The 73-year-old is charged with lying and breaking financial laws in an attempt to pay $3.5 million (£2.3 million) to cover up "past misconduct".

The charges may be connected to his history as a teacher and wrestling coach in Illinois in the 1970s.
One woman has said Mr Hastert sexually abused her brother then and she believes he was not the only victim.

Mr Hastert has not been charged with sexual abuse and his lawyer has not said what counts Mr Hastert will plead guilty to.
