Trevor Noah: Why Paul Manafort Must Be So Proud

Paul Manafort

Mr Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, has indicted more than 30 people - including 26 Russians - in connection with his probe into whether members of Trump's campaign colluded with Russia to help get the real estate tycoon elected.

Gates also testified on Tuesday how he and Manafort hid income earned for political work in Ukraine, explaining their efforts to set up companies in Cyprus so they could easily be paid by Ukranian businessman who held bank accounts there.

Gates, who was Manafort's longtime business associate, had testified on Tuesday that he had an affair in London, where he maintained an apartment for two months.

He appeared to hedge at points, reluctant to speak plainly of his crimes.

"They were documented as loans, but in reality they were funds moving between the accounts". These accounts, Gates added, predated his tenure at Manafort's DMP International. The first made clear Manafort was upset about his 2014 tax bill.

"I am here to tell the truth and to take responsibility for my actions". "This is a disaster".

When Trump asked Perlmutter, a friend and confidante, to help put together his government in December 2016, he agreed to be an outside adviser, selected veterans as his focus, and roped in two other friends, Palm Beach doctor Bruce Moskovitz and lawyer Marc Sherman, Arnsdorf says.

Defense lawyer Kevin Downing guided Gates on a tour through the wide array of lies he's told, and sought to paint him as a man not to be trusted. Manafort then sent to a bank a version of the statement that showed $3 million in profit that year rather than $600,000 in losses, Gates said in describing emails prosecutors presented in court. They hope this will encourage more attorneys to become members.

Behind the scenes, he was equally integral.

Gates laying out a roadmap on how he and Manafort allegedly dodged USA taxes. after admitting Monday they committed numerous crimes as business partners.

But Weissmann has notably not questioned any witnesses at Manafort's Virginia trial.

Andres asked if Gates, who had previously testified to meeting with the special counsel's office 20 times for trial prep, had been instructed by the special counsel's team how to answer certain questions. The charges are not related to Manafort's work with the Trump campaign.

And Gates faced fraud charges from the special counsel after it discovered he had written a letter to a Swiss movie production company falsely claiming that his own production company was investing in a film project by his friend, Steve Brown. He admitted that on his own.

Downing said an admission of that kind by Gates could lead the special counsel's office to tear up his plea agreement, which is contingent on his truthful testimony during the criminal trial of Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman. But a transcript of a bench conference held before the cross-examination shows that Downing hadn't planned to get into his infidelity.

Judge T.S. Ellis III then asked Gates to clarify if those "loans" were actually just income-specifically payment for services-earned and not declared by Manafort. Gates also said he may have submitted personal expenses for reimbursement by Trump's inaugural committee, which he helped operate.

However, when Andres returned to the podium for another chance to question Gates, Gates said that Manafort did reach out to a Ukrainian businessman before his Federal Bureau of Investigation interview to get more information about the entity that the businessman used to pay him and to make sure that it was "clean", meaning it was only used to pay Manafort.

Gates admitted to cheating on his wife about 10 years ago, but denied using company money to fund his affair, even as Downing sarcastically noted the apartment Gates kept in the United Kingdom: "A flat?" However, Gates also said the agents did not ask about tax returns and "the majority of the Cypriot accounts were closed" at the stage.
