ABC News reporter, Christopher Sign, 45, originally broke the story about the secret meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
At the time, Hillary was running for president and Lynch was investigating the Clinton email scandal, all of which was brushed under the rug.
According to police, Sign, a former University of Alabama football player, committed suicide.
Days after the news broke the FBI announced they were not going to charge Hillary Clinton criminally but in a letter to Congress then-FBI Director James Come scolded the former first lady.

The letter and news of the meeting was catastrophic and a few weeks later Clinton lost to Donald Trump.
Sign was a local anchor at the local ABC affiliate in Birmingham.
“Our deepest sympathy is shared with Chris’s loving family and close friends,’ said Sinclair Broadcast Group Vice President and General Manager Eric S. Land. “We have lost a revered colleague whose indelible imprint will serve forever as a hallmark of decency, honesty and journalist integrity. We can only hope to carry on Chris’s legacy. May his memory be for blessing.”
Sign got the scoop of the year and even backed up his findings after Lynch and Clinton claimed the conversation was spontaneous.
“We knew something had occurred that was a bit unusual. It was a planned meeting. It was not a coincidence.’ Sign told Fox and Friends in February 2020 ahead of the release of his book Secret on the Tarmac.
He reported the FBI and Secret Service were bewildered, “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 told Fox. “She mentioned 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 reported that after he broke the story the death threats started, “My family received significant death threats shortly after breaking this story,’ he told Fox. ‘Credit cards hacked. You know, my children, we have code words. We have secret code words that they know what to do.”
