“Clinton” trends on Twitter after reporter who broke Clinton-Lynch Tarmac story found dead

“Clinton” briefly trended on social media platform Twitter after Christopher sign, the reporter who broke the bombshell story of Bill Clinton and Obama-era AG Loretta Lynch meeting on the tarmac during the 2016 election season.

Sign was only 45 years old when found dead at an Alabama residence. The death is being investigated as a suicide.

After Tarmac broke the bombshell story about the meeting that took place while Hillary Clinton was under investigation, he went on to write the book “Secret on the Tarmac” about the experience.
