These days Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is the top Republican — or Ranking Member — on the Senate Budget Committee, but a few years back he chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee and he remains one of — if not the — the most senior senators on that panel.

TRANSCRIPT: Sen. Chuck Grassley

Matt Laslo: “Have a random question for you. Have you heard of this UAP or UFO whistleblower, David Grusch?”

Chuck Grassley: “No.”

ML: “I only ask because his claim is that there are SAPs — or Special Access Programs — that have been hidden from Congress and that becomes a Judiciary [Committee] question.”

CG: “That's got nothing to do with my investigation, so I don't have any comment on it because I don't know much about it.”

ML: “Yeah, fair. But it’s interesting, because he makes a constitutional claim that the executive branch has been hiding Special Access Programs from Congress. So I'm curious if it does…”

CG: “Well, I’ve got 28 investigations going, I can’t keep on top of somebody else's investigation.”

ML: “There you go. Appreciate you, sir.”

I cover Congress different. I listen. Learning daily. Even while throwing stones at all the glass houses. This will be a stream of my noteworthy interviews. They're conducted at the US Capitol, if not otherwise noted. Matt Laslo is a veteran congressional reporter, Johns Hopkins University lecturer, fmr. Vice News Tonight/HBO correspondent, etc.
