TRANSCRIPT: Sen. Bob Menendez (7-26-2023)

Asked Menendez about Grusch the day before, but the Senate tram was closing so he couldn’t hear the question.

Matt Laslo: “Hey how are you sir. Random one I asked you yesterday. Have you heard of, has this UAP-UFO whistleblower, David Grusch, been on your radar at all?”

Bob Menendez: “UAP?”

ML: “UFOs. UAPS — it’s the new…”

BM: “No, no, no, no.”

ML: “Yeah? He testified in the House today, and Intel’s looking into him. You should talk to [Intel Chair Mark] Warner or [Intel Vice-Chair Marco] Rubio about him.”

BM: “Okay. Okay.”

ML: “It’s all classified, so I’m not allowed to know anything.”

BM: “Well, you seem to know more than I do!”

Menendez laughs.

ML: “Right? Preciate ya, sir.”

BM: “Alright.”
