Former President Bill Clinton made sensational claims about aliens during a new interview.

In a Wednesday appearance on the "Late Late Night with James Corden," Clinton said that while he was the U.S. President, he and Chief of Staff John Podesta, “made every attempt to find out everything about Roswell." He admitted that he even “sent people to Area 51 to make sure there were no aliens.”

He shared that he sent his National Security Advisor, the late Sandy Burger, to the mysterious Nevada Air Force base. Its legacy of secrecy has led to conspiracy theories about aliens that have made the site the center of American Unidentified Flying Object folklore, reported New York Post.

Clinton shared that he said they got to find out how they are going to deal with this because "that’s where we do a lot of our invisibility research in terms of technology." For instance, how they fly airplanes that "aren’t picked up by radar and all that," and so that’s why "they’re so secretive.” He added that there’s "no aliens that I know (of)." But a few years ago, the world’s leading astronomers told him that there’s up to a 95% chance that humans are not alone in the universe.

Clinton also said during the interview that to understand Presidents, one needs only to look to the preamble to the U.S. Constitution, reported UPI. He said that if you can define how the President defines "We, the people" and how the President defines "more perfect union" -- just those two things -- it will "enable you to evaluate the president, what was done and how you feel about it." According to him, the greatest Presidents in America were those who had a "steadily expanding view of 'We, the people' and of broadening and deepening of what constituted a more perfect union."

Talking about what he misses most about being the U.S. President, he quipped Air Force One. Clinton, who served as the U.S. President from 1993 to 2001, shared that what he misses most is the job. He shared, "John Kennedy once said that the great thing about the Presidency was that it strained every last capacity you have for making the right decision and helping the largest number of people and it was a daily challenge." The former President said that he misses the work as he loved it and every day was no less than a privilege to go to work.
