The Senate Intelligence Committee has requested documents and testimony from Michael Flynn Jr., son of Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, as part of its investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election.

The committee is interested in Flynn's work with his father in Flynn Intel Group, the consulting firm Flynn Sr. founded after leaving government service, according to NBC News.

Flynn Jr. declined to be interviewed by the committee, according to ABC News.

Flynn Sr., a main subject in the congressional and federal probes into Russian interference, was forced to resign from the Trump administration after 24 days over misleading Vice President Mike Pence about contacts Flynn had with Russian officials, the ABC News report said.

The senior Flynn invoked the Fifth Amendment right to refuse to testify to the committee in May, ABC News reported.

The son of Flynn was removed from Trump's transition team in December, weeks after the Trump win, after Flynn Jr. promoted a Hillary Clinton conspiracy theory on Twitter called "Pizzagate."
