Another domino falls. Former Trump aide Rick Gates to plead guilty; agrees to testify against Manafort, sources say

Post by donttreadonme » Sun Feb 18, 2018 5:03 pm

A former top aide to Donald Trump's presidential campaign will plead guilty to fraud-related charges within days – and has made clear to prosecutors that he would testify against Paul J. Manafort Jr., the lawyer-lobbyist who once managed the campaign.

The change of heart by Trump's former deputy campaign manager, Richard W. Gates III, who had pleaded not guilty after being indicted in October on charges similar to Manafort's, was described in interviews by people familiar with the case.

"Rick Gates is going to change his plea to guilty,'' said a person with direct knowledge of the new developments, adding that the revised plea will be presented in federal court in Washington "within the next few days.''

That individual and others who discussed the matter spoke on condition of anonymity, citing a judge's gag order restricting comments about the case to the news media or public.

tRump will tweet, probably tomorrow morning, that this latest guilty plea means he's entirely exonerated.

Or Ryan. Or Orrin Hatch, PPT of the Senate.

Or Tillerman, or...so on down the line to Kierstjen Nielsen.

And he'll still be your president, you'll still get your tax break, and Hillary still lost.

Get over it.
