The indictment, unsealed in federal court in Washington on February 16, accuses Alex Van Der Zwaan with lying to investigators about work he performed for Skadden, Arps, Slate Meagher & Flom in 2012.
The filing is further evidence that Mueller's investigators have ratcheted the pressure on Gates as he negotiates a plea deal and that they continue to look into the work of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Gates while they worked for Russian-allied clients and the Trump campaign.
The prosecutors alleged that Van der Zwaan lied when he said he did not know why a September 2016 email between him and an unnamed person was not turned over to Mueller's office, when he actually had deleted it.
The indictment against Van Der Zwaan, which name-drops Gates, may suggest that the reports are correct and the former Trump aide is cooperating with the special counsel.
The firm is not identified in the filing, but appears to be Skadden, Arps, Slate Meagher & Flom, a well-known Washington firm.

Van Der Zwaan reportedly was one of the authors of Kiev's case against Tymoshenko, who was found guilty - but later released from prison after Yanukovych's fall from power.
Ukraine's investigators have alleged that Yanukovych's government evaded Ukrainian publiccontracting rules by only paying Skadden $12,000 for the report-just below the threshold that would require a public bidding process-and then paying the firm $1.1 million a year later, with Skadden apparently having done no more work for Ukraine. According toreporting by the New York Times, Manafort had arranged for Skadden to write the report in an effort to counter allegations that Yanukovych's government prosecuted Tymoshenko for political reasons.
Skadden said in a statement that it fired him a year ago and that it has been cooperating with authorities.
The communication, prosecutors allege, took place when Gates was still a member of the Trump campaign team. But no deal has materialized as of Tuesday morning. Reuters reported at the time that the case was "regarded widely in the West as politically orchestrated".
Manafort, a longtime associate of Gates, was indicted himself on similar charges past year. But the indictment against a largely unknown figure who is not known to be connected to the president shows the wide-ranging nature of the ongoing investigation, which is being led by Robert Mueller, the special counsel and former head of the FBI. Gates pleaded not guilty on October 30 alongside Manafort. The information was filed ahead of a plea hearing scheduled for later Tuesday.
