MORE, according to documents obtained by BuzzFeed News as part of a Freedom of Information Act request.

The interview with the rapper stemmed from the Secret Service being alerted to a 2017 ITK story detailing lyrics included on Eminem's album "Revival."


On one of the tracks, the 47-year-old performer, born Marshall Mathers, rapped of the commander in chief: “Time to bury him, so tell him to prepare to get impeached.”

The Secret Service, in the documents obtained by BuzzFeed, said the song was "exhibiting inappropriate behavior" and "threatens" their protectee. 

Eminem — a fierce critic of the president — also took aim at other members of Trump's family in various songs on the album, including Ivanka TrumpIvanka TrumpMelinda Gates tapped divorce lawyers in 2019 after Epstein links to husband: report The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Emergent BioSolutions - Facebook upholds Trump ban; GOP leaders back Stefanik to replace Cheney Ivanka Trump doubles down on vaccine push with post celebrating second shot MORE and Melania TrumpMelania TrumpJill Biden a key figure in push to pitch White House plans Petition calls for Jill Biden to undo Trump-era changes to White House Rose Garden Fox News's Bret Baier posts vaccination selfie MORE.

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 with authorities 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, but the agency never confirmed or denied any interview occurred.

"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,'" the Grammy Award-winner said in his song, "The Ringer."
