Deutsche Bank turning over documents to investigators in Trump’s ‘nightmare’ come to life: report
Royalty-free stock photo ID: 196597040 WASHINGTON - MAY 27, 2014 - Real estate mogul Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka pose before his luncheon speech to the National Press Club.

Deutsche Bank has begun producing financial records subpoenaed last month by the New York attorney general related to an investigation into several Trump Organization projects, according to CNN. Attorney General Letitia James initiated a civil probe into financing related Donald Trump's family business following testimony from his former lawyer Michael Cohen that Trump manipulated the value of his assets when trying to obtain loans from various financial institutions. Deutsche Bank has the distinction of being one of the only financial institutions that has continued lending hundreds of millions of dollars to Trump, even after he was exposed as a serial defaulter.

Now the lender is actively turning over both emails and loan documents related to four Trump Organization projects, in particular: Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC; Trump National Doral Miami; Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago; and Trump's failed attempt to buy the NFL's Buffalo Bills franchise.

In addition to the New York AG inquiry, the House Intelligence and Financial Services committees are also scrutinizing the bank for its role in potential money laundering schemes related to Trump's businesses.
