Clinton Campaign Doubles Down on UFOs

Clinton Campaign Doubles Down on UFOs

After makings headlines back in January for promising to investigate UFOs if elected president, Hillary Clinton's campaign has once again offered a positive and open-minded perspective on the phenomenon.

As reported by C2C's George Knapp for KLAS, campaign manager John Podesta shed new light on their interest in the UFO enigma during a recent visit to Nevada.

His comments made it abundantly clear that the Clinton campaign sees UFOs as a serious topic and were not joking back in January, despite how the mainstream media portrayed it.

"I've talked to Hillary about that," he told political reporter Steve Sebellius about UFOs, "It's a little bit of a cause of mine. Which is that people really want to know what the government knows."

He went on to theorize that there are classified government files which could contain UFO information and argued that they should be made public.

"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," Podesta revealed.

While longtime UFO enthusiasts may be cynical about another government search for UFO documents, they may derive some hope from another position espoused by Podesta.

"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," he said.

Hopefully a leading presidential candidate advocating for UFOs can be the first step towards that scenario becoming a reality.
