President Donald Trump, blasting the special counsel's investigation as "illegal" and "conflicted", said there should be no final report by Robert Mueller. Since then, Mueller's team has the judge to delay his sentencing five times while he helped the investigation.

The report asks a federal judge for 60 more days before providing the next update on the status of President Trump's former campaign chairman.

While Mueller and his Justice Department supervisors aren't saying anything official about the conclusion of the special counsel's work, Congress is getting ready for the big moment. Reason being, he keeps cooperating with "several ongoing investigations".

The filing suggests that Gates might still helpful beyond Manafort, and that there are investigators who still want Gates' cooperation.

"The parties do not believe it is appropriate to commence with the sentencing process at this time", prosecutors and defense counsel wrote in the filing.
