WASHINGTON (1010 WINS/AP) -- He may not be an official member of the White House staff, but the president's son, Donald Trump Jr., may be in hot water: The Senate intelligence committee has subpoenaed Trump's eldest son for additional testimony in the Russia probe, according to reports.

This marks the first time one of the president's children has been handed a subpoena.

The committee has renewed interest in talking to Trump Jr. after the president's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, testified earlier this year.

Cohen told a House committee in February that he had briefed Trump Jr. approximately 10 times about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2017 he was only "peripherally aware'' of the proposal.

The Senate intelligence committee has been investigating Russian election interference and Trump's ties to Russia for the last two years.
