4. I wonder if Pence was picked because he was the only one who would say yes

Pence gave 45 a governor as a running mate. Pence's political career was basically in the toilet. He was a failed governor who tried to enact an extreme new Christian social agenda and was then backed into a corner by the state's biggest corporation and told to stop. Which he quickly did.

Pence gave 45 cover for his less than Sunday School demeanor. But given how inept Pence has proven himself to be, I can't imagine he was in with Putin. I think it is more likely Pence is willing to do whatever. I think any other VP with integrity would have either resigned by now or completely distanced themselves from 45.

I think Putin has great influence on 45. I think what Putin is most interested in is having sanctions removed, US getting out of his business in Eastern Europe and clearing out of the Middle East.
