As you may recall, yesterday we predicted that Team Manafort was going to try to smear Rick Gates’ already smeared reputation, implying infidelities and so on. We predicted it wouldn’t work, and well…
Manafort’s atty Kevin Downing: “After all the lies you’ve told and the fraud you committed, you expect the jury to believe you today?”
Rick Gates: “Yes.”
Gates: “I’m here to tell the truth. Mr. Manafort had the same path. [But] I’m here.”
