So here’s the essence of what went wrong for Manafort and Gates, according to Mueller’s investigation: Manafort allegedly wanted to falsify his company’s income, but he couldn’t figure out how to edit the PDF. He therefore had Gates turn it into a Microsoft Word document for him, which led the two to bounce the documents back-and-forth over email. Manafort’s inability to complete a basic task on his own seems to have effectively “created an incriminating paper.
Luckily, Gates knew a way to convert the PDF to another file type so Paul could edit it. If you’re curious and want to convert a PDF to a Word doc, you can use Adobe Acrobat. Here’s how:
1. Open a file in Acrobat.
2. Click on the Export PDF tool in the right pane.
3. Choose Microsoft Word as your export format, and then choose Word Document.
4. Click Export. If your PDF contains scanned text, Acrobat will run text recognition automatically.
5. Name the Word file and save it in a desired location.trail.”……………………………………..
