"This was an illegal & conflicted investigation in search of a crime", Trump cried, attacking Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

The U.S. Special Counsel's Office on Friday asked a court to delay sentencing for U.S. President Donald Trump's former deputy campaign chairman, Rick Gates, amid "ongoing investigations" stemming from the Russian Federation investigation. But it's unclear if Friday's delay is an indication that Mueller may submit his confidential report soon or if it's related to the status of the other investigations.

In a series of tweets, the president said newly disclosed congressional testimony of fired FBI agent Peter Strzok "is devastating" for its revelations of anti-Trump sentiment among FBI employees who handled the Hillary Clinton email server probe, and for exposing bias in launching the Russian Federation investigation that was assigned to Mr. Mueller. If Gates wasn't needed anymore, the parties likely would have asked to set a sentencing date.

In a plea deal a year ago, Gates pleaded guilty to conspiracy and to making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the special counsel's office.

Gates, a former associate of the doubly sentenced Paul Manafort, has was an instrumental witness during Manafort's Eastern District of Virginia trial.

After pleading guilty to tax fraud and failing to register as a foreign agent, US District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled that Manafort also lied "intentionally" to the FBI, Mueller and the grand jury "concerning matters that were material to the investigation: his interactions and communications" with suspected Russian intelligence agent Konstantin Kilimnik, Bertrand noted.

Prosecutors have not revealed exactly what piqued their interest in the meeting, though court papers show it involved a discussion of a possible Russia-Ukraine peace plan. Whether it's Mueller or prosecutors in the Southern District of NY, or perhaps elsewhere, is not entirely clear. Investigators are looking into whether foreigners illegally contributed to the committee, which raised $107 million for Trump's inaugural events, and how that money was spent.
