Special Counsel Jack Smith was the target of an attempted “swatting” attack at his Maryland home on Christmas Day.

“Swatting” is the practice of making a false report to police, typically claiming a violent crime has been committed.

Smith is handling two indictments against former President Trump, including alleged mishandling of classified documents and efforts to overturn the 2020 election. (Trending: Fox News Star Accused Of Major Scandal)

U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan said, “Four-year service as Commander in Chief did not bestow on [Trump] the divine right of kings to evade the criminal accountability that governs his fellow citizens.

Presidents do not get a “lifelong ‘get-out-of-jail-free’ pass,” she added.

Trump’s lawyers argue for “absolute immunity” for actions taken while in the White House, but a U.S. District Judge ruled against this, stating that former presidents do not enjoy a “lifelong ‘get-out-of-jail-free’ pass.”

The U.S. Supreme Court recently rejected Smith’s appeal to expedite their assessment of the immunity claim.
