One of Sign’s most notable works of journalism is when he broke the story of the secret tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch in 2016.
The journalistic effort by Christopher Sign was important because shortly after he broke the story Clinton and Lynch meeting up, Director James Comey announced the the FBI would not file any charges against Hillary Clinton.
This made many people to believe that the meeting on the tarmac between Clinton and Lynch had a major impact on the reason why Hillary was never charged for her emails.

The Washington Examiner covered the story and dropped these details:
The journalist who broke the story about the controversial 2016 tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch was found dead Saturday morning, according to police.
The body of 45-year-old Christopher Sign, a news anchor for ABC 33/40 in Birmingham, was discovered by Hoover police and fire personnel at around 8 a.m. following a 911 call about a person down in a residence in Alabama, according to AL.com.
Hoover police Lt. Keith Czeskleba said Sign’s death is being investigated as a suicide, the report added.
“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,” ABC 33/40 Vice President and general manager Eric Land said in a statement.
Sign, who played football at the University of Alabama and became an Emmy-award winning reporter, earned national headlines when he revealed the encounter between Lynch and Clinton on June 27, 2016, at the Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport at a time when the FBI was investigating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of an unauthorized email server and the presidential election in which she was the Democratic candidate.
The meeting took place days before then-FBI Director James Comey announced the bureau would not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton’s wife, for her emails. However, Comey called her handling of classified information “extremely careless.”
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. But Bill Clinton was on that plane for 20 minutes, and it wasn’t just about golf, grandkids, and Brexit,” Sign said on Fox & Friends in February 2020. “There’s so much that doesn’t add up.”
Things get even stranger, one of Christopher’s last interviews he talked about getting death threats for breaking the Clinton tarmac story.

Alabama.com got the story too and had this to share:
Veteran TV newsman and former University of Alabama football player Christopher Sign died Saturday morning in an apparent suicide, according to police.
At 8:13 a.m. Saturday, the Hoover 911 center received a call of a person down at a residence on Scout Trace. Hoover police and fire personnel arrived to find the 45-year-old Sign dead.
Hoover police Lt. Keith Czeskleba said the death is being investigated as a suicide.
ABC 33/40 in 2017 announced Sign was returning to Birmingham from Phoenix as the evening anchor, replacing Dave Baird after he retired.
“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,” Land said.
Sign, who grew up near Dallas, previously worked as a reporter for ABC 33/40 from 2000 to 2005, where he covered the 2001 Brookwood mine disaster and hurricanes Charlie, Frances and Ivan.
While a reporter and morning anchor at ABC affiliate KNXV-TV in Phoenix, Sign broke the story of the June 2016 secret tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
The isn’t the first time a person who exposed the Clinton’s or were some kind of associates to them died in a “suicide” there’s been several others too.
