|Federal Judges - Tatel Top Left|
In Late December 2015 reporter Daymond Steer in Conway, New Hampshire took up John Podesta's challenge to ask Hillary Clinton about the aliens. It created a story that went around the world.
Now, in the stolen John Podesta emails, we are seeing the first reaction to Hillary's first mention of UFOs in the 2016 campaign. (She would get two more questions - one from Jimmy Kimmel in March, 2016 and one from the early morning NYC radio talk show "The Breakfast Club" in April 2016.
In a Wikileaks email on January 7, 2016 Ann M. O'Leary, a senior policy adviser in Hillary Clinton's 2016 Presidential Campaign writes Podesta. As well as mentioning the fact that Hillary had talked about promising UFO openness, she raised the name of a very prominent man in Washington who was also interested in UFOs. The man was Judge David Tatel who has been a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since 1994.
Judge Tatel & John - This article on Hillary's comments about extraterrestrial life made me think of you two and remind me to connect you.
|Judge David Tatel|
John - As I was telling David the last time I saw him, the two of you are the biggest believers in ET life who I know and I think you'd enjoy talking with one another. I know that neither of you have much time, but I think you'd have a fascinating time discussing it if you ever get together!

On January 11, 2016 Judge Tatel wrote an email to Podesta, copying O'Leary, where he expressed happiness that Podesta was also interested in extraterrestrial life.

Subject: Re: ET Life
I'm delighted to hear from Ann that you too are interested in extraterrestrial life. If you'd ever like a break from politics, let me know and we can find a way to get together to talk about this fascinating subject. In the meantime, you might want to watch NOVA's latest film,"Life's Rocky Start," this Wednesday on PBS. I saw a screening of the film last week at the Carnegie Institution. The film is based on some important new research about the origins of life on Earth and leaves no doubt that life must exist throughout the universe.
I'm also very excited about Yuri Milner and Steve Hawking's announcement of a $100 million program to support SETI.
I know the people involved in this project: They're all serious radio astronomers and deeply devoted to the search for extraterrestrial intelligence.
Looking forward to talking to you.
We now await Podesta's reply in upcoming Wikileaks emails. This may not happen as it appears we are near the end of the Podesta email leaks. There are many missing emails which raises new questions about who was behind the hacking and if certain emails were withheld.
