Former Trump campaign aide Gates still cooperating on 'several' ongoing probes, Mueller says© Camille Fine Former Trump campaign aide Gates still cooperating on 'several' ongoing probes, Mueller says Former Trump campaign aide Richard Gates is still cooperating with federal prosecutors on "several ongoing investigations," special counsel Robert Mueller said in a joint filing with Gates's attorneys Friday.

Lawyers on both sides are asking a federal judge to further postpone the sentencing date due to his ongoing cooperation in several unnamed probes, adding further mystery to the information that Gates is providing to federal investigators.

Gates, Paul Manafort's ex-business partner and President Trump's former deputy campaign chairman, has been cooperating in Mueller's investigation for more than a year. However, it remains unclear what other investigations he may be assisting in.

Trump Pushes Team to Stick Up for ‘Brave’ Paul Manafort

Trump Pushes Team to Stick Up for ‘Brave’ Paul Manafort Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, is set to head back to court this week to be sentenced by Judge Amy Berman Jackson for conspiring against the U.S. and a conspiracy to obstruct justice connected to his covert lobbying for foreign powers. He could face up to 10 years in prison for those crimes, on top of the 47 months he was given last week for fraud.

WASHINGTON — A former top adviser to Donald J. Trump ’s presidential campaign has agreed to cooperate with the special counsel inquiry into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election after pleading guilty on Friday to financial fraud and lying to investigators.

Gates was indicted alongside Manafort in October 2017 on charges stemming from their lobbying work for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine.

He pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge and to making false statements to the FBI and the special counsel's office in February 2018 as part of a deal to cooperate in Mueller's investigation.

Mueller's prosecutors have repeatedly requested delays in Gates' sentencing, signaling he is still cooperating with federal prosecutors. Their last status report was filed in mid-January.

"To date, the status of this matter has not changed substantially since the January report, as defendant Gates continues to cooperate with respect to several ongoing investigations, and accordingly the parties do not believe it is appropriate to commence the sentencing process at this time," Friday's joint filing, which was due by midnight, states.

The parties asked to submit their next status report on or before May 14.

Trump's attorney slams Congress' ongoing Russia probes.
"Let's get on with the people's business," Sekulow told "CBS This Morning" on Monday that while the special counsel's probe has ended, ongoing congressional investigations are a "waste of money" and slammed their inquiries as "political." "Let's get on with the people's business," Sekulow said, highlighting the need for unresolved legislative issues like immigration reform to take precedence over the Russia investigation.
