Mueller Wants More Time With Cooperating Witness Gates: Filing
Jan 19, 2019, 01:11
In a request similar to one made to the judge in November, they cited Gates' cooperation with "several ongoing investigations" in asking for another 60 days before they update the judge again about the case and whether it was time to move to sentencing.
But during two face-to-face meetings in Kyiv, several phone calls, and many more text messages in 2017 and 2018, Kilimnik insisted to RFE/RL that he did not work for the GRU and said he did not fear Mueller's probe.
On January 15, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office suggested in a court filing that the two men spoke a lot, before and long after Manafort was criminally charged, and specifically about an initiative to bring peace to Ukraine that was likely very favorable to the Kremlin. It's unclear if the delay is an indication of the timeline of Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference or a reflection of the status of the other investigations.
Although heavy redacted, the documents state that Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, claimed he was trying to get people appointed in the new presidential administration. Some signs have indicated he is wrapping sometime soon, including the planned departure in the coming weeks of Deputy Attorney Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the probe.
Kilimnik's plan - which he claimed at the time Manafort was not involved with - recommended bringing disgraced former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych back from exile in Russian Federation to the country that overthrew him in a deadly revolution to be the head of the war-torn eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk.
Trump pledges to work with Democrats but demands wall
Democrats also approved, 241-190, a separate measure funding the Agriculture, Interior and other departments through September 30. One measure would open most of the shuttered government departments at funding levels already agreed to by all sides.
As part of the document meant to defend Manafort against accusations that he lied to prosecutors, his defense counsel failed to adequately redact sections of their filing, inadvertently revealing that Manafort stands accused of sharing internal Trump campaign polling data with Kilimnik while he was working for the campaign in the spring of 2016.
Both initially pleaded not guilty, but Gates succumbed to the mounting legal and financial pressure in February 2018 and struck a plea deal with prosecutors. Russians backed by a powerful oligarch also at that time allegedly ran a propaganda campaign on American social media sites to influence voters in a way that would help Trump. During court testimony a year ago, Gates also admitted to "possibly" stealing money from the committee.
Earlier this week, Trump's nominee for attorney general asserted independence from the White House, saying he believed that Russian Federation had tried to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, that the special counsel investigation shadowing Trump is not a witch hunt and that his predecessor was right to recuse himself from the probe. One heavily redacted section refers to a meeting Manafort had before leaving the Trump campaign on August 19, 2016. He is also reportedly involved in a federal investigation of Trump's inaugural committee, where Gates served in a senior role.
Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said that early goal was a heavy blow: "When we start off like that we shoot ourselves in the foot". That took the Denmark worldwide to four Premier League goals for the campaign, while he has also set up a further seven.

Democrats said the entire package is based on legislation that has already been passed by either the Senate or Senate committees. That bill would fund Homeland Security through February 8 at current levels, which does not include money for a border wall .
Barr even referred to Mueller in friendly fashion, having worked with him back in the 1990s when Barr was attorney general. Barr as a private citizen penned a June memo that went after the Mueller probe.
The White House moved to pre-empt the Democrats, telling reporters Monday that tax refunds would be paid despite the shutdown. She noted that the House passed legislation to reopen government on the first day of the new Congress.
