“They” of course refers to former president Bill Clinton and current Attorney General Loretta Lynch, busted for a private meeting in an out-of-the-way aircraft on the tarmac at the Phoenix airport. Since both Clinton and his wife are currently under investigation by the FBI, that meeting amounts to a gigantic conflict of interest for AG Lynch at best.
From the Observer.com, here's Ken Kurson discussing how the meeting took place:
Exclusive: Security Source Details Bill Clinton Maneuver to Meet Loretta Lynch
There's a lot more to the article, but the gist is that the meeting was no accident but rather a deliberate cornering of AG Lynch by Clinton.
Why? What purpose could be served by such a meeting, denounced on both sides of the aisle? Well, the rumor mill's running rampant there. From Jonathan F. Keiler of the American Thinker:
A Suspicious Meeting in Phoenix Probably Means FBI Charges Against Clinton
Presumably the headline writer means Hillary, not Bill, although it's worth remembering that, with the Clinton Foundation also under investigation, as well as the server and emails, that makes Bill at least a potential person of interest to the FBI. More rampantly conspiracist is this article from Richard Pollock of The Daily Caller:
Exclusive: Was Bill Plea Bargaining with Loretta Lynch?
Well, maybe. But IMO, Fox News‘ Chris Stirewalt nails it:
What was Bubba up to?
Mr Stirewalt reminds readers that there's an old attorney's trick of spoiling a case in order to cause a delay… which would push the FBI investigation into special investigator territory and therefore well past November's election. Oh, yeah, I can picture Bill doing that. Without a doubt.
Ian Schwartz of Real Clear Politics snipped a video of Frank Luntz and Tucker Carlson on today's Fox & Friends that's even less charitable to the former president:
Frank Luntz: Bill Clinton “Sabotages” His Wife's Campaign at Key Moments
Finally, we have Ace from the Ace of Spades HQ with the last word on the subject:
Loretta Lynch: To Protect the Integrity of the Department of Justice, I Vow to Listen to the FBI's Recommendation on Hillary Clinton Before Clearing My Tarmac-Buddy's Wife of All Charges
Unfortunately for the presumed Dem nominee, there's more scandal coming. From Peter Byrne at Fox News:
Clinton sought secret info on EU bailout plans as son-in-law's doomed hedge fund gambled on Greece
Hillary using her position as Secretary of State to benefit her family through insider information? Yeah, I can picture that, too.

If you donated to Bernie Sanders, check it out. If I'm reading this correctly, you may be able to get your $$ back… from the DNC and DWS. Since they rigged the system for Hillary, I mean.
