Trump attorney discussed pardons with Flynn, Manafort lawyers
Mar 29, 2018, 01:20
Van der Zwaan, who pleaded for no jail time, said that he lied about the conversations because he did not want to admit that he recorded Gates, Person A and the Skadden Arps partner.
The revelation comes in a sentencing memorandum filed against Alex van der Zwaan, a London-based lawyer who pleaded guilty in February to lying to Mueller's investigators about his contacts with Gates and the ex-spy.
Gates, a previous biz companion of ex-Trump project chair Paul Manafort, is accepting Mueller after begging guilty to non listed lobbying as well as loan laundering.
Mueller's office did not make a judgment on what van der Zwaan's sentence should be, but pointed out his experience as a longtime lawyer and the fact that he lied to them after Gates and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort were indicted in the Russian Federation probe. Period. As far as I know, no discussions, ' he told the newspaper.
"Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agents assisting the Special Counsel's Office assess that Person A has ties to a Russian intelligence service and had such ties in 2016. He thereafter deliberately and repeatedly lied", as well as "withheld and otherwise destroyed documents requested by the Special Counsel's Office through his counsel relating to his work with Manafort, Gates, and Person A" including a September 12, 2016, email "that the government had obtained through other means". We will not likely get an answer to that question any time soon, but the contacts between Kilimnik and Gates in September and October of 2016 while Gates was still working on the campaign are undeniably curious, at the very least. That article landed Manafort in hot water with prosecutors and the judge presiding over the federal criminal case against him. Instead, Mueller has indicted Gates and Manafort on charges related to their consulting work for former Ukrainian prime minister Viktor Yanukovych. Kelner and a spokesman for Manafort also were not immediately available.
The op-ed was submitted to the Kyiv Post, an English-language Ukrainian media outlet, which declined to publish it. Brian Bonner, the editor, told Bloomberg the op-ed was "highly suspicious" and "blatantly pro-Manafort". Three days after van der Zwaan's guilty plea, Gates flipped his plea, admitted financial fraud and lying to investigators, and began cooperating with Mueller. Manafort was in touch with Kilimnik during the 2016 campaign, offering to provide briefings to Oleg Deripaska, a Kremlin-backed Russian oligarch.
Van der Zwaan is scheduled to be sentenced next Tuesday on one count of making false statements.
