(CNN) New York prosecutors subpoenaed President Donald Trump's primary lender as part of the Manhattan district attorney's criminal investigation into the President's business practices, The New York Times reported Wednesday. Four people familiar with the inquiry told the newspaper that Deutsche Bank was subpoenaed last year for financial records that Trump and the Trump Organization provided the bank. The bank complied with the subpoena and provided the Manhattan district attorney's office with financial statements, records and other materials, two of the people familiar told The Times. Both Deutsche Bank and the Manhattan DA's office declined to comment Wednesday. News of the subpoena comes after prosecutors on Monday signaled that their investigation extends beyond hush-money payments and asked a federal judge to dismiss Trump's lawsuit challenging a subpoena for his financial records.
