Rick Gates is still fully cooperating with multiple federal probes, Gates’ lawyers and special counsel Robert Mueller said in a joint status report filed Tuesday.

“Defendant 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,” the parties wrote.

Whatever useful information Gates is providing will ultimately factor into the sentence that federal prosecutors recommend for the former Trump campaign adviser.

Gates’ attorneys and Mueller asked to provide the next update on their conversations to the court by March 15.
