Tom DeLonge — best known as a founding member of pop punk royalty Blink 182 — has long been an outspoken proponent of his belief in alien life forms. However he took things next level when he set to contact Hillary Clinton‘s campaign chairman, in an attempt to discuss their shared interest in the chance of life on other planets.
DeLonge 1st emailed John Podesta — who conjointly served as Chief of Staff to former President Bill Clinton and Counselor to President Barack Obama — back in 2015, requesting a meeting with the high-ranking official to talk UFOs, in step with the latest WikiLeaks email reveal via the Wall Street Journal.
“I would really like to bring two very ‘vital’ people out to satisfy you in DC,” DeLonge wrote. “I suppose you will notice them very fascinating, as they were principal leadership regarding our sensitive topic. Both were in charge of most fragile divisions, because it relates to Classified Science and DOD topics. Different words, these are A-Level officials. Worth our time, and likewise the investment to bring all the method out to you.”
The “Aliens Exist” singer reached out to Podesta once a lot of in January, claiming to be in direct contact with former Air Force official General McCasland, who DeLonge alleges has valuable information referring to the purported UFO crash of 1947 that took place in Roswell, New Mexico.
“He mentioned he’s a ‘skeptic’, he’s not. I’ve been operating with him for four months. I just got done giving him a four hour presentation on the whole project a few weeks ago,” DeLonge wrote. “Trust me, the advice is already been happening on how to try and do all this. He simply has to mention that out loud, but he is very, terribly aware — as he was in command of all of the things.
“When Roswell crashed, they shipped it to the laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base,” DeLonge continued. “General McCasland was in command of that precise laboratory up to a couple years ago. He not solely knows what I’m attempting to achieve, he helped assemble my advisory team. He’s a very important man.”
To DeLonge’s credit, Podesta’s had a longstanding, public interest in UFOs and doable alien life forms.
He famously tweeted regarding it back in 2015, after parting ways that with the Obama administration — though the tweet currently seems under senior advisor Brian Deese’s account — writing, “Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once once more not securing the #disclosure of the U.F.O. files. #thetruthisstilloutthere.”
