In this video, Congressman King delivers remarks on the floor of the House of Representatives on 2-28-2020 in which he honors the life of his friend, and patriot, Phil Haney.
Haney was an Obama-era whistle-blower in the Department of Homeland Security who was recently found dead under suspicious circumstances.
Excerpts: “Phil Haney was a patriot. When I first met Phil Haney, it was in a quiet, careful room over here just off the Capitol a little ways. And, I knew a little about his story. But when I first heard his story, he was concerned then that he would be a target by people and he had a thumb drive with a lot of data on it, I don’t know how many gigs it was, hanging on a lanyard around his neck. He kept that with him, and I understood that that information was also deposited in a remote location, or two, or more, so there was a redundancy if anything happened to Phil Haney, that data would be accessible to the people whom he trusted, I imagine, the most. So that was his insurance policy that he wouldn’t be killed.”
. . . “When there were people who would come talk to him, just one-on-one he often said to them ‘you’re taking a risk talking to me because you could become a target too.’ And he had said to friends as recently as two weeks before his death ‘if there’s an announcement
…if I’m dead and there is a suicide letter it will be a fake.’ He often said, ‘I would never commit suicide.’”
. . . “I can’t be convinced Phil Haney committed suicide. I knew him too well. I’ve talked to at least a dozen of his close friends since that period of time that also said the same thing. The instance the news hit them, they knew that Phil had already prepared us to know that he would never commit suicide. He was a very deep and devoted Christian man.”
