Andrew McCarthy predicted the defense's closing argument in Paul Manafort's trial will hone in on one person: Rick Gates.

Prosecutors say Manafort hid money in offshore bank accounts and then used it to pay for over $6 million in NY and Virginia real estate, items such as antique rugs and fancy clothes, including a $15,000 jacket made of ostrich skin.

Finally, Ellis told Manafort that "you have the absolute right to testify and you have the absolute right not to testify", and that the jury would be advised not to let Manafort's decision impact their own.
