Singer-guitarist Tom DeLonge announced earlier this year that he was leaving Blink-182 to focus on “a national security issue”
DeLonge has been taking his new work of searching for aliens very seriously. And now a Wikileaks email dump has revealed that the Blink-182 star corresponded with Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager about it.
Among the emails released by Wikileaks this month, there were at least two emails from DeLonge to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta. Incidentally, both were about extraterrestrial life.
In fact, The Wall Street Journal was first to report Podesta as a noted UFO enthusiast. Podesta also served as a White House adviser to presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.
He even said his biggest failure under Obama was “not securing the disclosure of the UFO files”. Subsequently, a third email from January 2016, shows astronaut Susan McCasland Wilkerson accepted an invitation to an event titled “DeLonge/Podesta Meeting”. Interestingly, it suggested that the space enthusiasts did meet.
DeLonge has been a believer for years, penning Blink-182’s “Aliens Exist” in 1999. He also created multimedia project “To the Stars”, the following year. It focused on unexplained UFO phenomena.
Clinton has said that, barring any threats to national security, she would open up government files about Area 51. Some people believe proof of extraterrestrial life is stored on this Nevada air force base.
