Paul Manafort...sat quietly as RICK GATES ascended the federal trial witness stand yesterday and testified that he and Paul were involved in a conspiracy to hide income from the Internal Revenue Service(IRS). Speaking directly to the 12 member jury...RICK GATES described how he and Paul had agreed to hide $29 million of the $60 million they had received from foreign sources. GATES admitted he was the big noise in the room with Paul taking a backseat due to other business dealings and pressing engagements...but...PAUL always knew the steps taken and discussed every aspect of their effort to HIDE INCOME.
