- Pence Recalled To White House As Putin Pulls Out Of Scheduled Event; Officials Say “No Cause For Alarm”

Update 4: Roughly six hours have passed since the first reports emerged that Vice President Mike Pence was forced to cancel an event in New Hampshire on Tuesday to attend to an unspecified
emergency“situation” in Washington. At first, officials said Pence had landed in New Hampshire, then that Air Force 2 was forced to turn around mid-flight. Then, it finally emerged that he had never actually left Washington.
Naked speculation about the circumstances surrounding the cancellation has flourished in the absence of any kind of explanation from the White House. Was it a presidential health-related emergency? Did Iran carry out an underground nuclear test?
Whatever the reason, it could be a while before the public receives an explanation, according to Marc Short, Pence’s chief of staff:
Update 3: RT is reporting that Putin is meeting with his defense minister about this morning’s deadly fire aboard the Losharik, a Russian nuclear-powered deep submersible.
It’s still unclear what Pence and the EU Security Council are doing. Now, officials are clarifying that Air Force Two never actually left Washington.
