Former Trump campaign adviser Richard Gates is still cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the president’s 2016 campaign and Russia, according to a Wednesday court filing that asks for Gates’s sentencing to be delayed.


The joint filing by Mueller’s office and Gates’s lawyer suggests that Gates is aiding in the investigation on issues beyond just Manafort, according to Reuters.

It was not clear based on the filing which probes Gates is helping with.

Prosecutors and Gates’ lawyer also said in the filing that he was not ready for sentencing and asked a status-report to be postponed until mid-January.
