Rick Gates is a former aide to the Trump campaign who is best known for being charged with money laundering as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into ties between the campaign and Russia. In 2018, Gates pled guilty to lying to investigators and became a cooperator by helping the investigation that led to the convictions of Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign manager, and Roger Stone, his longtime advisor. In this episode of the Braver Angels Podcast, Ciaran presses Rick on his role in Manafort’s criminal financial schemes, his turn as star witness, and how he feels about President Trump now. They also discuss Rick’s lessons learned — and how the country might come together in the wake of the upcoming election.
