Richard Gates pleads guilty

At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) yesterday, far-right activists, perhaps forgetting what year it is, launched into an extended “lock her up” chant. This morning, during Donald Trump’s remarks, it happened again.

The conservatives’ timing could’ve been better.

Former campaign aide Rick Gates has agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy and making a false statement, becoming the third associate of President Donald Trump to make a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller.

Gates, who was indicted with former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort in October on conspiracy and other charges related to their lobbying work in Ukraine, arrived at federal court in Washington Friday afternoon for a 2 p.m. plea hearing.
