Hillary Clinton made headlines when she promised to investigate the claims that UFOs are being housed in the secret government facility known as Area 51. The Democratic presidential hopeful has said that she would "get to the bottom" of UFO claims, and that Area 51 would no longer be a secret under her administration. However, there is one problem with Mrs. Clinton's promise to get to the bottom of the situation -- her husband already knows what is going on at Area 51, and disclosed it to the public.
The Conway Daily Sun reports that Hillary Clinton is promising voters that she will "get to the bottom" of UFO claims and will find out what is really going on at the top secret government facility in Nevada called Area 51. She says that her interest in the UFO phenomena is spearheaded by the chairman of her campaign, John Podesta. She claims that Podesta is an UFO-enthusiast, and that he has made the presidential hopeful promise to get to the bottom of the issue if she is elected. Clinton even goes as far to say that she would "get the information out one way or another," noting that it may even require a "task force" to go into Area 51.
"He has made me personally pledge we are going to get the information out. One way or another. Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51."Clinton also revealed that she is a possible believer in extraterrestrial life. She says that we may have even already been visited by aliens, but that there is no way to really know.
"I think we may have been (visited already by aliens). We don't know for sure."
Clinton: Aliens may have already visited us https://t.co/ZXsQ46Sz8x pic.twitter.com/W1S2BmPQkMThough Clinton seems to be jumping on the UFO bandwagon for the sake of her campaign chair and not personal interest, she could just look to husband and former POTUS Bill Clinton for answers. Bill Clinton appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel show in 2014 and the topic of UFOs and aliens was brought up. During the conversation, Clinton indicated that he "wouldn't be surprised" if aliens visited Earth, and says that he just hopes it isn't an "Independence Day scenario" when they do arrive. Though the former POTUS seemed unsure of whether life existed beyond Earth, he did note that as a former U.S. leader, he does know what is at the infamous Area 51.

Clinton and Podesta Continue to Promise UFO Files Disclosure - https://t.co/ndDwkaCJxc pic.twitter.com/KZQxA9zNKLFormer President Clinton told Kimmel that "there are no aliens" at Area 51. He said he knows what is at the facility, and it has nothing to do with UFOs. Clinton explained that Area 51 houses stealth equipment for the government, and that workers at the facility must stop about an hour away from the facility to put on special gear before entering.

In fact, Bill Clinton says he released all the information he could surrounding the secret facility due to the popularity and demand. So, with Bill Clinton acknowledging that Area 51 has nothing to do with UFOs and is instead a military facility for stealth equipment, it is not known why Hillary says she will investigate the facility herself.
However, some are concerned for Clinton's safety if she actually decides to release information surrounding government knowledge of alien life or UFOs.
UFO Blogger Warns 'CIA Would kill Hillary Clinton If She Tries To Release UFO Files, Like They... https://t.co/z0Rzgzap5ZDo you think Hillary is simply using Area 51 to gain voter attention or does she truly not believe her husband Bill when he says "are no aliens" at Area 51?
