Philip Haney, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower during the Obama administration, was found dead near Plymouth, California, on Friday.
Authorities said 66-year-old Haney died from a single gunshot wound to his chest, which was determined to be "self-inflicted." Read more on this here.
Haney was a good friend to Glenn Beck and the program. On the radio Monday, Glenn said it's almost impossible for him to believe that the man he knew so well could have taken his own life.
"He was one of the most honorable men I've ever met," Glenn said. "A guy who was willing to put himself in danger. A guy who knew what he was dealing with, knew that he could be killed, or that he would be disappeared, or that he could go to prison. And he was absolutely unafraid. And this is one reason why I know, why I so strongly feel that he didn't kill himself."
Watch this clip to hear Glenn's thoughts as he pays tribute to a true patriot.
