Robert Mueller asks judge to delay Rick Gates' sentencing

Robert Mueller Asks Judge to Postpone Rick Gates' Sentencing

The U.S. Special Counsel's Office on Friday asked a court to delay sentencing for U.S. President Donald Trump's former deputy campaign chairman, Rick Gates, amid "ongoing investigations" stemming from the Russian Federation investigation. Since then, Mueller's team has the judge to delay his sentencing five times while he helped the investigation.

"The signs I see are all pointing towards an investigation that is wrapping up", said Patrick Cotter, a former federal prosecutor who has worked with Weissmann on organized crime cases.

But the investigation appears to have gotten even more attention after Special Prosecutor Mueller pushed back the sentencing of key witness, Rick Gates by two months.

"Defendant Gates continues to cooperate with respect to several ongoing investigations".

Vidal, playing behind strike duo Messi and Suarez, was a disruptive, combative presence, just as was asked of him by Valverde . During the week Messi scored twice and provided two assists as Lyon were routed 5-1 at Camp Nou in the Champions League .

The request marks the third time that two sides have asked the court to delay Gates' sentencing, citing his ongoing cooperation in the Russian Federation probe. If Gates wasn't needed anymore, the parties likely would have asked to set a sentencing date.

Manafort, who pleaded guilty last year to conspiring to defraud the United States in a cooperation deal with the special counsel, was sentenced this week to six years and one month on the slammer - a week after he received a 47-month in a separate case. That report could be completed even if investigations continue elsewhere, including in the Southern District of NY.

Gates was the longtime business partner of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who faces more than seven years in prison for financial and conspiracy crimes after sentencing this week in a separate case in federal court in Washington. But he is also helping federal authorities in NY who are looking into President Trump's inaugural committee as well as lobbying on behalf of foreign interests by prominent Washington insiders. As Donald Trump's deputy campaign chairman and a top inauguration official, Gates had firsthand insight into several of the president's senior aides and activities.
