Mueller focus shifts to Rick Gates

Mueller focus shifts to Rick Gates The focus on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is about to shift to Rick Gates. Gates, Paul Manafort's ex-business partner and President Trump's former deputy campaign chair, has been quietly cooperating with federal prosecutors for over a year on Mueller's investigation into Russian interference. He's also a cooperating witness to other undisclosed federal probes. A certain air of mystery has long surrounded exa ctly what Gates is telling his interlocutors, with periodic court filings offering up only nebulous details about his interactions with federal prosecutors.

Bharara: 'Doesn't seem' Mueller's investigation 'ending any time soon' Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said Sunday that it doesn't appear that special counsel Robert Mueller is preparing to conclude his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. "I'm an outsider now, and I don't still run the Southern District of New York, and I'm not aware of what's going on with various investigations that sometimes intersect with the special counsel's investigation," Bharara said on CBS's "Face the Nation."

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.

The week that could reveal Mueller’s end-game.
"A number of the threads are finally starting to merge together," said Matthew Miller, a former Obama Justice Department spokesman. In one way, the timing for this week’s Mueller moves is in one way happenstance — coinciding schedules from a series of individual criminal cases that represent the public face of the special counsel’s often secretive work. But their confluence also represents the fact that numerous high-profile storylines of the Mueller probe are finally coming to their conclusion.
