Hillary’s campaign manager’s leaked UFO emails

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.

DeLonge writes:

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.”

DeLonge writes:

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.

UPDATE 10/10/2016

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.

UPDATE 10/11/2016

A new discovery may indicate that Podesta, DeLonge and General McCasland did meet to discuss UFOs. A meeting acceptance from a woman named Susan McCasland Wilkerson was sent to Podesta on January, 24, 2016, the day before DeLonge’s email about General McCasland was sent. The invitation acceptance was part of the batch of Podesta emails released by WikiLeaks recently. It is unknown who Susan McCasland Wilkerson is, but the title of the meeting was “DeLonge/Podesta Meeting.” Did DeLonge, who we know has interviewed Podesta regarding UFOs, meet with the former commander of the research labs at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base to discuss UFOs? Hopefully, one of the parties involved will confirm or deny whether this meeting took place. We’ll keep an eye on these interesting developments. Keep checking back for more updates.


Susan McCasland Wilkerson can be found on Facebook. She is the wife of McCasland, who goes by the his middle name, Neil. He can also be found on Facebook.


Grant Cameron has posted on Facebook the link to a WikiLeaks email that includes the actual invitation to a meeting from Podesta to McCasland, DeLonge, a man named Rob Weiss, a man named Michael Carey, and a special assistant to Hillary’s campaign, Milia Fisher. The email was sent on January 24, 2016, and the meeting was set for January 25, 2016 via Google Hangouts.

Rob Weiss can be found on LinkedIn, where his job title is listed as Executive Vice President & General Manager Advanced Development Programs (Skunk Works) at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics. Skunk Works is the group that works out of Area 51, among other places, and builds top secret advanced aircraft.

Cameron believes the other person invited is retired USAF Major General Michael Carey. According to his USAF bio, Carey was the Special Assistant to the Commander, Air Force Space Command, Peterson Air Force Base, which is also the home of NORAD. Petersen is at the base of the famous Cheyenne Mountain.

Although the meeting was scheduled by Podesta, and McCasland accepted the invite, it still has not been confirmed whether or not the meeting took place, or, if it did, who was in attendance besides Podesta and McCasland.

Combing the files, I also found an email from Fisher informing him that DeLonge had requested a meeting with himself, another person of interest, and Steven Spielberg in November of 2015.


Cameron has released his research on these emails. He claims he was told by a third party that the Edgar Mitchell’s emails were on Mitchell’s behalf.

UPDATE 10/13/2016

Apparenlty, Podesta was open to a Skype meeting with Mitchell. According to a new WikiLeak email, Podesta gave Mitchell’s people some times he would be available.


In an email dated November 6, 2015, an aide to Hillary says she was disappointed that Jimmy Kimmel did not ask her abut UFOs during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.

In the email, Podesta asks how her appearance went. The first paragraph of the response reads:

She was charming, got lots of laughs and worked in a lot of message, including climate change. He didn’t end up asking her about UFOs! She was very disappointed. She practiced UAPs for 5 minutes beforehand.


Two more. In the first email, a man named Gabriel Beck is informing Podesta of an article on a Canadian UFO sighting. In the second, Podesta tells a lobbyist named Jim Davidson there is “more to come” in regards to UFOs in response to an email regarding the attention Podesta is getting on the UFO issue.

UPDATE 10/18/2016

More correspondence from Edgar Mitchell and his colleagues to Podeta’s office have been posted. They all are related to Mitchell’s people attempting to setup a meeting with Mitchell, Podesta and, ultimately, Obama. One email in particular has gotten some UFOers excited. In it, Podesta’s aide responds to a request to meet Obama and Podesta saying Podesta would like to meet Mitchell first. The email reads:

John would likely take this meeting alone first before involving the President, so let me ask him if he can do this in August. He’ll be in town Aug 11 – 22. Is Dr. Mitchell planning to be in town then?

Some have assumed this means Obama is in the loop rand even in charge of UFO secrecy. As we mentioned before, a meeting never took place. Rebecca Hardcastle, who’s name and email address appears in the emails, wrote an article to clarify these emails. You can read it at rebeccahardcastlewright.com.

Keep up to date on Mitchell emails as they are released at this link.

As for what Podesta knew, one of his closest confidants regarding UFOs is Leslie Kean. Kean wrote the New York Times bestselling book UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record. A group of emails show correspondence with Kean, demonstrating how close they were. She has indicated in the past that Podesta does not have a trove of secrets, although he does have a strong interest in the topic.

There are a couple more emails from Tom DeLonge, but none of them offer much more information than what we provided in our recent article on this topic, which has been updated. To keep checking for new emails on DeLonge, check this link.

  1. You do realize that HC and Podesta are completely playing you just to hope that all UFO people will vote for her don’t you? Clinton’s will do and say anything to get a single vote..it’s not just Clinton’s either it’s most politicians…UFO files..if there are any left and not destroyed will never be realized…ever. Only way stuff gets out is if it’s been digitized and gets hacked. I can assure you with 100% fact these files will never ever be released. I’m no fan of Trump either but it’s a little disappointing that this site and your podcasts have been more or less pushing for Hillary just because you think she will release UFO files..have you ever asked anyone in the Trump camp their thoughts?

  2. We are not pushing for Hillary, we are reporting UFO news. She and her staff are the only ones who have discussed UFOs. If Trump or his staff had discussed UFOs, we would cover that as well.

  3. if it doesn’t happen before the next inauguration we’re all f***ed but what do I know, right?!?

  4. People level of ignorance is so astonishing that I believe -generally speaking – we humans deserve better than cover up
    It is just too important and frankly I feel immense annoyance and frustration knowing more about this cover up than the average human population.
