NEW YORK (AP) – President Trump has tweeted an apparent response to a New York investigation into his business empire, saying the state and Gov. Andrew Cuomo are now “proud members of the group of PRESIDENTIAL HARASSERS.”

Tuesday’s tweet came a day after New York Attorney General Letitia James subpoenaed two banks for records related to four of Trump’s real estate projects and his failed bid to buy the Buffalo Bills.

A person familiar with the matter says Monday’s subpoenas seek loan applications, mortgages and other records. The person wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

James and Cuomo are Democrats.

Trump ended his response by declaring: “The Witch Hunt continues!” He’s used similar language to criticize the various ongoing investigations into his rise from businessman to president.
