Another Former Trump Aide Seeks Release From Prison

The New York Post reports:

President Trump’s former deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates has asked to serve his remaining 45-day “intermittent” prison term at home amid fears of contracting COVID-19, according to a report.

In a court filing Sunday, Gates urged a modification to his probation condition because he fears he could carry the coronavirus home and also infect his wife, who is under cancer treatment, Reuters reported.

“The gravity of the virus and its potential impact on Mrs. Gates are substantial,” Gates’ lawyer Thomas Green said in the filing. Prosecutors have reviewed the request and do not oppose it, the filing shows.
