Less than a week after the National Aeronautics and Space Administration held its first public hearing one year into its study into Unidentified Flying Objects or Unidentifed Aerial Phenomena, "a former intelligence official turned whistleblower has given Congress and the Intelligence Community Inspector General extensive classified information about deeply covert programs that he says possess retrieved intact and partially intact craft of non-human origin."

According to a report published on the science website the Debrief on Monday by investigative journalists Leslie Kean and Ralph Blumenthal – who authored the 2017 New York Times exposé revealing the Pentagon's secret UFO division — David Charles Grusch "filed a complaint alleging that he suffered illegalretaliation for his confidential disclosures, reported here for the first time. Other intelligence officials, both active and retired, with knowledge of these programs through their work in various agencies, have independently provided similar, corroborating information, both on and off the record."

Grusch, "a decorated former combat officer in Afghanistan, is a veteran of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO). He served as the reconnaissance office’s representative to the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force from 2019-2021. From late 2021 to July 2022, he was the NGA's co-lead for UAP analysis and its representative to the task force," per Kean and Blumenthal.

Grusch spoke exclusively with News Nation about what he knows.

Recovery units "are retrieving non-human origin technical vehicles, call it spacecraft if you will, non-human exotic origin vehicles that have either landed or crashed," Grusch told correspondent Ross Coulthart. "I thought it was totally nuts and I thought at first I was being deceived, it was a ruse,” Grusch told Coulthart. "People started to confide in me. Approach me. I have plenty of senior, former, intelligence officers that came to me, many of which I knew almost my whole career, that confided in me that they were part of a program."

The outlet noted that it "confirmed Grusch's credentials and resume, but has not seen or verified the alleged proof he said he provided to investigators. Grusch said he can’t show NewsNation the evidence for national security reasons. Grusch also said he has not seen photos of the alleged craft himself, but has spoken extensively with other intelligence officials who have."

Nonetheless, Grusch said that "there is a sophisticated disinformation campaign targeting the US populist which is extremely unethical and immoral" and declared that "we're definitely not alone. The data points, quite empirically that we're not alone.”

On Tuesday, House of Representatives Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-Kentucky) informed News Nation that Congress will hold more hearings on UFOs/UAPs in the near future — and that his colleagues were intrigued by Grusch's accounts.
