Tuesday's tweet came a day after New York Attorney General Letitia James subpoenaed two banks for records related to four of Trump's real estate projects and his failed bid to buy the Buffalo Bills.
The investigation's scope is not yet known at this time, additional reporting from Bloomberg noted. Trump also made attempts to raise portraits of his worth in order to obtain a loan in an attempt to purchase the Buffalo Bills, Cohen explained.
The president has previously claimed that James and her predecessors in the NY attorney general's office are politically biased and are unfairly targeting him. In extreme circumstances, the Times noted, the AG even has the authority to break up businesses found to be in violation of those laws.
Among the banks receiving subpoenas is Deutsche Bank, which has been among the very few willing to do business with Donald Trump.More news: BigBang’s Seungri Announces His Retirement From Entertainment Industry
The U.S. -based unit, which works with ultra-wealthy clients, lent Trump more than $270 million from 2012 to 2015 for his Doral golf resort outside Miami and the luxury hotel revamp of the Old Post Office Building in Washington, the Times writes.
Deutsche Bank and Investors Bank declined to comment.
In her victory speech on the night she was elected in November, she said, "I will be shining a bright light into every dark corner of his real estate dealings, and every dealing, demanding truthfulness at every turn". The Trump Organization did not respond to requests for comment. He's used similar language to criticize the various ongoing investigations into his rise from businessman to president. In 2017, Democrats on the House Financial Services Committee asked for results of a review the bank reportedly took of accounts held by Mr. Trump and members of his family to see if there were any connections to the Russian government, in relation to several governmental probes into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Her office is also overseeing a lawsuit against a Trump charitable foundation.
"Will never be treated fairly by these people - a total double standard of 'justice, '" he added on Twitter.
