Senator Josh Hawley said a recent UFO whistleblower’s report is “pretty close” to information he received in a briefing after the United States shot down a spy balloon and other unidentified flying objects this past winter.
The Missouri Republican said he wasn’t surprised, but he was “disturbed” by David Grusch’s claims that not only has the government found proof of but also covered up several “non-human” crafts and remains.
Grusch, a 36-year-old Airforce veteran, told NewsNation earlier this month that a top-secret military program found fully intact UFOs, or “unidentified aerial phenomena” (UAPs). Grusch, who previously worked as the National Reconnaissance Office’s representative to the UAP Task Force, said that the U.S. covered up several “non-human origin” crafts and “dead pilots.”
Newsweek reached out to Hawley via his website for comment. Grusch’s claims could not be verified by Newsweek.

The U.S. military declassified several videos of UAPs during an April Senate meeting, during which the Pentagon‘s All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) said that it is examining 650 potential UFO cases. However, AARO Director Sean M. Kirkpatrick said there is no proof of aliens or their crafts, stating: “AARO has found no credible evidence thus far of extraterrestrial activity, off-world technology, or objects that defy the known laws of physics.”
Grusch’s comments made headlines and went viral on social media, sparking a debate over whether extraterrestrials exist and how much the government truly knows.
