Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) says Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s new UAP measure seems to have more to do with his predecessor, Harry Reid, than with UFO whistleblower David Grusch.
“You have to ask Sen. Schumer the genesis of his interest, but I think it was because he kind of took the mantle from Sen. Harry Reid and wanted to just continue the rights of the public to know information,” Gillibrand tells Ask a Pol. “Very similar to the JFK requirements of revealing information over time.”
While Gillibrand says her and Schumer’s new bipartisan measure to shed light on the federal government’s UFO / UAP (Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena) programs is separate from her ongoing investigation into Grusch, she says the two complement each other.
“It's not the same work we're doing in the Armed Services Committee,” Gillibrand says. “But this is a good measure that very much dovetails with the work that we do with both Intel. and Department of Defense.”
In our exclusive interview, Gillibrand gives Ask a Pol subscribers a glimpse into her investigation into David Grusch.
“It's very interesting, and we're continuing to probe and get information. No developments yet,” Gillibrand says. “But if I had them, I would give them.”
While Reps. Tim Burchett (R-TN) and Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) have faced some pressure, eye rolls and shade ahead of next week’s House UFO hearing, Gillibrand says she’s got no concerns with the House investigation.
“No,” Gillibrand replies. “No.”
