Why was Trump even notified?
I suppose it was because he was president, but I feel as if the aliens should have bypassed him.
The UFOs have asked not to publish that they are here, humanity is not ready yet. Trump was on the verge of revealing, but the aliens in the Galactic Federation are saying: Wait, let people calm down first. They don’t want to start mass hysteria. They want to first make us sane and understanding.(from Wiki)

According to Isaac Ben-Israel, current chairman of the Israel Space Agency, Eshed went "too far" with his claims, but "his seriousness shouldn’t be questioned and his standing as a leader in his field remains intact"

Hain Eshed certainly has rational credentials, but the topic is incredulous and un-evidenced. What does your rational scientific mind make of it all?

Re: Witness testimony?
I might add that though I am a believer and prone to accept supernatural stories, I will put on my thinking cap (critical thinking and skepticism) and evaluate it from that perspective.
1) Lammys credentials. Being a critical thinker and science mind himself, I would assume that Lam too is skeptical. Being involved in Real Estate, Lam also has a financial interest in verifying(or squashing) a story such as this one. In my mind, his jury is still out.
2) Plausibility. A story such as this is implausible but would gain interest thee more that actual verifiable independent confirmations of such a story are confirmed. In addition, a mention of the alleged origin of the female figure may be persuasive.
For instance, was there an untimely death in the past history of this house?
3) Gullibility. Again, as I have said before, some people..(myself included) are more likely to accept unevidenced answers than are those who are fully skeptical by nature and evidence based thinkers.
