Final Presidential Debate Moderator Has Ties to Obamas, Biden

'Anyone who’s ever dealt with Welker knows she’s an activist, not a reporter...'

The moderator for the second and final presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden has deep ties to the Democratic Party.

NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker’s family has reportedly donated thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates over the years, including $20,000 to former President Barack Obama‘s reelection campaign and Biden’s current presidential campaign, according to the New York Post.

Welker even attended the Obama White House’s Christmas Party with her family in 2012.

In March 2016, Welker was caught on live television telling Hillary Clinton’s communications director Jennifer Palmieri what question she was going to ask.

And in 2004 in Rhode Island, where she was a local TV reporter, and in Washington DC in 2012, Welker’s voter registrations were listed as Democrat.

“Anyone who’s ever dealt with Welker knows she’s an activist, not a reporter. The White House press team views her the same way they would AOC or Pelosi if they walked in the office,” a senior White House official told the New York Post.

This news comes just a few days after C-SPAN’s Steve Scully, who was to moderate the canceled debate between Trump and Biden last week, admitted he lied about his ties to NeverTrumper and former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

Scully accidentally tweeted to Scaramucci asking whether he should “respond” to something Trump had said.

When confronted, Scully lied and claimed that his Twitter account had been hacked.

Scully also had ties to Biden, having interned for him when Biden was a senator.

C-SPAN announced Friday that Scully had been suspended “indefinitely” for lying about the hacking, prompting Trump to take a victory lap since he had been “right” about Scully’s bias.
