Tim Pool, the host of the viral podcast “Timcast,” told Daily Wire host Candace Owens Thursday that his private residence and his studio have been “swatted” a whopping eight times since he did an interview with firebrand Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene this year.
“We’ve been swatted eight times this year. It started on January 6 after we hosted Marjorie Taylor Greene. The first thing that happens is we’re recording our show — we do it live, we film live and then all of a sudden the door to the studio pops open, which is to my right side and I see a bunch of cops,” Pool recounted.
The “swatting” on Jan.6 was streamed live as it unbelievably happened while they were on the air.
“The cop walks through the room, does a sweep, then ends up leaving. And then we’re all confused as to what just happened. And we got confirmation from our crew downstairs that we were swatted,” the popular podcaster recalled.

“Swatting” occurs when someone prank calls the police in an effort to get a SWAT team to descend on a person they don’t like or don’t agree with at a certain location. It is very dangerous and could get someone killed.
“January 6 was the first time it happened and then about a week later we got swatted again. Which was the same thing — this time they made a bunch of wild claims, the police show up again. Now they’re kind of aware of what’s going on. We’re now at eight,” Pool revealed.
The caller in the first incident claimed two people had been shot and killed on the premises. He also said that he was going to kill more people and himself if he wasn’t stopped.
“We had multiple agencies. We believe three different agencies. We had local city cops, we had the sheriff, and we had state police here. We are lucky. We are very lucky,” Pool remarked.
"I heard a boom" said the guest about when the cops showed up.

The second time Pool was swatted was seven hours after he criticized a Soros-backed cancel culture activist named Nandini Jammi, who had previously announced a “day of reckoning” for right-wing pundits. It is unknown if the two incidents were connected.
“We will prosecute to the fullest extent considering the warning signs. Do not come here without permission,” Pool warned at the time, referring to a man who came onto his property. “In order to get anywhere near our property, you have to drive about an acre. He’s seen on camera entering the house after without permission.”
We got Swatted again

Last night a man trespassed on our property, bypassing a large warning sign, and then entered our house.
He entered just after our guests came in confusing our staff.
Anyone entering this way risks serious bodily harm from our dogs and security.
He was promptly removed

“They started targeting my private residence,” Pool claimed.
Owens asked him, “How come they haven’t been able to find out who it is?”
“I think they might know,” Pool bluntly told her. “But building a case might take time and they want to make sure they’re doing it right. My understanding is that I’m pretty sure the feds are involved cause we also had the bomb squad show up.”
“I suppose if this was any other news outlet, any other personality, especially if it was establishment press, it would be front page,” he asserted. “I’m not going to let people just do this and act like we shouldn’t care about it.”
