Fox News Reporter who Broke Stormy Payoff Now Cooperating With Oversight Committee Democrats
Elijah Cummings, the House Oversight Committee Chairman, revealed that the White House has not turned over any requested documents. That does not mean, however, that no one else is cooperating with the committee.
In early March, the New Yorker revealed that Diana Falzone had her Stormy Daniels story spiked Fox News. According to MSNBC’s Ari Melber, Falzone will work with the committee to reveal what she knows about the alleged payoff.
Melber said on his show last night, “Falzone has given congressional investigators at least some documents that have been requested. She will soon schedule an interview, which means she will talk to them about what happened.”

Despite encouragement from multiple people, Fox News has yet to lift the NDA the network holds over Falzone. Due to the non-disclosure agreement, the committee may have to subpoena Falzone to hear her story.
Fox News maintains that the story was not killed due to the Trump allegations. According to the network, Falzone’s piece did not meet their journalistic standards.
