Deutsche Bank Starts Handing Over Trump Financial Records To NY AG As Part Of Probe: Report





Deutsche Bank has started turning over information on President Trump’s finances and dealings with Russia after being subpoenaed by the New York Attorney General as part of an investigation, CNN and Agence France-Presse each reported on Wednesday, citing anonymous sources.

The office of New York Attorney General Letitia James subpoenaed Deutsche Bank earlier this year for records on loans made to the president for several of his business projects.

According to CNN, the bank is turning over documents related to the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago, the Trump National Doral Miami resort and Trump’s unsuccessful attempts to buy the NFL’s Buffalo Bills.



A spokesperson for Deutsche Bank confirmed to the AFP that the bank is cooperating with the probe.

“We remain committed to cooperating with authorized investigations,” the spokesperson said.

The New York Times reported in March that the subpoena, which was reportedly sent to the bank last month, requested loan applications, mortgages and lines of credit.

House Democrats also subpoenaed the bank earlier this month, seeking information about Trump’s finances.

According to The New York Times, Deutsche Bank issued more than $2 billion in loans to Trump over the years, including during periods when his businesses struggled to get loans from other financial institutions.
