One of the major presidential candidates appears to be reaching out to UFO believers. The Huffington Post reports: “Hillary Clinton has boldly gone where no front-running White House wannabe has gone before. The former Secretary of State is promising to investigate and declassify government files on UFOs and make them available to the public.”
Clinton talked briefly about the subject during a recent appearance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” which you can see below. In the latest development, her campaign chairman, John Podesta, was grilled last week on the issue by CNN’s Jake Tapper.
Podesta reiterated that Clinton, if she’s elected president, would seek to declassify any UFO records held by the federal government. Podesta, a former White House chief of staff, noted that President Bill Clinton also sought information on UFOs and Area 51 when he was in office.
“But I think that the U.S. government could do a much better job in answering the quite legitimate questions that people have about what’s going on with unidentified aerial phenomena, and the American people can handle the truth,” Podesta added. “So they should just do a thorough search and open it up.”
Asked whether he thinks the documents contain evidence of alien life, Podesta said: “That’s for the public to judge, once they’ve seen all the evidence that the U.S. government has.”
