CSPAN suspended its political editor Steve Scully after he cracked under pressure and admitted that he lied about his Twitter account being hacked, after posting a strange Tweet to the shortest serving press secretary – actually 10 days – in President Trump’s administration.
Scully’s Tweet to Anthony Scaramucci, who emerged a never-Trumper after being fired for incompetence by the President in 2017, suggested he was asking for his advice on the debate scheduled with CSPAN.
Trump was the first to call out Scully, after he tried to cover-up his lie that he tweeted the question to Scaramucci by saying his account had been hacked.
Trump said Thursday in a Tweet, “I was right again!”
“Steve Scully just admitted he was lying about his Twitter being hacked,” said Trump. The Debate was Rigged! He was suspended from CSPAN indefinitely. The Trump Campaign was not treated fairly by the ‘Commission.” Did I show good instincts in being the first to know?”
Scully is the host of the Washington Journal. He was selected to moderate the now-canceled town hall event. A tweet sent from his account last week suggested he had reached out to Scaramucci.
Scully issued his first statement Thursday addressing the issue.
“For several weeks, I was subjected to relentless criticism on social media and in conservative news outlets regarding my role as moderator for the second presidential debate, including attacks aimed directly at my family,” Scully wrote in a statement to CNN.
He said “this culminated on Thursday, October 8th when I heard President Trump go on national television twice and falsely attack me by name. Out of frustration, I sent a brief tweet addressed to Anthony Scaramucci. The next morning when I saw that this tweet had created a controversy, I falsely claimed that my Twitter account had been hacked.”
“These were both errors in judgment for which I am totally responsible. I apologize,” Scully said.

Carter on Hannity: House Judiciary Committee will subpoena DOJ over Biden classified docs
Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the classified documents being found in multiple places of both work and residence of Joe Biden from his time in the Obama administration. Carter states “One of the big questions from the House Judiciary Committee is how did President Joe Biden’s legal team stumble upon the classified documents that were found at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center.”
“Why hasn’t the FBI been vocal and transparent about the fact that they searched that office and found the classified documents on November 2nd” Carter questions. Additionally, they have not yet “disclosed to the House Committees whether or not they had searched the house in Delaware or Rehoboth Beach to the full extent,” says Carter who noted the committees wanted the information by January 27th.
Carter spoke to sources who told her they will be serving subpoenas to “personnel from the Department of Justice because Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to answer specific questions they sent to him on January 13th.”
