Ex-Trump campaign aide Rick Gates pleads guilty

Former Donald Trump campaign official Rick Gates pleaded guilty to two criminal charges in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign and related activities.

Gates is now the third Trump associate known to be working with Mueller’s investigation, and his plea deal will put the spotlight on former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Prosecutors are trying to pressure Manafort to speak with prosecutors about what he knows, particularly about the campaign.
