According to the TV anchor, the former President met with Lynch on her private jet in Phoenix amid the ongoing investigation into his wife Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while holding her position as Secretary of State.

Days after Clinton and Lynch's alleged meeting, the FBI decided not to hit Hillary with criminal charges.

"My family received significant death threats shortly after breaking this story," Sign said during the interview to promote his book on the scandal that the titled Secret on the Tarmac.

Revealing that he and his wife gave their children "secret code words" just in case anything were to happen, Sign told Fox News, "they know what to do."

"That's why I came back to... Birmingham because when I was enduring the death threats it was my former Alabama football family - my teammates, my coaches - who circled around me," he said.

Clinton and Lynch later described their meeting as an impromptu friendly conversation among friends.

But not everyone bought it.

"We knew something had occurred that was a bit unusual. It was a planned meeting. It was not a coincidence," Sign said in an interview about the meeting.

Donald Trump later tweeted, "Does anybody really believe that Bill Clinton and the U.S.A.G. talked only about 'grandkids' and golf for 37 minutes in plane on tarmac?"
