Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but why is Trump so interested in keeping Hatch around? Could it be to do with the rules of succession, in case both Trump and Pence were removed from office? Because as it stands, Hatch is third in line, and if he were to go, the senate would by tradition choose Leahy, a Dem, as his successor. And he might be less inclined to issue pardons. Thoughts?
