Former Trump campaign official Rick Gates pleads guilty to 2 charges | The DRUMPF WORLD IS FALLING!

This is now on a drum beat that is running as fast as Nixon’s final day were in late June of 1974.  If this keeps running this way DRUMPF will be out in just months or we are going to be in big trouble people!


Rick Gates, a former top official in President Trump’s campaign, pleaded guilty Friday afternoon to conspiracy and lying to the FBI, striking a deal to cooperate and provide information to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s ongoing investigation.The plea caps a tumultuous 24 hours for Gates in which he was hit with fresh charges, changed lawyers and admitted crimes.

The guilty plea also marks a busy period for Mueller’s investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and related issues. He charged 13 Russians this month with participating in a criminal scheme to disrupt the election and a London-based lawyer pleaded guilty Tuesday to lying to FBI agents on the case.

According to a criminal information — a document filed earlier Friday with the permission of the defendant — Gates conspired to defraud the United States regarding the money he and his business partner Paul Manafort earned while working for a political party in Ukraine and lied to the FBI in a Feb. 1, 2018 interview about a 2013 meeting between Manafort, a lobbyist, and a congressman.


Gates, who also served on Trump’s inaugural committee, admits to conspiracy and lying to the FBI and will cooperate with special counsel.
