Rick Gates to testify against Manafort

Rick Gates, a former aide to President Trump, will plead guilty to fraud-related charges in the coming days and will testify against Paul Manafort, his former business partner who once ran the Trump campaign, according to a report on Sunday.

“Rick Gates is going to change his plea to guilty,” the Los Angeles Times reported, citing a person knowledgeable of the development.

He will revise his plea in federal court in Washington, D.C., in the “next few days.”

Gates and Manafort were indicted last October by special counsel Robert Mueller on charges they laundered millions of dollars they were paid while working for a pro-Russian leader in Ukraine.
