Mueller’s ‘Star Witness’ Rick Gates Falls Apart During Cross-Examination by Manafort Lawyers – Perjures Himself

Published

on

Paul Manafort’s legal team painted Rick Gates, a former business associate to Manafort as a liar who embezzled millions of dollars to fund his secret life with his mistress in a blistering cross-examination Tuesday.
Rick Gates previously pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with Mueller; he was even referred to as the Special Counsel’s ‘star witness.’

On Tuesday, the Special Counsel’s ‘star witness’ Rick Gates fell apart during the cross-examination and perjured himself which is very damning for the prosecution.

Gates appeared nervous on Tuesday, using the phrases “it’s possible” and “I don’t recall” many times as he was grilled by Manafort’s lawyers, reported The Guardian.

Manafort’s lawyers continued to erode Gates’ credibility. At one point Manafort’s lawyer Kevin Downing asked Gates, “After all the lies you’ve told and fraud you’ve committed, you expect this jury to believe you?”

“Yes.” Gates replied.

Tuesday’s court transcripts are in and it shows Rick Gates completely fell apart, lied many times and perjured himself–which of course infuriated Judge Ellis.
A lawyer who obtained Tuesday’s transcripts breaks down the courtroom drama and shows where Rick Gates was caught lying and committed perjury.

“One thing is clear: Gates is lying and the Special Counsel has suborned perjury with their star witness.

Haven’t seen a witness with this bad a selective memory in a while. Transcript to follow.”

Defense: “Do you recall when you first started giving false and misleading information to the Office of the Special Counsel?”

Gates avoids directly answering the question – indicating how he was coached by the Special Counsel.

HERE IS WHERE RICK GATES PERJURES HIMSELF:

Manafort’s lawyer persists, and here we catch Rick Gates in his first lie:

“I didn’t provide false and misleading information to the Special Counsel’s office.”

Their star witness just committed perjury.

Judge Ellis blasts Rick Gates for lying.
Defense: If you didn’t lie, then why did you plead guilty to providing false information?

Gates backtracks: “Under one instance I did.”

Judge Ellis calls Gates out: “Well, so previously, you said you didn’t provide false information.”

Judge Ellis blasts Gates AGAIN for lying!

The patience of Judge Ellis is wearing thin.

Judge: “You just said you just had a bad memory. Did you provide false information or did you have just a bad memory?”

Gates: “Your Honor, I provided false information to the Special Counsel prior to my plea agreement.” pic.twitter.com/TRmnOZ158P

The crooked and corrupt Andrew Weissmann confronted Gates about his lies.

Who confronted Gates about his lies?

The equally crooked Andrew Weissmann. The Special Counsel was in a bind and had to charge their witness with lying or they’d lose all credibility with the jury. pic.twitter.com/ANbLMKQj16

Manafort’s lawyers squeeze Gates and get him to admit he “knowingly and intentionally lied.”

Remember Gates blaming his memory on why he was charged with lying to the Special Counsel?

“THIS GUY HAS ZERO CREDIBILITY”

Defense: Was that the $125K you stole from a SunTrust account?

Gates: “I don’t know what you’re referring to.”

Did the Special Counsel question you about closing the SunTrust account?

Gates: “I don’t recall”

This guy has ZERO credibility. pic.twitter.com/d9UMVVAFSO

Gates caught in another lie!

Manafort’s lawyer has the notes from the Special Counsel’s interviews with Gates. It seems like Weissmann caught Gates in another lie, this time about the SunTrust account.

Gates changes his language again.

I feel like I’m taking crazy pills – Gates keeps contradicting himself.

Judge Ellis blasted Rick Gates again after he said, “Mr. Manafort was very good about knowing where the money is and knowing where to spend it.”

Judge Ellis responds, “Well, he missed the amounts of money you stole from him, though, didn’t he?”

ITALY FIRST! Italians Follow Trump, Cutting Funding To Migrants To Help Their Own Citizens Who Are In Need

Published

on

By

The most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by VOICE OF EUROPE:

With 5 million Italians living in poverty, Italian deputy Prime Minister, Matteo Salvini, has stated that they will cut the migrant funds and use that money for Italians.

“I don’t like the fact that with 5 million Italians living in poverty we have to spend €5 billion-a-year for these migrants,” he said at a rally a few days ago. “We will cut these funds and use them for Italians”.

He went on to say that “with fewer taxes, with fewer foreigners, with more security, we will once again be the most beautiful country in the world”.

Last week a poll was released putting Salvini’s party at 31 per cent, ahead of the Five Star Movement by two points. Salvini also has a favourable approval rating of 56 per cent. A full seven points ahead of Five Star Leader Luigi Di Maio.

There is speculation that the surge in his popularity, due to his weekly rallies and photo-ops the past few months, will result in a fresh election against his coalition partners, the Five Star Movement, which he would likely win.

IT’S OVER: Trump Just Released His First Re-Election Campaign Ad & it’s Going Viral

Published

on

By

President Trump tweeted out what is seemingly the first re-election campaign ad for 2020 and it went viral overnight. This will give you chills.

It’s about 2 minutes long and it starts by playing audio of President Trump’s 2016 campaign promises from different speeches. Then, it shows the images of him keeping these promises.

Then, in the final minute of the video, you hear President Trump deliver a message directly to the “forgotten man” and “forgotten women” in a truly emotional way that sums up President Trump and the patriots who support him.

Never ever ever give up. Never stop fighting for what you believe in, and for the people who care about you.

Carry yourself with dignity and pride.

Relish the opportunity to be an outsider. Embrace that label because it’s the outsiders who change the world and who make a real and lasting difference.

Treat the word impossible as nothing more than motivation.

I am asking all citizens to embrace this renewal of the American spirit. Seize this moment. Believe in yourselves. Believe in your future. And believe once more in America.

I will fight for you with every breath in my body. And I will never ever let you down.

The forgotten man and the forgotten woman. You’re not forgotten anymore.”

Al Sharpton Doesn’t Rule Out Running For President, Criticizes Trump

Published

By

Rev. Al Sharpton, one of the most visible figures of Black Lives Matter, has not ruled out running for president in 2020.

Sharpton said he wasn’t currently exploring a presidential run but did not rule out running, BuzzFeed News reported Tuesday.
“I never rule anything out,” Sharpton said.

Sharpton was in Florida Sunday leading protests against Florida’s stand your ground laws after the death of Markeis McGlockton. Michael Drejka shot and killed McGlockton in July. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri did not charge Drejka due to Drejka claiming he feared for his life.

Sharpton has been highly critical of President Donald Trump, calling him a racist at a Sunday rally because Trump stumped for Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis of Florida and didn’t mention McGlockton’s name.

“You want to know why we call you a racist? [You] talk like a racist and you walk like a racist and you act like a racist!” Sharpton said at the rally, according to BuzzFeed News.
Sharpton also criticized Pastor Darrell Scott, who called Trump “the most pro-black president that we’ve had in our lifetime,” on Aug. 3. He also argued that black ministers were cowards for not bringing up McGlockton’s name when they visited the White House that day.

“I won’t bow to Pharaoh, and I won’t bow to Donald Trump,” Sharpton said.

If Sharpton were to run, he would join a crowded Democratic primary. Sen. Kamala Harris of California, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and former Vice President Joe Biden are just a few high-profile Democrats who have hinted at running for the Democratic Party presidential nomination.
Sharpton has run for office before. He ran for the Senate three times in the 1980s and 1990s and the presidency in 2004.
