Just one of the latest people caught up in the Feds' pursuit of unusually large bank withdrawals is none other than former House Speaker, Dennis Hastert (R-IL).

The FBI has indicted Hastert, who was Speaker from 1999 to 2007, for having lied to them about millions of dollars Hastert withdrew, apparently to pay off a man who accused him of sexual assault while the representative was still a high school wrestling coach.

Hastert's indictment glows with irony because in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, the former Representative helped steer the Patriot Act, and its expanded currency transaction reporting requirements into law.

Dennis Hastert used to be the Republican Speaker of the House, who ran on family values. Now federal authorities have discovered that he allegedly is paying a man hush money to cover up the sexual assault of a minor when he was a high school teacher. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola (Think Tank), Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?), and Jimmy Dore hosts of The Young Turks discuss.

"J. Dennis Hastert, the former speaker of the House of Representatives, was paying a man to not say publicly that Mr. Hastert had sexually abused him decades ago, according to two people briefed on the evidence uncovered in an F.B.I. investigation into the payments.

Federal prosecutors on Thursday announced the indictment of Mr. Hastert on allegations that he made cash withdrawals designed to hide those payments and for lying to federal authorities about the purpose of the withdrawals.

The man – who was not identified in court papers — told the F.B.I. that he had been inappropriately touched by Mr. Hastert when Mr. Hastert was a high school teacher and wrestling coach, the two people said on Friday. The people briefed on the investigation spoke on the condition of anonymity because they did not want to be identified discussing a federal investigation."-
