House Speaker Paul Ryan pledged that Congress will not interfere with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible coordination between President Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign and Russian Federation - a probe that has intensified in the last week as Trump campaign officials, including former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, have been indicted.

It was reported that Mr Flynn could face less severe charges if he cooperates with Mr Mueller's team and that could also benefit his son.

If Mueller does charge Flynn it would be a milestone because it would mark the first time that a current or former Trump administration official would be formally charged with committing a crime. According to an exclusive report by NBC News Sunday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has enough evidence to bring charges against both men. The younger Flynn's lawyer, Barry Coburn, declined to comment.

Sources also reportedly told NBC News that Flynn's son, Michael G. Flynn, might also be indicted either separately or along with his father. Illinois Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi wrote in a tweet published shortly after the news broke Sunday.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his longtime business associate Rick Gates were indicted early last week on 12 counts that include, conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading FARA statements, false statements, and failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts. The inquiries are said to relate to his lobbying work and will investigate whether he laundered money or lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his work.

Flynn worked on the campaign and his son worked closely with him and briefly worked on the Trump campaign's transition.

Another Trump campaign aide, George Papadopoulos, pleaded guilty to lying to FBI investigators.

In February, Flynn resigned from the administration after lying to Vice President Mike Pence about his communications with Russian government officials.
