker during an event in Iowa to promote his book. Rep. King told The Gateway Pundit, “I don’t believe Phil Haney committed suicide. Phil was a committed Christian.”
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) spoke out on the House floor this week to remember his friend Philip Haney. Rep. Gohmert did not come right out and say Phillip Haney was murdered. But he did do an excellent job of explaining why members of the Obama administration would have excellent motives to have done so.
Rep. Louie Gohmert: “I had a friend I met here years ago. His name is Phil Haney and he was one of the kindest, most patriotic, competent people I’ve ever known in my life… We had a mutual pact. If it’s said that either one of us end up having committed suicide then the other is going to make sure that truth wins out… He saw things that were a threat to this country, he said something, and he was severely punished for it, because apparently the Obama administration had some radical ties that they did not want anybody, including Philip Haney, to expose… He was gonna name names of people that put this country at risk…and he ends with a bullet in him?”
Vlad Tepes has the entire speech.
Two years after his death, a Northern California sheriff-coroner ruled Phil Haney’s death a suicide.
Haney, 66, was found dead with a single gunshot wound Feb. 21, 2020, in a park-and-ride lot along a busy state highway in a rural area of Amador County, east of Sacramento. He was a former DHS national security official for 15 years and self-described whistleblower critical of President Barack Obama’s administration.
Haney’s death was controversial enough for the Amador County Sheriff’s Office to bring in FBI crime scene investigators and other analysts to assist.
Investigators found that Haney left a suicide note with a signature that a forensic analysis determined was in his handwriting. The gun used was traced to him.
He also left behind neatly arranged financial documents with instructions on how he wanted his assets distributed, according to investigators. And Haney gave away his potted plants the day before he was found dead.
“After a thorough review of the evidence collected and processed by the Sheriff’s Office and FBI, the Sheriff’s Office has determined the manner of Mr. Haney’s death to be suicide,” the statement from Sheriff Gary Redman’s office said. “This case has been classified as closed.”
But not everyone is convinced of this final report by authorities.
Brannon Howse, who knew Haney, and at least two of Phil Haney’s friends and associates discussed Haney’s life and death. They still believe there is more to this story than what is in the official report.
