CHRISTOPHER Sign, an award-winning TV news anchor who wrote a bombshell exposé on Bill Clinton, has died.
His family had received death threats after he broke the story about the meeting between ex-US President and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
What did Christopher Sign say about the Clintons?
Christopher Sign, 45, a former University of Alabama football player, penned a book about a secret meeting between Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in June 2016.
'Secret on the Tarmac' was published in 2019.
The explosive meeting cast a negative light over the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, Fox News explains.
The get-together took place at Phoenix's Sky Harbor Airport.
“We knew something had occurred that was a bit unusual. It was a planned meeting. It was not a coincidence,” journalist Christopher Sign told Fox & Friends.
Clinton and Lynch claimed their chat centered on their grandchildren.
But, eyebrows were raised as the meeting took place days before the FBI decided it would not recommend criminal charges against Hillary.
The meeting sparked suspicions about whether Bill Clinton was lobbying her on behalf of his wife – at the time a presidential candidate.
Sign said the get-together "was a planned meeting, it was not a coincidence.
“[Secret on the Tarmac] 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."
Sign's source told him that Clinton had arrived at the airport, and he was waiting for Lynch.
“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 said.
He added: “As journalists, you have to ask yourself, why are people not delving into this? Why are we not looking into what exactly happened?"
When Lynch testified before the House Oversight Committee in 2018, she told lawmakers "that Bill Clinton flattered her, talked about Eric Holder, talked about how things were going at Justice, talked about her job performance, not this golf-grandkids, Brexit," Sign said.
But Bill Clinton rejected Sign's claims, and said that he was "offended" over allegations of misconduct regarding the airport meeting.
“I thought, you know, I don’t know whether I’m more offended that they think I’m crooked or that they think I’m stupid,” Clinton told investigators, according to a 2018 report released by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
Sign told Fox that his family had been hit with death threats after publishing the book.
"My family received significant death threats shortly after breaking this story," Sign said.
He went on: "Credit cards hacked. You know, my children, we have code words. We have secret code words that they know what to do."
Sign paid tribute to his former "Alabama football family, and my teammates and coaches who circled around me" while trying to cope with the death threats.
“This story isn’t about right or left, Republican or Democrat, it’s about right and wrong and journalism," he added.
According to Amazon's blurb promoting Sign's book, "the plan was perfect. 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."
The intro adds: "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.
"It was decades of experience and relationships that led to the moment Christopher Sign broke the story of the secret tarmac meeting.
"This is the unfiltered story of the secret tarmac meeting.
"Christopher takes you behind the scenes for a step by step account of how it all unfolded in the summer of 2016 on a blazing tarmac.
"Details revealed for the first time, the process, the questions of sabotage, the attempt at a cover-up and the source who saw it all."
