It’s not just the House Freedom Caucus looking into UFOs. Senators are investigating UFO whistleblower David Grusch too. 

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) exclusively tells Ask a Pol that she’s requested a private meeting with Grusch, the former US intelligence official who testified before the US House Oversight Committee last week. And she wants Grusch to sit down with All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) Director Sean Kirkpatrick. 

As chair of the Armed Services Subcommittee on Emerging Threats & Capabilities, Gillibrand is leading the Senate investigation into UAPs (or Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena, according to NASA).

Gillibrand tells Ask a Pol’s Matt Laslo, she recently met with Kirkpatrick, and now she wants him to sit down with Grusch. 

“I've asked for a meeting, and I've asked for Dr. Kirkpatrick to meet with him too,” Gillibrand says.

Besides the private meetings, Gillibrand says she still wants to hear from Grusch in a public hearing. The senator, who also serves on the Senate Intelligence Committee, also says to expect another public UAP report from AARO by January or so. 

Ask a Pol caught up with Gillibrand last Wednesday, July 26, shortly after Grusch finished testifying in the House, so she hadn’t had time to catch his testimony or get briefed on it.
