Amid the bustling crowd of congressional staffers and reporters, an air of mystery lingered on Tuesday, July 11, 2023, as Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) refrained from public comment on the recent revelations by UFO whistleblower David Grusch.

A member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Lankford was in the limelight, exiting an all-Senators classified meeting held in the covert depths of the Senate SCIF (sensitive compartmented information facility). The briefing, as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer revealed, marked the first-ever classified Senators Only gathering specifically centered on the subject of artificial intelligence.

In the pulsating heart of US Capitol, Lankford was en route to the Senate floor when he was intercepted by Breaking News Streams correspondent. The conversation that ensued initially revolved around the issue of Chinese spy balloons before taking a sudden detour to the topic of David Grusch, the UFO whistleblower who has become a person of interest in recent weeks.

However, much to the curiosity of those present, Lankford chose to remain largely silent on the subject. “There’s just a lot of unanswered questions there still. Honestly,” was the Senator’s only comment on the Grusch matter.

This brief exchange unfolded as Lankford was more than amenable to carrying on a discussion about artificial intelligence with the reporter, even inviting him to continue the conversation on a Senators Only elevator. This openness regarding AI, in stark contrast to his reticence on the Grusch issue, served to further amplify the intrigue surrounding his comment.
