Six bombshells from Rick Gates' testimony in the Paul Manafort trial
On the seventh day of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's criminal trial, the prosecution wasn't ready to rest. Downing asked Gates if he recalled telling the special counsel's office that he'd had four different extramarital affairs.

There has been speculation that the President Donald Trump's in-laws may have benefited from the "chain migration" process that he has claimed endangers Americans and vowed to restrict. Green cards can also be obtained through employment, receiving asylum or refugee status, or in other special circumstances.

Back in February, the Washington Post reported Melania's parents had become legal permanent residents, had obtained green cards, and were awaiting scheduling for their naturalization oath. However, the attorney offered his own views on the matter.
