Lawmakers, including Rep. Tim Burchett, received a classified briefing on UFO sightings, which he believes provided validation to prior testimony on unexplained aerial phenomena. Burchett expressed frustration at the lack of transparency and believes the Pentagon is withholding information. He plans to have more hearings and gather a list of witnesses, but will not disclose their names for privacy reasons. Lawmakers also asked about allegations by Air Force veteran David Grusch, who shared exclusive details with NewsNation and testified in Congress about his concerns regarding non-human spacecraft and a secret UFO crash retrieval program. The government is said to have recovered non-human spacecraft of exotic origin, though this information includes classified material that Grusch could not disclose publicly. This briefing has energized frustrated individuals and more hearings are expected to take place in the future.
