Gates Ready to Plead Guilty and Turn on Manafort, Report Says
Rick Gates, former deputy campaign manager for Donald Trump, walks to his vehicle after a status conference at the U.S. Courthouse in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Monday, Dec. 11, 2017. Paul Manafort, the onetime campaign chairman of Donald Trump, suggested dozens of editing changes to an opinion piece that ran this week in an English language Ukrainian newspaper, prosecutors for Special Counsel Robert Mueller said in a filing last Friday. Friday's filing includes an email between Manafort and Gates that appears to discuss how to respond to criticism of Manaforts work in Ukraine and elsewhere.
