Day 7 of the Paul Manafort trial in Alexandria, Virginia on Wednesday saw the continuation of a blistering cross examination of Manafort's former business associate Rick Gates.
Gates was once again pressed on his personal life by Manafort's defense attorney Kevin Downing, asking Gates if he had told the special counsel's office that he had 4 extramarital affairs, prompting an immediate objection by the prosecution.
After a lengthy conference between lawyers before Judge Ellis, Downing asked Gates only about the time span of his "secret life." Gates replied that "I made many mistakes over many years" before stepping down from the witness stand, completing his testimony in the trial.
Jurors also heard from an FBI forensic accountant who testifed that she found 31 foreign bank accounts tied to Manafort.
