Rick Gates was on the witness stand today in the trial of Paul Manafort, he confirmed that he committed crimes with Manafort, and embezzled “hundreds of thousands” of dollars.
“Did you commit crimes with Mr. Manafort?” the prosecutor asked.
“Yes,” Gates responded.
Gates, who is a former business partner of Manafort, testified that he joined Donald Trump’s former campaign manager in committing bank fraud and tax crimes.
He’s expected to detail the crimes he committed with Manafort as the trial resumes tomorrow.
