Unsealed emails reveal tiff over ex-Trump aide Gates

WASHINGTON (AP) — Newly unsealed emails are shedding more light on behind-the-scenes discussions that led lawyers for former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates to withdraw from his case.

The emails were made public by a judge Tuesday after The Associated Press and other news organizations sued for their release.

In one message, Shanlon Wu, a former lawyer for Gates, told two attorneys on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team that they had been meeting behind his back with a different lawyer. Wu complained that the prosecutors had refused to disclose to him the substance of the meetings or discuss with him the terms of the plea offer.

The prosecutors responded the next day by saying they were simply dealing with Gates’s chosen lawyer, Thomas Green, and they had no interest in being intermediaries.
