A CONGRESSMAN has issued a chilling warning as he claimed “there’s something going on” after lawmakers received a classified preview of the Pentagon’s UFO report.
The highly anticipated dossier, due to be presented to Senators by June 25, examines whether decades of orb sightings by US Navy pilots are a national security threat.

Lawmakers refused to confirm if the findings reveal extra-terrestrial life following Wednesday's briefing, but Rep. Tim Burchett said: “Clearly, something’s going on that we can’t handle.”
He added: “I mean UFOs were in the Bible. Read Ezekiel, it talks about the wheel flying around.
“So, I mean they’ve been around since we’ve been around, and somebody needs to come up with some answers.”
Skeptics within the UFO debate think unmanned drones sent by America's adversaries may explain potential sightings, while "believers" think humans are being visited by extraterrestrial life.
Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney told the New York Post: “We take the issue of unexplained aerial phenomena seriously to the extent that we’re dealing with the safety and security of US military personnel or the national security interests of the United States, so we want to know what we’re dealing with.
Rep. Andre Carson, who chaired the briefing, said it was a “significant and timely topic” amid fears that unidentified aerial phenomena could pose a national security risk to Americans.
He told the Post: “We’re looking forward to having a public hearing at some point.
“I mean, there’s some national security concerns that we want to take into consideration.”
Congresswoman Val Demings said: "You know it's always about our safety and security — our national security is [priority] number one."
Other lawmakers appear to be glad that the stigma surrounding the UFO debate has "gone".
Rep Mike Quigley said: “Now that’s as big a change in policy as I’ve witnessed.”
US intelligence services officially closed the book on the phenomena in 1969 at the conclusion of Project Blue Book – which stated there was nothing to see regarding UFOs.
But, the Pentagon released three stunning UFO videos filmed by the US Navy over the past three years.
What is going on with UFOs in the US?
UFOS have stepped from fringe conspiracy theories to a genuine national security debate in the US.
Pentagon officials last year took the unprecedented step to confirm a trio of remarkable videos which showed US encounters with UFOs.
The debate is still open as to what the phenomena caught on film were – but it made clear to everyone, something is in the skies.
Perhaps the most striking was a video known as the “Tic Tac” – which showed an unidentified object being pursued by fighter planes.
The US also confirmed the existence of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) – a Pentagon programme set up to study UFOs before being disbanded in 2017.
However, it was replaced by the UAP Task Force in June 2020 after a vote by the US Senate Intelligence Committee.
Defence chiefs have since confirmed a number of leaked UFO videos and photos which were submitted to the Task Force for investigation.
Why this sudden rush for transparency?
No outside the secretive wings of the US government currently knows for sure.
And as a tacked on addendum to a 5,500 page Covid relief bill passed in December, the the Director of National Intelligence’s office was ordered to compile a report on UFOs within 180 days.
Former intelligence director John Ratcliffe has hinted the report will be a big deal – and we now just over a month away from its release.
The five-month deadline elapses in June, with some UFO lobbyists claiming it could be the “most profound moment in human history".
Footage appeared to show a mysterious orb buzzing around a US ship in 2004 off the coast of San Diego.
Former Lieutenant Commander Alex Dietrich said the UAP looked like a "Tic-Tac".
And, an unusual orb was also caught stalking the USS Omaha in July 2019.
Filmmaker Jeremy Corbell, who has been behind several leaks, told the Sun that UFOs have been kept covered up for decades as militaries around the world want to exploit “unbelievable” advanced technology.
He said: “Most of the public are not in the same position as militaries who want to exploit these technologies prior to admitting them – that is what they are trying to do, to make sure they have a technological advantage for warfare.”
Last month, intelligence agents appeared to rule out that the vast majority of reported sightings were not American military or other government technology, according to leaked conclusions published by The New York Times.
But, they appeared to leave open the hypothesis that technology might have been sent by Russia or China to harass US vessels.
Luis Elizondo, who led the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), previously told The Sun that the military "doesn't know" who is behind UFOs.
An unclassified version of the UAP report is set to be released to Congress by June 25.
It's expected that recommendations for further UFO research and funding will be included in the report.
But, it will still include one classified annex which is unavailable for the public to read.
