Former Trump Lawyer, Michael Cohen, told Congress that Donald Trump inflated his assets to improve his odds of buying the National Football League’s Buffalo Bills.
He never got the team.
Late Monday night, the office of New York Attorney General Letitia James subpoenaed Deutsche Bank and Investors Bank for records related to Trump’s unsuccessful NFL bid and several other Trump Organization projects, a source familiar with the matter told ABC News.
BREAKING: The NY AG’s office issued subpoenas yesterday to two different banks, for funding records related to 4 Trump Org projects in Chicago, DC, Miami and NYC. Also records related to the attempted purchase of the Buffalo Bills. The two banks: Deutsche Bank and Investors Bank.

First reported by The New York Times, the subpoenas are based largely on Cohen’s recent testimony, the source told ABC News.
The subpoenas also are seeking records related to other transactions including Trump International Hotels in Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Florida.
A spokesperson for the bank told ABC News in a statement:
Investors Bank and the Trump Organization didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment late Monday.
Donald would do just about anything to own an NFL team.
Wouldn’t it be something if this was the Smoking Gun.
