Mystery Solved: Mike Pence’s New Hampshire Trip Was Canceled At The Last Second Because…

...the solution to the mystery of why Pence had to be pulled off the tarmac before embarking for New Hampshire for an event turns out to be simple: He was walking into a terrible photo op and didn’t know it.

If Pence stepped off the vice presidential aircraft, one of the people he would have seen on the ground was under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration for moving more than $100,000 of fentanyl from Massachusetts to New Hampshire.

Jeff Hatch, who agreed in federal court Friday to plead guilty and will face up to four years in prison, works for an opioid addiction treatment center in southern New Hampshire that Pence was set to visit. A former New York Giants player, he has spoken publicly for years about his own challenge with drug and alcohol addiction, which ended his football career…

Federal court documents released Friday said Hatch was caught in 2017 with 1,500 grams of fentanyl. A baggie of the drug sold on the streets of New Hampshire is usually about one-tenth of a gram.
Apparently Hatch tried to sell some of the fentanyl to an undercover agent, was nabbed, and then agreed to cooperate with the feds to help them pinch people in his supply chain. He ended up with a slap on the wrist, a four-year prison term according to the plea agreement that was revealed Friday. That’s what Trump meant when he said after Pence’s mysterious cancellation that we’d know in two weeks why he had to skip the opioid event. Evidently that was when the feds planned to reveal Hatch’s plea deal. Until then, the White House couldn’t spill the beans or they’d risk blowing his cover as an informant. They must have only learned of Hatch’s criminal jeopardy at the last second before Pence’s departure.

Imagine Mike Pence posing for a grip-and-grin with Hatch upon arrival in New Hampshire, only to have that photo plastered everywhere in lefty media two weeks later when Hatch’s drug-dealing activities were revealed. It would have been a dirty hit — again, Hatch was cooperating with the DOJ to take down other dealers and Pence could have justified going through with it on grounds that canceling at the last minute might have tipped off the bad guys that the feds knew what Hatch was up to. But lefties would have eagerly circulated the photo anyway. In the end, the White House spared itself a headache.
