How Manafort's inability to convert a PDF file to Word helped prosecutors

        The indictment also suggests that Manafort's lack of
        technology savvy helped prosecutors build a case against
        Manafort and Gates. The pair allegedly submitted a variety of
        fraudulent documents to lenders in order to borrow money
        against properties purchased with overseas funds--funds that
        were never reported to the IRS. One reason prosecutors were
        able to build a paper trail against the pair: Manafort needed
        Gates's help to convert a PDF document to Word format and back
        again.
