John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, recently clarified to Las Vegas CBS affiliate KLAS that Clinton is indeed serious about UFOs.

On December 29, 2015, Clinton told The Conway Daily Sun that she is “going to get to the bottom” of the UFO issue. She also opined, “I think we may have been (visited already). We don’t know for sure.” As KLAS investigative reporter George Knapp points out in his story that aired on Monday, March 1, “CNN characterized Mrs. Clinton’s remarks as jokes.” But, according to Podesta, “He and his candidate are serious.”

“Podesta has encouraged journalists to ask his candidate about UFOs, and a few have done so,” Knapp reports.

When asked about Podesta by The Conway Daily Sun back in December, Clinton said, “He has made me personally pledge we are going to get the information out.” And Podesta verified that when speaking with KLAS.

“I think I’ve convinced her that we need an effort to kind of go look at that and declassify as much as we can, so that people have their legitimate questions answered,” he says. Podesta continues, “More attention and more discussion about unexplained aerial phenomena can happen without people who are in public life, who are serious about this, being ridiculed.”

Knapp comments that “the government’s interest in UFOs officially ended with the closure of Project Blue Book in 1969, but suspicion remains that unexplained encounters involving national security are still being studied by someone.” And Podesta is a strong advocate for the release of government files related to UFOs.
