Disclosure Diaries Update #19

This past week in Disclosure:

December 20th – Rep. Tim Burchett describes various UAP-related accounts that have been related to him in private

Rep. Burchett appeared in an OAN interview, and described interactions with multiple pilots and veterans who have spoken with him in private about their UAP encounters. Some of these people ostensibly included sitting members of Congress (with military backgrounds).

Watch the clip here.

December 21st – Spokesperson from Rep. Burchett's office provides an update on the January 12 SCIF briefing with the IC IG

"The event that is happening on January 12, 2024, will be a classified members-only briefing with the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community (ICIG), Thomas Monheim [without participation by the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Defense]. This briefing was set up by the House Oversight Committee. It is open to members of the House Oversight Committee, but if other House members or senators are interested they may notify the Committee and would be welcome to attend. David Grusch will not be in attendance; we do not have a SCIF scheduled for a briefing with David Grusch currently, but the UAP Caucus is continuing to push for one."

December 22nd – President Biden signs the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2024 into law, which includes several UAP-related provisions

President Biden signed the NDAA FY24 into law and released an accompanying statement, which called out one of the UAP provisions (amongst others) specifically as a potential point of concern.

"Certain provisions of the Act, including sections 856(c), 1221(a)(7), 1269, 1687 (UAP-related), 7315, and 7351 would require the President and other officials to submit reports and plans to committees of the Congress that will, in the ordinary course, include highly sensitive classified information, including information that could reveal critical intelligence sources or military operational plans or could implicate executive branch confidentiality interests.

The Constitution vests the President with the authority to prevent the disclosure of such highly sensitive information in order to discharge his responsibility to protect the national security. At the same time, congressional committees have legitimate needs to perform vital oversight and other legislative functions with respect to national security and military matters.

Accordingly, it has been the common practice of the executive branch to comply with statutory reporting requirements in a way that satisfies congressional needs pursuant to the traditional accommodation practice and consistent with due regard for the protection from unauthorized disclosure of classified information relating to sensitive intelligence sources and methods or other exceptionally sensitive matters, as well as to preserve the confidentiality of internal executive branch deliberations, particularly those with respect to decisions bearing on the Nation’s national security.

I believe the Congress shares this understanding, and my Administration will presume that it is incorporated into statutory reporting requirements of the kind at issue in the Act."

December 22nd – Rep. Andre Carson indicates his interest in being the ranking member on any Select Committee on UAP

Speaking to Matt Laslo from Askapol on the topic of a potential Select Committee on UAP, Rep. Andre Carson mentioned he would be interested in serving as the ranking member.

Notably – Rep. Carson chaired the House Intelligence Committee’s public hearing on UAP in 2022 — which was the first public hearing on UFOs in over 50 years.

December 22nd – Boris Johnson, former PM of the United Kingdom speaks out on the UFO topic

In an interview published on the Dailymail, Boris Johnson touches on the UFO topic, with the following statement:

"And so I might as well tell you now — you faithful ufologists who have made it so far in this article — that there is no evidence whatsoever that is available to the British government to suggest that alien life forms have ever existed."

December 24th – Reports of a large UAP flying low over populated areas globally...the object seems to be emitting a faint "ho-ho-ho" noise while dropping conspicuous packages down chimneys late at night...

Merry Christmas, y'all!

Things to look out for in the near future:


  • According to Senator Gillibrand – a public hearing in line with AARO's latest report can be expected soon, saying –"I'll probably have another hearing aligned with that public report.”
  • Members of Congress were meant to discuss UAP-related matters in a SCIF with the Intelligence Community Inspector General on the 16th of November, however this session has been delayed until January 12.

Beyond / unknown

  • Following the UAP hearing on the 26th of July, Members of Congress have called for a select committee with subpoena authority, to “go about the task of collecting information from the Pentagon and elsewhere” on unidentified flying objects. There have been conflicting messages from various Members of Congress on whether this is likely to happen anytime soon.
  • Reps. Moskowitz, Luna, and Burchett have repeatedly stated their intent to hold field hearings to overcome stonewalling from the Pentagon and military establishment

    "I think we [Congress] should try to get into one of these places [housing UAP evidence]...and if they won't let us in I think we should have a field hearing right outside the building...and the military will have to explain why that is." – Rep. Moskowitz (D)

    It is currently unknown when we might expect that to occur.
  • Several journalists have indicated that first-hand witnesses of the alleged UAP legacy programs are in the process of providing testimony/evidence to the relevant authorities (e.g. the IC IG) and/or are on the verge of making public statements in the near future (Example 1, example 2, example 3, example 4)
  • David Grusch has received additional clearances through DOPSR to discuss some of his (alleged) first-hand knowledge of Legacy programs. He has mentioned he may be covering more of this information in an upcoming Op-Ed
