It turns out the truth was out there.
David Grusch, who led analysis of unexplained anomalous phenomena (UAP) within a US Department of Defense agency until this year, also told the hearing that 'non-human' beings had been found during this program.
“I was informed, in the course of my official duties, of a multi-decade UAP crash retrieval and reverse-engineering program, to which I was denied access,” Grusch told the committee.
Grusch filed a whistleblower complaint in 2022 and said that he had been prevented from accessing secret government UFO programs.
At the hearing, when he was asked whether he 'feared for his life' after blowing the whistle, he said: "Yes definitely".
He added: “I am hopeful that my actions will ultimately lead to a positive outcome of increased transparency.”
Now, Demi Lovato, singer and, long-time believer in extraterrestrials, has weighed in.
“I mf told y'all," she wrote on an Instagram story, sharing a news article about the hearing.
In 2021, Lovato starred in a documentary called Unidentified, where she went on a road trip to investigate the truth about perceived UFO phenomena.
While promoting the documentary, the singer said she didn't think people should call extraterrestrial beings 'aliens' anymore because it's 'derogatory'.
“I think that we have to stop calling them aliens because aliens is a derogatory term for anything,” she said to E! News.
“I call them ETs."
At the time, she told Pedestrian TV, the show was a 'natural next step' for her.
“I wanted to film everything that goes down when I go and search for these UFOs so that my fans can come along for the ride,” she said.
Lovato also said that she doesn't think ETs are the earth destroying conquerors they're made out to be in Hollywood movies.
“I think that if there were beings that could harm us, we would have been gone a long time ago,” she said.
“I also think that if there are civilisations that are of consciousness in other dimensions, which has given them the technology to be able to travel through space, I think that they are looking for nothing but peaceful encounters and interactions because like I said, if they wanted us gone, we would have been gone a long time ago!”Featured Image Credit: Rich Fury/Getty Images for OBB Media.
