Earlier this month, Vice President Mike Pence canceled a trip to New Hampshire at the last minute without giving any explanation.
It was an odd story, and of course made more curious since it has been hanging out there since forever as to the cause. So here it is. It sounded like another feel good story about sin and redemption. Druggie makes good. Pence highlights a good story.
Trump may want to consider how his last feel good story is going as he continues to hand out pardons and commutations.

The vice president had to abruptly end the trip. When word got out that the flight had been canceled, Pence’s aides were quiet on the details as to why.
Now, it appears the journey was scrapped because Pence was moments away from shaking hands with an alleged drug dealer, Politico reported.
Pence was scheduled to speak at the Granite Recovery Center headquarters in New Hampshire, where he was set to address the “opioid crisis and illegal drug flow in New Hampshire.”
That individual was former New York Giants player Jeff Hatch.
Hatch had been under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration for moving more than $100,000 worth of fentanyl across state lines.
On Friday, Hatch pleaded guilty to the drug charges in federal court, where he now faces up to four years in prison.
Other than that, all is well in the swamp.
