Hastert’s Attorney Could Seek To Dismiss Charges

(Chicago, IL) — The attorney for former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert may seek to dismiss charges against his client. Thomas Green told a federal judge yesterday that the allegations of Hastert attempting to hide millions of dollars used to cover up past sexual misconduct was leaked to the media by government sources. Green said the leaks were “the 800-pound gorilla” in the courtroom and could threaten a fair trial. Hastert wasn’t present during yesterday’s hearing.
