Ask a Pol asks:

What are your thoughts on members of the House Oversight Committee asking for a Select UAP Committee?

Key Raskin: 

“I understand that, yeah,” Raskin exclusively tells Ask a Pol. “I think it might be a good use of their time, actually. Much better than impeaching Joe Biden. So I could see that as a more productive deployment of their time. Obviously, it would be up to the Republicans.”

Below find a rough transcript of Ask a Pol’s exclusive interview with Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), slightly edited for clarity.

TRANSCRIPT: Rep. Jamie Raskin

Matt Laslo: “Hey, sir. Were you ever able to follow up on your questions with UAP whistleblower David Grusch?”

Jamie Raskin: “I don’t know the answer.”

ML: “Yeah?”

JR: “I can find out for you.”

ML: “It just hasn’t really been on your radar? Well, ‘cause some members of the [House Oversight] Committee are asking for a Select UAP Committee.”

JR: “I understand that, yeah.”

ML: “Yeah? What are your thoughts on it?”

JR: “I think it might be a good use of their time, actually. Much better than impeaching Joe Biden. So I could see that as a more productive deployment of their time. Obviously, it would be up to the Republicans.”

ML: “Yeah. You haven't talked to [House Oversight Chair James] Comer about it?”

JR: “I have not spoken to Comer about that.”

ML: “And you wouldn't have any say on that?”

JR: “Look, I would…”

ML: “That's how the House runs?”

JR: “Put it this way — I prefer for them to be looking for UFOs in outer space than looking for UFOs on Hunter Biden's laptop.”

ML: “Yeah?”

JR: “So…”

Raskin laughs.

ML: “’Preciate you, sir.”
