Rick Gates is singing like a bird. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss.

“Former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates took the stand against his old boss Paul Manafort Monday, in a high-stakes moment in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Asked under oath if he committed crimes with Manafort, Gates answered “yes,” he did.

Gates was Manafort’s right-hand man for a decade, and was intimately involved in Manafort’s Ukrainian consulting work and his company’s finances. Originally charged with many of the same crimes as Manafort last year, Gates agreed in February to cooperate with Mueller’s team as part of a plea deal. Now, both the prosecution and defense are hoping his testimony will make their case — for different reasons.

On the stand, Gates testified that he and Manafort knowingly committed several crimes. He said that at Manafort’s direction, he didn’t report 15 foreign financial accounts they controlled to the US government, even though they knew that was illegal. He also testified that Manafort directed him to send millions in foreign cash as phony “loans” to his US companies, so he could avoid paying taxes on them.”*

Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. "The Trump administration announced Monday the reimposition of sanctions on Iran that were lifted as part of a nuclear agreement with the country. The sanctions will take effect at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday and follow through on the order President Trump gave when he withdrew from the nuclear pact in May. "The United States is fully committed to enforcing all of our sanctions, and we will work closely with nations conducting business with Iran to ensure complete compliance. Individuals or entities that fail to wind down activities with Iran risk severe consequences," Trump said in a statement Monday. "The JCPOA, a horrible, one-sided deal, failed to achieve the fundamental objective of blocking all paths to an Iranian nuclear bomb, and it threw a lifeline of cash to a murderous dictatorship that has continued to spread bloodshed, violence, and chaos," he added, using the acronym for the official name of the nuclear deal.”* Read more here: http://thehill.com/policy/defense/400525-trump-administration-reimposes-iran-nuclear-deal-sanctions Hosts: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian Cast: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.
