Reporters have learned that early Friday morning, a team of SWAT cops armed with rifles raided the home of the president of the Accuracy in Media watchdog group.
The operation included a breach on the home of the founder of the organization that sent "doxxing trucks" to Ivy League institutions embroiled in pro-Palestinian controversies, as the New York Post reported.
While Accuracy in Media CEO Adam Guillette was not present, local authorities called him early Friday to inform him that they had searched his North Florida home in response to a false report that he had pointed a gun at his wife's head.
Guillette, who was out of town with his wife to attend a wedding in Texas, told the Post that he thinks someone lied to the cops "to get me killed" in response to the recent campaign by Accuracy in Media.
The campaign included box trucks were outfitted with billboards exposing students and faculty allegedly involved in "horribly hateful, antisemitic proclamations" at Harvard, Columbia, and the University of California at Berkeley.
Footage of the Swatting
Exclusive footage from Guillette's home security camera was provided to the Post, showing armed police officers at his door.
Guillette remarked, “I’ve been getting threatening phone calls, emails, social media messages nonstop since our antisemitism accountability project began,” adding that he “takes serious precaution to ensure the safety” of him and his wife, who he said has been “incredibly supportive” of Accuracy in Media’s work.
Guillette wrote on X Friday, “If you antagonize enough antisemites, they will call law enforcement and tell them you have a gun to your wife’s head. Then a SWAT team shows up. Thankfully, we’re out of town.”

Response to the Doxxing Truck
Co-owner of Trending Politics Collin Rugg reported on the media company's actions that are believed to have prompted the swatting, saying, “JUST IN: The Harvard ‘doxxing’ truck is back and is showing up at students’ homes who reportedly signed a letter saying *Israel* was responsible for the Hamas terror attacks.

"Adam Guillette, the man responsible for the truck, says he just wants the neighborhood to know who the anti-Semites are in their communities. ‘In addition to educating their colleagues and neighbors on campus, everyone in their community should learn who the antisemites are among them,’ he said.
The political commentator went on to say "Law enforcement was called on Guillette’s truck however no action was taken. The homeowner called law enforcement. As is always the case, authorities explained that we’re not breaking any laws.”
