Mueller, in U.S. court filing, says multiple probes continue

Rick Gates, a key cooperator in the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation, is not ready to be sentenced because he's continuing to help with "several ongoing investigations".

"This was an illegal & conflicted investigation in search of a crime", Trump cried, attacking Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Gates is one of several Trump advisers who have been charged or pleaded guilty to crimes stemming from the federal investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election and possible collusion with Trump's campaign.

Gates pleaded guilty a year ago to conspiracy and false statement charges related to Ukrainian lobbying and political consulting he carried out with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Manafort, who pleaded guilty last year to conspiring to defraud the U.S. 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.

Gates pleaded guilty in February 2018 to conspiracy against the United States and lying to investigators.

That comes nearly exactly 24 hours after the U.S. House of Representatives in an incredibly rare unanimous act of bipartisanship, voted 420-0 to demand the Dept. of Justice publicly release the full Mueller report, with the exception of any classified information.

He said allegations of collusion between his campaign and Moscow were "nothing more than an excuse by the Democrats for losing an Election that they thought they were going to win".
