Why was Steve Scully suspended?
Scully was suspended indefinitely after he admitted to lying about his Twitter feed being hacked.
Scully was to moderate the second debate between President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, which was canceled after Trump would not agree to a virtual format because of his Covid diagnosis.
It all started when Trump criticized him as a “never Trumper.”
Scully tweeted “@Scaramucci should I respond to Trump.”
Scaramucci, a former Trump communications director and now a critic of the president, advised Scully to ignore him.
Scully said that when he saw his tweet had created a controversy, “I falsely claimed that my Twitter account had been hacked.”
He would apologize for his “errors of judgement.”
