Mmmm yes. This WILL prove to be an interesting 2018.

On Friday it was Michael Flynn's turn "in the barrel", to borrow a line from Trump confidant Roger Stone. The former national security adviser pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about December 2016 conversations he had with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak and pledged to "fully co-operate" with Mr Mueller's ongoing investigations.

Mr Flynn has admitted he misled the FBI about his discussions regarding new sanctions imposed on Russia by the Obama administration following evidence of alleged meddling in the 2016 election. (BBC)

And so it begins very seriously. Flynn has already testified that he was instructed, not willfully going out on his own, to contact Russia before Dickhead took office. And with those instructions come a fascinating host of possibilities. There's a good chance that at least one tRump will find themselves on the dock for lying. We just have to hope the biggest bullshitter will get caught up in the net and go down with his brand.

Now that's a wish for 2018.
