Reporter Christopher Sign exposed Bill Clinton's tarmac meeting in 2016 - now he's dead

The journalist who first reported Bill Clinton's now-infamous 2016 "tarmac meeting" with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch has been found dead.

Reporter Christopher Sign's body was discovered in his Hoover, Alabama, apartment by authorities.

According to Alabama police Lt. Keith Czeskleba, Sign's death is being investigated by police as an apparent “suicide.”

The body of the 45-year-old news anchor for Birmingham's ABC 33/40 was found by Hoover police and fire personnel at 8 a.m. on Saturday following a 911 call.

"Our deepest sympathy is shared with Christopher’s loving family and close friends,” ABC 33/40 vice president Eric Land said in a statement.

"We have lost a revered colleague who’s indelible imprint will serve forever as a hallmark of decency, honesty and journalist integrity."

"We can only hope to carry on his legacy," Land added.

"May his memory be for blessing."

Sign wrote a book exposing the Clinton tarmac story called Secret on the Tarmac.

"The plan was perfect," his book synopsis says.

"No cameras, no microphones, no prying eyes and plenty of security.

"The setting for a clandestine meeting could not have been better.

"Former President Bill Clinton exited Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s private plane 20-minutes after he boarded.

"Both thought they got away with it. Both were wrong.

"Amid a heated Presidential race, federal investigations involving emails and Benghazi and society looking for clarity on the future of the country, the secret tarmac meeting would only complicate things.

"The secret meeting would have never been revealed if it weren’t for a veteran journalist and a trusted source."

When the devastating tarmac story came out, it made waves internationally as the secret meeting took place during an election – and just days before then-FBI Director James Comey announced the bureau would not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton.

Lynch said in a July 1, 2016 interview that she would not recuse herself from the Clinton email investigation but that she would accept the recommendation of the career agents and prosecutors who conducted it, according to the Washington Examiner.

This came after she had obtained an ethics opinion from the Departmental Ethics Office that she was not required to recuse herself.

Both Bill Clinton and Lynch claim the email investigation was not brought up during their chat, but Sign, who was a morning anchor at the Phoenix-area ABC15 when he first reported their encounter, said there was more to the story and wrote a book about it, Secret on the Tarmac.

The book “details everything that they don’t want you to know and everything they think you forgot,” Sign said on Fox & Friends in February 2020.

"There’s so much that doesn’t add up.”

"But Bill Clinton was on that plane for 20 minutes, and it wasn’t just about golf, grandkids, and Brexit."

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz examined the tarmac meeting as part of a review of the FBI’s emails investigation.

In a report released in June 2018, Horowitz said Clinton was in Phoenix for “several campaign events, including a roundtable discussion with Latino leaders and a campaign fundraiser, and his plane was preparing to depart” when he crossed paths with Lynch, whose plane had just arrived.

Horowitz also criticized Lynch for making statements that “created considerable public confusion” about her role in the emails investigation, although he said investigators found no evidence the email inquiry was discussed.

Sign told Fox News in early 2020 his family received numerous death threats since he broke the story about the meeting in the lead-up to the 2016 election.

“My family received significant death threats shortly after breaking this story,” Sign said at the time.

"Credit cards hacked.

"You know, my children, we have code words.

"We have secret code words that they know what to do.”

Social media has been flooded with Tributes for Sign.

Sign is survived by his wife, Laura, and their three sons.
