President Donald Trump should pardon former national security adviser Michael Flynn, Flynn's brother said Tuesday.

Michael Flynn pleaded guilty on December 1 to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, and failing to disclose conversations he had with former Russian ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak, during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Flynn and his son are now under investigation in Mueller's probe into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russian election meddling.

Trump's attorneys are prepared to denounce Flynn, who the president has up to now defended and spoken of favorably, as a liar who has already admitted to deceiving Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, should Flynn give incriminating testimony against Trump or any of his close aides, The Washington Post reported last night.

Trump White House Saw Record Number of First-Year Staff Departures
According to a Wall Street Journal story, Trump first fired his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn last February, less than a month after he took office.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, Joseph Flynn said that his brother, Trump's disgraced former national security adviser, had "taken the biggest fall" and deserved to be pardoned.

White House special counsel Ty Cobb did not comment to CNBC. I ask for quick action on this. He is now believed to be cooperating with federal investigators as they continue to investigate potential Trump-Russia collusion. A pardon would strip Flynn of his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent, meaning he could be forced to testify against Trump, Jared Kushner or others who are under Mueller's lens.

Flynn, a major Trump supporter during the campaign, left the administration in disgrace shortly after assuming his senior post amid disclosures that he lied to officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, about his contacts with Russia's USA envoy Sergey Kislyak.
