Hillary Clinton's Plane Grounded After 'Shaking And Smoking' From Mechanical Issue
Plane forced to ground at LaGuardia Airport Sunday
A plane with Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on board was grounded at LaGuardia Airport Sunday after pilots reported an "unknown" mechanical issue to authorities.
The American Airlines flight 2144 to Washington DC’s Reagan Airport was ordered to return to the gate after ground personnel reported a mechanical issue, according to CNN.
It was later confirmed by a CNN source that Clinton was on board the plane.
The plane's pilots reported feeling the plane shake then saw smoke.
Later, metal debris was discovered in the area where the mechanical issue took place.
The news comes days after Clinton held secretive talks with American-born anti-Trump British Royal Family member Meghan Markle during her UK book tour.
The pair reportedly met on Tuesday at the heavily-guarded Frogmore Cottage - the Windsor home the Duchess of Sussex shares with her husband, Prince Harry.
Clinton is currently promoting her new book, Book of Gutsy Women, co-authored with her daughter, Chelsea Clinton.
It is believed that the meeting may have been arranged with the help of the couple's head of communications, Sara Latham, who worked for Hillary Clinton on her campaign.

Hillary admitted this week that she is under "huge, huge pressure" to run again against President Donald Trump next year.
Last month, Hillary suggested a presidential election "rematch" between herself and Trump, declaring, “obviously, I can beat him again.”
Clinton made the calls during an interview with “PBS NewsHour,” remarking that the "delusional" president is "obsessed" with her, stating, "so, maybe there does need to be a rematch" between her and Trump.
Hillary told PBS's Judy Woodruff:
“You know, it truly is remarkable how obsessed he remains with me."
"But this latest tweet is so typical of him."
"Nothing has been more examined and looked at than my emails. We all know that."So, he’s either lying or delusional or both."
