EXCLUSIVE—Marco Rubio: “You have to bifurcate” UAP investigation from whistleblower David Grusch

Last Thursday, July 27, the day after UFO whistleblower David Grusch testified before the House Oversight Committee, Ask a Pol brought it up to Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chair Marco Rubio (R-FL) who hadn’t caught the testimony but was quick to say he wasn’t dismissing it. 

“We’re not ignoring it,” Rubio says, adding the Senate Intelligence Committee is trying to deal with it “in a very different way” than their House counterparts.  

Rubio also pulls the veil back a tad on his thinking as he describes the Senate focus on UAPs (Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena). 

“You have to bifurcate this issue. The stuff that they're seeing over restricted airspace, which everyone admits is real and needs to be addressed,” Rubio says. “And then the stories about historic programs. I mean, I don't know, that's gonna take—if that's even true—that's gonna take a long time to unpack. And I'm not ignoring that either.”

As for if their investigation is bearing any fruit? 

“Am I getting answers? Like are people—no. We're getting a lot of information, I'm not sure we're getting a lot of answers yet,” Rubio says. “But these things take time.”

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.
