Top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee Jim Hines (D-CT) said Sunday on Meet the Press that he has "real concerns" about Biden not being more "forthcoming" about the flying objects recently shot down by the military as they flew over U.S. airspace.

Hines explained that Congress had been extensively briefed on the Chinese spy balloon shot down February 4 over the Atlantic Ocean, but that Congress had not been in session since subsequent objects were shot down in Michigan, Alaska and Canada.

While he admitted that the administration might not know a lot about the subsequent objects yet, he still said he felt the administration was holding out on lawmakers.

"I have real concerns that the administration is not more forthcoming with everything it knows. The problem with the second and the third objects were shot down in very remote areas, so my guess is there’s just not a lot of information out there yet to share,” he said.

There have been similar reactions from other lawmakers on both sides of the political aisle, and it seems that the Biden administration will have a lot to answer for regarding the number of mysterious objects in U.S. airspace and why so many of them are now being shot down.

At least we know it's not aliens.
