Lawyer linked to Trump campaign sentenced in Russian Federation meddling probe

We can not guarantee that it is suitable for the visually or hearing impaired.

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".

Van der Zwaan had previously grown close to Manafort, Gates and the person, Konstantin Kilimnik, during his work on a 2012 report commissioned by the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice. Mueller has described Person A as having "ties to the Russian intelligence service".

Special counsel Robert Mueller has secured the first sentence in his probe into Russian election meddling, but the sentence has nothing to do with the 2016 election or Russian interference.

However, van der Zwaan's sentence is not connected to the Russian interference, it's only related to him lying about a relationship with Manafort It is not believed that van der Zwaan had any connection to Russia.

Since his return in December, Schwartz said, van der Zwaan has been walled up in a residential hotel in Washington and unable to return to London, where his wife is undergoing a hard first pregnancy.

That's why van der Zwann turned over evidence in December 2017, Schwartz said, and didn't toss it into the river near his onetime office in London.

According to prosecutors, van der Zwaan was presented with emails that he had withheld from the special counsel during the initial interview.

In 2016, after Manafort became chairman of Trump's election campaign and took Rick Gates as his deputy, van der Zwaan and Gates both had communications with a person they knew as a former official of Russia's GRU intelligence agency, prosecutors said. 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. Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos also have pleaded guilty. "We're not talking about a traffic ticket", she said.

Jackson urged him not to despair. "This is something he did", she said.
