If New York officials succeed in getting Trump financial records, it will trouble Trumpworld far more than any congressional fight.

Driving the news: Deutsche Bank has begun providing records to New York Attorney General Letitia James in response to a subpoena for documents related to loans made to President Trump and his business, CNN's Cristina Alesci reports.

  • The CNN report, which Axios has not confirmed, said the bank "is in the process of turning over documents, including emails and loan documents, related to Trump International Hotel in Washington ... the Trump National Doral Miami; the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago; and the unsuccessful effort to buy the NFL's Buffalo Bills."

Jay Sekulow, counsel to the president, tells Axios: "At this time, we cannot confirm the subpoena or any production. As with any demand for documents we will respond as appropriate."

  • "Our response will include litigation if necessary."
