Meeting That Gates Admits Lying About Matches Rohrabacher Dinner

Rick Gates former Trump campaign aide expected to plead guilty in Russia case

A court filing shows Gates has agreed to plead to charges accusing him of conspiring against the USA government related to fraud and unregistered foreign lobbying as well as lying to federal authorities in a recent interview.

Manafort, who is thought by some to be a central focus in Mueller's probe, is still facing multiple charges.

The guilty plea could come as early as Friday afternoon, ABC News reported, citing a letter Gates sent his friends and family earlier in the day. Unlike Gates, Manafort was present at a much-discussed campaign meeting in Trump Tower in 2016 with a Russian lawyer, Donald Trump Jr. and others. Like Manafort, Gates used money from offshore accounts to pay for his personal expenses, including his mortgage, children's tuition, and interior decorating of his Virginia residence. Gates later shuffled most of his legal team. The charges also include nine charges of bank fraud and bank fraud conspiracy related to loans that were obtained through false and fraudulent pretenses, representations and promises. "I imagine the investigators saw those and couldn't believe their luck".

A court filing shows Gates has agreed to plea to charges accusing him of conspiring against the US government related to fraud and unregistered foreign lobbying as well as lying to federal authorities.

He now faces between 57 and 71 months in prison as well as a fine of up to $200,000, although that punishment is likely to be reduced at sentencing, if he continues to work with investigators.

In criminal cases involving allegations of fraud, it is typically helpful to have "an insider" who can "explain to the jury why certain acts were done, documents and companies created, and the like", Cramer said.

Gates' history with Manafort dates back many years. "There is now a tremendous amount of pressure on Manafort".

JOHNSON: Even after he left the campaign, Rick Gates stayed on in the campaign. Prosecutors originally tried to file the new indictment with the pre-existing one, in Washington, D.C., but Manafort would not agree to it, according to the article, and that could lead to two separate trials.

The points record is one Vinatieri has been well aware of. "I guess I'll take these one year at a time and see where it ends up". And with a new head coach and hopefully getting Andrew Luck back to win some games, Vinatieri could go out as a victor too.

Gates served on the Trump campaign at the same time that Manafort, Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner met with a team of Russians in Trump Tower in June 2016.

"This indictment has nothing to do with the White House or the president". President Trump did not address the latest developments but in the past he has sought to distance himself from Gates and Manafort.

Manafort pleaded not guilty to Mueller's first round of charges, which were filed in Washington in October.

Manafort was defiant, refusing to cut a deal.

Rick Gates departs Federal District Court, Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2018, in Washington. Manafort has pleaded not guilty to all charges against him. Some of this charged conduct today in the indictment continued through the course of the election and beyond.

"That's a big reason why his deal is considerably worse than Flynn's deal", he added.

George Papadopoulos, a former campaign foreign policy adviser, pleaded guilty to lying a year ago.
