  1. Hastert Indictment Offers Few Clues About Alleged MisconductRead the original story w/Photo

    4 min ago | Time

    A newly unveiled indictment against former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert accuses the Illinois Republican of agreeing to pay $3.5 million in hush money to keep a person from the town where he was a longtime high school teacher silent about "prior misconduct." But it offers few hints about a central question: What was the alleged wrongdoing? The concise federal grand jury indictment handed down Thursday accuses Hastert, who once was second in line to the U.S. presidency, of agreeing to pay the money to a person identified in the document only as "Individual A," to "compensate for and conceal his prior misconduct against" that person.
