Another Ex-Trump Associate Is Getting Jail Time

Donald Trump’s one-time deputy campaign manager Rick Gates will be serving time in jail after pleading guilty last year to financial fraud and lying to investigators, according to reports.

Politico report on Tuesday that Gates has received 36 months of probation and will have to serve a total of 45 days in jail on weekends “or in accordance with the schedule of the probation office.”

The sentence might seem light, but Twitter users still blasted Gates and Trump himself for yet another example of a Trump associate facing a reckoning for corruption.
