Scully, who was supposed to moderate tonight's scheduled second presidential debate before it was canceled, had tweeted "should I respond to Trump" at former Trump aide Anthony Scaramucci, later claiming he was hacked. Scully said that when he saw his tweet had created a controversy, “I falsely claimed that my Twitter account had been hacked.” Scully said his comments were in response to right-wing criticism of him being moderator. “These were both errors in judgement for which I am totally responsible for,” Scully said. “I apologize.” The news prompted Trump to tweet: “I was right again! Steve Scully just admitted he was lying about his Twitter being hacked. The Debate was Rigged! He was suspended from C-SPAN indefinitely. The Trump campaign was not treated fairly by the ‘Commission’. Did I show good instincts in being the first to know?"
