ted-nugent-barack-obama-threat-nraTed Nugent can apparently rest easy after a Thursday (April 19) visit from Secret Service agents who wanted to quiz him about some potentially threatening statements he made about President Obama.

“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year,” said Nugent at a National Rifle Association convention last weekend.

Nugent has denied that any threat to the president was intended and, he says after the meeting, the issue has been resolved.

“I met with two fine, professional Secret Service agents in OK today,” he says in a statement. “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.”

A Secret Service official confirms the same to MSNBC.
