Earlier today, a report was posted that Doug Hagmann, host of The Hagmann & Hagmann Report was involved in an altercation with armed authorities while driving on a city street early this morning. As reported, he suddenly and inexplicably found himself surrounded by police SUV vehicles and a cadre of police officers treating him as if he was a terrorist threat.
That incident was indeed accurate as initially reported, but was temporarily removed at his request until further details could be provided. After obtaining additional details of the incident, it was determined that this incident was not directly related to the journalistic work he has been performing, or the active NSA surveillance he has experienced. Investigation ultimately determined that the incident originated from a false complaint filed with a law enforcement agency by an individual familiar with Doug Hagmann’s work and positive reputation. It was an attempt, in part, to harm his reputation as well as take him away from his investigative work.
Following some tense moments, the incident involving Doug Hagmann has been cleared and he escaped from this drama unhurt. Nonetheless, some very sensitive issues related to this incident are currently in play and have yet to be fully resolved. Accordingly, Doug Hagmann asked that any further release of information be limited until these issues can be resolved for the safety and security of him and his family. Doug Hagmann expects to be able to talk more freely about the matter on our special Sunday program on The Hagmann & Hagmann Report at 9:00 p.m.
Update: Make no mistake that there is a legitimate threat to whistle blowers and others who dare expose the truth, although in this case, the police acted properly based on the best information they had in their possession at the time, although the information with which they were provided was proven to be false and maliciously reported, according to Hagmann. “It’s a very convoluted situation,” stated Hagmann, adding that there is more to this story than can be responsibly reported at this time.” Hagmann added: “I would like to thank you and everyone involved in praying for my safety and the safety of my family. It is my belief that it was prayer and the hand of God that diffused a situation that could have turned out much, much worse. I am glad to be back in the safety of my own home, and cannot begin to express just how much of a role prayer and Godliness will play in the things we are about to experience on a larger scale. May God bless you and everyone for their thoughts and prayers.”
