U.S. Rep. Tim Burchett said he believed a series of U̳F̳O̳ sightings were not Russian technology but rather developments that originated “out of our galaxy.”
Vladimir Putin Russia is not responsible for the U̳F̳O̳ herds reported by US Navy pilots, according to lawmakers. Burchett is having a hard time believing that the Russians are involved.
He says Putin would already own the United States if he had the advanced skills he reported that the pilot had seen.
Having dismissed that possibility, the congressman went on to argue that the phenomenon “has to be something that’s [from] out of this galaxy, just has to be, if in fact it is real.”
In a June 15 story, TMZ posted a video supposedly showing one of its reporters approaching Burchett somewhere near the Capitol and initiating the below-transcribed interaction, which centered on President Joe Biden’s first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin the following day:
TMZ: Congressman, I know right now with President Biden, he’s going to speak to Putin. … He’s going to ask them about the U̳F̳O̳ things and stuff like that.
Burchett: I think that’s ridiculous. If the Russians had U̳F̳O̳ technology, they would own us right now. They used to say, they’ve heard people talk about how the Nazis had it in the Second World War — if they did, they would have won.
That is ridiculous. It has to be something that’s, that’s out of our galaxy, it just has to be, if it is in fact is real.
TMZ: Congressman, you have always been a straight shooter. …It’s been bipartisan, but the one thing I’ve noticed is, it doesn’t matter which president it is, nobody ever talks…
Burchett: They always say they’re going to do something about it and then they get into office — and, honestly, I thought Trump was going to do something. I thought he was going to release the files. But, you know, they release these files that are redacted — it’s just a big blob of white out.
Clearly something is going on that, that we can’t handle. U̳F̳O̳s were in the Bible. Read Ezekial it talks about the wheel flying around. They’ve been around since we’ve been around and somebody needs to come up with some answers.
