Van der Zwaan was fined $20,000 and sentenced to two months of supervised release.
Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman, has pleaded not guilty to two sets of federal charges, and prosecutors revealed they could investigate allegations that he colluded with Russians to interfere with the 2016 presidential election. Van der Zwaan later returned to the special counsel's office on December 1 to "correct the record", his lawyers wrote.
"This was more than a mistake".
Berman Jackson concluded, however, that "the expressions of remorse here by the defendant. have been somewhat muted to say the least".

Trump has also denied any collusion between himself and the Kremlin and has called Mueller's investigation a "witch hunt".
Manafort's lawyers have argued that Mueller overstepped the bounds of his mandate by charging him with crimes unrelated to Russian collusion, and that Mueller's mandate itself is too broad.
Gates pleaded guilty on February 23 to conspiring to defraud the United States and lying to Mueller's office, and is now cooperating with the probe.
