Reports of Haney's death first appeared on the morning of February 22. Fox News' contributor Sara A. Carter tweeted regarding Haney's death saying, "Somebody I deeply respected and considered a friend Phil Haney – a DHS whistleblower during the Obama Admin was apparently killed yesterday in Southern California. Pray for his family and pray they find the person who murdered him. Still trying to get confirmation on details."
Philip 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 cautions the investigation is "active and ongoing". No final determination has been made.
But it seems that this will be another major cover up.
Haney's close friend Jan Markell, a radio host, author and speaker, tweeted out this from her last conversation with Phil Haney.
