Deutsche Bank Is Giving Trump Financial Records To NY Attorney General

Trump can’t sue or keep everything related to his finances hidden as Deutsche Bank is turning over his financial records to the New York attorney general.

CNN reported:

Last month, the office of New York Attorney General Letitia James issued subpoenas for records tied to funding for several Trump Organization projects.

The state’s top legal officer opened a civil probe after Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen testified to Congress in a public hearing that Trump had inflated his assets.

The bank is in the process of turning over documents, including emails and loan documents, related to Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC; the Trump National Doral Miami; the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago; and the unsuccessful effort to buy the NFL’s Buffalo Bills.

Congress is going to get Trump’s financial records

Trump is trying to make it as difficult as possible for Congress to get the information that they need in order to be able to conduct their investigations, but there are lots of ways around Trump’s obstruction. The state investigations into Trump could be a backdoor to Congress access to everything from Trump’s tax returns to his business records.

The president can order employees of the Executive Branch to defy subpoenas and document requests, but he can’t stop state investigations and subpoenas. Trump is delaying the inevitable. Deutsche Bank’s cooperation is proof that someone somewhere will comply with a subpoena, and Trump’s secrets will be revealed.
