Six bombshells from Rick Gates' testimony in the Paul Manafort trial
09 August 2018, 07:35 | Glen Norman
"Mr. Manafort requested. that we did not disclose foreign bank accounts", Gates testified. Gates was also listed as an owner of several of the accounts. But prosecutors said they had previously received Ellis's approval to have Welch in the courtroom, something transcripts confirmed, according to Politico.
Mr Gates said he did, but the defence lawyer wasn't satisfied.
During his three days of testimony, Gates laid out in detail how payments to Manafort's company from political work in Ukraine were made to bank accounts in Cyprus and the money was never reported to accountants or the Internal Revenue Service.
"Yes, because I'm here to tell the truth and take responsibility for my actions", Gates said.
Paul Manafort recommended Stephen Calk, a Chicago banker involved in approving a loan at the center of Manafort's financial fraud trial, as secretary of the Army, according to testimony Tuesday from star witnessRick Gates.
Gates admitted during testimony on Monday to embezzling money from Manafort.
Greg Andres, an attorney with special counsel Robert Mueller's office, said the prosecution is running ahead of schedule.
For this Manafort was paid US$4million a year, in quarterly payments of US$1million, Gates recalled, though at some point the currency switched from U.S. dollars to Euros.
Rick Gates, the former business partner of Paul Manafort, testified Tuesday that he helped Manafort hide payments from offshore accounts.
Downing implied that Gates had lied on the stand, leading senior U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III, the 78-year-old Ronald Reagan nominee overseeing the trial, to confer with both sides at the bench. Downing asked Gates if he recalled telling the special counsel's office that he'd had four different extramarital affairs.
Mr Downing forced Gates to admit he had stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars from Manafort by filing bogus personal expenses claims and that he had engaged in an extramarital affair and kept an apartment in London for that objective.
"Those appear to be substantially different, don't they?" defense attorney Richard Westling asked Magionos, showing her Manafort's signatures on a loan application to the Bank of California and one of the foreign banking documents.
Indonesia evacuates tourists after Lombok quake kills 91
The Bali and Lombok airports continued operating on Sunday night, according to the director general of civil aviation. In 2004, the Indian Ocean tsunami killed 226,000 people in 13 countries, including more than 120,000 in Indonesia.
Gates, Manafort's longtime right-hand man, pleaded guilty in February to one count of conspiracy against the United States and one count of lying to an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent in exchange for testifying against his former boss.
Defense attorney Kevin Downing asked whether Gates' "secret life" - four affairs over the course of five years - happened during the same time he embezzled funds from Manafort.
Perlmutter, Moskowitz, and Sherman have pushed the VA to start new programs, some of which could benefit them personally, and essentially forced out or vetoed jobs for top officials - including Shulkin - who don't accede to their wishes, Arnsdorf says, basing his report on "hundreds of documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and interviews with former administration officials". Gates also provided the first witness testimony that overlaps with Trump's presidential campaign.
Downing summed up his questioning by asking Gates: "After all these lies, and the fraud you have committed, you expect this jury to believe you?"
The questioning is part of the Manafort defense strategy of presenting Gates to the jury as someone who lies and can not be trusted. The firm's director was known to Manafort and Gates as "Doctor K".
On the seventh day of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's criminal trial, the prosecution wasn't ready to rest.
