Federal prosecutors have acknowledged that Gates met with investigators over 50 times during the Mueller investigation.
Former Trump campaign associate Rick Gates on Tuesday was sentenced to 45 days in jail after pleading guilty to charges involving financial fraud and lying to federal investigators.
Gates also received three years of probation and a $20,000 fine, according to reports.
Gates cooperated with special counsel Robert Mueller’s office following his February 2018 guilty plea. He later testified in the trials of his former boss and onetime Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and President Trump’s longtime associate Roger Stone.
In a filing last week, U.S. attorneys said Gates’ cooperation with federal investigators amounted to “extraordinary assistance.”
