The watchdog that oversees the United States’ myriad intelligence agencies has found that the claims that there are elements within the U.S. government that are illegally hiding recovered UFOs from Congress, being made by UAP whistleblower David Grusch, to be to be “urgent and credible.”

In an opinion piece published on The Hill, former U.S. State Department analyst Marik von Rennenkampff says that “a knowledgeable source confirmed to me that the intelligence community inspector general found ‘allegations that there is a [UFO crash retrieval] program [to be] urgent and credible.'”

The Office of the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), formed under the authority of the 2010 Intelligence Authorization Act, operates under the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and is responsible for conducting “independent and objective audits, investigations, inspections, and reviews to promote economy, efficiency, effectiveness, and integration across the Intelligence Community,” according to the Office’s Wikipedia entry.

One aspect of David Grusch’s story that appears to be frequently overlooked is that despite claims that he is offering no evidence that these secretive UAP recovery and back-engineering programs exist, his story is indirectly backed up by other officials, such as retired Army Reserve Colonel Karl E. Nell, who also worked alongside Grusch as the Army’s Director for the UAP Task Force from 2021 to 2022, as verified by Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal as part of their investigation into the story.

Further verification comes from the fact that Grusch has filed a formal complaint regarding the U.S. government’s UAP retrieval activities with the ICIG; filing a fraudulent claim with the ICIG carries not only a substantial fine, but also potential jail term—a serious incentive for Grusch to be forthright about the situation. As it is, the evidence Grusch supplied the ICIG is compelling enough for the office to consider the case “urgent and credible,” suggesting that he is indeed telling the truth.

Added to this, Grusch is also being represented in his case against the unnamed parties that are accused of conducting retaliatory actions against him by Charles McCullough III; while McCullough is currently senior partner of the Compass Rose Legal Group, he also has the distinction of being the first person appointed as Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, a position confirmed by the Senate in 2011.

Grusch’s complaint was not only signed by McCullough, but also the managing partner of his firm; presumably, both of these high-profile attorneys would have investigated Grusch’s claims before doing so, considering the serious ramifications of attaching their names to a case that, if fraudulent, could bring potentially career-ending consequences.

On June 9, Compass Rose Legal Group issued a statement saying that they had “successfully concluded its representation of former client David Grusch” in regards to “his reasonable belief that elements of the Intelligence Community improperly withheld or concealed alleged classified information from the U.S. Congress.”

“The firm filed a narrowly-scoped whistleblower disclosure with the Intelligence Community Inspector General (“ICIG”) and associated personnel matters—and had represented Mr. Grusch since February 2022,” indicating that they had been facilitating both the harassment allegations and UAP cover-up cases with the ICIG on Grusch’s behalf.

The statement went on to say that the members of the firm were not privy to any of “the specifics of the alleged classified information” that Grusch claims to have been in possession of, as “the substance of that information has always been outside of the scope of Compass Rose’s representation.”

Compass Rose also stated that recent “media articles misstate the scope of the firm’s representation” and asked that the affected articles be corrected; The Debrief’s head science writer, Christopher Plain, wrote that they had “not been contacted by Compass Rose in regard to any requested corrections in their reporting,” indicating that Kean and Blumenthal’s representation of Compass Rose’s involvement appears to have been accurate.

Congress is also taking Grusch’s allegations seriously, and intends to hold a hearing on the issue. In a statement released to NewsNation, House Oversight Committee spokesman Austin Hacker said: “In addition to recent claims by a whistleblower, reports continue to surface regarding unidentified aerial phenomena. The House Oversight Committee is following these UAP reports and is in the early stages of planning a hearing.

“The National Defense Authorization Act for 2022 created the All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office which coordinates among the Department of Defense, the intelligence community, NASA, and other federal agencies to study UAPs. Americans, who continue to fund this federal government work, expect transparency and meaningful oversight from Congress.”

While we weren’t handed the proverbial ‘alien ashtray’ that some are calling for as proof of the existence of non-human intelligences here on Earth, the paper trail investigated by numerous parties, spearheaded by Blumenthal and Kean, keeps pointing to the veracity of David Grusch’s claims.

  1. UPDATE: In the latest episode of Weaponized, Jeremy Corbell and George Knapp have revealed that the reason for Compass Rose’s conclusion of their relationship with David Grusch is because the firm only represents actively-employed government employees, and Grusch left the government to be able to speak freely about what knows.

    To that end, Compass Rose senior partner and former IC Inspector General Charles McCullough has left the firm so that he can continue representing Grusch–a major move considering his position at the firm.

    Corbell and Knapp report that they have been working with Grusch for over a year; they were the first journalists that Grusch approached, but he wanted the NYT to be the platform to break the story.

  2. As you can imagine, I’ve been all over this, and I just got back to listen to this one. It just goes to show, even more, the veracity of Grusch’s claims, and all that he has been through to get the information out, while also trying to protect himself.

    As for the NYT, they’ve obviously gotten the message to back off.

    Weasels, indeed…
