NEW: Matt Gaetz confirms classified briefing

“We can confirm that we received a briefing with Rep. Luna. We have no comment on the contents of that briefing at this time,” a spokesman for Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) sends Ask a Pol.

Who?

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) — Co-Chair Congressional UAP Caucus

Ask a Pol asks:

“A birdie told me that you had a briefing with Mr. Gaetz and you saw bodies?”

Key Luna: 

“I cannot discuss these things, you know that,” Luna exclusively tells Ask a Pol. “I'm sure we'll have field hearings. No comment.”
