The brother of President Trump’s ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn called on the president to pardon Flynn.

The tweet has since been deleted.

“About time you pardoned General Flynn who has taken the biggest fall for all of you given the illegitimacy of this confessed crime in the wake of all this corruption,” Joseph Flynn said in a tweet on Tuesday.

The tweet was in response to a tweet from Trump, in which the president complained about the unverified dossier detailing his alleged ties to Russia.

Flynn deleted the tweet shortly after it was posted, but confirmed to Newsweek he drafted and sent it.

“I said it, and maybe he’s listening,” Flynn’s younger brother said.

The elder Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador to the United States earlier this month.
