The Secret Service interviewed rapper Eminem over “threatening” lyrics against President Trump, according to documents obtained by BuzzFeed News as part of a Freedom of Information Act request.
The interview stemmed from the Secret Service being alerted to a 2017 ITK story covering lyrics included on Eminem’s album “Revival.”
“Time to bury him, so tell him to prepare to get impeached,” the 47-year-old performer, born Marshall Mathers, rapped of the commander in chief:
The Secret Service said the song was “exhibiting inappropriate behavior” and “threatens” their protectee, according to documents obtained by BuzzFeed,
Eminem also took aim at Ivanka and Melania Trump in various songs on the album.
In the song “Framed,” Eminem rapped:
“Donald Duck’s on as the Tonka Truck in the yard
But dog how the f— is Ivanka Trump in the trunk of my car
Gotta get to the bottom of it to try to solve it
Must go above and beyond, ’cause it’s incumbent upon
Me, ’cause I feel somewhat responsible for the dumb little blonde girl
That motherf—in’ baton twirler that got dumped in the pond”
The information provided by the Secret Service noted that it was “not the first time Mathers made threatening comments towards [Trump] and his family,” citing a 2017 freestyle rap.
Two days after the interview in January of last year, the Secret Service declined to refer the case to a federal prosecutor.
In a rap later that year, Eminem said he had met with Secret Service agents.
In his song, “The Ringer,” Eminem rapped:
“Cause Agent Orange just sent the Secret Service
To meet in-person to see if I really think of hurtin’ him.
Or ask if I’m linked to terrorists
I said, ‘Only when it comes to ink and lyricists.'”
