Police officials in Alabama are looking into an apparent “suicide” by the journalist who reported the bombshell news in 2016 that former President Clinton had secretly met with then-A.G. Loretta Lynch on a tarmac in Phoenix during the presidential election while then-candidate Hillary Clinton, was under federal investigation.
“On Saturday morning, the Hoover 911 center got a call of a person down on Scout Trace. Hoover police arrived to discover the 45-year-old Christopher Sign deceased., it was reported on AL.com. “Police Lt. Keith Czeskleba said they are investigating the death as a suicide.”
Sign, who played football for the University of Alabama, changed jobs to an Alabama ABC station in 2017 after leaving the Phoenix station.
While in Phoenix, Sign broke the top story of the 2016 presidential race that Bill Clinton had met with Lynch at a Phoenix Airport while the then-AG was investigating Hilary Clinton’s private e-mail server.
Sign then wrote a book about the meeting titled ‘Secret on the Tarmac.’
Sign explained his book to Fox News last year:
“The book explains everything they don’t want you to know and what they believe you forgot about, but Clinton was on the plane for around 20 minutes and it was not just about Brexit. There is so much that does not add up., he said. “He waited in his car, most of her staff gets out, then he gets on as the FBI and Secret Service are trying to work out ‘How are we supposed to handle this?”
Sign, who revealed that he had got death threats over this story, said that his report was “not about Right or Left but about right and wrong in journalism.”
“My family got many death threats right after breaking this story., he said. “Our credit cards got hacked. My children and I, we have code words and they know what to do.”
