Another former Trump campaign aide pleads guilty in Mueller probe

Washington (dpa) - A former top official in President Donald Trump‘s campaign pleaded guilty on Friday to conspiracy and lying to the FBI, making him the third person associated with the Trump campaign to make a deal with special prosecutor Robert Mueller.

Rick Gates was indicted with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in October on conspiracy and other charges related to their lobbying work in Ukraine.

According to a new set of charges, Gates took part in a conspiracy to hide millions of dollars that he and Manafort obtained for their consulting work related to Ukraine.

The documents also say he lied about a March 19, 2013 meeting attended by Manafort and others and that he falsely denied that Ukraine was discussed.

The development comes a day after Mueller filed a new 32-count indictment against Gates and Manafort that accuses Manafort of laundering more than 30 million dollars in income that he hid from US authorities with the assistance of Gates.

It follows a guilty plea on Tuesday by a lawyer with ties to Ukraine who admitted he lied to investigators about his contacts with Gates. Former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos earlier pleaded guilty to charges filed by Mueller.

The special prosecutor is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible ties to the Trump operation. The latest indictment refers to activities that took place years before the 2016 election and does not involve the Trump campaign.

The guilty pleas place more pressure on Manafort, who led the Trump campaign from June 2016 to August 2016. His lawyer has called the charges "ridiculous."
