A reporter who outed the Clintons was found dead at his home over the weekend in what is being investigated as a suicide. 45-year-old Christopher Sign was a Birmingham, Alabama news anchor and former University of Alabama football player.
A seasoned television veteran, while Sign worked as a reporter and morning anchor at ABC affiliate KNXV-TV in Phoenix, he broke the unbelievable “secret tarmac meeting” between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
During the 2016 presidential elections, when candidate Hillary Clinton was under federal criminal investigation for use of her private email service, Sign broke the story that Bill Clinton met Lynch on the tarmac of Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport. Sign wrote a book detailing the entire encounter titled “Secret on the Tarmac.”
Sign told Fox News last year that he “knew something had occurred that was a bit unusual” on the tarmac.
“It was a planned meeting,” Sign said. “It was not a coincidence.”
“[The book] details everything that they don’t want you to know and everything they think you forgot, but Bill Clinton was on that plane for 20 minutes and it wasn’t just about golf, grandkids, and Brexit. There’s so much that doesn’t add up,” he said. “He then sat and waited in his car with the motorcade, her airstairs come down, most of her staff gets off, he then gets on as the Secret Service and FBI are figuring out ‘How in the world are we supposed to handle this? What are we supposed to do?’”
Sign, who said that he received death threats over his reporting, said that the story “isn’t about Right or Left, Republican or Democrat, it’s about right and wrong and journalism.”
“My family received significant death threats shortly after breaking this story,” he said. “Credit cards hacked. You know, my children, we have code words. We have secret code words that they know what to do.”
