7 Year Old Abusive to Sibling

My daughter has two boys, 6 & 7 and I am concerned about both of the children.
The 7 year old bullies and hits his brother, and the 6 year old accepts the abuse and does not fight back; he even makes excuses for his brother’s behavior.
The 6 year old will ask his brother‘s permission to do something even after his parents have already told him it was OK. If his brother says no, the 6 year old will not do it.
The boys mainly play with each other outside of school. In school, the 7 year old does not show his aggressive personality to other children and the 6 year old does not seem overly timid with his classmates.
The 7 year old gets very angry when he is reprimanded and does not admit to being wrong; it is always someone else’s fault. When angry, he often hits or lashes out.
I feel the children’s behavior is a sign of deeper issues and I want the parents to work to resolve these issues. My daughter thinks their behavior is normal sibling behavior. What can I do as a grandparent to help these children?
