Mr McKinnon hacked into computers owned by the Pentagon and NASA, and was looking for evidence of UFOs.
Mr Orrell, 56, made some pretty fanciful claims and said he would “sure like to see what Gary saw in those files”.
When asked what information he thought the two US departments might hold he said: “I heard reports that he saw evidence that the US Government had captured UFOs and was working with aliens in an underground base.”
He added: “It seems with the amount of sightings escalating around the world, that contact may be just around the corner.”
Mr Orrell said he was no stranger to unexplained phenomena, and sent us a photo of a group of UFOs, dubbed ‘The Inaja Formation’, which he snapped in San Diego, in 1990.
