Republican congressman Tim Burchett from Tennessee’s second district asserts that the US government is concealing evidence of extraterrestrial spacecraft. His allegations come in response to claims made by a whistleblower last month, who declared that the government was withholding information about alien vehicles.

Burchett, speaking to the Washington Examiner, suggests that such concealment might have been happening since the infamous Roswell incident in 1947, or perhaps even earlier.

David Charles Grusch, a former Department of Defence analyst, made headlines in June when he told the Debrief that the government had in its possession physical evidence of “intact and partially intact” extraterrestrial vehicles. Moreover, Grusch claimed that this evidence was being illegally kept from Congress.

Burchett expressed his belief in Grusch’s claims, stating, “I think there’s a lot that’s going to be out there.”

Pointing to the testimony of numerous pilots, astronauts, and other credible individuals, Burchett underscored the overwhelming evidence that suggests a governmental cover-up. He further argued that the lack of information available is due to the fact that those who could provide answers have long since left their positions.

The US government, on the other hand, has refuted Grusch’s allegations, offering little comment on unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAPs) – the official term for UFOs – citing national security concerns. Burchett, however, views this as part of the ongoing cover-up.

Burchett calls for greater transparency from the government regarding UAPs, asserting that the public has a right to know about these events. He dismisses suggestions that these phenomena could be attributed to Russia or China, arguing that their behavior in global politics would be different if they had such advanced technology.


NASA’s independent study group on UAPs presented its first findings in May, which included video footage of a metallic, spherical object flying over the Middle East desert. Most government officials, when commenting publicly, suggest that UAPs are likely foreign surveillance devices or weather balloons.

The Roswell incident of 1947, which Burchett referenced, began with the discovery of metallic and rubber debris in Roswell, New Mexico. Initially, the Army announced they had found part of a ‘flying disc’. However, this was quickly retracted and replaced with the explanation of a weather balloon. Conspiracy theories continue to circulate around this event, despite the government’s assertion in 1994 that it was a military balloon for detecting Soviet nuclear tests.

Burchett, alongside Representative Anna Pauline Luna, is currently spearheading the House Oversight Committee’s investigation into UAPs. No hearing date has been confirmed as yet.

When questioned why the US government would suppress evidence of alien craft, Burchett suggested the motivations are ‘greed and power’. He also expressed his belief that the government might attempt to discredit Grusch and others bringing these allegations to light.

In previous statements, Burchett has alleged that the US has ‘recovered a craft at some point, and possible beings’, and that UFO technology may already be in the process of being reverse engineered.
