Trump Aide To Plead Guilty In Russia Investigation

Published on 23 Feb 2018, 21:47
Former Donald Trump campaign official Rick Gates will plead guilty to two criminal charges. This in special counsel Robert Mueller's wide-ranging investigation of Russian meddling into the 2016 presidential campaign and related activities.
His arraignment is scheduled for Friday afternoon.
Gates is now the third Trump associate known to be working with Mueller's investigation. His plea deal will put the spotlight on former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Prosecutors are trying to pressure Manafort to speak with prosecutors about what he knows. Particularly they are interested in his knowledge about the campaign.
Gates was Manafort's right-hand man for a decade. He was privy to most, if not all, of Manafort's activities during the campaign and stayed in the Trump orbit after Manafort's exit. Manafort has pleaded not guilty to all charges against him.
