Rick Gates, former advisor to Trump pleads guilty to fraud charges

New Jersey: The Los Angeles Times reported that Rick Gates, who was indicted along with Paul Manafort has pleaded guilty of charges of money laundering and illegal foreign lobbying and cooperate with US Special Council, Robert Mueller.

He has agreed to testify against Manafort, who was Donald Trump’s campaign chairman in the 2016 presidential elections for several months.

Mueller’s 2 special prosecutors negotiated the Gates deal in recent weeks with Washington defense attorney, Thomas C Green.

Mueller was responsible for indictment of 13 Russian nationals for interference in 2016 presidential elections. The guilt plea acceptance by Gate will significantly increase pressure on Manafort to admit to charges as have been leveled against Rick Gates. This will go a long way in proving Russian interference in influencing US Presidential elections.
