ABC 33/40 news anchor Christopher Sign passed away in his home over the weekend, according to his family, colleagues and Hoover police.
His body was discovered around 8 a.m. Saturday morning. He was 45-years-old.
The police department has said that they are investigating the death as a suicide
He is the whistleblower who broke the Clinton/Lynch story about their meeting.
When the tarmac story came out, it made massive waves internationally as the secret meeting took place during the election — and just days before then-FBI Director James Comey announced the bureau would not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton.
Trump tweeted this at the time:
Now a video surfaced from President Trump’s interview with Chris where he praises him for his courage to broke the story and calls him a good man!

The full interview below:
He began his career as a reporter at 33/40 in the late ’90s and early 2000′s and returned as an anchor in 2017.
He returned there because he felt safer with his “Alabama University family” after he received many death threats!
Christopher Sign went on Fox recently about the death threats he received after breaking the Clinton tarmac story.
Trust Hillary, his “suicide” is a total coincidence. https://t.co/i26UQridFk
