More hacked emails from the democratic party were releases by WikiLeaks in the last few days, in particular, the emails of Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta. Podesta is a name that is often attached to the UFO issue, because he has made it no secret that he has a an interest in the topic. So it should come as no surprise that among the thousands of leaked emails, a few reference UFOs and extraterrestrials.

Although some of the emails may indicate that Podesta had some sort of communication with the senders about UFOs, most of the emails are chance references to UFOs or aliens in news headlines or individuals referencing ETs to make a point.
For example, two emails appear to be updating Podesta on recent headlines. One from November, 2015 includes a news article and some headlines, one of those headlines referencing a Navy missile test that was mistaken for UFO. Another, from December, 2014, references Dennis Kunich as being a politician mostly known for claiming to have seen a UFO, a fact that was used against him during his presidential run in 2008.
Two other emails involved the idea of extraterrestrial life in emails making points. In an email discussing the dangers of nuclear terrorism, it refers to a concept several scientists have referenced regarding the ability of an intelligent civilizations to not blow itself up with their own super-weapons. The idea is that we are at a stage in which we can either blows ourselves up with nukes, or somehow figure out how to get along and continue to evolve socially and technologically.
The second email, arguing the dangers of German immigration, pokes fun at alien abductees. It states: “Germany’s Immigration Disaster Deniers have as much credibility as alien abductees spirited away in a UFO with Bigfoot at the controls.”
Of course, there are the emails from believers, some being a bit more fringe than others. The oddest one is from a man who wants Podesta and others to warn Hillary that the scientists have it all wrong when it comes to climate change. He argues that the Earth’s climate issues are due to the return of Planet X, also referred to as Nibiru. He says it comes around every 3600 years or so, and is due to pass near the earth again soon, but we cannot detect it because it’s in the Sun’s glare.

Another email, from 2015, appears to be someone representing former astronaut Edgar Mitchell, emailing Podesta in order to setup a meeting regarding Zero-point energy and government disclosure regarding extraterrestrial visitation. The email was sent by an address used by Terri Mansfield. The email mentions Terri in the third person, so some have guessed that the email was sent by Mansfield’s colleague, Suzanna Mendelssohn.
In the email, the sender mentions that Mansfield would be present during the meeting to discuss the Vatican’s awareness of extraterrestrial Intelligence. This is not too surprising given the mission listed on Mansfield website. The site states: ” We educate humans about our work with our nonviolent obedient-to-God ETI, Extraterrestrial Intelligence, from the contiguous universe whose mission is to work with our scientists to bring zero point energy here for the purpose of extending life on our fragile Earth.”
The website goes on to claim that they fundraise only with billionaires.
There is no indication whether or not Podesta scheduled this meeting, or if Mithcell had anything to do with the email. However, Mitchell was into these sorts of topics, and he often discussed his belief in extraterrestrial visitations, so it is entirely possible he asked Mansfield to send the email. Mitchell passed away in February of 2016, so he will not be able to confirm either way.
The emails I have listed so far were found by OpenMinds.tv contributor Shepherd Johnson. However, The Wall Street Journal found a few more. These were from a gentleman who was able to meet Podesta and discuss UFOs. Namely, rock star Tom DeLonge.
DeLonge is another famous UFO enthusiast. In fact, his interest in UFOs has been credited as the reason he left his uber-successful band, Blink 182. Since his split with the band, he has been working on fiction and non-fiction media projects regarding UFOs and extraterrestrials.
He has already release a book titled Sekret Machines, which he says contains some information that is based off of interviews with deep throat informants that have secret information regarding the government’s knowledge regarding UFOs. In July, 2015, DeLonge posted to his Facebook pictures of a video shoot of an interview he conducted with Podesta for a yet to be released documentary on UFOs.

It is still unknown what DeLonge and Podesta discussed, but the WikiLeaks emails give a bit more insight. In the first email, sent on October 26, 2015, DeLonge gives Podesta an update on his projects and asks for a meeting so DeLonge can introduce him to two individuals DeLonge claims are very important people.
Things are moving with the project. The Novels, Films and NonFiction works are blooming and finishing. Just had a preliminary meeting with Spielberg’s Chief Operating Officer at DreamWorks. More meetings are now on the books-
I would like to bring two very “important” people out to meet you in DC. I think you will find them very interesting, as they were principal leadership relating to our sensitive topic. Both were in charge of most fragile divisions, as it relates to Classified Science and DOD topics. Other words, these are A-Level officials. Worth our time, and as well the investment to bring all the way out to you. I just need 2 hours from you.
The second email was sent on January 25, 2016, and is an update to Podesta regarding DeLonge’s meeting with “General McCasland.”
He mentioned he’s a “skeptic”, he’s not. I’ve been working with him for four months. I just got done giving him a four hour presentation on the entire project a few weeks ago.
Trust me, the advice is already been happening on how to do all this. He just has to say that out loud, but he is very, very aware- as he was in charge of all of the stuff. When Roswell crashed, they shipped it to the laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. General McCasland was in charge of that exact laboratory up to a couple years ago.
He not only knows what I’m trying to achieve, he helped assemble my advisory team. He’s a very important man.
It would appear DeLonge is referring to Major General William McCasland who is the commander of the U.S. Air Force’s research laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Wright-Patterson AFB has a rich history in UFO folklore as it was the home of the Air Force’s official UFO investigations from 1947 to 1970.
Again, DeLonge’s emails were the only side that was leaked, whether or not Podesta responded is unknown. However, if DeLonge is correct, and McCasland knows something he is not sharing with the public regarding UFOs and/or Roswell, that would be very interesting indeed.
It should be mentioned that Podesta is claiming that some of his emails released by WikiLeaks are not real. He claims some of them have been changed. However, he says he is too busy to comb through all of them to identify which are real and which are not.
DeLonge has yet to comment on these emails, but you can be sure, we will be monitoring his social media.
UFO researcher Grant Cameron says he spoke with a representative from TerriMansfield.com. They claim the email was sent on Mitchell’s behalf, and although there was some discussion with one of Podesta’s aides, a meeting never took place.
Also, an email to someone close to Podesta regarding news of a group seeking UFO disclosure was also found.
