NY attorney general investigates Trump projects

NY attorney general investigates Trump projects

New York's attorney general opened a new line of inquiry into President Trump's business dealings, issuing subpoenas to Deutsche Bank AG and Investors Bank over loans for real estate projects and a failed bid to buy the National Football League's Buffalo Bills, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Deutsche Bank, which couldn't be reached late Monday night for comment, previously has cooperated with other Trump-related inquiries, including a year ago when called on by NY bank regulators.

The New York Times was first to report on the subpoenas.

The investigation's scope is not yet known at this time, additional reporting from Bloomberg noted.

The subpoenas issued by the attorney general seek loan applications, as well as mortgages, credit lines and other documents related to the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., buildings in Chicago and NY and a golf course in the Miami area.

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.

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.

President Donald Trump blasted the state of NY and Governor Andrew Cuomo as the latest "PRESIDENTIAL HARASSERS" earlier tonight.

Deutsche Bank said in a statement that it remains "committed to cooperating with authorized investigations". Trump's company borrowed billions of dollars from the German bank over the years.

Deutsche Bank declined to comment when approached by MailOnline. A request for comment from the Trump Organization was not returned.

During his testimony in Washington, Cohen produced documents to back up some of his claims - including an alleged hush-money check signed by Trump and a financial statement that Cohen said was fraudulent.
