Paul Manafort's fraud and tax evasion trial resumes for its sixth day, opening with the former Trump campaign chairman's former business associate Rick Gates taking the stand again. Gates, who was called to testify just after 4 p.m on Monday, is expected to face questioning for at least three more hours in an Alexandria, Virginia, courthouse.
Gates has already testified about illegal activity he undertook with Manafort from 2008-2015, claiming that he underreported Manafort's income, lied to Manafort's accountants and to the FBI.
The trial is the first of Mueller's prosecutions to reach a jury. But lawyers have so far made no mention of Trump or possible campaign coordination with the Kremlin, the central question behind the special counsel's investigation.
Last week, Manafort was accused of amassing "secret income" and falsifying tax returns and using fake loans to pay less in taxes, among other things.
