Rick Gates Took The Stand In Manafort Trial

Rick Gates finally took the stand in the federal fraud case against his former business partner Paul Manafort and testified that he and Manafort conspired to commit bank and tax fraud. 

Gates, considered a star witness against Manafort, struck a plea deal with prosecutors to cooperate in the case against Manafort.  

During his testimony, Gates said that Manafort requested “over the years” that Gates make wire transfers from foreign accounts “primarily in Cyprus,” and those funds were not reported.  

He also testified that he lied to Manafort’s bookkeeper and accountants...but don't worry he's not lying here!
