The Trump Wrecking Ball is the phenomenon where people close to Trump wind up losing their jobs, disgraced, and sometimes in jail or under criminal indictment. A recent example was Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, who resigned under a cloud of scandal and might be facing criminal charges.

But even people who aren't directly connected to Trump are getting busted because of Trump! The Justice Dept. is wrapping up some of Michael Flynn's buddies:

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Two men involved in a Turkish lobbying campaign led by former National Security adviser Michael Flynn have been charged with illegally lobbying in a case related to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

The case unsealed Monday against Flynn's former business partner, Bijan Kian, and Turkish businessman, Ekim Alptekin, accuses the two men of conspiring to "covertly and unlawfully" influence U.S. politicians on behalf of Turkey.
