Why does that matter? Recall that a big part of Manafort's defense is blaming Gates for problems with Manafort's finances. During cross-x of other witnesses, Manafort's lawyers have tried to elicit info about Gates' unreliability (not to mention his admitted theft from Manafort)
The jury then heard a stipulation (agreement between the parties) that when Manafort's company produced docs per a subpoena, it included a statement (from Manafort's lawyer, per an earlier proceeding,but the jury didn't hear that) saying Gates had no control over the its accounts
We saw and heard about the most direct evidence to date to support allegations that Manafort did, in fact, control the overseas accounts. Magionos testified about bank records that listed Manafort, and in some cases Gates, as the beneficial owner of the various accounts
