Tennessee Representative Tim Burchett described the House Oversight Committee's meeting with members of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as "elusive" as lawmakers continue to push for answers on unidentified flying objects (UFOs).

House members were briefed Thursday on NASA's independent report regarding UFOs, also known as unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), that was released earlier this month. Congressmen on both sides of the aisle have demanded greater transparency from the Pentagon regarding the issue of UAP after hearing from three witnesses in late July who testified about their experiences with unexplainable phenomena while working for the Defense Department.

But Burchett, a Republican who was one of the leading voices ahead of July's hearing to push for additional Congressional oversight on the issue of UAP, said that he left Thursday's meeting with NASA "disappointed," telling his followers in a video message to X, formerly Twitter, that the report "didn't say a whole lot to me."

"My colleague [Alabama Representative] Gary Palmer asked about classified stuff at NASA, and they said, 'We don't have anything classified,'" Burchett said regarding the meeting.

According to the congressman's video, when pressed further about the issue of classified information, the representatives from NASA gave a "very elusive" response.

"And so, what I think they've done is, they sent these two folks in here, like the Pentagon did, that have very little knowledge of the issue," Burchett continued. "So they can say they can hold up their hand before Congress and swear that they know nothing about the issue, and it doesn't exist."
