In Paul Manafort trial, Rick Gates admits to stealing money, having affair
Tensions are rising at the trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, as the defense continues questioning its star witness, Manafort’s former protege Rick Gates. Gates admitted to stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from his former boss, some of that money helping him carry an affair in London that he hid from his wife. The defense hopes to paint Gates as the real villain, responsible for the crimes that prosecutors charge Manafort with committing. NBC’s justice correspondent Pete Williams reports for TODAY.
