Rick Gates testifies in court he committed crimes with Paul Manafort – Daily Mail

Paul Manafort’s deputy Rick Gates told his fraud trial Monday that the two men committed crimes together as he began testifying at the former Trump campaign chief’s fraud trial. Gates was given a deal by Robert Mueller’s special counsel probe to become star witness at the fraud trial of his former boss. In return he could receive a lower sentence. Manafort stared at Gates as he began his evidence by detailing the plea deal, in which he admitted to two charges, one of conspiracy against the United States, and the other of making a false statement to the FBI. He was asked by Uzo Asonye, the prosecutor: ‘Were you involved in any criminal activity with Mr Manafort?’ He replied: ‘Yes.’
