Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) doesn’t serve on the committees with main jurisdiction over UAPs (Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena — or UFOs), so he was a little surprised by Ask a Pol’s question on UFO whistleblower David Grusch.

Not on my radar, no,” Warnock laughed. “No pun intended.”

Warnock readies to address local Atlanta reporters (and Matt Laslo…).

Below find a rough transcript of Ask a Pol’s interview with Sen. Raphael Warnock, slightly edited for clarity.

Matt Laslo: “I’ve got a random question. Have you heard of this UPA or UFO whistleblower David Grusch?”

RW: “No.”

ML: “It’s interesting, but I’m not surprised that you haven’t heard of it.”  

Warnock chuckles.

RW: “Nah.”

ML: “I guess Gillibrand’s investigating it on Armed Services and then Intel. Committee is also looking into it, so…”

RW: “Not on my radar, no. No pun intended.”

Both chuckle.

ML: “Have a good one, sir.”

RW: “Let me know if you need anything else.”
