Fordham University has confirmed it received a letter from Donald Trump's then-lawyer threatening legal action if Trump's academic records became public.
Ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has testified to Congress that Trump directed him to write letters warning his schools and the College Board not to disclose his grades or SAT scores.
Cohen has given the House Oversight and Reform Committee a copy of his letter to Fordham. It was dated May 2015, about a month before Trump started his presidential campaign.
Fordham says the letter from Trump's lawyer was preceded by a phone call from a campaign staffer. Fordham says it's bound by federal law barring the release of student records.
Trump attended the Roman Catholic university in New York City for two years. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania.
Penn and the College Board declined to comment.
