I wish everybody on the network would have the balls to do this.

A former Fox News employee plans to tell Congress about allegations the outlet tried to stop her from reporting on the Stormy Daniels controversy during the 2016 election, citing an exception to a non-disclosure agreement she signed.
On Thursday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings formally requested the reporter, Diana Falzone, talk with committee investigators and provide documents related to her attempts to report on Daniels’ allegations that Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former longtime lawyer, paid her hush money after an alleged affair with Trump in 2006.
Falzone’s lawyer, Nancy Erika Smith, told MSNBC on Thursday night that Falzone will now comply under an exception to her NDA with Fox News.
“The law requires that you be allowed to participate in any government investigation — and no NDA can stop that,” Smith said on “The Beat with Ari Melber.”
Cummings’ letter requests an interview with Falzone and any documents regarding payments by Trump “to silence women alleging extramarital affairs with him prior to the 2016 presidential election,” and “any action taken against [Falzone] in connection with attempts to report on such stories.”
You may remember that Falzone was hot on the hush money story and ready to report it out in October of 2016, only to be shut down by the network and then demoted.
If Falzone had been allowed to report on the story instead of allowing Fox and the National Enquirer to catch and kill it, we might have a President in the White House who is not an out of control lunatic.
I for one am looking forward to hearing what this woman has to say about the inner workings of Fox News and their sycophantic relationship with Donald Trump.
