Wall Street banks have handed over documents to congressional committees relating to Russians who may have had dealings with President Donald Trump, his family, or his business, The Wall Street Journal is reporting.

In addition, some banks are giving documents related to the president’s business to New York state investigators.

The newspaper, in a story posted Thursday, attributed the information to people familiar with the congressional probes and to people familiar with the New York investigation.

Bank of America Corp., Citigroup, Inc. Deutsche Bank AG, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo & Co. are among the firms which have recently turned over documents to congressional investigators, the Journal reported. Additional information is likely to be handed over in the coming weeks, according to the newspaper.

Meanwhile, Trump’s primary bank, Deutsche Bank, has provided emails, loan agreements and other papers related to the Trump Organization to New York Attorney General Letitia James. Investors Bancorp Inc. has turned over thousands of pages of financing records and emails to James, the Journal reported.

The newspaper noted the president has filed several lawsuits looking to stop lawmakers and states from gaining access to his records.

And the court battles “could drag on for months, if not years — and that, of course, is the president’s strategy,” said Saikrishna Prakash, a law professor at the University of Virginia. “The Democrats are seeking to investigate, embarrass the president, and he’s trying to delay his personal finances becoming public.”
