    In a filing with the U.S. District Court in Washington, U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller cited Gates’ continued cooperation with multiple probes and asked permission to update the judge on the case again by May 14.

    “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,” Mueller’s team said in the court filing.

    Doesn't look like it's wrapping up soon after all.

    We know that Gates has personal knowledge of several matters under investigation. The inaugural committee. Gates continued and deputy campaign chair after Manafort was fired; but Manafort continued activities after he was fired. The Kiliminick Manafort meeting. The latter is interesting because Gates plead guilty and Manafort received a 7 and a half year sentence already on other matters.
