WASHINGTON D.C. (INTELLIHUB) — Last Wednesday White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked by a reporter if President Barack Obama would like to beat Hillary Clinton to the punch, after “she promised to get to the bottom of the UFO and Area 51 conspiracy,” by releasing any information to the public on the super secret Area 51 facility.

Earnest commented back to the reporter saying that he was not “aware of any plans that the president has to make public any information about” the facility and that he forgot his “Area 51 briefing book.”

Earnest did say he was aware that Obama has publicly joked about the facility before, but said as of yet he knows of no plans for the POTUS to talk about it.

Area 51 has been a topic of controversy for a long time.
