Tom DeLonge sent at least two emails to Clinton’s campaign manager about the unexplained phenomenon, The Wall Street Journal said Monday.
The Journal said DeLonge’s outreach to John Podesta was revealed in WikiLeaks’s recent latest dump of hacked emails.
The first message shows DeLonge promising in 2015 to introduce Podesta to two credible sources on UFOs.
“I think you will find them very interesting, as they were principal leadership relating to our sensitive topic,” he says. "Both were in charge of most fragile divisions, as it relates to Classified Science and [Department of Defense] topics.
“Other words, these are A-list officials. Worth our time, as well as the investment to bring all the way out to you.”
The second communication finds DeLonge detailing his work with a former military official on UFO research.
“He just has to say that out loud, but he is very, very aware — as he was in charge of all the stuff,” he told Podesta of his contact in the 2016 message.
“When Roswell crashed, they shipped it to the laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. General McCasland was in charge of that exact laboratory up to a couple years ago.”
DeLonge was referencing the conspiracy theory that the U.S. government recovered an extraterrestrial vehicle from crash in Roswell, N.M., in 1947. The military maintains the incident resulted from a surveillance balloon that crashed there.
The Journal noted it remains unclear if Podesta ever responded to DeLonge’s overtures about UFOs.
The newspaper added WikiLeaks’s latest dump did confirm Podesta is participating in a documentary DeLonge is producing, however.
Podesta joked about his failure to discover the truth about UFOs upon exiting the Obama administration last year.
“My biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files,” he tweeted on his final day as a counselor for President Obama.
Clinton, who is now the Democratic presidential nominee, suggested in January that aliens may have already visited Earth.
