Rudy believes in some statements that the sentencing of George Papadopoulos means an end to the Mueller investigation.

The reality might be that it only signals the end of one phase since there are so many possible subjects/targets further up the indictment ladder.

In the sequence of events, and if one uses the Steele Dossier as a guide, there’s so much more to investigate, especially as now the Cohen raid has opened up some further lines of inquiry.

A court filing Wednesday from special counsel Robert Mueller’s office may be a signal that his investigation into Russian efforts to coordinate with the Trump campaign is nearing a conclusion.

The filing asks a federal judge to start the process of preparing a pre-sentencing report for former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty last year to lying to investigators in the Trump-Russia probe.

[…]

The move indicates that a sentencing for Papadopoulos could come this summer — without him testifying at the trials of others who may have been involved in alleged collusion with the Kremlin on its attempts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. No one faces such charges at the moment.

It’s also possible that the filing is a sign that the investigation has progressed to the point that prosecutors have concluded Papadopoulos’s testimony would not be useful in any future cases.
