Witness says he is a crook in case against Manafort

NY Times:

Rick Gates Says He Committed Crimes With Paul Manafort

  • For decades, Mr. Gates was the right-hand man to Mr. Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman who is accused of tax and bank fraud. He began testifying in federal court on Monday.
  • Asked by prosecutors whether he was involved in any criminal activity with Mr. Manafort, Mr. Gates responded, “Yes.”
If a guy would lie and steal from his business partner, why wouldn't he lie to avoid a long prison sentence?  That is the prosecutor's dilemma in presenting such a witness.   We know that the DOJ got a witness to lie to convict Sen. Stevens.  Why should we trust them on this?
