“Earlier Tuesday, Mueller’s team and defense attorneys for former Trump campaign official Rick Gates said that once again the special counsel is not ready for Gates to be sentenced.
Gates was Trump’s deputy campaign chairman at a time when the campaign had several suspicious communications with Russians or about Russia, including then-campaign chairman Manafort sharing polling data with Kilimnik, the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 and the party’s decision to change its platform regarding Russian intervention in Ukraine.
At the same time, the Russians’ military intelligence hacked Democratic targets and facilitated the public release of stolen emails to damage Trump’s opponents. Russians backed by a powerful oligarch also at that time allegedly ran a propaganda campaign on American social media sites to influence voters in a way that would help Trump.
party’s decision to change its platform regarding Russian intervention in Ukraine
Quid pro quo.
Top 2 campaign officials, both caught in lies by Mueller, both colluding with Russia and GIVING Russia something in exchange for assistance.
This is why Gulianni is now trying to say the CEO of the campaign (Trump) is not responsible for the actions of the campaign.
This is about Kliminik, the Russian, former employee of Manaforts:

“Kostya, the guy from the GRU”
The GRU is Russia’s largest foreign intelligence agency
