Rick Gates, a former business associate to President Donald Trump's ex-campaign manager Paul Manafort, will continue to testify against his former boss and is expected to face a tough cross examination on Tuesday.
The political consulting work that President Donald Trump's onetime campaign chairman Paul Manafort did to earn $60 million in Ukraine is expected to take the spotlight on Wednesday on the second day of his criminal trial.
