President Donald Trump early Tuesday both tweeted his support for his former national security adviser Michael Flynn in the face of his sentencing later in the day, condemning special counsel Robert Mueller's probe and the loss of nearly 20,000 emails between FBI agents and lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

In his Flynn tweet, the president wished Flynn "good luck today in court. Will be interesting to see what he has to say, despite tremendous pressure being put on him, about Russian Collusion in our great and, obviously, highly successful political campaign. There was no Collusion!"

Flynn's sentencing hearing is to be held in Washington D.C., at which time a judge will determine how much leniency he should get for his cooperation with federal authorities. He has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about interactions with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during Trump's transition period.

Mueller has recommended that Flynn not be sentenced to prison citing his "substantial" cooperation with investigations.

In the president's other tweet, posted shortly before his message on Flynn, Trump complained that the "biggest outrage" in Mueller's "witch hunt" is  "the fact that 19,000 demanded text messages between Peter Strzok and his FBI lover, Lisa Page, were purposely and illegally deleted. Would have explained whole hoax, which is now under protest!"

His comments came on the heels of an early morning Fox News "Fox and Friends" discussion on the Mueller investigation, including commentary on statements made by former FBI Director James Comey blaming Trump, Republicans and Fox News for attacks on the FBI.
