How “Individual A” helped Dennis Hastert become Speaker of the House

Curtis T. Williams

Curtis T. Williams (Individual A), a former star wrestler and victim of Dennis Hastert's proclivity to molest under-aged boys, was instrumental in helping his former coach become Speaker of the House.

On December 19, 1998 Congressman Bob Livingston, who was slated to replace Newt Gingrich as Speaker of the House, was forced to announce his resignation from Congress. This was due to the fact that illegal FBI surveillance on him had uncovered Livingston's adulterous affair.

Thus clearing the path for Hastert to become Speaker instead.

On December 21st, just two days later, the Chicago Sun Times trotted out Curtis T. Williams to say a few nice words about the man (Hastert) who he now says had molested him nearly 25 years earlier.

Now had Williams divulged the fact that Hastert had molested him when he was a child in that suspicious interview with the Chicago Sun Times, Hastert would not only not become Speaker, he too would have had to resign from Congress in disgrace. And quite possibly would have faced criminal prosecution.

I wonder if that had anything to do with Hastert's decision to secretly pay Williams $3.5 million in cash?

More importantly, did that have anything to do with the Feds' decision to keep Curtis T. Williams' identity a secret and not have him testify against Hastert?

You bet it did!

As for Scott Cross (Individual D), he did testify against Hastert. And then in a March 2017 phone interview with IP2P, Cross was asked, “Do you think Hastert stopped his pederast activities when he left Yorkville High School to get into politics?” He immediately responded with an emphatic "No!"

But how does what Cross said square with this picture?

It doesn't. What is Cross not telling us?

More to come...

ALERT: The Hastert story is about to take a wild turn!

Chicago Tribune's Christy Gutowski reported that former House Speaker Dennis Hastert retracted his accusation that Mr. Doe (Individual A) was extorting money from him in her story on the civil case of James Doe vs Dennis Hastert.

She obviously did not fact check that claim.

Because the former speaker is still implying that he is being blackmailed in recent court documents.

IP2P emailed Gutowski to get verification of the claim that Hastert retracted his accusation.

Ms. Christy Gutowski

Did you fact check Ms. Browne's claim that Dennis Hastert has retracted his accusation that "Individual A" was extorting money from him?

Where and when did Hastert make this retraction?

In response, Kristi Browne, the victim's attorney, said in her recent court filing: "Hastert engaged in illegal conduct by failing to make proper disclosures in connection with withdrawing funds from his bank accounts in violation of banking law, rendering himself and the agreement between the parties the subject of a federal investigation. Hastert was the first to disclose his agreement to pay Mr. Doe to federal officials, but falsely accused Mr. Doe of extortion, an accusation he has since retracted."

Gutowski did not reply to our email.

When Gutowski was contacted by phone to discuss the seemingly fraudulent claim that Hastert had retracted his accusation, she refused to answer any questions and stated: "You will have to speak to my editor, I am just a reporter" before abruptly hanging up.

Is she implying that her editor at the Chicago Tribune is responsible for the false reporting?

Why would the Tribune do this? Especially since the Tribune has already reported that it knows the identity of "Individual A"?

(Reporters Shine Light on Alleged Victims in Dennis Hastert Case)

Perhaps the Tribune knows that if it was determined that "Individual A" was indeed blackmailing Dennis Hastert that the public would demand to know who he is?

The Tribune also knows that if it were to reveal the identity of "Individual A" it would not only confirm that Hastert was being blackmailed. It would also raise new and serious questions that would open a can of worms that U.S. Attorney Zachary Fardon desperately wants to keep closed to the public.

And lets face it, we all know that when the U.S. attorneys office in Chicago says "jump", the Tribune asks: "how high?"

Nice try Zachary. But we are not falling for your "fake news"

Buckle up, folks. The Hastert story is about to take a wild turn!
