A few weeks ago, Vice President Mike Pence abruptly canceled his trip to Salem for a “problem up there,” according to President Donald Trump. Pence was on the tarmac when he was called back to the White House, according to officials that day.
The “problem,” which had been shrouded in secrecy, was that one of the people Pence was to meet with, Granite Recovery Center’s then-chief business development officer, Jeff Hatch, had been the source of a 2017 drug investigation.
According to court documents cited by Politico, Hatch allegedly transported 1,500 grams of fentanyl from Lawrence, Mass. across state lines to New Hampshire where he distributed smaller amounts to couriers.
