WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork/CBS News/AP) — Rick Gates, a former Trump campaign adviser and associate of ex-campaign chairman Paul Manafort , is expected to plead guilty in a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller, sources familiar with the negotiations told CBS News Sunday. Gates, 45, was indicted by a federal grand jury in October on eight counts including fraud and money laundering as part of the special counsel’s probe into ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Sources told CBS News’ Paula Reid about the expected guilty plea. MORE FROM CBS NEWS The revelations of Gates’ plea comes after attorneys for Gates requested to withdraw from the case. Reid reports that all of Gates’ attorneys-of-record were seeking to withdraw from the case. A 31-page, 12-count indictment charges Manafort and Gates with conspiracy against the U.S., conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading Foreign Agents Registration Act statements, false statements, and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts. READ THE FULL INDICTMENT The indictment alleges Manafort and Gates hid their work as agents of the Ukrainian government and its political parties and tried to cover up millions of dollars they made from that work. Gates had reached the point in his case at which he must decide whether or not to pursue a plea deal. The fact that three experienced trial attorneys wanted off the case suggested at the time that Gates may be pursuing a plea deal. The attorneys remain under a gag order by the court.

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Opponents of the National Rifle Association protested in White Plains Sunday afternoon – including one woman who narrowly escaped the Las Vegas massacre last year. As WCBS 880’s Ethan Harp reported, the group gathered on steps of the Westchester Republican Committee office. Erin Fuller grew up near Sandy Hook Elementary School where Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 young children and six educators in December 2012, and she and her fiancé were in the concert crowd in Las Vegas last October when she left to use a hotel restroom. “I can still hear it as clear as day,” Fuller said.

(Credit: Ethan Harp/WCBS 880) Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire, killing 58 people and injuring more than 800 others as he fired at a country music festival from his hotel suite on Oct. 1 of last year. “We knew something was really wrong, but I convinced myself that it was a helicopter because it sounded like it was coming from the sky!” Fuller said. Protesters slam the NRA in White Plains on Sunday, Feb. 18, 2018. (Credit: Ethan Harp/WCBS 880) Fuller is holding the NRA accountable for the growing list of attacks, as is state Assemblywoman and Senate candidate Shelley Mayer (D-Yonkers). “We have an NRA-controlled Republican Party in Congress that is refusing to the right thing,” Mayer said.

He blames the shooting last week in which Nikolas Cruz, 19, is accused of opening fire and killing 17 people at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on missed warning signs.

REDLANDS (CBSLA) — A 27-year-old skateboarder died after being struck by a man suspected of driving under the influence in Redlands, authorities said Sunday. Redlands police said Dustin Michael Garrett of Riverside was arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter, felony hit-and-run, and felony driving under the influence following the crash Saturday. Garrett stands accused of traveling at a high rate of speed down Colton Avenue before police say he struck the skateboarder, who was thrown onto the hood of the car, then to the ground. Police said Garrett allegedly continued and struck other vehicles before he fled on foot. He was subsequently arrested and booked with bail set at $250,000. The skateboarder, whose identity was not released, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. Anyone with information about this case was asked to call the Redlands Police Dispatch at (909) 798-7681 ext. 1.
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Members of the New York City Congressional delegation on Sunday urged a rollback of a Trump administration plan that they said would risk the health of first responders who worked during the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks – and others who were made ill by the toxins released that day. Long Island U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-New York) had harsh words for budget director Mick Mulvaney. King said Mulvaney opposed the World Trade Center Health Program as a congressman representing South Carolina, and is now trying to split it apart from the National Institute from Occupational Safety and Health. Under the plan, NIOSH will be separated from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but the World Trade Center Health Program will stay behind with the CDC, lawmakers said. “To have him making this proposal really, really makes me even more suspicious,” King said. King joined his Democratic colleagues, including U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-New York) of New York City, in opposing the plan – which would separate the World Trade Center Health Program from many of the people who run it. “We made a promise to always care for those who were there for us that day – that horrible day – and in the weeks and months that followed,” Maloney said. Maloney called the Mulvaney plan “a new low, even for the Trump administration.” King, Maloney and Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-New York) urged Mulvaney to withdraw the “ill-thought out proposal” to remove the World Trade Center Health Program from the NIOSH.
