New York State officials have subpoenaed the Trump Organization's longtime insurer Aon, one of the world's largest insurance brokerage firms, The New York Times reports.
The New York Department of Financial Services is probing into President Donald Trump's family business, specifically looking at insurance policies and claims involving the company. Although the Department of Financial services does not conduct criminal investigations, it is able to refer any possible criminal activity to prosecutors.
Trump's former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, testified before Congress last week, and implicated the Trump Organization overstated its value to insurance companies.
"To your knowledge did the president ever provide inflated assets to an insurance company?" Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., asked during Cohen's testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Panel.
Cohen answered, "Yes."
A spokesperson for Aon told the Times the company does not comment "on specific client matters." The White House referred the newspaper's request for comment to the Trump Organization, which did not respond to the Times. The Department of Financial Services declined to comment.
