NY AG Office Files Subpoenas Seeking Trump Organization's Records

The New York Attorney General's Office has opened an investigation into four major projects of the Trump Organization, the real estate and branding firm owned by President Donald Trump.

Late Monday night, the office of New York Attorney General Letitia James subpoenaed Deutsche Bank and Investors Bank for records related to Trump's unsuccessful National Football League bid and several other Trump Organization projects, a source familiar with the matter told ABC News.

The new probe comes after Mr. Trump's former attorney and personal fixer Michael Cohen recently testified to Congress that the president had inflated assets to obtain a bank loan from Deutsche Bank, which is technically considered fraud, in order to purchase the Bills team, but that effort never came to fruition.

Investors Bank, based in New Jersey, "was subpoenaed for records relating to Trump Park Avenue" in Manhattan, the Times said.

President Donald Trump went after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo after the state attorney general subpoenaed banking records that may show his company inflated its worth to get loans. The Trump Organization didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump attempted to paint Cuomo as another Democrat who is targeting the president for political reasons - even though the governor does not control the state attorney general's office. Deutsche Bank declined to comment.

Trump, threatened by a now-disloyal former employee, has sought to denigrate Cohen to his nearly 59 million Twitter followers by raising questions about his family members and accusing him of rampant lying.

Following that testimony New York's insurance regulator issued a subpoena to the Trump Organization's primary insurance broker, Aon Plc, for details about its relationship with the Trump Organization and Trump himself, according to a person familiar with the matter. Although the German lender's investment bank had severed ties with Trump during the financial crisis after he defaulted on a loan and then sued the bank, its wealth management unit continued to extend him credit.
