FBI Now Investigating ‘Hack’ of Steve Scully’s Twitter


The claim that C-SPAN journalist Steve Scully’s email was hacked last week is now being scrutinized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Scully, who had been picked to moderate the since-canceled Oct. 15 presidential debate, appeared Thursday to have sent a since-deleted tweet to Anthony Scaramucci, who after a brief and tempestuous stint as White House communications director is now a virulent foe of the president.

“@Scaramucci should I respond to trump,” Scully tweeted, with the message appearing publicly.

In the aftermath of the widespread condemnation of Scully’s apparent bias, the Commission on Presidential Debates, which had chosen Scully for the role, tweeted that the FBI and Twitter were investigating whether Scully had been a victim of hacking.
