Trump’s rebuke comes one day after New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) issued subpoenas to two banks for documents related to Trump hotel projects in Washington, Chicago and Miami as well as Trump’s attempted purchase of the Buffalo Bills football team, according to The New York Times.
While the probe is believed to be civil and not criminal, the new requests add to Trump’s legal headaches from federal, state and congressional probes into his administration, campaign and businesses.
