President Donald Trump is planning to pardon his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to reports.

Trump reportedly informed confidants of his plan to pardon Flynn - but made it clear he could still change his mind, sources told Axios on Tuesday. 

Flynn ran into problems during the presidential transition in 2016.

The retired lieutenant general was jailed over allegations that he lied to the FBI about his Russian contacts during the 2016 general election.

However, Flynn’s rockstar attorney, Sidney Powell, presented bombshell evidence in court showing that James Comey's FBI "ambushed" Trump's former advisor and later "celebrated" stitching him up.

Powell filed sealed documents in court that proved Flynn was framed by anti-Trump agents and he was promptly released.

Axios first reported the news Tuesday, citing two sources with direct knowledge.

Sources with "knowledge of the president’s thinking" also told Fox News he plans to pardon Flynn.

Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017 and has become a symbol for conservatives of how Justice Department officials abused their power in the Russia investigation.

Despite two guilty pleas from Flynn, the prosecution came under scrutiny after the release of FBI documents that indicated a plot to get Flynn to lie. 

"What is our goal?" read one of the FBI's notes. 

"Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?"

Following those revelations, Trump's Justice Department moved to drop its case against him but has since encountered hurdles in court.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected in August Flynn's plea to force a federal judge to drop his criminal case.

Flynn's attorney, Sidney Powell, reportedly said she requested that Trump not issue a pardon, but the president publicly has been very sympathetic to Flynn's cause. 

"What happened to General Michael Flynn, a war hero, should never be allowed to happen to a citizen of the United States again!" Trump tweeted in April.
