Rick Gates set to take the stand in Manafort trial

Rick Gates set to take the stand in Manafort trial | 06 Aug 2018 | Rick Gates, the longtime deputy of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, is set to take the stand Monday afternoon in Manafort's trial on charges of bank and tax fraud related to overseas earnings, a lawyer for Gates told POLITICO. Gates [who allegedly stole millions of dollars from Paul Manafort] is considered the star witness for the prosecution against Manafort -- and his testimony in an Alexandria, Virginia, courtroom is the first time he's known to have faced Manafort since he agreed to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller's team in February.
