Deutsche Bank has begun to provide records to New York Attorney General Leticia James in response to a subpoena for documents related to loans Deutsche Bank made to President Donald Trump, CNN reported Wednesday, citing an unnamed person familiar with the matter.

The subpoena followed testimony from former Trump fixer Michael Cohen to Congress that Trump inflated and deflated the valuation of his assets to suit his financial interests.

James issued subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Investors Bank in early March. The New York Times reported at the time that the inquiry was civil in nature, rather than criminal. The subpoenas were for documents related to four Trump Organization real estate projects as well as Trump’s failed effort to buy the Buffalo Bills, an effort Cohen mentioned in his testimony.

Both James’ office and Deutsche bank declined to comment, CNN reported.

James’ office has also sued the Trump Foundation, which the state argues Trump misused in order to help his 2016 presidential campaign. The foundation reached a deal with the state in December to dissolve and give away its assets.

Separately, House Democrats subpoenaed Deutsche Bank and other banks for documents related to Trump earlier this month, the Times first reported.
