Paul Manafort trial: Expected star witness Rick Gates 'may not' testify during ex-Trump aide's court case

Paul Manafort trial: Expected star witness Rick Gates 'may not' testify during ex-Trump aide's court caseProsecutors have raised the possibility that their expected star witness “may not” testify against Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort, as they concentrated on Mr Manafort’s lavish lifestyle during the second day of his bank fraud trial. The trial is the first courtroom test for Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who was tasked last year with investigating Russia’s efforts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election and to determine whether any of President Trump’s campaign team were involved. Mr Manafort, 69, is charged with tax fraud, bank fraud and failing to report foreign bank accounts.
