Vice President Mike Pence was one short plane ride away from shaking hands with an alleged interstate drug dealer.

Pence abruptly canceled his trip to Manchester, N.H., earlier this month but never said why he was pulled from Air Force Two at the last minute.

The article goes on to state the following:

Among the problems was a federal law enforcement probe involving individuals Pence would likely encounter, according to a law enforcement official briefed on the incident. 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.

According to the report, Jeff Hatch is a former New York Giants player who has been outspoken about his battles with drug and alcohol addiction. He works for a southern New Hampshire opioid addiction treatment center which Pence would have visited.

Hatch has agreed to plead guilty after he was caught with 1,500 grams of fentanyl in 2017. “A baggie of the drug sold on the streets of New Hampshire is usually about one-tenth of a gram,” Politico reports. He faces up to four years in prison.
