Trump ex-campaign aide pleads guilty
President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman,
and a former business associate, Rick Gates, surrendered to federal authorities on Monday in the first charges stemming from the special investigation into possible ties between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia.
Manafort and Gates surrendered to federal authorities in Washington, and are expected in court to face charges brought by Mueller’s team, according to one person familiar with the investigation. A second person said that Gates had worked out an arrangement to turn himself in on Monday.
The charges, which have not been made public, are the first in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign.
