Fmr House Speaker Says Child He Raped Should Pay Back Hush Money Since He Broke His Silence

In April of last year, Dennis Hastert, former Speaker of the House and admitted child rapist, was sentenced to 15 months in prison for paying his victims to keep quiet.

Hastert was sentenced, not for raping children, but for illegally structuring bank transactions in an effort to cover up his sexual abuse of young members of a wrestling team he coached.

Now, this sicko pedophile is trying to get back that hush money. Because one of the boys he raped broke his silence, in spite of the $1.7 million in hush money Hastert gave him, this pedophile politician wants his money back.

When the victim, known only as ‘Individial A’, broke his silence, Hastert’s child rapes were exposed — resulting in the subsequent prosecution.

“To the extent any contract existed between plaintiff [Individual A] and defendant [Hastert], plaintiff breached that contract,” Hastert’s lawyers wrote.

“Plaintiff’s breach of conduct resulted in damages to defendant and plaintiff is accordingly required to return $1.7 million to defendant.”

Individual A did not go public with this information — he merely spoke to the FBI after the transactions were uncovered by investigators. The victim’s attorney, Kristi Browne told NBC that it was Hastert who was at fault.

“Mr. Hastert has decided that rather than live up to his promise to compensate his victim for his molestation and resulting injury, he will ask his victim to pay him,” she said in a statement.

“He admits to agreeing to make payments, but then denies that it is an agreement that he has to keep. His response is predictable and we look forward to entering the discovery phase of the case.”

Hastert, who happens to have a long and friendly past with none other than the Podesta family, is currently serving his sentence at the Federal prison hospital in Rochester, Minnesota. Although Hastert wasn’t sentenced for the pedophilia, because the statute of limitations had run out, the judge labeled him a “serial child molester” and ordered him to enroll in a sex-offender treatment program. Hastert also admitted to, and apologized for, being a child rapist.

During the trial, Hastert admitted that he “mistreated” and “took advantage” of former students who came forward to say they were molested — three of them anonymously.

“What I did was wrong and I regret it,” he said at the time.

Disgustingly enough, this child rapist became speaker of the house after he’d raped these boys. Given the admitted and exposed widespread pedophilia among those in power, it is entirely possible, and indeed likely, that Hastert continued his disgusting abuse while serving as the house speaker.

Hastert only admitted to the abuse after a federal investigation. At first, the serial child molester denied the accusations and claimed to be a victim of extortion. However, an investigation later revealed the truth.

In spite of admitting to his crimes, Hastert is still victimizing Individual A by demanding he pay back the hush money.

According to NBC, not only does Hastert want his money back, he thinks Individual A should pay his attorney’s fees.

Unfortunately, pedophilia, as the Free Thought Project has exposed, is all too common among those in power. Sadly, however, those who attempt to draw attention to this problem, are labeled as conspiracy nuts or perpetrators of fake news.

As CBS anchor, Ben Swann pointed out, the information gleaned during Pizzagate, while some was outlandish, other facets deserved investigation. However, it was quickly marked as fake news and written off.

Interestingly, the “Pizzagate” investigation in many ways mirrors the high-profile pedophilia scandal that gripped the U.K., before being unceremoniously swept under the rug. In that case, historical abuse by politically connected elites, celebrities, and politicians was brought to light — with an official inquiry being started — only to have the inquiry “crumble” after heavy pressure was exerted by highly placed power brokers within the U.K. establishment.

This was almost the exact same scenario as what took place in the United States in what became known as the Franklin child sex ring coverup. Once the FBI took over the investigation from state authorities, it turned into a witch hunt to persecute the child victims – going so far as to charge them with perjury in a successful attempt to scare the other 70+ victims to recant their testimony regarding the child sex ring.


While the story received a measure of newspaper coverage, there was a complete blackout of the scandal by the mass media, thus most Americans have never heard about this scandal that reached all the way to the White House.

Apparently, as Hastert’s case illustrates, pedophilia is so widespread that politicians now have no problem publicly demanding their victims pay back hush money. But do not fret folks, the Washington Post assures you that this sort of thing does not happen.

  • David Cooper

    How is it possible that the government of The United States of America would impose a law that would place a statute of limitations on such horrendous, heinous crimes such as the acts of pedophilia. We have so much work to do in order to become a great nation!

    • Geff Smith

      Easy. The top Elite who run America and the West are all Pedophiles so they will place a Statute of Limitation’s on the Crime., Wonder is there a Statute of Limitations on the theft of money.

      • most diggity

        Or, as it were… their protection racket that operates our gov-ment, also know as the legal system run by 80,000 Federal lawyers in the guise of congress, senate, house, judicial, and before Trump… executive branches.

        • And… don’t go defending your home mortgage using the 5-year Statute of Limitations as a defense. The Supreme Court shot down ANY notion of a foreclosure suit the bank voluntarily drops because of improprieties and fraud in the process, or lack of proof… as being affected by the 5-year clause which has long been on the books. (i.e. They can re-sue for foreclosure as any time they want now.).

    • Greg Esres

      Part of the reason is that it’s difficult to establish truth after a long time. Evidence disappears, people forget or have their memories tainted, and people die.

      • Kaper

        You never forget something like that.

