The nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates says there was indeed a problem with Donald Trump's microphone during Monday night's first general election debate, the AP reports. The commission says on its website that "there were issues regarding Donald Trump's audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall." There was no noticeable issue with the sound on television. The GOP nominee complained about his mic the morning after the debate, even suggesting he may have been sabotaged. Rival Hillary Clinton had mocked the complaint, saying anybody who complains about a microphone "is not having a good night." (Read more Donald Trump stories.)
