After a classified UAP briefing in a SCIF in the basement of the Capitol this morning most lawmakers were closed-lipped, but Rep. Eric Burlison (R-MO) piqued our interest when he said he’s convinced either the US government, a military contractor or a foreign nation has “some advanced form of propulsion or technology.”

“What it appears to be is somebody has discovered something—some advanced form of propulsion or technology—that may actually change all of our lives,” Burlison said. “But clearly it’s in an experimental phase or we’re experimenting with it.”
