EXCLUSIVE – A former U.S. Navy fighter pilot praised a new amendment that would require the federal government to disclose information on UFOs to the public and announced a whistleblower support program in an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital.
Ryan Graves, who also made history as the first active duty pilot to testify to Congress about unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs), said the legislation is a tremendous step forward in revealing what the government is keeping secret about UAPs.
“It truly is a Disclosure Act that will move this conversation forward,” he said.
Schumer said Friday that Americans have a right to know about “non-human” intelligences operating in the world.
“The American public has a right to learn about technologies of unknown origins, non-human intelligence, and unexplainable phenomena,” he said. “We are not only working to declassify what the government has previously learned about these phenomena but to create a pipeline for future research to be made public.”
In addition to those powers, the government could potentially “seize this technology by means of eminent domain if this bill or this act is not complied with.”

But critical to the Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) Disclosure Act of 2023 is witness testimony.
Graves, the executive director of Americans for Safe Aerospace (ASA), announced in a statement that he was launching a campaign “to support commercial aircrew and military UAP witnesses who want to share their accounts.”
Graves emphasized to Fox News Digital that there is “no organized process” for UAP witnesses and whistleblowers to apply to testify before Congress. “So if you are someone in the public, perhaps a veteran that has had experiences that they’ve witnessed and you don’t understand the process, there is really no services available right now.”
“We’re filling that gap,” he said.
“I don’t know who’s necessarily savvy on this from the perspective of candidates right now, but I expect them to be savvy on this in a few months,” he said.
