Christopher Sign, the journalist who broke the 2016 tarmac meeting story between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch was found dead Saturday morning, according to local police.
Hoover police Lt. Keith Czeskleba said Sign’s death is being investigated as a suicide.
“Our deepest sympathy is shared with Christopher’s loving family and close friends. 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. May his memory be for blessing,” said ABC 33/40 Vice President and General Manager Eric Land in a statement.
Sign revealed a meeting on June 27, 2016 between Lynch and Clinton at the Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, which occurred during the FBI’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of an unauthorized email server, according to the Washington Examiner.
