Secret Service on Nugent Meeting: 'The Issue Has Been Resolved


Ted Nugent's interview with the Secret Service over comments he made about President Barack Obama's re-election concluded Thursday, with the agency saying "the issue has been resolved" and that it "does not anticipate any further action."

"I met with two fine, professional Secret Service agents in [Oklahoma] today," Nugent, 63, said in a statement after the meeting. "Good, solid, professional meeting concluding that I have never made any threats of violence towards anyone. The meeting could not have gone better. I thanked them for their service, we shook hands and went about our business. God bless the good federal agents wherever they may be.”

Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary told the Washington Post after the interview that "the issue has been resolved" and the agency “does not anticipate any further action.”

Nugent said during an NRA convention over the weekend that if the president is re-elected in November, “I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."

He first revealed on Glenn Beck's radio program that he was set to meet with agents.
