Paul Manafort’s former deputy Rick Gates testified against his former boss on Tuesday that Manafort used email to direct Gates to shift money through offshore accounts.

According to media reports, prosecutors began to show emails between Manafort and Gates that appear to confirm Gates’ story that Manafort sought to move money his consulting company earned from Ukraine through Cypriot accounts.

WIBC host Tony Katz discussed the latest development in the Manafort trial Tuesday:

“This is about the work that they did in Ukraine. And there is nothing against the law when it comes to working with another nation, consulting with another nation, lobbying, etc. But there are certain things you have to disclose, and certainly – as we have all learned since the days of Capone – nobody gets out of paying taxes. Nobody gets out of paying taxes.”
