NYS investigating Trump projects, including failed bid for Buffalo Bills

This appears to be a reference to the recent news that the NY attorney general's office has issued subpoenas to two banks regarding multiple projects pursued by the Trump Organization.

The newspaper said the new civil investigation into Deutsche was prompted by congressional testimony last month of Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Deutsche Bank was listed on Mr. Trump's financial disclosure forms as his biggest creditor.

The New York Attorney General's Office has opened an investigation into four major projects of the Trump Organization, the real estate and branding firm owned by President Donald Trump. Cohen told the House Oversight Committee that the Trump Organization had sometimes inflated the value of its assets on financial statements to get loans, or better rates on insurance. Her office is also overseeing a lawsuit against a Trump charitable foundation. Although the German lender's investment bank had severed ties with Trump during the financial crisis, after he defaulted on a loan and then sued the bank, its wealth management unit continued to extend him credit.

Deutsche Bank declined to comment when approached by MailOnline.

Trump attempted to paint Cuomo as another Democrat who is targeting the president for political reasons - even though the governor does not control the state attorney general's office. The Trump Organization didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. Trump has also said that Cohen, who pleaded guilty to charges of illegal campaign contributions, is a liar who can not be trusted.

U.S. President Donald Trump talks to reporters as he departs to visit storm-hit areas of Alabama from the White House in Washington, U.S., March 8, 2019. Cohen also said Trump inflated his assets to show how wealthy he was and deflated them to help lower his real estate taxes, particularly on golf courses.

In May, five Democratic members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to Deutsche Bank CEO John Cryan asking the bank to turn in any records relating to Trump's accounts and any ties to Russian Federation.
