NY Att. Gen. subpoenas two banks over Trump Org. records

New York State is getting ready to take on the Trump Organization. 

According to the New York Times, the attorney general, Letitia James issued subpoenas to Deutsche and Investors Bank for financing records of four major Trump Organization projects. 

James’ probe all stemmed from Michael Cohen’s congressional testimony where he claimed that Trump inflated his assets in an effort to receive tax breaks. 

And Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer gave copies of statements that he said were given to Deutsche Bank. 

Now, the Times reports that the New York investigation is a civil matter, not a criminal case.
