'I Am Not Suicidal': UFO Whistleblower Claims Threats to Himself and Family

A former head of the Pentagon's secretive UFO investigation department (turned whistleblower) claims his life is in danger.

Knewz.com has learned that Lue Elizondo, who allegedly left the Department of Defense in protest of the cover-up of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), took his concerns to the New York Times resulting in numerous threats against himself and his family.

According to The Good Trouble Show podcast host, Matt Ford, Elizondo claimed that he and “several other whistleblowers formerly associated with the UAP effort for the U.S. Government,” all faced some kind of harassment.

“I would like to make this perfectly clear to the American people,” Elizondo continued to say.

“I am not prone to accidents. I am not suicidal. I am not abusing drugs. I am not engaged in any illicit activities.”

“If something happens to me or my family members in the future, you will know what happened.”

A slew of whistle-blowers emerged following the 2017 New York Times exposé, Glowing Auras and Black Money—The Pentagon’s Mysterious UFO Program, and along with them, reports of threats and harassment (even if individuals directed their accounts and experiences up the chain of command).

According to Fox News, Congressman Tim Burchett, R-Tenn. who is a friend of Elizondo is aware of the threats. He has since indicated that he finds them alarming, noting that the protection allocated to whistleblowers like Elizondo is “a joke”.

“Lou is a dear friend of mine, and I take any threat against anybody seriously, especially against friends and somebody that has given so much to this country and to this issue [UFOs],” the lawmaker told the network.

“So, I'm very much aware of it, and I'm very much alarmed. I'm pursuing every avenue I can to get to the bottom of it.”

Ford on the YouTube podcast noted that “Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, Marco Rubio, and others passed legislation forcing the Pentagon to report to Congress on the matter,” but it did little good for the whistleblowers as the Pentagon was enraged by the article that exposed them for “lying all along.”

Another whistle-blower to come forward was David Grusch. He claimed that he had embarked on a four-year investigation during which he heard the testimonies of 40 witnesses and gathered “compelling evidence”.

One key assertion made by the former civil servant was the existence of a secret storeroom where non-human artifacts and items related to UAPs were stored.

He also claimed that during his 14-year tenure at the Department of Defense as an intelligence operative, he suffered numerous reprisals for leaking information.

Knewz.com reported previously that Grusch cited what he called administrative terrorism enacted by the Pentagon to deter these leaks.

He has also telegraphed fears for his safety after his sit-down with Congress. One such occasion was when he canceled an appearance with investigative filmmaker Jeremy Corbell on the Joe Rogan show.

On August 9, News Nation reported that Grusch contacted them, claiming that someone in the intelligence arena had leaked his history with “post-traumatic stress disorder, grief, and depression, specifically incidents in 2014 and 2018,” to the press—purportedly to discredit him.
