Former Fox News reporter Diana Falzone – who claims the network spiked her story on Stormy Daniels' non-disclosure agreement with then-candidate Donald Trump to help him win the 2016 election – is reportedly cooperating with congressional investigators on the House Committee on Oversight and Reform.

Falzone has begun turning over documents requested by Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD).

Fox News has repeatedly denied Falzone's claims. Ken LaCorte – Falzone's editor at the time – claimed he spiked the story because there wasn't sufficient proof to publish.

Stormy Daniels herself publicly denied the affair at the time and would continue to do so for another year.

Mediaite's Tamar Auber reports:
 

Falzone has sued Fox News and as part of that settlement signed a non-disclosure agreement stating that she would not talk about her work at Fox.

Just last week, Falzone called for the NDA to be lifted, as it “pertains to the topic of her reporting in October of 2016 regarding Donald Trump paying hush money to Stormy Daniels,” according to court documents.

The New Yorker‘s Jane Mayer also published a report in recent weeks reporting Falzone had confirmed that Trump had arranged hush money payments prior to the 2016 election.
