Hillary Clinton is ‘Interested’ in UFOs; will Investigate the X-Files when President

Voters from different planets

Hillary Clinton and an alien's that's obviously not going to vote for her in November.

Who would have thought? Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton astounded viewers of Jimmy Kimmel Live by declaring she's "interested" in UFOs and plans to look into the "X-Files" about them once she's elected President of the United States.

Add that to Clinton's massive knowledge trove about policy and things political. And extraterrestrial.

And, by the way, the feds no longer refer to unidentified flying objects as UFOs. The new acronym for these celestial phenomena, said Clinton, is UAP or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.

"I would really like us to go into those files and hopefully make as much of that public as possible," said Clinton of what she'd do about UAPs when elected president. "I'm interested."

Asked by Kimmel why she wanted to go there when her husband, Bill, when he was president said he found nothing to confirm UFOs, Hillary replied, "I'm gonna do it again."

Bill Clinton replied to an almost similar question about UFOs when he was president.

"I had people go into the records at Area 51 to make sure there were no aliens out there. I had the Roswell papers reviewed," he said.

On another TV talk show, Hillary revealed more about her interest in UAPs. She said she's interested in these intriguing mysteries that have refused to die despite government studies dismissing most of these sightings as proof alien spacecraft are visiting the Earth.

Clinton, however, refused to state categorically if she believes UAPs exist.

But Clinton appears to have held this interest in UAPs for a while, a belief that's been reinforced by persons close to her. Last March, her presidential campaign chairman John Podesta claimed he'd convinced Cinton to declassify UFO files.

 "I've talked to Hillary about that. There are still classified files that could be declassified," said Podesta.

"I think I've convinced her that we need an effort to kind of go look at that and declassify as much as we can, so that people have their legitimate questions answered. More attention and more discussion about unexplained aerial phenomena can happen without people -- who are in public life, who are serious about this -- being ridiculed."

Podesta believes "the American people, quite frankly, can handle the truth."
