According to a story in The Conway Daily Sun, Hillary Clinton says she will look into UFOs and Area 51, and that aliens are probably already here.
Daymond Steer, a reporter for The Conway Daily Sun, a free daily newspaper in Conway, New Hampshire, says Hillary Clinton stopped by to join their editorial board meeting last week.Â At the end of the meeting, Steer asked a few questions about UFOs.
Apparently, he had asked her questions about UFOs during her last visit with their editorial board in 2007. He reportedÂ that she remembered his UFO questions and â€œseemed to have fun discussing the topic.â€
According to Steers, in reference to UFOs, Clinton told him with enthusiasm, â€œYes, Iâ€™m going to get to the bottom of it.â€
Steers then asked for aÂ comment regarding statements on UFOs made by her husband, Bill Clinton, on an April, 2014 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
In the show, Kimmel asked, â€œI probably wouldnâ€™t even finish the oath. I would run to the White House. Iâ€™d demand to see all of the classified files on the UFOs because I want to know. I want to know what has been going on. Did you do that?â€
Bill replied, â€œSort of.â€
Bill then went on to describe how he looked into the alleged crash of a UFO in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 and into the legends of alien spacecraft being secreted away to the mysterious Area 51 base in Nevada. In both cases, he says he found nothing of interest.
However, when asked about these questions in the past he has added the caveat that there may be career bureaucrats keeping secrets even from presidents.
In a Q & A session held in Hong Kong for CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets, a large independent equity broker and financial services group, Bill said:
I did try to find out if there were any secret documents that reveal things, and if there were, they were concealed from me too. I wouldnâ€™t be the first president that underlings have lied to, or that career Â bureaucrats have waited out. But there may be some career person sitting around somewhere hiding these dark secrets even from elected presidents, but if so, they successfully alluded me, and I am almost embarrassed to tell you I did try to find out.
As for Hillaryâ€™s response to Billâ€™s answers to Kimmelâ€™s questions, she told Steers, â€œI think we may have been (visited already). We donâ€™t know for sure.â€
According to Steers, she also says she will look into Area 51, although she called it Area 54 before later correcting herself.
Hillary also mentioned the UFO interests of the chairman of her campaign, John Podesta, who also served as Billâ€™s chief of staff, and was a counselor to President Obama.
Hillary told Steers, â€œHe 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.â€
Podesta has often discussed his passion for UFOs. His most brazen public comments came during a press conference in 2002 when he called for the release of secret government UFO files. He stated: â€œIt is time for the government to declassify records that are more than 25 years old, and to provide scientists with data that will assist in determining the real nature of this phenomenon.â€
More recently, he has turned to twitter to make his public statements on UFOs. In the beginning of 2015, Podesta tweeted, â€œ1. Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files. #thetruthisstilloutthere cc: @NYTimesDowdâ€
