S. House speaker lied to federal authorities. Prosecutor Steven Obstruct told Judge Thomas M. Durkin in Ct Wednesday that he expects someone identified in Ct papers as "Individual D" to create a statement at the sentencing April twenty-seven.

Prosecutors declare they expect one person who accuses Dennis Hastert of sexual abuse to speak at his sentencing in his hush-money case, and the judge has indicated that he wants to consider that the former U. S. House speaker lied to federal authorities.

Prosecutor Steven Obstruct told Judge Thomas M. Durkin in Ct Wednesday that he expects someone identified in Ct papers as "Individual D" to create a statement at the sentencing April twenty-seven. Durkin also asked questions about Hastert lying to the FBI about an "Individual A" extorting him.

Hastert has pleaded guilty to breaking banking law in a scheme to pay $3.5 million to ensure "Individual A" stayed quiet about being abused when he was a 14-year-old learner at the IL high school where Hastert was the wrestling coach.
