Earlier this month, Vice President Mike Pence was en route to Manchester, N.H., when suddenly — and without explanation — it returned back to Washington D.C.
The VP was scheduled to make remarks on the opioid crisis at a drug addiction recovery center. The sudden cancellation left many pundits scratching their heads.
Pence, nor his team, would talk about why they suddenly cancelled the trip.
It turns out, Pence was trying to protect an on-going federal investigation into an alleged drug dealer.

Shortly after the incident, President Donald Trump told the media to be patient, and that they’d release information surrounding the the drama “in about two weeks.”
According to Politico, Pence was aboard his Air Force Two flight en route to New Hampshire — and the FBI warned that he’d be meeting with a suspected drug dealer that was using the drug treatment facility as a front.
There was a full scale FBI investigation into Jeff Hatch, a former New York Giants football player who’d reportedly become addicted to narcotics and alcohol.
Hatch had been tailed by law enforcement for allegedly selling opioids.
He was an employee at the addiction recovery center that Pence had been scheduled to visit.
According to authorities, Hatch dealt a lethal amount of drugs.
Court documents and federal investigators claim he moved $100,000 worth of Fentanyl from Massachusetts to New Hampshire and he’d been involved in the drug trade for quite some time.
In 2017, he was busted with 1,500 grams of Fentanyl.

Pence kept his distance — and federal agents recently moved in to arrest Hatch.
If convicted, he faces a four-year prison sentence.
