Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said it is possible that aliens have visited the Earth, and she would investigate Area 51 if elected.
Clinton made the comments at a campaign stop in New Hampshire last week, in which she told Daymond Steer of the Conway Daily Sun that she wouldn't rule out the possibility that aliens could have already visited.
"We don't know for sure," Clinton said.
She added that her campaign chairman, John Podesta, has encouraged her to look into Area 51, the top secret military base in Nevada, which is the subject of a host of alien-visitation theories.
"He has made me personally pledge we are going to get the information out," Clinton said. "One way or another. Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51."
