Trump tweeted his message to Flynn hours before his first national security adviser was due to be sentenced for lying about his communications with Russian officials.
Good luck today in court to General Michael Flynn. 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!

Trump added it would be “interesting to see” what Flynn “has to say” at the hearing, scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
Special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference to sway the 2016 election for Trump and possible collusion with Trump’s campaign, has recommended that Flynn not serve jail time for the felony conviction because of the “substantial assistance” he has provided with the probes.
Are you kidding us?
How dare you.
What President tweets for a convicted felon?
It’s Conspiracy by the way.
Keep it up.
THIS tweet proves guilt and insanity.
Can I treat you to some of the rule of law?
Make a fool of yourself.

Trump delivers Flynn a back-handed warning before today’s court appearance. “Good luck”
Or is it a veiled pardon offer if he plays ball?

He already talked. He won’t have much to say today except “Thank you Your Honor.”

Is this witness tampering? It feels like poorly concealed witness tampering.

What will be more interesting is what Flynn had to say during his substantial cooperation.
