A spokeswoman for Senator Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, confirmed the briefing took place.
“If naval pilots are running into unexplained interference in the air, that’s a safety concern Senator Warner believes we need to get to the bottom of,” Rachel Cohen told Politico.
Donald Trump said he too has been briefed on UFOs but admitted he doesn't believe in them.
The Navy itself didn’t comment on the latest meeting but has in the past confirmed that it provides briefings for the Congressional members by Naval Intelligence officials as well as aviators.
Earlier this year, the Navy revealed there have been reported sightings of UFOs hovering above top-secret military bases and flying near aircraft.
The daily sightings came over the course of 2014 and 2015 and were reported to the Pentagon and Congress.
Briefing requests by Congress members have been on the increase since it was revealed the Pentagon’s shadowy Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) still investigates UFO sightings,
