Paul Manafort’s former associate Rick Gates appeared before prosecutors on Monday where he testified that he committed multiple crimes on behalf of the former Trump campaign chairman.
According to Fox News, during his testimony in the federal trial against Manafort and Gates, Gates told prosecutor Greg Andres “yes” when asked if he committed a crime or was involved in criminal activity when working for Manafort.
“Were you involved in criminal activity when you worked for Paul Manafort?” Andres asked.
“Yes,” Gates responded.
“Did you commit a crime?” the prosecutor asked — and got another “yes” from Gates.
