WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Friday asked a court to delay sentencing for U.S. President Donald Trump’s former deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates, given his continued cooperation into multiple probes.

“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 a court filing.
