On the heels of the New Yorker report titled, “The Making of the Fox News White House,” it appears the House Oversight Democrats have elected to formally request documents from former Fox News reporter Diana Falzone.
And despite the NDA that has prevented her from speaking out, she’s now prepared to tell all on the Stormy Daniels’ hush money scandal because the request “trumps” the NDA.
In an interview with MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber on “The Beat,” Nancy Erika Smith, the attorney who represents Falzone, said that the Oversight Committee Chair Elijah Cummings (D-MD) requested the documents in a letter.
“Nancy, what can you tell me about this request?” Melber asked. “Have you received it?”
“I have received the request, Ari, and I want to add to what I said on air exclusively to you the other night, a valid government investigation also trumps an NDA,” Smith replied.
“And so do you view this — even before it ever gets to a subpoena level — this request itself as something that you can comply, with, regardless of Fox News asking for your client’s silence?” Melber asked.
“Yes,” she said. “This is an exception to the NDA, you can — nobody can enter an NDA that will interfere with a government investigation.”
