Leaked Emails Reveal Former Astronaut Wanted To Meet With Obama Official About Alien Life


What does the Vatican know about alien life? And is there a threat of a war in space?

These are among the issues that a former astronaut wanted to discuss with John Podesta, who worked in the Obama administration and is now Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, according to new emails published Friday by WikiLeaks.

The hacked emails have already drawn a great deal of attention because they contain excerpts of what appear to be Clinton’s paid speeches to Wall Street executives. But extraterrestrial enthusiasts are particularly interested in two documents that focus on UFOs, an alien presence around Earth and a belief that the Vatican has some knowledge about all of this.

The emails are from Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the moon during the Apollo 14 mission in 1971. He wrote to Podesta on Jan. 18, 2015, asking for a meeting “ASAP” to discuss government disclosure of extraterrestrial life forms and zero point energy, an alleged alien technology that Mitchell strongly believed could be used as an unlimited source of infinite free energy for our planet.

At the time, Podesta was serving as a top adviser to President Barack Obama. He left the administration soon after.

The email indicated that one of Mitchell’s colleagues would also attend the meeting “to bring us up to date on the Vatican’s awareness of ETI [Extra Terrestrial Intelligence].”

After he left the space program, Mitchell founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences, dedicated to unlocking the secrets of the human mind. He was also very outspoken about his beliefs that Earth had been visited for many years by extraterrestrials, the UFO phenomenon was real and the truth about it all had been kept from the public.

Mitchell likely reached out to Podesta because of Podesta’s longtime interest in UFOs and criticism of the U.S. government for holding back information on the issue.

In the astronaut’s second email, sent on Aug. 18, 2015, he wrote that “non-violent ETI from the contiguous universe are helping us bring zero point energy to Earth. They will not tolerate any forms of military violence on Earth or in space.”

Mitchell expressed concern about a growing military presence in space and the threat of a space-based war between China, Russia and the U.S. involving anti-satellite weapons.

When Podesta stepped down in 2015 from his post in the Obama administration, he tweeted that his biggest regret about leaving the administration was some unfinished UFO business: “My biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the disclosure of the UFO files.” 

Podesta then went on to become Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman. It’s not clear if he ever replied to the emails, and Yahoo reports that he never met with Mitchell. The astronaut died in February 2016.

Mitchell’s concerns about UFOs, ETs and zero point energy raise several questions. What was he talking about when he suggested the Vatican knew something about ETI? (In recent years, several Vatican officials have suggested that the idea of actual aliens would most likely expand, rather than diminish, religion.) And did he really think there was a threat of a war in space?

Other WikiLeaks emails may contain more information from individuals who were trying to meet with Podesta to discuss various aspects of the UFO-ET connection. There are still thousands to pore through.

Perhaps one of them will be the real smoking gun.
