Rick Gates continues to cooperate - Mueller

Former political consultant and official of United States President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, Rick Gates, "continues to cooperate with respect to several ongoing investigations," Special Counsel Robert Mueller stated in a court filing on Friday.

Gates, a longtime business associate of Trump's former campaign chief Paul Manafort, pleaded guilty last February to charges raised against him by Mueller's prosecutors in October 2017, which include conspiracy against the United States and making false statements to federal authorities. As part of his plea bargain, Gates testified against Manafort before a Virginia court last August, when he provided details about his former partner's business dealings.
