Like other attendees of this week’s classified UAP briefing in a House SCIF, Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) was unimpressed to the point of being annoyed the officials wasted lawmaker’s time.
“I did not find it productive, but that's as far as I'll go,” Lynch told Ask a Pol’s Matt Laslo as he walked up two flights of stairs in non-public sections of the Capitol Visitors Center with Lynch on Thursday.
“Would you like to have another public hearing?” Laslo inquired. “Would that be more advantageous?”
“I doubt that,” Lynch said. “Well, if they wouldn't disclosure in a classified briefing, a classified setting, why would you think they would offer more information in public?”
