NY Attorney General Issues Subpoena For Bank Records Related To Trump Organization: Report
The New York attorney general’s office issued subpoenas on Monday to two banks for records relating to the funding of several Trump Organization projects, The New York Times reported Tuesday.
Citing a source briefed on the subpoenas, The Times reported that the office of New York Attorney General Letitia James opened a new inquiry based on the testimony of Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen before Congress last month.
According to The Times, the inquiry is a civil investigation, not a criminal probe and its scope and focus were unclear.
Michael Cohen testified that Trump inflated his assets and presented copies of financial statements he said were provided to Deutsche Bank.
Deutsche Bank is already the subject of a joint investigation between the House Financial Services and Intelligence Committees into Trump’s businesses and money laundering involving Russia.
Investors Bank, based in New Jersey, “was subpoenaed for records relating to Trump Park Avenue” in Manhattan, the Times said.
Political Dig has reached out to the New York attorney general’s office and Investors Bank. Deutsche Bank declined to comment on this story.
