Having carefully reviewed all of the facts and
circumstances of this matter, as it does in every case
involving firearms-related offenses or any other potential
violation of D.C. law within our criminal jurisdiction, OAG
has 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 December 23, 2012 broadcast.
It would have been nonsensical to go after Gregory. He only got the benefit of the doubt because he was a DC political journalist who was literally interviewing Obama last week. And it was nonsensical to go after Swartz. But he did not get the benefit of the doubt.
