Robert Mueller moves to dismiss charges against Rick Gates following plea deal


Recommended Posts


Special counsel Robert Mueller has moved to dismiss recently-unveiled charges against Rick Gates, who pleaded guilty last week in federal court in Washington.
Mueller’s office announced last Thursday that a federal grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia had returned a new, 32-count indictment against Gates, and his longterm business partner Paul Manafort.

Shortly after noon Friday, Gates pled guilty to conspiracy against the United States and making a false statement. Gates — the fifth person to plead guilty as part of Mueller’s probe — also signaled his cooperation with the investigation.
Gates first pleaded not guilty to the eight count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Washington in late October.

Manafort has also pleaded not guilty to the October charges in Washington, and was hit with new charges on Friday.:snip:
