Secret Service to interview Ted Nugent

 

The Secret Service will interview Ted Nugent for his comments about President Obama, according to a law enforcement official, but this source cannot confirm the exact date at this point. Nugent has said he will meet with the Secret Service Thursday.

The Secret Service has previously released this statement:

"We are aware of the incident with Ted Nugent, and we are conducting appropriate follow-up," spokesman Brian Leary said. "We recognize an individual's right to freedom of speech but we also have a responsibility to determine and investigate intent. "

At a National Rifle Association conference, Nugent said, "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year." He added, “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their hands off in Nov. Am I, any questions?”
