By the time I get to Phoenix

Seriously, how in the world can this particular interaction be acceptable?
Amid an ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of email and hours before the public release of the Benghazi report, US Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with former President Bill Clinton. 
The private meeting took place on the west side of Sky Harbor International Airport on board a parked private plane. 
Former President Clinton was visiting the Phoenix area and arrived to Sky Harbor Monday evening to depart.

Sources tell ABC15 Clinton was notified Lynch would be arriving at the airport soon and waited for her arrival.
 As you can imagine, Lynch tried to pretend it was just a "how's your family" meeting, but if that were true, it could have taken place in a public venue and it wouldn't have required a half hour. There is simply no way in hell that Mrs. Clinton's conduct in office wasn't a point of discussion. Everyone knows it, but we're not going to hear a word about this beyond the local reporting. The stench will linger, but we'll be told it's Chanel No. 5.

The more I see of politics these days, the more healthy I think it would be if people just started yelling "BULLSHIT" when stuff like this comes out.

Yelling may or may not help, but every damned Republican in the world should be calling for (a) either Lynch to resign, (b) the immediate appointment of a special prosecutor, or (c) both. It's a complete outrage. Taking a meeting with a guy who is likely a subject of the investigation is astonishingly corrupt. But we don't hear a thing, because that would be "playing politics." Either play or get played.
