Documents: Cops wanted to hit ‘Meet the Press’ then-host David Gregory with gun charge
JANUARY 23, 2015
According to an affidavit obtained by Judicial Watch, a Washington Metropolitan Police Department detective said David Gregory should have been arrested for illegally possessing a high-capacity magazine on his then-show Meet the Press in December 2012. Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit against the DC government with Legal Insurrection to obtain government documents regarding the non-prosecution of Gregory. DC’s attorney general Irvin Nathan failed to prosecute him since he thought Gregory did not have criminal intent. Read more about all of this here.

Despite the request, D.C. attorney general Irvin Nathan declined to prosecute in the case. He said that his office “determined to exercise its prosecutorial discretion to decline to bring criminal charges against Mr. Gregory, who has no criminal record, or any other NBC employee based on the events associated” with the broadcast.
