Hillary Clinton vows to reveal the truth about UFOs if elected US President
Hillary Clinton has told a US journalist that she would “get to the bottom” of UFO conspiracies and claims if she is elected the first female US President later this year.
Speaking on a campaign stop in New Hampshire, Clinton told Daymond Steer of the Conway Daily Sun, “Yes, I’m going to get to the bottom of it,” when asked about releasing information on the government’s alleged involvement with UFOs.
It’s not the first time that Hillary – or her husband Bill – Clinton has spoken about UFOs. In 2014 ex-President Bill Clinton told US TV host Jimmy Kimmel: “If we were visited someday I wouldn’t be surprised, I just hope it’s not like Independence Day.”
“It may be the only way to unite us in this incredibly divided world of ours,” he added.
“If they’re out there, we better think of how all the differences among people on Earth would seem small if we felt threatened by a space invader.”
Commenting on her husband’s statement last week, Clinton added to Daymond Steer, “I think we may have been [visited already]. We don’t know for sure.”
She also pledged to fully investigate Area 51 – the top secret US Air Force base in Nevada beloved by alien conspiracy theorists and made famous by The X-Files TV series.
Clinton has perhaps been influenced by her campaign chairman John Podesta, a UFO enthusiast who has also worked for Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Clinton told Steer, “He has made me personally pledge we are going to get the information out, one way or another. Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51.”
Bill Clinton has previously answered questions on Area 51 – denying to Jimmy Kimmel that there were any aliens there: “A lot of our stealth technology is made there. We know that now, but there are no aliens there.”
We’ll have to wait until November to see if Hillary is elected – and whether the truth really is out there.
