Florida rep to hold bipartisan conference on UAP transparency

Congresswoman Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fla.) announced she will host a bipartisan press conference on Thursday to discuss the lack of transparency regarding unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs) in the United States.

Luna said he will host a press conference Thursday at 12:20 p.m. to discuss “how the U.S. government has covered up UAP transparency” and “prevented the American public from knowing the truth about UAP.” Stated. She will be joined by Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.), Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), and Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-Fla.).

A handful of House members on both sides of the aisle have called for more transparency around UAPs, saying sightings could harm national security. Burchett led a House of Commons hearing on the issue and said in July that a lack of information about UAPs was contributing to a decline in public trust in the government.

Mr. Burchett has since doubled down on his claims of a Pentagon “concealment” of UAP-related information. Mr. Luna and Mr. Gates also spoke out about UAP transparency last year, with Florida congressmen telling military officials when lawmakers asked for details about the UAP ahead of a hearing in July. He has advocated for UAP transparency, including the possibility of such interference. origin.

“So if the Air Force and the Department of Defense think they’re above Congress, they’ve got to be thinking about something else,” she said at the time. “We told them that if they continue to withhold information, the American people will eventually have to face the truth.”

In July, three former defense officials testified before the House Oversight Subcommittee, including a former Navy pilot, a retired Navy commander, and a former Air Force intelligence official. Former officials stressed that the government was too secretive to acknowledge drone sightings and said the government may be collecting reconnaissance information about the United States.

Luna said the press conference will be streamed on her account on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.
