Former Blink-182 singer Tom DeLonge apparently had been emailing the Hillary Clinton campaign about the existence of UFOs.
DeLonge’s emails about UFOs became public in the latest WikiLeaks email dump this week. He emailed Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta at least twice from his personal account, asking to meet him in person and to meet high-level officials, reported the Wall Street Journal.
“I would like to bring two very ‘important’ people out to meet you in DC. I think you will find them very interesting, as they were principal leadership relating to our sensitive topic,” he told Podesta via email in 2015. “Both were in charge of most fragile divisions, as it relates to Classified Science and DOD topics. Other words, these are A-Level officials. Worth our time, and as well the investment to bring all the way out to you. I just need 2 hours from you.”
Podesta, 67, is a longtime advocate for the publication of government UFO files. In May 2016, he said that Clinton is ready to examine the issue, telling KLAS-TV: “I’ve talked to Hillary about that.”

“I think I’ve convinced her that we need an effort to kind of go look at that and declassify as much as we can, so that people have their legitimate questions answered,” Podesta said at the time.
The emails that DeLonge, 40, sent to him also showed that Podesta apparently took part in a documentary that DeLonge is producing.
In another email, he told Podesta that he’s been in touch with an official who was involved in the incident in Roswell, New Mexico—in which the U.S. government allegedly recovered an alien craft in 1947. The U.S. government has said it was a weather balloon.
The singer said he had been talking with Maj. Gen. William McCasland, who served in the Air Force.
“He mentioned he’s a ‘skeptic’, he’s not … He just has to say that out loud, but he is very, very aware—as he was in charge of all of the stuff,” DeLonge wrote in the email. “When Roswell crashed, they shipped it to the laboratory at Wright Patterson air force base. Gen McCasland was in charge of that exact laboratory up to a couple years ago.”
It’s not clear whether Podesta responded to the singer’s emails.
