==Secret Service Threats]]

The joke prompted an investigation by the Secret Service, and the Associated Press recently got more documents after filing a Freedom Of Information Act request...

Two days after Mulaney's appearance, law enforcement officials contacted Thomas McCarthy, the global chief security officer and senior vice president at NBC Universal to "express the agency's desire to discuss the aforementioned incident with attorneys for Mulaney."...

The investigation into Mulaney was opened in March and closed in December, five days after the comedian talked about the situation on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

"I guess they opened a file on me because of the joke, and I have to say — am I stoked there's a file open on me? Absolutely. Did I enjoy it in the moment? Not so much," Mulaney said on the show. "But the person vetting me was very understanding that the joke had nothing to do with Donald Trump [because] it was an elliptical reference to him. I didn't say anything about him."
