Key Clinton/Obama Adviser John Podesta: We Really Need to Talk About the UFOs

This story's a few days old but if the man says we need to talk about the UFOs, we need to talk about the UFOs.

Clinton campaign chair: 'The American people can handle the truth' on UFOs

By Eli Watkins, CNN

...

CNN's Jake Tapper pulled aside Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, who was a guest on "The Lead," to talk aliens.

"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," Podesta said.

Podesta has made his interest in the possibility of alien life and conspiratorial leanings toward Area 51 well known. During his time serving in the Obama administration, Podesta tweeted, "Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files. #thetruthisstilloutthere cc: @NYTimesDowd."

Clinton herself pledged in January to "get to the bottom" of whether rumors of U.S. contact with extraterrestrial life were true.

In regard to Area 51, Podesta echoed Clinton's call, saying, "What I've talked to the secretary about, and what she's said now in public, is that if she's elected president, when she gets into office, she'll ask for as many records as the United States federal government has to be declassified, and I think that's a commitment that she intends to keep and that I intend to hold her to."

...

Asked if there is 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.

Na-fuckin'-noo, na-fuckin'-noo, huh?

This isn't a new thing with the Clintonoids -- you may remember Webb Hubbell's disclosure that one of Bill Clinton's first acts as president was to order him to investigate the possible US government cover-up of alien visitors. (Don't comment on old posts; you'll get auto-banned.)

As report by the New York Post:

BILL WANTED UFO PROBE: HUBBELL BOOK

By DEBORAH ORIN


President Clinton was intrigued by UFOs and wanted to know if they
really existed, says a new book by his golfing pal, disgraced Justice
Department official Webb Hubbell.

Hubbell says finding out about UFOs was one of the top priorities
Clinton gave him in sending him over to a job as one of Attorney
General Janet Reno's top deputies.

Clinton had said, "if I put you over at Justice I want you to find the
answers to two questions for me," Hubbell recounts.

"One, who killed JFK. And two, are there UFOs."

"Clinton was dead serious. I had looked into both, but wasn't satisfied
with the answers I was getting," Hubbell adds.

I wonder if this is a little Stray Voltage theory in action -- if the press might be interested in one serious negative issue, give them another less-serious negative issue to spin their wheels with.

Because the main question I have for John Podesta isn't whether he believes in UFOs.

The main question I have, and which the press should be asking, is what services he and his brother Tony performed as lobbyists for Vladimir Putin's private bank Sherbank, recently divulged as a major player in the Panama Papers scandal.

If you're not caught up on the Panama Papers, I did a long post on it yesterday.
