The reporter who acted on a tip to go to Sky Harbor International Airport and witnessed the Loretta Lynch-Bill Clinton clandestine meeting said the FBI agents there ordered "no photos, no picture, no cell phones."
Christopher Sign told Fox News' Bill O'Reilly on Thursday that the attorney general's plane landed on time while the former president and his entourage were running late.
"The former president than steps into her plane. They then speak for 30 minutes privately," Sign, a morning anchor for KNXV-TV ABC 15 said on "The O'Reilly Factor."
"The FBI there on the tarmac instructing everybody around, 'No photos, no pictures, no cell phones.' He then gets off the plane, gets on his own plane, he departs, she continues on with her planned visit."
Subsequent to the meeting, Lynch would tell reporters that she and former President Clinton discussed personal matters only, including his golf game. However, Sign said nobody knows why Clinton was in Phoenix and shed doubt that he had played golf while there.
"I have reached out to several sources, those with intimate knowledge of his movements because they work with these dignitaries when they come into Phoenix, not one so far has said that he played golf," Sign said.
"I'm not saying that he didn't play golf. I'm just saying I have yet to confirm that he played golf."
The meeting aroused furor, given that it took place a few hours before Republicans on the House Select Committee on Benghazi were to release their final report. Also that it happened amid the ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server and missing emails.
Lynch on Thursday did not completely recuse herself from that investigation, but did say she would accept the recommendations of the FBI investigation into Clinton's private email server.
