The attacks against anyone affiliated with President Trump continue…
Host of War Room Steve Bannon was in the middle of a live broadcast when a swat team suddenly ran through his home.
According to reports, an anonymous person called the police claiming someone inside Bannon’s home was armed and shot someone.
When police arrived no such thing was happening and it was concluded the call was a false report.
Last month popular podcaster Tim Pool wasalso swatted due to the fact an angry liberal made a false police report.

The Post Millennial broke the story:
Armed police responded to a false report of a shooting and flooded former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon’s Capital Hill row house Friday morning around 10:45am.
The Washington Post reports that police shut down streets near the Supreme Court and the Capitol Building for about one hour.
The Post reported that police initially said they had encountered a person who was claiming to be armed, and who appeared to be suffering from a mental health crisis. No weapon was found an no injuries were reported in that incident.
A DC police spokeswoman later said someone had called a crisis hotline and reported that a man inside Bannon’s row house in the area of the 200 block of A Street NE was armed and had shot someone.

The Daily Beast added these details:
Steve Bannon’s Washington, D.C., townhome was “swatted” on Friday, causing police to swarm his property over a false report that an armed man had shot someone inside.
“Police shut down streets near the Supreme Court and the Capitol for about one hour, prompting fears of an active shooter,” The Washington Post reported. “About 12:30 p.m., police reopened the streets after determining that there was no shooting, no weapon, no threat and no victim.” A D.C. police spokesperson told the newspaper that someone had called in a false report of a shooting inside his home on A Street NE. Bannon didn’t return The Daily Beast’s request for comment on Friday afternoon.
“The police were terrific,” Steve Bannon says after a massive police presence cleared his street. @DCPoliceDept just provided a briefing saying there was a false 911 call of a shooting on this block. MPD did not name Bannon’s house as a target. pic.twitter.com/VhBvGcrMi1
