Rep. Tim Burchett maintains that the Pentagon is deliberately withholding important information on the topic.
Despite this month’s release of a declassified 11-page report by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) on UFO cases investigated by the Pentagon in 2022, Burchett believes that there is still a concerted effort to withhold critical information pertaining to the UFO phenomenon.
“This thing is a huge cover-up, for whatever reason,” he told NewsNation.
“And I just feel like America is ready, we need to know, and to stop with all the shenanigans.”
In particular, he cites the seemingly impossible maneuvers exhibited in footage recorded by US Navy pilots of the UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) sighted off the coast of the United States.
“If you were human and make the turns that have been seen in some of this footage, you would literally turn into a ketchup package,” he said. “I mean, you would be gone.”
Burchett doesn’t believe that the withholding of information on UFOs is a new thing, either.
“I don’t trust government,” he said. “There’s an arrogance about it.”
“I think the American public can handle it and they need to release everything.”
