In a recent interview with CNN, John Podesta reiterated the intentions regarding UFO disclosure stated earlier by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Clinton had previously pledged that, if elected president, she will obtain and declassify as many records as the federal government has available.
Podesta is currently Clinton’s campaign chairman, and says he intends to hold her to her promise of disclosure if she is elected. He also feels the public is ready for disclosure: "The U.S. government could do a much better job in answering the legitimate questions that people have about what’s going on with unidentified aerial phenomena, and the American people can handle the truth, so they should just do a thorough search, and open it up."
Podesta had previously looked into the UFO issue when he was the White House Chief of Staff under president Bill Clinton. His enthusiasm for the subject hasn’t waned, having recently convinced Hillary of the issue’s importance. “He has made me personally pledge we are going to get the information out,” Clinton says. “One way or another. Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51.”
