Last week the US Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) released a declassified report to congress regarding unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), or as most people call them, UFOs. On Wednesday, June 30, Discovery Channel’s John Gates will host UFOs Declassified: Live, where he interviews experts that include NASA Administrator Bill Nelson; former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid; former Counselor to President Obama John Podesta; and retired senior intelligence officer Bob Wallace. The special will include more experts and guests, all weighing in on the UFO evidence provided by the United States government so far. With the event being live, it’s a must-see event.
