Episode in the RAW:
Many forget (like me, initially), the chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI), is an ex officio member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.*
On July 19, I asked Chair Reed if he had looked into UFO whistleblower David Grusch.
“No, I have not,” Reed replies.
We then briefly — but tellingly — discuss Chinese spy balloons and UAPs, as Reed invites me on his senator’s only elevator, which takes us to the 3rd floor before I bellhop him where he needs to be, on the 2nd floor so he can vote on the Senate floor.
*Armed Services ranking member, in this case Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS), is also an ex officio member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
