Here we go....
So the first conviction of the Special Councils Investigation has arrived.
It seems lying to investigators will land one in the klink. be.html

Dutch lawyer Alex van der Zwaan, the son-in-law of Russian oligarch German Kahn, was sentenced Tuesday to 30 days in prison and must pay a $20,000 fine for lying to federal investigators about his contacts with senior Trump campaign official Rick Gates as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe.

So what was this ne'er-do-well fault?

Van der Zwaan was charged by Mueller’s team with making false statements to investigators in an interview about his time working for a law firm hired by the Ukraine Ministry of Justice in 2012, when he helped produce a report on the trail of Ukrainian politician Yulia Tymoshenko.

Seems this malcontent couldn't identify why a specific email was not produced for the Special Council, and he couldn't remember a conversation.

The court document notes that van der Zwaan 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” and that his last communication with Gates was in August 2016. It also says he claimed that his last communication with an unidentified “Person A” was in 2014.

One wonders if the questions from the ig report and huber prosecution will be dealt with in the same fashion?
If so, from what we already know, dc better clear out some cell space because quite a few have "misplaced' emails and forgotten conversations.
You know, justice being equal and all.
