Mueller: Former Trump campaign official Rick Gates 'continues to cooperate' in several investigation

Source: CNBC

Former Trump campaign official Rick Gates "continues to cooperate with respect to several ongoing investigations," special counsel Robert Mueller said in a court filing Friday.

The joint report from Mueller and Gates' attorney, which asks a federal judge for 60 more days before providing the next update on Gates' status, comes amid increasing speculation that the special counsel's Russia probe is coming to an end.

The filing also arrives two days after Gates' longtime business partner and former Trump campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, received his final prison sentence on charges lodged by Mueller in federal court.

Gates, alongside Manafort, had initially been charged by Mueller's prosecutors with money laundering, misleading investigators and other crimes.

3. So he's asking for 60 days more, that belies the republican premise that Mueller is wrapping up...

...and his report will be ready "within days".

Unless the wily, clever Mueller is playing with them?

5. Remember that John Gotti was "the teflon don" and he kept getting away from justice until Bob ....

.... took over the case and he gave a mob hit man called Sammy "the bull" Gravano a pass
on something like 20 to 100 murders .... 5 years & out in 2.5 .... if he would testify against
Got and Gotti died in prison after that.

Mueller, Schiff, and all of us are up against the largest and most dangerous organized crime
syndicate in the history of the world.

8. I feel for Mueller: he knows the inside information about this scum selling out our country...

then watches as the judges let them off with a couple years in prison.
