Robert Mueller dropped another indictment in his Russia probe.
A London lawyer pled guilty to making false statements.
And it revealed one big thing about the collusion investigation.
Mueller charged 33 year-old London lawyer Alex Van Der Zwaan for making false statements to FBI agents last November about his contacts with former Paul Manafort deputy Rick Gates.
“Alex Van Der Zwaan is charged with making “materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements and representations” to the special counsel’s office and FBI agents on November 3, 2017, according to the indictment.
According to the indictment, Van Der Zwaan said his last communication with Gates was in mid-August 2016 — “an innocuous text message” — and his last communication with “Person A” was in 2014 (when he and Person A discussed Person A’s family).
Van Der Zwaan also said he did not know why an email between him and Person A in September 2016 was not produced to the special counsel’s office, according to the indictment.
However, he “then and there well knew and believed” that in or about September, he spoke with both Gates and Person A regarding the report on Yulia Tymoshenko, a former Ukrainian prime minister and opponent of former Ukrainian Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych, and surreptitiously recorded the calls.
He also deleted and “otherwise did not produce” emails sought by the Special Counsel’s Office and Law Firm A, including the September email between him and Person A in September 2016.”
The charges are related to Manafort and Gates’ work as foreign lobbyists from 2006 to 2014.
Mueller’s indictment shows how far afield his investigation has strayed from Russian collusion.
He continually indicts minor figures for process crimes unrelated to collusion to buy himself time to complete his witch hunt against Trump.
The truth is the latest charges prove Mueller has nothing on Trump or his campaign.
If he did, that is where he would be focusing his intentions to press charges.
