Members of the Congressional UAP Caucus are starting to feel trapped in a different dimension.

After Friday’s classified UFO briefing, Rep. Eric Burlison (R-MO) — who was the last lawmaker to leave the SCIF — was optimistic, because he felt the Inspector General tried to answer the “entire list of questions” he compiled ahead of time.

“There's certain locations that they've provided that we can certainly look into. That's what I'm looking forward to,” Burlison exclusively told Ask a Pol as we escorted him from the SCIF to the House floor.

“You guys can actually do an investigation now?”

“Yes, and hopefully we’ll get access,” Burlison said. “Although, it appears — based on conversations — that it's not going to be easy to get access.”

*ICYMI: Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-FL) also mentioned exclusively told Ask a Pol that the UAP Caucus now knows specific “places” to investigate.

Below find a rough transcript of Ask a Pol’s exclusive interview with Rep. Eric Burlison (R-MO), slightly edited for clarity.

TRANSCRIPT: Rep. Eric Burlison

SCENE: Burlison briefly answered other reporter’s questions at the cameras staked outside of the SCIF, which Laslo missed escorting Rep. Glenn Grothman to the House floor through the Capitol’s windy, confusing and bleak basements.

Matt Laslo: “Last but not least.”

Eric Burlison: “Where’s the Capitol?”

Burlison’s the last member to leave the SCIF and he’s late for the House vote the rest of his colleagues have already cast at this point in the late morning.

ML: “I’ll show you. I just walked Grothman to the floor too. Your reaction?”

EB: “I just gave an interview.”

ML: “I don’t want what you tell other people.”

EB: “My reaction is, that — you know my worldview — my worldview is not changed.”

ML: “And you — your complaint previously has been, you don't, Congress didn't know the questions to ask. It sounds like you guys have gotten more information today that…?”

EB: “I brought forward an entire list of questions and asked, and I feel like the Inspector General was doing his best to answer and wanted to provide as much information as he could. I can say that without…”

ML: “But then Grothman told me some of the questions you guys had, they didn't even bring in the material to answer it, even though it was obvious that you guys would be asking?”

EB: “He was not investigating the things, some of the things that they wanted to hear.”

ML: “Yeah?”

EB: “And so, but to me…”

ML: “Is that stuff outside of Grusch’s initial claim?”

EB: “There's certainly clarity on some things. I mean, absolutely he made some things clearer, to me. But I will say, based on this and the previous hearing, my worldview from the beginning of this has not changed.”

ML: “Yeah? Now I feel — so there's some corroboration?”

Burlison’s eyes say: No — classified, can’t answer.

ML: “Nothing was debunked?”

Again, Burlison’s eyes say: Nope — classified, can’t answer.

EB: “No.”

ML: “I'm putting words in your mouth!”

Laslo thinks he’s funny…

EB: “No. I'm not saying that there's corroboration between those two. I'm saying that there's nothing incongruent.”

ML: “Yeah, yeah. Interesting. And do you want public hearings now? Or Grothman said you might have to do another one in the SCIF because they didn't have the answers.”

EB: “Oh, definitely. And I think that we need to, there's certain locations that they've provided that we can certainly look into. That's what I'm looking forward to.”

ML: “Yeah. You guys can actually do an investigation now?”

EB: “Yes, and hopefully we’ll get access. Although, it appears — based on conversations — that it's not going to be easy to get access.”

ML: “Yeah?”

EB: “Thank you.”

Burlison jets to the House floor.

ML: “Preciate ya! Have a good weekend, sir.”
