"Now today was the third day of testimony where Gates appeared and he was under cross-examination by Manafort defense attorney Kevin Downing. And there was one small moment that came up where Downing actually interjected in his question and asked Gates about four extramarital affairs that he had as in a way that he, what he described as 'his secret life.' Now this was, this question was interrupted by an objection from the prosecution and then the judge actually cut it off. But Gates's answer to a similarly worded question was that he regretted doing a lot of the things that he did during his time working with Manafort."

"Later in the testimony we heard from a forensic accountant for the FBI who actually provided some very damning testimony where she detailed how she traced foreign wire transfers from Ukraine bank accounts that were connected to Ukrainian businessmen to Manafort's offshore accounts and then into the United States where Manafort benefited from those accounts. Now this is important because she was able to show the movement of this money and that it later became income that he should have reported on his taxes."

"Right now we're not, It's you know it's uncertain at this point how much the defense of a case the defense is going to put on. They don't have to put any case on if they want to and they could go direct to closing arguments or they could take multiple days presenting witnesses and their own testimony and evidence. And so at this point, we don't exactly know when the trial will wrap up but what we do know is that the government will wrap up by Friday they say, with these final 8 witnesses."
Paul Manafort's protege wrapped up his testimony Wednesday after implicating the former Trump campaign chairman and himself in financial crimes while also enduring stinging attacks on his character and credibility.
Rick Gates has been the government's star witness in Manafort's financial fraud trial, testifying how, at the behest of his longtime boss, he helped conceal millions of dollars in foreign income and submitted fake mortgage and tax documents.
Defense lawyers saw an opening to undermine his testimony by painting him as liar and a philanderer, getting him to admit to an extramarital affair and reminding jurors how he had lied to special counsel Robert Mueller's team while working out a plea deal for himself.
Associated Press reporter Chad Day said the government would try to "wrap up" the case by Friday.
The testimony, stretching across three days, created an extraordinary courtroom showdown between the two former Trump campaign aides who were indicted together by Mueller but who have since opted for radically different strategies: Manafort is the lone American charged by Mueller to opt for trial, whereas Gates pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate by testifying against his former boss.
