— latest on the Manafort trial
> Rick Gates, the star witness in the fraud trial of ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, admitted having an extramarital affair in London as defense attorneys attempted to undermine his credibility. TURNCOAT ADMITS CHEATING: Rick Gates, the star witness testifying against his former boss, ex-Trump campaign adviser Paul Manafort, after taking a plea deal, acknowledged having an extramarital relationship in London while working for Manafort as the defense accused him of leading a “secret” and “second” life … For the last two days in court, Gates has testified that he and Manafort committed bank and tax fraud together. But during cross-examination on Tuesday, the defense painted Gates as living a “secret life” in London and accused him of embezzling money from Manafort’s foreign accounts at center of the trial to indulge in an extramarital affair in Britain. The questioning was part of the Manafort defense strategy of presenting Gates to the jury as someone who lies and cannot be trusted.
