Paul Manafort's one-time protege Rick Gates has described for jurors how millions of dollars flowed from entities controlled by Ukrainian businessmen into Manafort's bank accounts in Cyprus.

 Gates returned to the witness stand Tuesday as the government's star witness in Manafort's financial fraud trial in Alexandria, Virginia.

Gates said Manafort was paid for Ukrainian political consulting work, but that the money was classified as loans instead of income. He told jurors Manafort classified the money that way to decrease his taxable income. Gates says he didn't report the money as income to Manafort's bookkeeper or accountants.

Gates looked directly at prosecutor Greg Andres as he fielded questions. Manafort sometimes looked at Gates but also appeared to stare intently at documents displayed for the jury and on a screen in front of him.
