Alex van der Zwaan, Iron Troll Guide To TrumpGate

Posted By: ZiLe Ohai - September 10, 2018

Alex van der Zwaan pleaded guilty in February, 2018 for lying to the FBI and Mueller's team. He was given a sentence of 30 days in prison and then deported.

Van der Zwaan was in contact with Manafort and his crew when he was part of a team of lawyers who wrote a report in 2012 for Ukrainian president, Viktor Yanukovych, defending the prosecution and imprisonment of his political rival.

In 2016, van der Zwaan was again in communication with Rick Gates and Konstantin Kilimnik. There were emails, encrypted messages and recorded conversations that van der Zwaan didn't mention to the FBI and Mueller's team.

During the court proceedings, van der Zwaan appeared as if the whole thing was no big deal. But according to special counsel manager, Andrew Weissmann, van der Zwaan had a "clear lack of morality" and only told the truth because he was "caught red handed" lying to investigators. Van der Zwaan was sentenced to 30 days in federal prison, 2 months supervised release and a fine of $20,000. After release from prison, van der Zwaan was deported to the Netherlands. In 2017, van der Zwaan married Eva Khan, daughter of Russian oligarch, German Khan, who is one of the owners of Alfa Bank. It's believed the relationship to the oligarch and Manafort is what prompted Mueller's investigation into van der Zwaan.

Alfa Bank was mentioned in the Steele dossier because the three oligarch owners, including German Khan, were close to Putin.
