US Congressman Tim Burchett is among the few government officials who has been actively speaking on the UFO phenomenon and publicly shared his longstanding view that the government has been withholding information about UFO sightings and otherworldly aircraft, technology, and materials.
Rep. Burchett supported the UAPs Disclosure while criticizing the UFO hearing held on May 17, 2022. He expressed his dissatisfaction with the lack of information collected by the US Department of Defense on reported sightings. He also accused the government of concealing information concerning UAPs.
Moreover, in an interview with Newsweek, Rep. Burchett claimed that recovered UFO technology may be “being reverse-engineered right now,” but “we don’t understand” how it functions. “We have recovered a craft at some point, and possible beings. I think that a lot of that’s being reverse-engineered right now, but we just don’t understand it,” he continued.
However, the Defense Department has not confirmed the nature of the remaining three objects, which were targeted by US fighter jet missiles over Alaska, Canada, and Lake Huron, Michigan.
On February 18, 2023, John Greenewald of The Black Vault submitted a FOIA request to release the classified and unclassified photos, videos, cockpit footage, and personal cell phone footage taken by pilots and provided to the DoD, among other things. However, on March 21, 2023, the U.S. Air Force responded and denied the release of all the requested materials. Greenewald wrote that it remains unclear how many photos or videos were found or are being withheld.
In response to Rep. Burchett’s interview with Newsweek, investigative journalist Ross Coulthart revealed on “That UFO Podcast” that US politicians had been given top-secret briefings on evidence of anomalous craft.
Coulthart claims that at least two congressmen in “key” government positions have been briefed and that the topic has become a priority for both sides of Congress. He suggests that the issue of UFO sightings and briefings has become a significant concern for US politicians, with both sides of Congress attempting to outdo each other.
Coulthart said Senator Kirsten Gillibrand from the Democrats has pledged to secure funding for the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), an office designed to share UFO intelligence between branches of US defense. “Up pops Tim Burchett and Matt Gaetz from Florida basically saying they’ve just had a secret briefing in Florida about video or some kind of imagery [that was] shown by the ‘commanding general’ of a base.”
Two Republican congressmen, both sitting on key oversight committees, have been given top-secret briefings where they were shown evidence of anomalous craft flying very close to US aircraft.

Rep. Burchett shared an interesting account of a US Navy Veteran on Project Unity who claimed to have seen a huge craft. Burchett told Jay Anderson that he received a call from a former colleague while he was out of town. He was an older gentleman, probably close to 80, and he called Burchett “Timbo.”
“I knew who he was, so I said, ‘Hey.’ I thought he was going to talk about little green men and alien abductions, but then he told me a story he had never shared with anyone except his wife.
He had been in the Navy and was on a ship, which I believe is a destroyer, in the middle of the ocean in the mid to late 1950s. A submarine came up to meet them, and they watched it fire a missile, which was likely one of the first underwater missile firings since World War II. After that, they were getting ready to go about their activities when a huge craft, which he described as two city blocks in size, appeared. It hovered over them silently and was shaped like a classic saucer.
He said there were something like portals or openings around the craft, and then it just disappeared without a sound. When they got back to port, three men in suits – I assume from the CIA or Military Intelligence – debriefed him and told him he had not seen anything. It was a matter of national security, and if he repeated it, he could be put in prison.”

Moreover, it is obvious that some individuals may speak condescendingly or make jokes about the topic, as stated by Burchett in an interview with Knox News. However, it has been reported that photos have been shared with him by pilots and those who have had military credentials. “I’ve met with scientists, some of the top people in the world, that tell me that we have extraterrestrial craft in our airspace on a regular basis,” Burchett added.

On January 12, 2023, the Office for the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) issued an unclassified report on UAPs. The report revealed that there have been 510 UAP sightings documented, with an increase of 366 sightings since the 2022 report. The new data includes sightings reported after the 2021 report and an additional 119 sightings that were discovered or reported late, but still fall within the previous report’s time frame.
Following the report’s publication, Rep. Burchett spoke out, alleging a cover-up since the 1940s and stating his distrust of the government’s actions. He believes that the American people are capable of handling the information and is calling for the release of all related information. Burchett emphasized the importance of discovering what is occurring regarding UAPs.
“I just think open records are the best thing for any kind of government. I think the more secrets you have, the more it creates corruption and other things,” Burchett told Knox News. He expressed skepticism about the claims made in the recent government report.
Burchett stated that he had been informed by reliable sources that the government possesses evidence of extraterrestrial material but has continued to publicly deny its existence. “According to (the federal government), our little minds just can’t handle (the truth), and that’s that arrogance,” he said. “I just don’t buy that.”
He believes that more individuals will come forward with information about UAP sightings now that whistleblower protections have been put in place for those who report this information. “I think it’s gonna shock people about the vastness of our universe. You really, honestly, think we’re the best that God can do?” Burchett asked.
