New York Attorney General Letitia James issued subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Investors Bank Monday, related to four failed Trump Organization projects, a move prompted by Michael Cohen's congressional testimony that President Donald Trump lied on his financial statements.
Cuomo's office didn't immediately respond. Cohen, who made himself valuable to Trump by burying his potentially embarrassing deeds, is now trying to revive them in an effort to reduce his time behind bars.
He did so in February, after House Intelligence chair Rep. Adam Schiff said he would probe alleged Trump Organization financial crimes.
The request to Deutsche Bank sought loan applications, mortgages, lines of credit and other financing transactions in connection with the Trump International Hotel in Washington, the Trump National Doral outside Miami, and the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago, The New York Times reported the person as saying. Trump could theoretically face criminal bank fraud charges if prosecutors could prove Trump meant to deceive with financial statements and that the bank relied on those figures, said John Coffee, a law professor at Columbia University.
New Jersey-based Investors Bank was subpoenaed for records connected to Trump Park Avenue.
