A London-based lawyer who admitted to lying to special counsel Robert Mueller's team in November 2017 was ordered Tuesday to serve 30 days in prison, the first sentence imposed since Mueller was appointed nearly a year ago.

Alex van der Zwaan, 33, had pleaded guilty in February to making false statements when he was interviewed last fall about his phone calls and e-mails with a former Trump campaign aide, Richard Gates. The judge also fined the Belgian-born lawyer $20,000 and imposed two months of supervised release. Judge Amy Berman Jackson said van der Zwaan's false statements were not an incidental mistake but a knowing lie during an investigation of international importance. She said she took into account that he is an attorney and should have known better.

And as usual they go easy on white collar criminals with money. You and me lie to the FBI and it's a lot worse.

PS.

...and Crusher (or other mods) -- why aren't you closing this thread as well? :)

How is it any different from my thread ...besides longer C/P, of course? :D

...and what did you want me to say to make you happy and satisfied?

Something like:"Is Trump next?" ...would satisfy your desire to see my own comment ...and make it worth while for debating?


But back to this thread .... Gonna keep it open or let's lock it up as well? :D
