Rick Gates, a Former top Donald Trump campaign official, is expected to plead guilty in federal court on Friday. This comes hours after prosecutors indicted him under accusations of not paying millions of dollars in taxes.

The guilty plea signals Gates is ready to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators, which could put more pressure on his longtime associate, former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort.

It was not immediately clear what charges Gates would admit to. The development comes after Robert Mueller announced on Thursday that he was charging Gates and Manafort with running an elaborate scheme to launder $75 million and dodge tens of millions in taxes.
