Former Speaker of the House and high level politician Dennis Hastert is a staple example of pedophilia in politics: a common reference for people speaking on the probability of high level pedophilia and sex crimes being real.
A couple years ago, Dennis Hastert was convicted of paying someone off, engaging in fraud to cover up his raping of children and was sentenced to a measly 15 months in federal prison. He wasn’t charged with actually raping children: he was simply charged with crimes related to covering it up.
These videos explored the news when it broke.
Now, he has been set free early after only 13 months incarceration.
According to USA Today:
“Former U.S. House speaker Dennis Hastert has been released from a federal prison 13 months after he began serving a sentence for a bank fraud conviction linked to his effort to buy the silence of a former student he sexually abused during his days as a high school wrestling coach.
Hastert, 75, pleaded guilty to illegal structuring of bank withdrawals as part of an effort to circumvent federal banking laws as he went about paying off someone identified in court as “Individual A” for abuse that occurred more than 30 years ago during his years as a teacher and coach in Yorkville, Ill.”
To illustrate just how powerful Hastert is, a comment on Reddit pointed out that when President Bush addressed Congress after 9/11, he was standing behind the president. He was high-up in the Bush Administration.
This is reminiscent of another high level pedophile involved with corporate power as opposed to political: the DuPont fortune heir Robert Richards IV, convicted of raping his 3 year old daughter, to receive almost no punishment.
According to Vanity Fair:
“In an alarming twist, the judge who sentenced the heir to the du Pont fortune let him off with no jail time, arguing that six-foot-four Richards “will not fare well” in prison.
Instead of sentencing him to prison for raping a toddler, Judge Jan Jurden ruled that Richards would benefit from treatment. Critics have since noted that such treatment is usually only offered to drug addicts or those in possession of child pornography, not convicted rapists. The details of the case became public this month when Richards’s ex-wife sued him for damages related to the abuse of their daughter.”
What else can be said? There is something much more to the depth of corruption that we can only piece together and theorize about, when it comes to high level pedophilia.
There is something deep and dark here, and it’s something that needs theories and investigation to even begin understanding.
