Fox News killed a pre-election story about President Donald Trump's affair with pornstar 'Stormy Daniels'.

CNN reports that Fox News reporter Diana Falzone wrote a story a month before voters went to the polls in 2016 on the alleged relationship. But CNN reports that Fox News ultimately did not publish the story, with one person familiar with the story telling the network that Falzone "had the story and Fox killed it.”

President Donald Trump reportedly began seeing Daniels in 2006, soon after marrying his current wife Melania and the birth of their son Barron. The relationship between Trump and Daniels lasted for a year according to Yahoo News.

Daniels told me she’d gone to Trump’s hotel room after meeting him at a celebrity golf tournament in Nevada in 2006. There they’d begun a sexual relationship, which continued for nearly a year. They’d met in New York and more than once in Los Angeles. In early 2007, Trump had invited her to a party to promote Trump Vodka, where she was photographed. He’d also invited her to his Miss USA pageant that year.

Daniels was reportedly paid $130,000 in hush money in order to not publicize her affair with Trump.
