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.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
