Washington (CNN) - Special counsel Robert Mueller's office appears ready to send George Papadopoulos to his sentencing and may be done using his help in the Russia probe, according to a court filing Wednesday.
A filing by prosecutors from the special counsel's office in DC District Court asks the judge overseeing Papadopoulos' guilty plea to begin preparing for his sentencing.
Previous delays from prosecutors related to Papadopoulos' sentencing and in Michael Flynn's and Rick Gates's cases largely have been read as signals that Mueller's probe into possible Russian coordination with the Trump campaign continued.
Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to a charge of making false statements to the FBI, about his contact with three people who pressed him to help set up a meeting between Trump and Russian government officials during the campaign.
Updates due from the Special Counsel's Office on Flynn's and Gates' status and sentencing have also been delayed several times since their guilty pleas.
Historian David Christian is the creator of Big History, a free online course that traces what we know about the past 13.7 billion years of existence, going from the Big Bang and the origin of life to the complex societies we live in today.
If you haven't taken the course, Gates says this book is an excellent way to understand its concepts.
In the story, Lincoln's contemplation of the loss of his son — one year after the start of the Civil War — gives him a new understanding of the grief experienced by families losing children in battle.
In this book, a parting message that Rosling described as his "last battle in my life-long mission to fight devastating ignorance," you can see many of the same messages that Gates spends much of his time trying to get people to understand.
