Deutsche Bank starts turning over Trump financial records to NY officials: reports

Deutsche Bank has reportedly started turning over President Trump’s financial documents to the New York state attorney general’s office, according to reports.

CNN and Agence France-Presse each reported the development Wednesday, citing anonymous sources. 

The attorney general’s office earlier this year subpoenaed the bank for records on loans made to Trump for several of his business projects.

{mosads}CNN reported that Deutsche 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. The AFP report did not specify which documents the bank was beginning to give officials.

A spokesperson for Deutsche Bank told AFP that the bank is cooperating with the investigation but didn’t comment further.

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

Deutsche Bank declined comment to The Hill. 

The Trump Organization and the New York state attorney general’s office each did not immediately return requests for comment to The Hill. 

The New York state attorney general’s office reportedly issued the subpoena to Deutsche Bank last month, seeking documents pertaining to several of Trump’s projects and his effort to buy the Bills. 

The New York Times reported in March that the subpoena requested loan applications, mortgages and lines of credit.

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

The Times has previously reported that the 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.
