New York Attorney General Letitia James issued subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Investors Bank Monday, related to four failed Trump Organization projects, a move prompted by Michael Cohen’s congressional testimony that President Donald Trump lied on his financial statements.

According to a Monday New York Times report, the inquiry is civil and not criminal in nature, though the scope is still unknown.

The subpoenas reportedly seek information about the financing of the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C., the Trump National Doral in Florida and the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago.

Per the Times, James is also unearthing documents pertaining to Trump’s failed bid to buy the Buffalo Bills in 2014.
