Paul Manafort's former associate Rick Gates has admitted that he committed crimes for the onetime Trump campaign manager when he was in his employ.


Fox News reported that during his testimony in the federal trial against both men Monday, Gates answered "yes" when prosecutor Greg Andres asked him if he'd done crimes or been 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.
