Rick Gates, the former business partner of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, has testified that former Obama White House counsel Greg Craig helped spin a report in the media on behalf of the Kremlin-linked Ukrainian government.

The Justice Department’s case against Craig, 74, stems from Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation. It focuses on the public relations work performed for Ukraine by Craig and the law firm he worked for — Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher, and Flom — throughout 2012.

The article goes on to state the following:

Manafort, found guilty of tax and bank fraud and other violations, worked alongside Gates to assist President Viktor Yanukovych. Skadden and Craig worked out a deal with Manafort for a report on Ukraine’s controversial prosecution of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

Gates pleaded guilty to conspiracy and false statements. He’s cooperating with the government, taking the stand for Thursday since testifying against Manafort last year.