        • Greg Esres

          Yes, you do, or at least your memories become corrupted. But it’s not only the victim’s memories that are of concern.

          • Kaper

            Please Don’t tell me what I think or feel. What is with people?! I remember a few instances with great clarity. I suppose you learned that in some college psych course and you KNOW better(?!)

    • It was done to protect the elite primarily.

    • Jason O’Brien

      Do you know who has spent the most money in the past 10 years trying to lobby to get statutes of limitations enacted (and shortened) on child molestation cases? Wait for it…wait for it…the Catholic Church! Hooray. So at least some part of parishoners’ tithes are going to help get the Church out of trouble for allowing pedophiles to hurt kids. *sigh https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/may/12/catholic-church-fights-clergy-child-sex-abuse-measures

      • Kangaroo Caucus

        Not surprised

    • There is no statute of limitations or other such artificial contrivances in Common Law courts.

  • The Cat’s Vagina

    This isn’t the first case where the courts have shown more interest in crimes against money than harm done to children.

    The Harvard School of Business Ethic…if you want to get ahead in life; Lie, Cheat, then Steal. If that does not work; mix it up, Cheat, Steal, then Lie. Of course, I pick on Harvard because they are so well known for producing some of the most note-worthy business luminaries/White Collar Criminals known to man. Check the names of the most notable prisoners of “White Collar Crime”…in prison, yet still wealthy when paroled. Go figure. Tell me “IT” does not work!

    • Iqbal

      Isn’t it sad, that in today’s world, the only way to get ahead is to sell your soul.

      • zeynep

        It depends how you define getting ahead. Anyway, I share your despair…

    • Boxer36

      Personal experience. I attended a Holiday party in 2010 at a private home where the MIT and Harvard Business School faculty had gathered. I am a retired clergy, so the issue of the immorality of the recent economic Crash had been on my mind. It was like a fart in church when I asked a few party-goers standing with our drinks in the kitchen, “What kind of ethics classes do you provide for your students?” Some looked at each other inquisitively as if they had never before heard such a question.

      After an awkward pause, the host, a Harvard professor, said, “We assume they have come to us with having before addressed the question of personal values and morality. I don’t know whether we could influence them about such issues.” Make of that what you will. I do not at all agree with MrRetloc.

  • vanierstein

    Instead of inmates being released for “good behavior”,I think this constitutes BAD behavior,and his sentence should be LENGTHENED.The audacity,and sheer, unmitigated gall,needs to be paid back,in kind.Tack some additional time onto this bastards sentence.

  • junktex

    ‘Hastert was sentenced, not for raping children, but for illegally structuring bank transactions in an effort to cover up his sexual abuse of young members of a wrestling team he coached”I guess that explains why there has been no investigation of Pizzagate.Child abuse is legal.

    • gomurr

      Statute of limitations.

      • junktex

        Naw,chid abuse is legal.Legal system is a P.O.S.

  • Greg Esres

    It’s snarky and Inappropriate to associate this guy with the Podestas. The implication is that anyone who is friends with a child molester is also morally tainted. People with a dark side often keep it well-hidden and even those close to them aren’t aware of it.

    • AndyUK

      The Podestas have a lot of questions they’ve yet to answer. I think it’s a newsworthy factoid that he knows them.

  • Thanks for telling the truth Matt and thanks for those links (got some reading to do).

  • Teresa

    It’s seems likely pedophilia is widespread throughout the leadership in politics and Hollywood. I think this may be the glue that keeps everyone toeing the line. Having this kind of a hold over people would be major.

  • Steve

    Whats with perverts and politics? Perverts and teaching school?

  • Liberty Felix

    Do the power brokers actually let anyone remain in power that they cannot blackmail with this level of compromise~?
    Bet I know one.

  • AndyUK

    What should he have done? Lied to the fbi? I can’t see him having to pay the money back…

  • Thomas Grimes

    This is how low arrogant scumbags like him have become !! They dont even care anymore about being caught !! Hollywood and Washington just dont give a hoot because they protect each other in their little club .. not so little judging by recent events .

  • baruchzed

    Hastert must be getting special treatment in prison or he’d already be dead. Please let him spend an hour in genpop.

  • Lisa Hawks

    fucking corrupt politicians, you shouldn’t get one red cent back, you freak

  • most diggity

    Why not treat it like they have for the banksters whose foreclosure suits have long expired due to the statute of limitations (5 years)… yet are allowed to re-file as many times as they like because, “each payment represents a new (contract)” … even when they called the entire loan due at default?

    Hastert, by asking for his money back then defeats his own Statute of Limitations defense as well it seems to me.

  • Josep M Esteve

    Absolutely disgusting! And that attitude clearly shows there’s not a little bit of repentance in this guy’s mind. With those fake apologies that took his to a first class penitentiary, what we have here is a psychopathic profile. Lock him in the cell and throw the key!

  • Kaper

    Jeez… they use the same tactics as HRC did to the women Billy boy raped.

  • SD888

    Disgusting and EVIL. #Pizzagate is REAL.

  • Kangaroo Caucus

    Actually the child he raped should be entitled to ALL of Hastert’s assets as well as the right to drag a rusty blade across that pedo’s throat. These are the people the left aspire to be like. This site sucks by the way can’t even make a comment without 50 ads. I wont be returning
