TRANSCRIPT: Sen. Lummis (7-20-2023)

Matt Laslo: “How are you, ma'am?”

Cynthia Lummis: “Hey!”

ML: “Got a random question.”

CL: “Alright.”

ML: “Have you looked into or heard of this UAP-UFO whistleblower David Grusch?”

CL: “No.”

ML: “Oh, you haven't?”

CL: “No.”

ML: “Your former House colleagues are holding a public hearing on it next week.”

CL: “Really? Huh.”

ML: “Guess he worked, he was an intelligence official. And Rubio says it's intriguing because this is the first time, he's like, ‘we get whistleblowers all the time, you know, on stuff in the sky, but this is the one that the Inspector General vetted, said ‘it's urgent’ and sent it on to Congress.”

Lummis shows genuine surprise on face.

ML: “I know.”

CL: “Wow.”

ML: “I’m intrigued.”

CL: “It is intriguing, because they are almost saying, ‘this is not a whack job. This is a credible person that needs to be heard.’”

ML: “Exactly.”

CL: “Wow cool.”

ML: “Looks like we’ll learn more next week. Stay tuned. Have a good one.”

CL: “Thank you.”
