Hillary Clinton says barring any national security risk, she would like to open up the government files on Area 51 to the public if she is elected president.
“I would like us to go into those files and hopefully make as much of that public as possible,” she told Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night on his late night ABC talk show. “If there’s nothing there, let’s tell people there’s nothing there.”When Kimmel followed up by asking what she would do if she discovered there was actually something alarming in the files, Clinton replied: “Well, if there is something there, unless it’s a threat to national security, I think we ought to share it with the public.”
Area 51 is an Air Force facility in Nevada that was only recently acknowledged by the U.S. government. Some conspiracy theorists believe it is where the government houses secret information about aliens and UFOs.
Kimmel seems to be somewhat infatuated by aliens. When Bill Clinton appeared on his show in 2014, he pressed the former president to reveal what he learned in classified briefings about extraterrestrial life during his years in the White House.
