Local authorities reported Philip Haney, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower and outspoken opponent of former President Barack Obama’s administration, was found dead Friday approximately 40 miles east of Sacramento, Calif.

According to the Amador County Sheriff’s Office, Haney, 66, “looked to have suffered a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound.”

Martin A. Ryan, the sheriff and coroner, gave an overview of the case.

“Deputies and detectives responded to the area of Highway 124 and Highway 16 in Plymouth on February 21, 2020 at about 1012 hours to the report of a male person on the ground with a gunshot wound,” according to the release.

“They found and recognised 66-year-old Philip Haney, who was deceased and looked to have suffered a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound, when they arrived. Near Haney and his truck, a handgun was discovered.

This study is still under progress. At this moment, no additional information will be published “Added the office.

According to the Washington Examiner, Haney was recently in communication with DHS officials about a future return to the department, and he was also engaged to be married.

In June 2016, Haney appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee, alleging that the Obama-era Department of Homeland Security had instructed him to erase hundreds of files about alleged Islamic terrorist organisation links.

According to the Examiner, Haney argued that if some of the information had not been erased, multiple assaults in the United States may have been avoided.

In a February 2016 article published in The Hill, Haney stated that Obama had “thrown the intelligence community under the bus” for failing to “connect the dots” after a Nigerian Muslim terror suspect was linked to a foiled terror plot on Christmas Day in 2009.

“Most Americans were unaware of the tremendous harm his denunciation caused to morale at the Department of Homeland Security, where I worked,” Haney said, referring to Obama.

“Many of us were enraged by his statements because we knew his administration had been working behind the scenes to remove the raw data — the actual intelligence we had gathered over years — and erase the dots.

The dots represent the intelligence that is required to keep Americans safe, and the Obama administration has ordered that they be erased.”

Haney was also the author of “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad,” which he wrote after working for DHS for roughly 15 years.

According to the Examiner, Haney contacted the newspaper in November about intentions to publish a sequel to the book.

Haney, who resigned in 2015, worked as a scientist in the Middle East while studying Arabic culture and language before joining DHS in 2002 as a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) farm officer.

He was elevated to the Advanced Targeting Team after working as an armed CBP officer. He specialised in Islamic theology as well as the worldwide Islamic movement’s strategy and tactics.
