In the months before the 2016 election, Bill Clinton was spotted boarding a plane to talk to then attorney general Loretta Lynch. Alone.
It set off a firestorm of speculation because Hillary’s email investigation was under a spotlight at the time.
The reporter who broke this story was a young man named Chris Sign.
This weekend he was found dead of an apparent suicide.
The Reporter Who Broke the News About Clinton’s Secret Tarmac Meeting is Dead
Back in June 2016, local ABC15 reporter Christopher Sign broke the news that former President Bill Clinton secretly met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix. The meeting lasted for nearly half-an-hour inside of Lynch’s official government plane.
At the time, then Democrat presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was under FBI investigation for sending and receiving top secret, classified information on a private email server. Just days after the meeting, the FBI announced Clinton would not face charges.

The Alabama TV anchor who broke news of the infamous 2016 “tarmac meeting” between former President Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch died Saturday in an apparent suicide, according to reports and his employer.
Christopher Sign, 45, was found dead by Hoover, Ala., police around 8:13 a.m. Saturday after cops received a call of “a person down” at his Scout Trace home, according to Al.com. The former college football player’s death is being investigated as a suicide, Hoover Lt. Keith Czeskleba said, according to the outlet.
“Chris was a tremendous leader in our newsroom,” wrote ABC 33/40, Sign’s outlet, in a Saturday tribute to the reporter.
Sign appeared on FOX News recently and said he and his family have received death threats over the story:
