Moderators of the Presidential debates have come under heavy scrutiny in 2020.
And this past Thursday, things only got worse.
That’s because this debate moderator just confessed to the FBI one shocking truth that left Donald Trump feeling vindicated.
This past week, so-called journalist Steve Scully tweeted Anthony Scaramucci, an infamous Trump critic, asking how to deal with the President.
Scully – who interned under Joe Biden – had been selected to moderate the second Presidential debate by the supposedly “non-partisan” Commission on Presidential Debates.
Most Americans saw straight through this scheme and recognized that the Commission is selecting Trump-hater’s exclusively as moderators this year.
Following the backlash, Scully claimed he had never seen or sent that Tweet and that his account had been hacked.
That’s when the Commission on Presidential Debates called the FBI.
Since lying to the FBI is a crime, Scully was then forced to concede that he did indeed send the Tweet and that he lied about his account having been hacked.
“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. “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 his Tweet had created a controversy, I falsely claimed that my Twitter account had been hacked.”
C-SPAN was quick to announce that Scully was suspended indefinitely for his lies.
Trump celebrated the network’s decision on his own social media.
“I was right again! Steve Scully just admitted he was lying about his Twitter being hacked. 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?” Trump posted.
Scully’s lies only deepened the distrust Americans now have with so-called “mainstream” media as sources of news and information.
The political activism the Fake News Media has been engaged in to help the Left may lead to the rejection of appointed moderators in the future and perhaps even long-overdue major reform of the Commission on Presidential Debates.
