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.”*
