Former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert will plead guilty to bank reporting charges that are connected to the sexual misconduct accusations he's facing, according to court proceedings Thursday.
In May, Hastert was accused of misleading the federal government about large bank account withdrawals.
The indictment said Hastert arranged payments to someone referred to as "Individual A" to conceal misconduct.
