The Presidential candidates have been going hammer and tongs on feminism and racism, but there is one thing they have not discussed - "alienism."

Recent Wikileak files say that Secretary Clinton had some discreet, silent meetings with ex-NASA astronaut, Edgar Mitchell, a member of the Apollo 14 mission and the sixth man to walk on the moon. She was accompanied by her campaign chairman John Podesta.

Mitchell argued that news on extra-terrestrial intelligence (ETI) should be open and transparent.

"We're arguably closer than ever to war in space. Most satellites orbiting Earth belong to the US, China and Russia. And recent tests of anti-satellite weapons don't exactly ease the scare factor," Mitchell wrote  in the email to Podesta. "It sounds like science fiction, but the potential for real-life star wars is real enough.

"Take a moment to think about everything satellites do. GPS, surveillance and communications all depend on them. And the Scientific American notes you can disable satellites without missiles. Simply spray-painting lenses or breaking antennas is enough."

Right from the time he had landed on the moon, Mitchell had been a vocal supporter of alien life. He had been totally outspoken about his convictions. He died in February, 2016.

Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate, is firm that she wants to get to the bottom of the secret of alien life after getting elected.

She said to a question by a scribe, Daymond Steer, even as she campaigned in New Hampshire: "Yes, I'm going to get to the bottom of it."

John Podesta, another avid ufologist, tweeted last year that he did carry a regret before he retired as counsellor to President Barack Obama.

He said: "Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files. #thetruthisstilloutthere".

On the other hand, Clinton's belief in aliens is not clear, still, she has said that "there is no threat to national security." She has also promised that she would "declassify" the American government's "X-Files" on alien life, if she get elected to Presidency.

Does she really believe they exist? She replied: "I don't know. I want to see what the information shows.

"But there are enough stories out there that I don't think everybody is just sitting in their kitchen, making them up.

"I think that people see things. What they see, I don't know. But we have got to try to give people information. I believe in that."
